Poor mask fit

I switched from a airfit full mask to a Phillips full mask because the airfit wasn't fitting properly and I was having an average of 10 events per hour. Now I never go over 5, sometimes it's 1 or 2. However, the report says that the mask has poor fit. Out of a possible 20, it is usuall around a 14 or 15. I wake up a few times during the night, and have to remove the mask. I'm also tired during the day. When I forgo using the CPAP at night, I feel much better in the morning. Should I just quit? I've been using CPAP for 5 years and have never been satisfied. Thank you.

Have you tried a nasal pillow type mask? There is the ResMed P10 or the F&P Brevida. They can be more comfortable and easier to get to seal.

Sierra, thank you so much for your suggestion. I got a nasal pillow mask and it is amazing! Fits perfectly and my AHI's per hour are usually less than 1. One night it was 0 !!!!
