I have been using CPAP Resmed Airsense 10, with nose pillow for a week. I was diagnosed with mild obstructive apnea. With the machine, I get an AHI of less than 1.0 for the last week, which is good. But I still wake up multiple times a night because just as I fall into deep sleep air blows into mouth, shoves my lips open, and it wakes me up. It is happening so many times (I can remember 4 or 5 each night), that I feel more like a zombie than before I was using the machine.

5 nights ago, I duct taped my mouth before going to bed, but it didn't help because the pressure would make my mouth balloon something fierce, and wake me up. Then, I added a chin strap, but the ballooning mouth kept happening. Then the last three nights, I added another chin strap, but this time, fastened it across my face at my lips and cheeks in hopes that the strap would prevent my mouth from ballooning. Although it doesn't balloon, the air is getting into spaces between my gums and lips, and it feels awful and keeps waking me up.

It takes 30 minutes to tape up, fasten the two chin straps, and hookup my CPAP. Is there an alternative to this madness????

Ditch the nasal mask, duct tape and chinstraps and get a Full Face Mask for starters.

So, how did it go? I am having the same issues with being startled awake by the gush of air out of my mouth.

The face mask didn't work for me. I toss and turn a lot in bed, and the slightest nudge of my face mask causes massive leaks. I had to switch back to the nose pillows, and I am back to my 30min routine of wrapping up my face in tape and chinstraps. It works, but it's really uncomfortable. Especially, when I get thirsty at night.

Have you tried doing the painter's tape method that Jason recommended in one of his videos? That is more comfortable than duct tape!! I would try that first. I tried the chin strap once and it was very painful for me. If those don't work try a different full face mask and make sure straps are secure. Watch Jason's videos for recommendations on masks that give the least amount of leakage. There's a new Resmed f30 that looks promising. I plan to try that out. I am forced to do full face because of my allergies :(
