[CPAP] Mask type setting for mask fit
#1
Mask type setting for mask fit
I have a Dreamstation cpap machine. What is the correct mask setting in the setup menu to measure for mask leaks. It gives me a choice of x1 to x5. I am using either a TAP Pap nasal pillow or a ResMed AirFit P10 nasal pillow. Right now the setting is at off. Thanks for your help.

RE: Mask type setting for mask fit
To the best of my knowledge, Philips recommends that any mask, other than a Philips brand, be set to off or 0 (zero).

Since you're using a mask other than Respironics, leave the Resistance setting to Off.
