Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The same thing happens to my husband. Nose bleeds in this case are generally from the nose drying out during sleep and the cpap can certainly cause this due to the continuous flow of air.
Talk to your doctor to see if this can be prevented but it's a fairly common side effect.
