welcome to apnea board
nasal pillows deliver therapy thru your nose. if during the night you open your mouth, the therapy delivered will be lost.
chinstrap helps to minimize mouth breathing by supporting your jaw and keeping mouth closed
full face mask provide therapy whether you breathe thru your nose or mouth
what you,re describing may also indicate mask leak which is separate issue from mouth leak
make sure the cushions are the right size for you and fitted correctly
also use mask fit feature at your set pressure so the mask maintain the seal during the night
wash the cushion to remove any facial oil
replace cushion if worn out
PRS1 unlike S9 don,t provide adequate info on the screen
SleepyHead software support PRS1 50 series but you also need to install the patch if your machine 60 series
take the water tank out first and look at the bottom of the machine
450 indicate ... 50 series machine
460 indicate ... 60 series machine (newer machine with the heated hose option)
