I use a "pillow-type" cpap nose-only headgear. The neoprene strap is soooooo hot. I have wondered if anyone else has that problem and what they have done about it ?

I have a similar system (I think) and it has covers that go over the straps and stick to themselves with velcro. They are about 6" long and fold over the strap. There are 3 folds and stick together like the top of the envelope. If you ask your provider, I am sure they have them.

My sleep doctor told me she couldn't tell me how to adjust it, but she heard the instructions were on the internet. I found them.

Ding Ding Ding!!! We have a winner

I'm on my third machine, my first one only lasted about 7 years, the second one went 15 years and this last one is about 3 years old now.

This is just to give you an update on my idea. I have used the medical paper tape over my mouth every night since my original post. I have definitely made my DW a VERY HAPPY woman! It is extremely rare that she punches me to say I'm leaking air, probably once every two or three nights, and I just make a slight adjustment on the "pillow" type mask to correct the problem. Have any of you tried it and if so, what do you think ?

I use a CPAP, but I don't have a problem leaking through my mouth, as far as I know.

With my BI-PAP machine I sometimes leak air around my mouth, but my wife quickly gives me the signal (knuckle between the ribs). I get really claustrophobic with the full mouth and nose mask.

I totally agree with you on the nose pillows. I would never be able to get used to wearing the other type masks!

I use a full face mask. I also have a beard that makes santa claus looking clean shaven. Leaks?? So few times I don't even remember the last time. You can sure bet the DW is happy. Whatever, we cpap user need to use we are a least getting a good night sleep.
