Thanks for the feedback.
Keeping them clean is a concern for me.
Having a tether on my restricting movement is a concern, since I change position a lot.
There certainly is a wide variety of mask styles and hose attachment options available.
I do have a beard, which may have to be shaved, if I need a full face mask, rather than one of the nasal styles.
Humidifier or no humidifier?
I tried one of the off-the-shelf mouth piece jaw repositioning units a couple years ago, but my dentist advised against the off the shelf options because they can permanently alter a person’s bite, so I stopped using it. I don’t recall if it helped. I haven’t tried a dentist fitted unit.
If I try a CPAP and feel more refreshed in the morning and alert during the day, I’ll likely tolerate the inconveniences for the benefits.
I just had my sleep clinic consult today today, so I’ve got a lot of research to do before my mask fitting in a week or two.
