I use the Resmed Air Sense 10 and seem to be getting a red unhappy face no matter what I do. It is very frustrating and makes me not want to continue with the therapy even though I need it

Have you been tracking your leaks, if you use a program that does this, this may help with the fit. masks straps generally should not be pulled too tight but also not too loose, to get the best fit. maybe you need to adjust your straps? Also mask liners can help, they are cloth liners that fit under the mask to help with skin irritation.

You can monitor leak rate and AHI via the Resmed tool at the myair page linked off the website. It would be helpful to get the leaking under control. Since you didn't mention where you got your mask, machine pressure and what type mask, not really useful to try to go through all mask basics as many will not apply. If you have taken the opportunity to read a bit through this forum, mask leaks are a major topic. Why not give some info so perhaps we could give y ou some tips.
