CPAP & Dry Mouth

In recent months, I have developed extreme dry mouth as a result of the CPAP.  I am a mouth breather when using CPAP.Recently, I saw an advertisement for the symptoms of dry mouth, but as usual, when I need the information to have a discussion with both my primary care  physician and my dentist I haven't seen the ad. Has anyone else seen the ad and can anyone remember the info in the ad?Thanks in advance,DanSee More

Questions to ask about your PSG and Titration Study

Questions to ask about your PSG and Titration Study

1. Did I have any central apneas? How many?

2. Were there any comorbidities? What were they?

3. Did I breathe or leak through my mouth? How often? What do you recommend to prevent it?

4. Did I exhibit Positional Sleep Apnea (PSA)? Was my apnea more severe in one sleeping position as compared to others? Is my pressure requirement higher in one position as compared to others? (Often sleep apnea is more severe when sleeping on the back.)

5. Is there anything else unusual about the results?

6. How will I know my therapy is preventing apneas?

7. I am determined to own a data-capable machine and software to monitor apneas, hypopneas and mask leak. This will allow me to call your office with specific questions if I have problems with the therapy. Will you help me with the appropriate prescription?

In addition to the questions:

1. Get a copy of your PSG. It is your legal right to have one.

2. Get a copy of your CPAP prescription.

3. Make sure the prescription calls for a humidifier with the machine.

My SleepGuide forum activities have been curtailed due to some business commitments. However, flying home today I saw something in the WSJ that I had to share with you. People outside the CPAP community are taking note of the dreadful problems when medical equipment can only be procured by prescription through a licensed DME. They also understand that if the regulations, prescription requirements, and licensing requirements are stripped away the patient, not to mention the U.S. taxpayer, will…See More

I have a vision that we will figure out an easy way to ensure that children develop wide, deep, healthy and attractive jaws and then obstructive sleep apnea becomes an obscure bit of history.

Well thanks for the welcome. I have been an occasional reader here since the forum started. I like following the posts of Drs. Park and Jones, Mike and you. I will have to look for you on the other forum.

I only have a few nights experience with high pressure. It's a long story, but I was titrated at 19 cm on my back. I tried 19 cm a few nights at home but I had total gastric insufflation which was destroying my sleep and other things.

I then titrated myself to 8 cm on my sides and tummy. That works well for me and I mostly sleep on my tummy.

Rooster, welcome to SleepGuide. I follow your comments with interest on our sister board. Glad to have you aboard and look forward to some of your wisdom and humor. I'm interested in particular about the problems with masks encountered with masks for those of us on higher IPAP (IPAP 22). I seem to remember you quoting some very high number for your IPAP.
Mary Z.
