106. IdeaSpark*: Humidifier Breathing Attachment December 27, 2006Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in IdeaSpark*, Product.
With this cold I have, my sleep is hindered by burning nostrils and a dry throat. I have two humidifiers going, but I still experience dryness, so I also use a personal steam inhaler. I am still not able to sleep through the night.
My entire bedroom feels like a steamy, dank cave, when all that really needs to be humidified is my nose and throat. I wonder it is possible to make a humidifier attachment, like one shown in this picture (of a sleep apnea CPAP machine), so the steam only goes where it is needed, and so I can finally get a good night’s sleep.
Meanwhile, I am too lazy to clean my humidifiers, so I hope I am not constantly inhaling mold spores.
