I would like to, very politely and with all due respect (for your hammer ) take exception to the high pressure part of that statement. I am at 20 cm/H2O all of the time and I have found 2 full face masks so far that do not leak at that pressure, the Mirage Quattro and the Simplus. 2 successes out of the 3 full face masks that I have tried is not too bad a success rate. All that I am trying to say is that it does not appear to me to be all because of the full face masks although they do present a little more of a challenge.
The Quattro Mirage leaked and farted all over the place. OMG it was so bad, it scared one of the dogs. I could not get it to stop. I even tried Mack's ear plugs as a sealant. After using the Simplus for a while now, I think I have a size too small. For me, the air pushes my face and stretches my mouth into a frown until my lips are wider than the mask. This causes a leak. If I fill my cheeks with air or purse them like I am kissing, I can get the leaks to stop. I just ordered the medium pillow in hopes it works. The good thing about the Simplus is you can use the same frame, just get a new pillow for about $30.
But this just shows that everyone's face is different. What works for you won't work for me. It don't make this any easier, do it?
