The only way I am able to get adequate moisture is for there to be "significant" 'rain out' in my tube or mask. I am starting to feel like a fish. However, I feel so much better and can breath so much easier it is worth whatever baptism I might get.
My issue is with the weather changing or when traveling... I am having a difficult time adjusting my ASV to maintain the necessary moisture to meet my demand for moisture.

It is so disheartening to go through hundreds of pages on NIH research activities and see less than a dozen, if that many studies looking at this condition.
Restorative rest is so critical... why are they ignoring CA? Collaborative research design will provide important trends and overwhelming concerns in a more timely fashion. This initiative gives new hope to many patients who have felt, and many times been, unheard. Thank you for stepping up.
