thanks @jal333 , @johnbishop – The video was very interesting. I guess I'll have to buy the book to discover what he's suggesting 🙂

@jal333 What an interesting idea. I use a CPAP mask, sometimes my mouth opens which causes me dry mouth and may disrupt my sleep. I was thinking about getting a chin strap, maybe I'll try the tape first (though my wife will probably be scared I might somehow manage to swallow it). What type of tape are you using? The thick brown tape or something thin like Micropore (https://www.amazon.com/Micropore-Surgical-Tape-Yards-Dispenser/dp/B00ICF3TG2 )?

Thanks @danab , I use a similar mask made by Resmed. What do you do if you wake up at night and want to drink? I keep a bottle next to my bed, and slide the cushion up above my nose so I can take a sip. Will I have to remove the mask and chin strap?

They probably want to charge you extra for the chin strap….

I use a Resmed N30i nasal cushion mask. I find it hard to imagine how the chin strap is going to work with it (the mask "straps" that come down the sides of the face to the nose are actually the tubes through which the air flows). Anyone had experience with this combination?
(BTW, I was suffering a lot from dry air – felt like my sinuses were being fried by it – the humidifier helped a lot with that. But my mouth does open occasionally, causing dry mouth.)

Thanks Gene. What's the difference between the two machines?
