Cpap Seal
I have to switch from a nasal mask to full face. I am having trouble with leaking. My DME has been very patient with me. I have tried many different type of masks. Recently I found a product called cpap seal at cpapseal.com. It is a gel liner that goes between the mask and face. I searched this site for it and could not find any info. I also searched another cpap site and some folks had mostly negative reports on it about two years ago.
Has anyone had recent experience with this product? I'm wondering if the company perhaps has made a product improvement.

My big leak problem comes from my mouth dropping. After searching for remedies all I have seen look uncomfortable. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Cpap Seal
Gulf jack, welcome, you may need to try a chin strap even if your using a FFM to keep your chin and mouth up. Two things that help me with a FFM are mask liners which you can buy on line or make yourself and having the hose coming from above your head either over a bed head or you can buy a hose lift or make one yourself. Having it come from above your head pulls the ask up instead of down and saves you getting tangled. I have heard of a couple of people using the gel liner but its not very common.

RE: Cpap Seal
You may want to try a hybrid mask. One part is nasal pillows and the other part is an oral mask.
