If you have the house heat on, it could just be the air is dryer. You may need to bump the humidifier up a bit.

Also, if this is the first time you have used the mask, there *may* be a bit of stuff in the mask that you are sensitive to. I hate new masks fresh out of the box and plastic. They always have an odd smell to them. When I get a new mask, I set up the machine and turn it on for a few hours to help get the stink out.

Paula02,

We have electric heat in our house and it can be adjusted in each room. When you advise bumping up the humidifier a bit, are you referring to the humidifier on the S9? Sorry for a dumb question, I've just had the worse headache most of the day and it is hard to think straight. Plus I got woke up at 5:00 a.m. by a "wrong number" Sad

Hi GrammaBear, You might turn up the humidity on your CPAP machine a notch.
Best of luck and I hope you feel better tomorrow, that's a bummer, getting awakened by a wrong number, frustrating.

Yes, sorry, I meant on the machine. Too much humidity can also cause dryness, odd but true. So just go up a bit. Like, if you are on 70, go to 72. Give it several nights and if it is better but still there, go up another 2.

It was frustrating because we very seldom go out for supper, but last night was the shop Christmas party where my husband works. We stayed up late talking with friends and lost track of time.

Paula, Unless I have mis-understood how my machine operates, the humidity goes by numbers 1 through 6. But I can turn those numbers to a higher number a little bit at a time.

RE: Aloha mask and climateline tubing
Using nasal pillows and having your throat get sore/dry, I would suspect mouth breathing. If humidy is low enough to cause sore/dry throat, I would think it would cause nasal dryness/burning.

Humidity sets 1 - 6. If you have Climate on Manual or Patient, be aware that if you bump up the humidity you might also have to increase hose temp. or you could get rain out.

RE: Aloha mask and climateline tubing
If you are only seeing numbers (1-6) , then either you have it set to manual or your climateline is not completely attached. But yes, turning the number up is adjusting the humidifier part. The temp part is for the climateline.

When you are on the home screen, does it have 3 icons down the left side or 4?

If you do not see the temperature icon, then the climate line is not connected right.
