Need a new mask...
I use the Amara View mask and cannot keep the nasal seal while sleeping as I'm a belly sleeper. All of my numbers are great but I wake up several times a night. Any suggestions as to what type of mask I should change to? CThx

A friend is also a belly sleeper,
He did well with an Eson and a Nuance.
Im not a belly sleeper per se but i can do so in a Eason or a Simplus

Hi SSLLEEEEPP,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Masks are such an individual thing, what might work for me might not work for you.
There are so many of them to choose from. You could try a nasal pillows mask, I have used the P10 mask and could sleep on my stomach with that one. Unfortunately, it’s a trial and error thing.
Hang in there for other suggestions and much success to you with your CPAP therapy and with finding a mask that will work for you.
