Headgear change out frequency
#11
RE: Headgear change out frequency
Ick is the headgear I have now. My puppy got out of her crate and one of the things she destroyed was my Nuance headgear. Luckily I had a backup. But it was one of the older styles where the back strap had that nasty stickiness to it? No amount of cleaning will ever remove that black stuff. I'm having to use it until Wednesday when the DME is open and I can get a replacement. I try to not look at it but I do wince when I take it off in the morning because it pulls hair out.

I also tend to only think about the pillows and hose and not the headgear itself. So looking at it in the bright lights of a hotel last week (the one that got destroyed), I realized it has been a while since it was cleaned. I really need a bedside light.
