Default Re: Trilogy Masks?

My husband gave up on sleeping with his Trilogy and facemask. Bulbar adds complications. He can only side sleep due to orthopnea (shortness of breath when supine). He gets severe drymouth because his mouth flops open, but can't nose breathe because of chronic (all his life) stuffiness. He's tried Biotene to moisturize but that caused severe coughing and had him up all night because he has a weak cough. He's been outfitted with a humidifier but that didn't help at all. He also had that same problem, Barbie, with it sliding out of position while laying on his side. He gave up. Solution? He uses it during the day sitting up watching TV.

I think that is something that we have to deal with, I have dry mouth and face farts, the trilogy is up so high that I wake up with a stomach full of air, real burps and farts also... I know TMI
