I have a Resmed S9 with a Resmed full face mask.
I have this tendency to sleep with my mouth open, particularly if I roll onto my back. The result is that I wake up with a horribly dry mouth.
I rinse with a dry mouth solution call Biotene Mouthwash. Then back to bed and to try and get some more sleep.
I have the humidity of the humidifier set to maximum (at least, insofar as I can see).
The airtube is heated as well, so there's no "rain" fallout in the pipe. But none of this seems to help.
Short of taping my mouth shut I'm not sure what to do here.
Any ideas, folks?
It happens to me occasionally, being a mouth breather when I sleep. I have not found a solution yet, but many here find chin strips help.
I am not a Medical professional and I don't play one on the internet.

I'd Rather Be Sleeping
To clarify - you wear a full-face mask and still get a dry mouth from mouth breathing? I recently started using a FFM all the time as my brain decided that sleeping with my mouth open would be amusing. It has cured my bone dry mouth. Now I am wondering if that mask is making me keep my mouth closed.
