My mom (around 70) is using the ResMed Airsense 10 autoset for Her for 4 months and stopped for 6 months as not able to adjust. Now she is trying again. Her complaints is when she lost conscious, then with mouth and nose breath, the air in the mask seems too strong and woke her up (She has sleep disorder and sleep onset insomnia) and hard to fall sleep again. Also nose get congestion. So i did ask her to use nasal wash and the OTC steriod Fluticasone twice a day. Please advice if anything can help her adjust the mask usage. Please let me know any suggestion. thanks a lot

If she is suffering nasal congestion humidification may help. How is her humidifier set? Try turning it up by one notch and see if that helps. In not try turning it up again.
