[CPAP] Not comfortable - Resmed S10 Cpap
#1
Hi,

I have started using Resmed s10 Cpap machine with Resmed Autofit 10 full face mask. But I am getting dry mouth and the whole therapy is not working on me. In the morning I am feeling the same with or without using cpap machine. Any suggestions will be appreciated?

How many nights have you used the machine?
What are the pressure settings on the machine (max?, min?)
How well does your mask fit?
Do you have a measure of how much mask leakage you are getting?
If you don't have a quantitative measure of leakage, are you feeling air blowing across your face or eyes as it leaks out from the mask?

Hi paryaniafroze,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
It may take a while before you notice improvements, so just stick with it.
Hang in there for more suggestions and answers to your questions.
Much success to you as you adjust to CPAP therapy.

I did not get on with my first mask which covered nose and mouth, but things got a whole lot better with just a nasal mask. Are you in a position to be able to try different masks?
