    I will call the suplly company, and see about getting prescription for battery.
    I don't think a nasel only will work for me, I cant keep my mouth shut.
    I also use the resmed. Have had it for ten years. I went through a variety of masks, finally settled on the full face... Took less than an hour to get used to it... According to wife. Went through the rain out problem as well, woke up several nights to a loud bubbling sound , made the mistake once of lifting the hose to try and figure out the problem... Damned near drowned. Tweaked things and no more rain. Only problem ow is I wake up some nights with the mask in my hand and not on my face. Wife thinks this is funny to see me sound asleep with the mask in mid air.

Really does help in that dept.
    I am going to look at a pillow today, that is supposed to have the cutout! I also sleep with one arm under my head, and sometimes wake up feeling like someone tried to rip my arm off.
    I will update soon.
    Slept ok last night, my mornings " I seem less grouchy".
    Did have a bit of a sore throat, and a stuffy nose, so I will back track and see what oil was recommended on the first few pages.

To stop this in the tube have someone sew a "Cozy" for it. That is a tube of cloth that covers the whole CPAP tube. My temperature on mine is set at zero, I can get by on passive humidification. In fact I have been known to put distilled water ice cubes in my tank in the summer. Rain out is very common in the winter. I heard a lot that they couldn't use their CPAP when they had a plugged up nose. BS , get some Pure Eucalyptus oil, put a few drops in the tub. Just like a aroma therapy "Vaporizer".
    The newer CPAP's are real quiet. I always preferred the Resmed brand but to each his own.
    The condensation issue is good, setting on 2 now. I will grab Some Pure Eucalyptus Oil.
    And, yes, its a Resmed AirSense 10 Autoset.

    When I first started using the heated humidifier, I almost drowned also. About the waking up with mask in hand, you might want to have your CPAP "Downloaded". That is where they take the chip and actually read it. It can tell you how you are doing on a night by night basis. I know I have had to have minor changes through the years.

    Ok, no pillows that I saw were worth a shit.
    I see some online, probably order one.
    Also stopped by battery store, to get quote, and will probably end up with just a DC converter, tied to the truck.

    If I remember correctly; the brand of CPAP pillow we carried was Invacare. We did not sell a lot of them but I think it was the best offered at the time. We conducted business differently. I had 3-5 patients that helped me test equipment.. If the supplier wanted me to carry an item, they had to give me several of them free to try out. I gave them to patients and myself or wife. We used them for 1 week. Then we got together and talked about them. If the majority liked and got benefit from them we then carried the item.
