[Equipment] new mask, leaks
#1
new mask, leaks
I have been a CPAP users since 2006.  My equipment is RESMED 10 Airsense with a Phillips Dreamweaver Nasal Pillow headgear.

This weekend replaced the headgear/pillows and get mask seal errors.  The new pillow material is so thin, the pillows do not maintain shape, collapse, and hence leak.  The fit does not feel uncomfortable.  Attempts to correct the leaks by tightening the headgear straps does not help get a seal. Frankly, I do not sense much leakage, but the Airsense does.

Any suggestions.

RE: new mask, leaks
Hi genekornegay,
Please download the free OSCAR software.  

We would be able to see the leak rate on your graph.  It may be nothing at all, but let us take a look.

Be sure there is a SD card in your Cpap.  When you have a night or two, post a Screenshot of the Daily Page here.

Follow the link below in my Signature Line.  The will show you how to take a Screenshot, and Organize your chart. Then use the Attachment Feature to post here.
