Continous air out of vent nasal mask

RE: Continous air out of vent nasal mask
Without looking at OSCAR there is no way to know but from my experience I will offer this. My events were excellent but I could not stop leaks (pillows mask) so I lowered my low number. It was 9.4 and I reduced it to 7. My leaks went down to acceptable levels and no more events than before. It has only been 2 nights so we will have to see if it continues to “work”.

There are other ways and better ways. Read my link at the bottom about collar. There are examples showing the difference between with and without.

Knightsbridge DUAL BAND Anti Snoring Chin Strap From Supplier #37 in the suppliers list at the top of the site.

Either or both together will work.

We could see problems IF you would post OSCAR CHARTS.
