I was avoiding the full-face mask, so what does the chin strap look like?
I too am a mouth breather and have tried several chin straps. Finally after trying quite a few I settled on the ResMed "Chin Restraint". It'd small, lightweight and easily adjusted.
You want to be careful and not have it too tight, just enough to hold your mouth closed.
Good Luck and don't give up.
I just realized I'm more in demand and very valuable....I'm an antique!!
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Sometimes people feel the need to set pressure up a bit if they feel like they can't get enough air and you might try a chinstrap and see if that helps you to keep your mouth closed.
Hang in there for more responses to your post and much success to you as you continue your CPAP therapy.
Don't be afraid to change your own pressure. Even though the evil DME will sternly warn you in their documentation not to. For example this is from paperwork my DME gave me: "The level of air pressure you require is commonly determined in your sleep study and then prescribed by your physician. It may not be changed without their permission." Yeah well, oops. I changed mine without their permission. Someone call the PAP po po. You should know the reason why you are changing it though that's a given.
Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.
I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses.
Pretty much everyone in authority looks the other way.
Its essentially a disclaimer; something legal makes them do. If you leave a rope dangling from a branch on a tree in your yard, and someone climbs that rope, even without permission to be on your properly, and falls, guess who gets sued?
But few are so militant as to have an issue when you change your own pressure, as long as you convince them that you know what you are doing. "I was thinking I might change my pressure from 7 to 19, just for giggles" does not instill confidence. "I changed my minimum pressure from 7 to 10 because I was still getting obstructives when the pressure was low and now my AHI went from 8 down to 2" probably would go over just a little better.
I think that you just found it!!
