RE: Newbie need some help
MHarwell, I would like you to start your own thread and let some of us assist you there.  This is a thread about a different problem initiated by another person.  Please start a thread with an appropriate title and we'll get to you almost right away.

RE: Newbie need some help
I've requested this to be split and moved to its own thread.

Post your nightly thread so we can see a reason

1. You are maybe mouth breathing, review the Mask Primer for help.

2. Increase humidifier temp to increase delivered humidification

3. Use heated hose and or hose cozie to prevent condensation and rainout.

Use products such as bioteme to reduce dryness

Welcome to Apnea Board.

We'll need clued in on what PAP machine you have, the mask, and what you've tried. Your profile isn't filled out and we'd rather not guess.

Dry mouth is a broad topic so we'd need some specifics. What have you tried? And show us an OSCAR chart to see that aspect.

Others have had to resolve mouth leaks. Some have had to used Xylimelts. Some have had to tape their mouth to prevent leaks.
