I am a mouth breather and was told that I need a full face mask. I actually have a bipap machine and have found it very difficult to get use to a mask. I have tried about six different masks. The mask that I am using now cuts into my nose. I was given a piece of gel to put on my nose but it is very difficult to keep this gel on when putting on mask. I dread going to bed at night because I do not want to use this mask. Any advice would be appreciated. Vicki

Have you had a look at an Amara View? It is usually where I'd go for someone who has issues with mask fit over the bridge of the nose. The Simplus is not bad in that area too (although not as good as the Amara View). Also, it is possible to use BiPAP with a nasal mask, even intranasal. Some of my patients do just fine that way. You could give it a try.

Vicki, Which masks and what pressures are your bipap set at? A little more info could mean more meaningful answers.
