I am new to CPAP usage. (So far it has been torture using a ResMed Airfit P10. I hate the nose pillows. Apparently I sleep with my mouth open sometimes, as I wake up with a dry mouth and throat. My provider is sending a chin strap, however, I will buy a "boil and bite mouth guard" today. Also, I will switch to either a Phillips Dreamware or a Swift FX Nano as soon as possible. I sleep in a recliner so I'm concerned about the hose being over my head). Thinking that washing the hose, etc. would be a pain, I purchased a Rescare CPAP Cleaner from Amazon. It seems to be working out okay even though there is some residual ozone odor in the hose. If this is a sign that the cleaner has worked properly, I guess that is good, however, I wonder if the odor is harmful in any way.

ResMed recommends AGAINST using Ozone.

Ozone is a harmful gas...it can damage the lungs. I would be really afraid that if I could smell it then it's still hanging around and I am breathing it.
