F&P Simplus - First few nights use
#21
Ok...final update.

The Simplus is a very comfortable mask with a deep, soft seal. I can see it being a "go to" mask for a lot of people who don't need supplemental oxygen as part of their therapy.

In my case, the soft seal and the shape of my face generally do quite well...but for at the chin. I noticed in the transition between inhalation and exhalation...that little time when you've stopped breathing in and the machine is still trying to keep up pressure as if you were, you know, that spot where you get that little extra pressure spike...that's where the Simplus' soft seal leaks at the chin for me.

It might not be a concern for others, but in my case, go fort was a toss up between this and another mask. The other had a slightly stiffer seal at the chin and doesn't leak for me...which gave it a slight edge over the Simplus for me.

As in all things, your face and mine are different, so YMMV...the Simplus is a very good mask and if it works well for you, you'll love it.

Hi All,
I have just started my first Apnea therapy with the AirSense 10 and F&P Simplus Small mask and without a doubt my sleep has improved in the last 8 days since starting therapy.

I have accessed the clinician menu to enable the smart start feature as I was waking up after a few hours and found it hard to get back to sleep.

With smartstart on the machine starts when you start breathing into the mask and stops when you take it off.

My problem is I rip the mask of after 2-3 hours and forget to put it back on.

I will keep trying but if i may say thank you to this board and the people on it. Great support group

Try using the S9 mask fit tool:

Put on your mask as normal and turn on your machine while looking at the display. Then, after the machine starts your normal pressure, hold down the large knob to the right of the display until a smiley face pops up that says "mask fit." The machine will then bring your pressure up to max pressure and sense for leaks. If you are leaking too much then a red sad face will appear. If all is good, the green smiley face will remain.

This max pressure will continue until you press the knob again. You can even use this mode while you lay in your sleeping position and have someone else watch the display.

Hang in there, it took me months before it felt right. It also took numerous masks and mild prescribed sleeping medicine! Remembering why you are going through this can help; untreated sleep apnea has nasty consequences :-)

I have replaced my mask. Using Resmed Air Fit F10 full face. The strips were cutting above my ears pretty bad.Had to modify the top adjustment - major mistake of resmed. The mask is much smaller, easy to watch TV, read and so on. I am using it for 2 month, have great fit, and very happy with it.

New question: After first 2 weeks of wonderful sleep. i am rolling back, sleep less and less, have a dry mouth.

Are there any adjustments I can make change pressure up from 4 , humidity up or down from 74? Thank you.

If your question is about the F10, it is better to ask that in the main forum vs in the review forum.

There is a thread for that mask found here:
