I thought it would be better to get replies from many people rather than just my own opinion.

Trish Britton Wrote:Hey there SuperSleeper,
How are you doing? I'm doing well but, I've come callin' again to ask you a couple questions one about chin straps and the other about nasal pillow masks.. First of all, I have a "Resmed S9 AutoSet™ For Her Auto-CPAP System with H5i™ Heated Humidifier,"" ( I use a "Resmed" "Mirage Activa™ LT Nasal CPAP/BiLevel Mask, (small,) with Headgear," (Small,) my pressure is 10, However, I'm not sure of my total range.
anyway, right now, I'm using the "Resmed Chin Strap, (Small,) but it doesn't stay on my head very well by the time I get my mask on because it is so narrow. I have tried some others that cover more space, but THEY, make me feel abit clostraphobic.
Next question: When I was using my first "Respironics" machine, I tried the "ComfortLite 2 Cushion and Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask With Headgear - Direct Seal 4-5 and Simple Cushions Small/Medium" but THEY irritated my nose so bad inspite of using moisture creams, lubricants, etc. . I think they might be better but what do you do if you've tried the creams and lubricants to no avail?
I'm sorry if this is too much detail, (more than you probably wanted to know, Ha-Ha-Ha,) I just figured this would help you in answering my questions.
Feel free to put it on the forum as I have a difficult time working the blog.
