Nose Bleed
#1
Nose Bleed
had a nosebleed this morning and still experiencing a little blood several hours later. I've read that nosebleeds with a C-Pap mask can be caused by low humidity. I have my humidity set at the highest level - 8 and the temperature at 82.  Any suggestions?

RE: Nose Bleed
It can also be caused by too high a humidity.

You are using nasal pillows? Is this the first night you've used them?

I have been using an Amara full face mask for a few months.   I haven't changed humidity or temperature settings since getting it. I was told to keep it at this setting after complaining of dry mouth.  I did have a cold last week.

RE: Nose Bleed
Your profile says you use the Brevida.

If it is just one night and it has never happened before, there's probably nothing to be concerned about. You can use lanolin or Ayr nasal gel to help if needed. I don't know if lanolin can go INSIDE the nostril but Ayr gel is made to do that.

RE: Nose Bleed
No on nose bleeding here, but I sometimes run a Vicks Warm Mist humidifier in bedroom to add humidity. I'm thinking it's a Vicks model V750 FWIW. I run my ASV humidifier at Manual 4-8 and heated hose on 86.

RE: Nose Bleed
I'm one of those people who got a nosebleed from too high of humidity. Started happening towards the end of March and only cleared up a couple of weeks ago when I switched to lower humidity.
