Those discs….Going to give you minimal added moisture and must be placed very close to your nose/mouth to have any chance at all of success. They won’t work well with some masks.

Google “cpap rhinitis” ….you may or may not need more moisture but the symptoms are ugly when the nasal mucosa get dried out and are unhappy. Bad, bad allergy like symptoms can happen.

I may have to RISE but I refuse to SHINE.
