Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: New Member Introduction
I am brand new member that has been on CPAP for many years. I don't see the technology as black magic and have always been frustrated by the 'closed' nature of the information sharing from doctors, equipment providers and insurance companies. I see this site as a new beginning in my CPAP use that will allow me to optimize my CPAP experience with a little education and experimentation. I look forward to my journey.
