Hi. I'm finding the Airsense 10 the hospital gave me, the humidifier chamber runs dry. It's not even on max settings, which I'm guessing would empty it a lot quicker. Seems like a big design…Continue

"I previously had a DeVilbiss Sleepcube and the dehumidifier did sometimes run dry.  On the other hand I now have an AirSense 10 and it never runs dry, and I've had the humidity turned up high."

Hi. I'm finding the Airsense 10 the hospital gave me, the humidifier chamber runs dry. It's not even on max settings, which I'm guessing would empty it a lot quicker. Seems like a big design oversight to me. Does anyone else have this trouble? The water supply in the Sleepcube they gave me before would last all night easily, but they don't use them any more.See More

"A bit of medical micropore tape over the lips can work pretty well. You just need an inch and a half like a Hitler moustache, no need to tape along the entire lips. Can get tape from Home Bargains or Poundstretcher type shops for about a quid."
