Cpap user having surgery
« on: February 06, 2019, 11:47:20 pm »
I’m having surgery at the end of the month, middle fossa approach. There’s no question that my cpap mask will not fit after surgery without some sort of modification because a strap is just above my ear. Has anyone else had a hospital respiratory therapist rig their mask/straps so it fits post surgery?

Hi. Yes, we had to cut one of the straps as I recall. I ended up not using until after I was home, but I think it worked well enough.
