That is why P10 is an amazing mask. I don't even need to adjust it too much. And I am an active side sleeper.
With a FFM, I saw some leaks. And about once a month, a large leak flag for 10% of the night.
In my case, I somehow keep my mouth shut while sleeping. I never knew I had this ability till I tried the P10.
If your leak rate is due to mouth leak (you can see it in your SH leak graphs), then I suggest you try a chinstrap initially; and longer term, train yourself to do the airlock with your tongue resting at back of front teeth.
If it isn't the mouth leak, then you need to anchor the P10 a little better. Make sure that the 2 arms (extending from the pillows to the head) are resting in the place where the top of the ears meet the head. Then split the top part of the headgear. Make the lower part go below the bump in the back of the head (also called external occipital protuberance). Make the upper part go a bit towards the forehead (the more forward it goes, the less tight the mask feels at the nose). Try this and see if your leak rates change.
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.
