I heard a radio commercial from Better Rest for their SoClean 2. I was wondering if anyone has experience with this device and can give honest feedback. I am about 6 months in on using a CPAP and find myself very forgetful on cleaning the tube and pillows and this look like a great solution if it really works.
In regards to your dry mouth issue; I have always been a mouth breather until I went on a CPAP with Nose Pillows. However there are days when I may be feeling congested at sleep time (from allergies, cold or maybe put a few too many back) where I would wake up with a dry mouth. Similar to you it doesn’t throw my numbers off. I found that using a saliva inducing mouthwash like Biotene on those nights takes care of that. In fact my Respiratory Specialist suggested this after I begin asking about acquiring a full face mask Otherwise using the pillows really force my mouth closed. Could your issues be on nights of congestions? Either way try giving Biotene (I use Kroger store brand) a shot. In regards to your lady’s issue; did she ever try the pillows? I know you say they aren’t an option. As I mentioned before I was completely a mouth breather until I started using the CPAP with the Pillows. When I had my second sleep night at the Sleep Center (where I did my study at), not only did they fit for the correct pressure they had me try all three styles of masks to see which was the most comfortable while achieving the best results, changing the equipment through the night where needed. I was expecting to have to use a full face mask but was very surprised and happy I didn’t have to. Would the option for your lady to go back for a sleep night and have them work to fit her better? Also the company I use for my equipment has an in-house Respiratory Specialist whom has been my go to. Anything like that with her equipment provider?
