I use Oxygen at 3lpm with my VPAP machine for my Complex Sleep Apnea! I set my humidifier on my VPAP on high so I get maximum humidification. It helps allot, but my nose and mouth are still very dry! I was using the liberty mask, I just recently changed to the new Respironics FitLife full face mask, and it had made a huge difference in my dry nose and mouth! I don't have near the problems with it now! So do you have your problem with dry nasal passages when you sleep or is it all the time? So maybe trying to increase your humidification might help, or change the mask you use for your sleep apnea. By the way I see you have central apneas, do you mind me asking what type to XPAP machine you use? I use the ResMed VPAP Adapt SV enhanced, I think it is a fantastic machine!
