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

"Mary, hope your well, I believe bi-flex on the Philips is like EPR on the Resmed and is a comfort setting for your exhalation, I'm not sure what the settings are on the Philips but it should allow you more tme to exhale."

Terry Vella replied to ZolliStar's discussion Do I really need distilled water? In other words: What's wrong with using tap water?
"Zollistar, yes I do, 2 litre's isn't that heavy and the shopping centre is fairly close. Some other people boil water and let it cool and use it that way, it's supposed to remove the chemicals.   The dogs still going.  "

Terry Vella replied to ZolliStar's discussion Do I really need distilled water? In other words: What's wrong with using tap water?
"Zollistar, filtered water should be fine. I'm lucky here in Australia you can buy a 2 litre bottle from the supermarket for $1.59 so I use that and it lasts me two weeks."

I thought I would give the Sleepweaver a try of at least a week (Fri)and hope I could adjust as some others have indicated things got better with time. I do have the Mirqge Quattro on standby together with a CPAPSeal gel liner. Unfortunately so far even that combination leaks. Becky is sending me some RemZzzs liners so perhaps they will assist with the Quattro.

Terry. My ramp up starts at 6.5 but the auto part is restricted to the 12.5 a 15 band. I may call my tech to adjust it today as I am having no luck with the Sleepweaver
Under these conditions.
