need help after 1st night, nose-mouth mask, Respironics REMstar Auto-C (Part 2 of 3)
(Kansas City, MO (USA))
I just got my Respironics REMstar Auto A-Flex, and I was able to sleep on my back for the first time in 15 years! So - no back pain when I woke up! And I do feel slightly more refreshed.
It was my first night, and I'm wondering if some things could have gone better. First of all, I opted for the nose-and-mouth covering mask (I have had UPPP tonsil surgery, so I wanted to prevent mouth-leaking). I've wondered if any leaks could have occurred overnight.
Also, I woke up (just before dawn) with absolute dry-mouth. I suppose this means the reservoir needs to be filled with more distilled water?
I do appreciate the video clips on this web site. Does Respironics offer any DVDs or other instructional information? I just want to make sure I'm getting the most out of my CPAP device.
