My therapy was going great but for the last week my AHI has steadily gone up. I was consistently under 2. I even had a few sub 1 nights. Now I am at 4.9 and only slept about 3.5 hours.
Does the Amara View mask lose its seal ability quickly? I have used the same cusion since mid November?
Now it also has a little crack in the part that goes under my nose but that doesn't prevent it from sealing and the machine reports no leaks.
Now I also have a slight head cold.
I'm feeling really disappointed.
First look is: "Now I also have a slight head cold." Likely factors in.
Remember, every night is different.
One would need to look at event breakdown and flow, pressure, event graphs to tell more.

--> it also has a little crack in the part that goes under my nose <--
If it has a crack anywhere, it is losing flexibility everywhere. So it is probably leaking more. I think it's time for a new cushion.
