Okay I didn't want to hijack another person's thread, so I parted Sleeprider's post here onto a new thread.

This is fascinating to me. During my titration, when I tried to talk with my nasal mask on, the only audible thing I could produce was gasps of air! I don't see how it is possible to talk at all with the machine running. And it was one of the things that concerned me... am I gonna have to take this mask off every time I need to tell hubby or the dog something?

So, how many of you have figured out how to talk & drink with your mask on? And was there anything special you figured out, that helped you be able to do this? All advice & tips greatly appreciated! Smile

I talk and drink with my nasal mask on but not everyone can. I think part of it depends on the nasal mask. My thought and suggestion is that if you can't talk with the mask on, maybe try turning the machine off. You probably could just take the hose off but I wouldn't suggest that as the machine will still be on. YMMV
