[CPAP] Using tissue in mask
#1
Using tissue in mask
Hello! I was wondering if anyone has tried putting tissue in your mask to collect moisture?? I am worried it's not safe.

RE: Using tissue in mask
Hi, Mlenchak

I would be concerned that the Kleenex might shift and block airflow.  It would be better to try to eliminate the moisture (rainout) in other ways.  Here's a wiki section on this:

It's also beneficial to be sure the machine is lower than your head or there is a dip in the hose below head level so that any condensation runs downward away from your mask.

There have been some recent posts on this topic, too, which you'll see if you search for rainout.

Good luck!
