Needing advice. I have the dreamstation autopap and lately my humidifier has been empty in the morning, I also have oxygen connected to it. I'm also waking up with everything being dry or in the middle of the night. I have always had dry mouth etc. But needing some ideas on what to do.

I don't notice any large mask leaks. It is dry due to winter time. I go to bed with a stuffy runny nose in which I have had for weeks. And used to have to wake up and blow my nose. Do I increase the humidity on my cpap or decrease it? It's set to fixed, what is adaptive setting?

Maybe use a humidifier to make it more moist then the CPAP water won't empty so fast.

I'm curious. How does the oxygen get connected to it ?

I drink a full glass of water before laying down. I turned my humidifier up to a 4. Left my hose on a 3. Almost dry when I get up. Used to be empty. Thankfully no more velcro tongue.
