Bald head and CPAP masks
When forced to wear a brain-bucket or respirator I wear a bandanna because I hate the straps on my bare haid. How do you other chrome domes deal with friction/irritation/whatever of CPAP mask straps?

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: Bald head and CPAP masks
Thank you very much!
I think I'll get an extra and stick a maglite in the hose strap LOL

You can tell I'm a "first year".

Love the maglite idea... might get one just for that!

I am not bald (yay) but it seems like it would fit the ticket - and bonus, its several ppl's favorite chinstrap. I haven't used it - YMMV

Someone I know wears a toque/knit cap. Maybe a wig if you want to live large a little. Wink

I wonder how I'd look as a redhead? Too-funny

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

RE: Bald head and CPAP masks
Our resident expert in matters such as this is Herb. He doesn't come around as frequently as he used to, but I can tell you that he, even more than I, are ardent believers in the P10 pillows mask. For many reasons: In Herb's case one of which is the strap on the less than highly populated head thing.

It's not that Herb is bald, he just keeps his hair in the closet.

Oh, and about the P10 thing: Eventually everyone will use it.

Resistance is futile.

RE: Bald head and CPAP masks
I use the type of caps motorcycle riders and welders use - i.e. skull cap. These can be purchased in many designs (most available at truck stops I think). They are also easy to throw in the wash.
