> Hi Marcie -
> Do you belong to an OT List Serve that might address
> the following dilemma?
> Because of my athetoid CP hands, I can not adjust
> the head straps that attach to my plastic full face
> sleep apnea mask. Regular adjustments are essential
> to keep the mask from leaking. If the mask leaks,
> insufficient air is pumped into my lungs to keep me
> breathing at night.
> The straps go around the back of my head and adjust
> with velcro, They need to be adjusted with the mask
> on and once I get the mask on, my voice is so
> muffled that my wife can't hear my directions for
> adjusting the mask.
> I propose removing the straps and then attaching the
> plastic mask to the hole in a ski mask. The ski
> mask would adjust to the shape of my head and keep
> the plastic mask in place, Has anyone on this list
> serve had experience which would indicate if such
> an arrangement would or would not work? I'd
> appreciate your ideas.
