The man I Love has severe apnea and is a long time cpap user and can’t even take an afternoon nap without it. Recently he has started snoring; even with the machine working well. Every breath is audible. He wears a full mask and a chin strap to keep his mouth shut.
I don’t know what to do. I can’t keep punching him all night in hopes of falling back to sleep myself before it begins again. Either way neither of us sleeps well.
He has tried sleeping with a wedge pillow but it caused back and neck pain, he now tries piling pillows up but always slides back down.

This is awful! Any advice is most welcome!

Thank you

It's possible that he needs a pressure adjustment. Is he using any software to monitor his sleep.

Has he had any changes in medications or has he been busier at work and is more tired than usual because of it? Chin straps won't always work, if sleeping inclined doesn't work, maybe a mouth guard will help.
