Another reason to get a CPAP machine

I wrote here about how much my life has improved since getting tested for apnea and getting a CPAP machine. Now it suddenly occurs to me that there may be a secondary reason I've been sleeping better since then- the CPAP machine hisses like Darth Vader in use. Why would objectionable noises make me sleep better? Watch:

Joel,
If the machine hisses, you may have a leak in your CPAP mask! Most machines emit a very low hum. Be sure to consult with your medical professional about the hissing. You may not be getting the full benefit of your CPAP machine if there is a leak.
Yours,
Fellow CPAP user
