CPAP Athlete Dreamstation Settings
#21
RE: CPAP Athlete Dreamstation Settings
Keep trying to get your mask to fit consistently. I'm not seeing leaks so much as addressing your comment about the Amara View keeping seal better. I myself endured using that mask for almost 6 months, but could never get consistent fit and sealing.

I've since moved on to first the ResMed F20 mask and now the Fisher & Paykel Simplus and Vitera. These 2 F&P masks are much better for me. I've not used my PAP and mask for many months due to needing a different type of therapy. Even so, I had a titration recently with my Vitera and just like that my leak rates were under 7 the whole night and it was not set uncomfortably tight as I remember my Amara View to have required.

RE: CPAP Athlete Dreamstation Settings
I agree. I could never get Amara View to seal on my face. If I could, it had to be cranked on so tightly that my teeth, jaw, and face bones hurt so badly.

F20 with memory foam seals like a charm for me! I wish every mask had a memory foam option.
