I am now using some fluffy wash cloths rolled up like an enchilada and it works great. Something wider than the dog toy seems to stay put. Make it big enough that it gives gentle pressure on your chin. I hated chin straps...it's just more crap on your face to irritate you. Sometimes I pull the neck band of my Tshirt over the ends to keep in place.(12-06-2013, 03:18 AM)MarkSchubart Wrote: I had the same problem. I now use the PureSom Ruby adjustable chin strap. Works like a charm.
Last night I used the Respironics strap and dog toy under chin trick. I must have been tired because I slept like the dead for 8 hours straight with fewer awakenings and a better AHI. The nasal pillows are definitely in!
Now with only the nose pillows, it feels so good to have my face uncovered. I can scratch my nose and it's easy to take on and off in the middle of the night.
Do I need to upload a picture of an enchilada for our Aussie friends? Only kidding!
Actually I used a dog toy with an oblong shape that worked quite well along with a respironics chin strap. I had a better night last night. I think I will be good with the nasal pillows I use with the nano headgear . I can upload a selfie of it but I don't know how on this site.
