Hi...new to this forum but not new to PAP therapy...about the head cold stuff...I'm no physician, but, since I have been on PAP therapy, I have had no more sinus infections or colds...maybe it is because I've keep the equipment clean, maybe just luck, but my family physician told me that since I'm using heated humidification, it tends to keep the nose and throat membranes moist and lubricated thus helping to move all the contaminates through the system...WHATEVER!...all I know is that in the past 17 months (knock on wood) I haven't had this problem...best of luck to all you new PAP users...
