Cool

If the pressure comes through tear ducts, a FFM will not fix it, as it does not pressurize the area around the eyes. There is a mask that indeed covers the full face...hope that is not where you need to go.

Don't despair. You can buy the clips separately if you need them. PM me if you want the link.

Search for "FitLife CPAP Mask". That is one of the few styles that wold place the entire face, including eyes in the same pressure environment. I hope you can find another solution.

I'd bet good money this is an auto-correct artifact of an attempt to say tongue-suck".

That should be "tounge". Spell checker got me.
CPAP is a journey like “The Wizard of Oz”. It’s a long slow journey. You will face many problems and pick up many friends along the way. Just because you reach the poppies, it doesn’t mean you are in Kansas.

Haven't had any problems with the P10 straps and have been using the model since it came out. I wash the straps in warm soapy water periodically and that seems to keep them tight enough. Been using the P10 for over two years. I do replace the entire mask about every six months but they could go longer, and seldom get an AHI reading above 1.0

Thank you for the offer, I really don't need them, I just wanted to see them, and I feel unloved that I didn't get any Big Grin
