"Thank you Kath :) I think I'll get him to have a look at the soft cap because it looks like it would cover the sores and prevent more."

Kath Hope replied to Jenny Rankin's discussion Advice on sores from head straps
"Sorry to hear this Jenny. It sounds like he either has an allergy to the straps or he's having to fasten them too tight. If his mask is compatible, I would try the softcap headgear.  In actual fact I use it myself with my FitLife as…"

Kath Hope replied to The SleepGuide Crew's discussion Welcome from Kath & Mike - Feel Free to Introduce Yourself Here
"I was going to say similar.  I think Jonathan has written the wrong info by mistake. Deionised is what's used for irons, kettles etc., and should be avoided. Distilled is fine to use. Pure is similar and what a lot of the hospitals use. "

Jonathan replied to The SleepGuide Crew's discussion Welcome from Kath & Mike - Feel Free to Introduce Yourself Here
"Hi Google translates gereinigtes Wasser as purified water, so we're on the right track.  Distilled water for steam irons etc. is apparently produced using some nasty chemical processes, and isn't medical grade.  Tesco still…"
