What is the best way to ensure a sleep apnea mask does not unconsciously come off while sleeping?
I have sleep apnea, and I have tried wearing both a nose mask andfull mask and let me say for sure the only way to do this is to not wear it at all.
It is difficult to get used to using the mask - either variety. Just keep putting it back on, you will get used to it and the benefits will far outweigh the frustration. If you ease into it - for instance wear it for a couple of hours each time - soon you will be sleeping so well that you won't notice it any longer. If you continue to have problems I would call your doctor and see if they have prescribed the correct amount of cpap pressure. Good luck! Keep trying!
