RE: Could Sleeping Pill During Test Cause False Apnea Diagnosis
I'm really glad to hear that suggestion worked out for you. I don't see any harm at this point in limiting maximum pressure as I said above to 9.0 and observing what happens. Mask liners are a valuable tool to minimize leaks and increase comfort. They come pre-cut for you specific mask, so you just slip it into the mask cushion and it should help absorb extra oils and moisture, cushion the mask to reduce irritation, and fill voids to prevent leaks. Your DME may provide them, or you can order mask liners for the Airfit F10 online.
