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 !!!!
Thank you. I'll check into that.
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.
Could it be that the mask isn't fitting properly? I have put on a few pounds due to being shut in.
It goes up to 16. Would you recommend it be lower?
Thank you. That's interesting.
Thank you so much for replying. I might try a chin strap.
I use a AirFit F30. It leaks to the point that my husband wakes me because it's so loud. If I loosen the straps, it leaks even more. I'll keep trying to adjust it. Thanks for your reply.
My mask needs to be extremely tight. If I loosen it for comfort, it leaks.
Thank you. After examining the mask a little closer, I see that it is damaged. I got a new one.
