Hang in there!
Thanks Shastzi for your kind encouragement ...
I am still struggling with the FF mask & open mouth issues ! I really do not know why I am still woken up due to the air being pumped into my mouth . I feel the air ballooning up my cheeks after a few hours and wake up , even though my machine is an APAP with auto range set at 5 - 20 cm H2O !
In the 2 previous nights, I even tried mouth taping . The AHI decreased 50% but I still woke up due to air pressure in my mouth ( i.e. my mouth filled with air ) . I had to remove the tape to let the air out , retaped, re-put the mask on and went back to sleep !
The air may come from nose breathing ? I really do not know . I just wonder if anyone tapes his mouth and has similar experience ?
Please comment . Thanks.
