I am new to this whole sleep apnea stuff. I have had my machine for less then a month. I too have a small face and have had sores on my nose. I am determined to get quality sleep since I have most likely had sleep apnea my entire life. Try using mole skin on the bridge of your nose. It will give ypu the added height for a better seal.This seem funny but works if the bridge of your nose is small. My problem was air leaking and getting in my eyes. I am on my second mask and with this added no more air in my eyes.....at least at this time.
Yes, there is a heater but I unplugged it when water started going in the mask.
Thank you for welcoming me. I am starting on my 3rd week with my machine. I've adjusted to sleeping with the mask pretty well. I've always joked I could sleep anywhere. I feel more tired then I did before and found I will need a new mask fit. I just received a humidifier but I must be doing something wrong. It makes a gurgling sound and a lot of water was getting into my mask. I filled to just below the max line. Any idea?
I am recently diagnosed with sleep apnea and just received my machine through the assistance program. I am learning how to use my machine as well as my mask. I dont have a humidifier so dry mouth is a problem. I found XYLIMELTS at the local drug store.They work great for dry mouth. You can use them with your CPAP machine.
