Re: Chronic dry mouth from CPAP therapy

Re: Newbie Intro with a question

When you find a mask that works for you not only do you want spares in case it breaks but get as many as you think you will need because that is when the mfg will suddenly stop making your fav mask - not kidding.

Here's a link with a lot of topics about creative ways to prevent mouth breathing while sleeping: http://www.cpaptalk.com/viewt...

Re: What do you suppose they will charge me?

I'll be too narcotized to put up a fight. Gonna be a lot of relaxed collapsed tissue in the airway. All the more reason, imho, to do what some others have suggested and bring your machine, mask, hose, humidifier, and a little bottle of distilled water -- along with a savvy, gutsy relative or friend...
