My FFM has been denting my face, from my having to tighten it to prevent leaks. I have tried several different mask liners; the homemade fleece or velour leaks a lot, cotton t-shirt material not so much.
The leaks cause the pressure to go way up, and then I get bad aerophagia, and leak reports in sleepyhead. I have asked DME for help, they ignore me, and I have to call them to remind them to send me a replacement cushion for my Simplus.
I've tried many masks, only to have this same problem, and the F10 hurt my nose.
How do you deal with this problem, ASV folks? Please help. Thank you. xo
I also had problems with leaks with numerous masks. My sleep doc suggested I increase the pressure even higher. That lasted half a night.
I lowered my pressure (but not as low as you) and solved my leak problem.
Making the straps too tight is a classic cause of leaks.
If you must wear a full face mask, I would try the Amara View. I will be picking one up this week for my brother in law. That will also allow me to check it out thoroughly. If it works for him I will probably order one for me.
