One more thing for me to try not to forget
Yesterday, I cleaned my water tank and left it out to air dry. Normally when I have the tank out of the humidifier for a short time, I leave the cover open. Yesterday I closed it because it was going to be a while. You can probably see where this is going. This morning I woke up with my nasal passages stinging with each breath but no dry mouth. I got up and opened the humidifier to find out if the tank had gone dry and......no tank!!! It was sitting on the kitchen counter all filled and ready to go. Huhsign Oh-jeez Huh

Makes me wonder if I could do okay without the humidifier entirely??

Best Regards,

PaytonA

I could only guess since I'm not you but for me, no. You said your nasal passages were stinging, there probably is your answer. You'd usually get a dry mouth if you breath through your mouth (or some other medical reason). I couldn't do that with the A10. The A10 won't give me air without the tank in place (or the cover that replaces the tank). It would just jet out the side.

Hi PaytonA,
The "things to do before bedtime list" seems to grow longer and longer, doesn't it, (Ha-Ha?) I know it does for me.
I'm not able to do without humidity for more than a couple days.
Better luck remembering your full water chamber tonight.

Knee board and a pre-sleep check list?

I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

I have a pre-sleep check list. It is "Now I lay me down to sleep."

Check.

End of List.

If the humidifier makes things more comfortable I would stick with it. I keep the gallon of distilled water on my dresser so that I'm already by my machine, well at least in the same room, when I fill it.
