Sleep2snore replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion Cold air
"Don't know what machine ou have, but a heated hose can help a lot. You can get them as a stand alone but it is not ideal. If your machine has the facility for a heated hose it might be worth the investment. Heating the room will help."

Sleep2snore replied to Renee Rowlands's discussion Recommendation please for Oximeter purchase.
"There are plenty on the market, but one thing I would make sure it did was to store the data for printing or downloading. There are plenty that say they do this and don't, so be aware of buying off Amazon or Ebay."

Kath Hope replied to Ruth Furniss's discussion Cold air
"Like you say yourself Ruth, warming up the bedroom will help, but also if you don't have a heated humidifier then that would help - as will covering the tube with a Hose Cover."
