CPAP is driving me nuts!

Yes, I think too high of a heat setting can be bad for dry mouth because it can cause all the water to be used up, which can cause worse dry mouth than if the water were cooler and not all used up.

Large leaks can also cause the humidifier to use up water very fast. Even if not all the water is used up, large leaks can cause the humidifier to not work as well, causing lower humidity.

Some folks have reported good results eliminating leaks by using a mask liner. I have good results eliminating leaks by using a ResMed Gecko Nasal pad.

Take care,

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
