RE: A question or two from a newbie
Hi again Jethro, Well hopefully you and your CPAP machine can at least have a WORKING relationship, (Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha,) just try to hang in there with it and maybe, just maybe, you can become friends with it. Again, best of luck to you.

RE: A question or two from a newbie
Even with a full face mask and a humidifier, breathing through your mouth can dry you out. Get or make a chin strap. You can try a 3 inch non-adhesive Ace bandage wrapped under your chin and over your head to try and keep your mouth closed.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
