It will be one week tomorrow since I have been with the Cpap. I can tell a big difference in my sleep. I have two issues that I could use some help with. Issue #1 ~ Keeping a good seal on my mask is almost impossible. I have adjusted the straps which helps for a little while, but then it happens again. Issue #2 - Wake up during the night with an extremely dry mouth. I would appreciate any tips or suggestions that you might offer.

Sure... have tips!

#1 Let folks know about your equipment if you have an equipment related question. Pressure setting(s)? Mask type?
#2 Dry mouth... mouth is open while sleeping. Check the previous zillion posts on the subject for possible ways to mitigate this issue. Chin strap, mouth guard, tape, humidity, etc.
