but don't people treating their sleep apnea use about that amount with the canules when they sleep? I think I read about that but I'm not sure. Ask the respiratory therapist that deals with your tanks about it's safety.
I do something similar to what you tried. After about a week of waking up in pain every half-hour to hour I will, at about 4 in the morning, leave the mask on at it's 10-12 l p/m and get 4 or more hours of sleep that way. I only do that once or twice at the most in a given week and I try not to succumb to the lure of knowing it will help during most weeks. Primarily because I have an idea of what the long-term effects are of that.
