RE: Complete newbie, about to buy my first machine.
Oh, okay, so you've tried them. I think they showed me the type called nasal "prongs" during my sleep study. I never got further than holding them up to my nose before I said "NO!"

Now I'm thinking bout getting the full mask just in case. I think I mean leaks from the mask, not sure. XD I know that I didn't need the strap when I did the nasal mask in the sleep studies.

Hi NukaColaCaps,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You have a good attitude and that will go along way, as you start your CPAP journey.
Much luck to you with your CPAP therapy, and your new machine.
I look forward to hearing of your progress.
