I read where you have unsuccessfully tried full face masks. (Don't blame you, a Quatro FX almost took my nose off with pressure sores), but you MAY want to consider a TOTAL face mask. You can keep it handy for colds, stuffy noses or any such emergency.
I keep the FitLife on hand. This HUGE masks engulfs your face. It covers the eyes, nose and mouth and basically runs around the perimeter of your face.
You do need to keep the room cool because the air can feel a bit warm, but it allows you to breathe through your mouth without having to have ANYTHING on your nose.

Thank you - I'll look into that. Really was a bad feeling - not having the use of the machine.
