That is exactly what I experienced with the P10, and why I had to give up on it. And for me the problem was that the only way to stop it from happening was to literally pull it with my hand. But the moment I'd let go and make the slightest movement, it was right back to being situations wrong again and making it difficult to breathe.

As always peoples mileage may vary, I know it's the favorite mask of a lot of people.

I grab mine where the strap split apart and push it away from my nose until it starts to leak evenly all around. Then let it settle back. Sometimes I have to give it the "Bewitched" nose wiggle to align it too.

HuhDont-knowI am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay
