Anyone else has this problem?

Thanks diamaunt, I had browsed a little of this thread, but not the last part which discusses the solution to that problem clearly. I'll soak the mask today. I already brushed it, but it seems more may be needed. This is quite a problem.

Paula, indeed, I tried to switch to a nasal mask before. It was better for a while, but then I had the same problem.

I may have a combination of the P10 blocking and rain out. Will keep experimenting.

Yes, retired_guy, I spend more time on my back. I used to have a back-pillow to prevent it, but stopped using that with the APAP as I was told I would no longer need it. I don't know if the machine acts differently when I'm on my back.

Also, Paula, I did wonder about the pressure output. If I can't get it right, I'll ask to get it checked.

I wonder if I just need more min pressure still.

Hi Visitor,

You misread me a bit.

What I said was: " Back sleeping is great, but it can need higher pressures or be unable to do at all."

Unless you do establish higher pressures, I'm thinking your problem could be due to back sleeping. So the options are to avoid it for awhile, or raise the pressure a little. Right now, until you get everything stabilized, I would avoid it for awhile.

I can't sleep on my back... I suspect too many years of conditioning before starting cpap that I had to be on my side or stomach to be able to breath. Dont-know

Ok retired_guy, so I avoid back sleeping until matters settle and my pressure can be slowly raised high enough to deal with it. Worth a try. Thanks!
