AHi gone up five fold using Resmed F30 full face mask

AHi gone up five fold using Resmed F30 full face mask
Hello,

I am back on CPAP, my machine is a Resmed 10 elite, set to 8cmH2O, face mask Airfit hybrid F30 with a cotton liner.

I feel awful this morning, AH at 34 (16.4 OA, 14.10 CA). The other night it was 7.5 AHi. 

It seems that the nasal part of the mask is blocking my nostrils, too tight or is misaligned and I end up mouth breathing.

Is there any particular technique is getting the nasal part to fit, it be could the holes are not linec up or I have the nasal part squished. Note I have realigned the tube to attach to my head gear.

Thank you !

It could be that or positional apnea or?

You really need to post OSCAR data and from those chats we can tell a lot.

OSCAR is totally free at the top of the site. You also need a SD car in the machine ans a SD reader on your computer.

Im trying to mentally picture how I adjust my F30 when I start a new one.
I think it was like this..

Set on face and adjust for uniform pressure.
Tighten head top strap and loosen middle mask straps to get it pulling up on nasal area a bit.
Tighten lower mask strap if required to get a bit of lower jaw pressure (keeps my mouth closed).
Try laying down on back, on side, relax face totally. Adjust to stop leaks.

Everyone's face is different, but the F30 works very well for me.
Hope you can get yours working
