I started on cpap about 4 weeks ago. I've been using an amara view mask and a dreamwear full face. I seem to be somewhere in the middle of small & medium sizes. Is it better to use one that's a bit too small or one that's a bit too large? Thanks

I suggest that if your current mask cushion isn't quite right to first try one in either one size up or one size down. In your case, down (small) would seem a good choice to try. Cushions are not that expensive and once you have found the right size, you will be glad you did the experiment.

Thanks for your quick response. Is there or could there be a list of recommended durable medical equipment techs?
