Chin strap: not working. Alternatives?
01-16-2015, 06:11 PM
As an update; I have now tried the P-R chinstrap and prefer it to the "Ruby". It is, at least for me, very comfortable, easily adjusted and is applied after donning the nasal pillows. After trying 3 different chinstraps I think I've found one that works for me. Oddly my AHI's have decreased too. Now if it will make the house payment and take out the trash. . .

I would try a nasal mask like FX. I've tried all the masks and the pillow just didn't work. With nasal mask I don't have the mouth breathing issue.
Sometimes a lower pressure might be recommended...
