Heated vs. Unheated Hose
#11
(11-22-2014, 07:44 PM)pdeli Wrote: I have been off of my Bi-Pap for nearly 10 days as a result of a sawdust reaction that caused a very sore throat, chest congestion, and serious coughing. It was the sore throat that caused me to abandon the therapy simply because it further dried my throat to the extent that it was painful to swallow.

My sleep doc has ordered a heated hose (with a $40 co-pay) but now the sore throat seems manageable. I plan to use the Bi-Pap tonight to see if the throat issue is really gone.

My question is; how can the heated hose help, sore throat or not?

I bought my heated hose online and out of pocket and it only cost me slightly more than $40!!

Edit: I had not seen your last post. Now I understand.
