Try a different size of pillow, that can help.  Make sure you have it on right side up.  Try tilting the nose piece a bit up and down.  I had trouble breathing out when it was not exactly perfect.  When it lines up, it should be easy.  Also, check that nothing is blocking the screens.  I have heard of people poking holes in them or cutting small slits to improve the ventilation.  I don't think that was on a new mask.

i had one P10 that when it was brand new had that issue. I blew out hard against it a bunch of times and the issue resolved, now I can't tell which of my old P10's that was. None of the others have done it, though.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Chill is right about the pillow size. It seems that most people do best with the large pillow.

Is it hard to breath with it as soon as you put it on or after you have been wearing it a while? The first time I tried the P10 I had a problem breathing with it a few minutes after I went to sleep. It turned out to be condensation  on the screens. I had to increase my room temperature from 65 to 69 degrees F to resolve the problem. I was able to lower my room temperature back to 65 degrees after I started using a heated hose. A hose cozy may help as well.

Another thing to try is to pinch and roll the cones slightly between your thumb and finger to make sure the inner cones are not inverted. If an inner cone becomes inverted it can restrict the air flow and/or cause a leak.

I always pull the mask away from my nose and resettle it to make sure the cones inflate well and they are in the right position after I turn the machine on.

If this is a new mask for you Make sure your putting it on correctly.
The recessed label with the Size letter needs to be on the bottom of the nose pillow when on your face.
If you put it on the wrong way you will have problems. I have done this several times.
Make sure your using the correct pillow size for your nose. if it's too small the air flow will be restricted.
After several months of use the Micro screen diffuser may become clogged.  
You need to use hot water,soap and a soft bristle brush to clean it.

Gog, the machine is designed to maintain a set therapy pressure. If you drill holes you will certainly ruin the mask, and the pressure will not drop until you have so many holes that the leaks exceed the ability of the CPAP to maintain pressure. Maybe you need to use a lower pressure, or exhale pressure relief. What pressure is the machine reaching when you have trouble exhaling?

Your machine has pressure relief settings off, 1, 2 and 3. Please get the manual and try that before wrecking your mask. http://www.apneaboard.com/adjust-cpap-pr...tup-manual
