Is your humidity set correctly? The most common fix for dryness is increasing your humidity or temperature of your heated tubing (if applicable). You may notice that you need an increase in humidity when the seasons change. (Ex. winter is a lot drier where as in summer there is a lot more humidity in the air.)
Are sleeping with your mouth open? If an increase in humidity does not alleviate the dryness, it may be due to the fact that you are wearing a nasal or nasal pillow mask and mouth breathing while you are asleep. Please call us to discuss other options like a full face mask or chinstrap.
Is your mask over 6 months old? If your mask is over 6 months old it becomes more difficult to maintain a proper seal. When air leaks from the mask, the moisture goes with it.
Are you taking any medication? A dry mouth can also be a side effect of certain medications. People on antidepressants, heart medication and people with diabetes (type 1 and 2) may experience an increase in dryness. There are mouth sprays available to help with this.
Is your tubing in good condition? Check for any holes/leaks in the tubing. Any leaks in your tubing could cause you to lose your humidity.
