Mask noise
#1
Has anyone had this happen?

I was awakened by a bubbling noise from my nasal mask this morning. I adjusted the mask, then it happened again. The noise was from one side of the mask. I expect it was about fit, but this was the first time I've ever had this before and wanted to know if you all have experienced it. I ended up taking the mask off and readjusting and got a couple more hours of sleep without it recurring. I looked at the monitor and checked my stats and there is nothing there about a large leak.

I've heard this noise in the past; it usually had to do with water in the hose. You sure it was coming from the mask, itself?

Maybe a few drops of water in the piece that the pillows attach to? I have heard bubbling coming from the mask and that was when I realized at the last minute that I meant to wash it and forgot so there was no time to dry it properly! ha! It went away eventually!
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

Hi eaglett1111, It sounds like it might just be a case of re-positioning the mask. I know what mj is talking about, I have had water in my mask from washing it and not getting it dry andthat can make a noise, too. CONTINUED SUCCESS!
