First night with new gear: AirTouch F20 and Ultimate Chinstrap

RE: First night with new gear: AirTouch F20 and Ultimate Chinstrap
+ 1 on not too tight to pull back the jaw. try to loosen the top strap till it leaks bad, they just tighten till it stops. I know it sounds funny but try it to help see if the bottom of the mask seals better and you can loosen that..

For auto-cpap, from machine data or software. You can set the min pressure 1 or 2cm below 95%. Or clinicians commonly use the maximum or 95% pressure for fixed pressure CPAP, this can also be used for min pressure.

So how is the Ultimate chinstrap working out. I'm trying one. First night I had it too tight and ended up with marks on my face. Going to try it again tonight.

I haven't used it enough to really say. I bought some Chin-Up Strips as an alternative and like them a lot, so the UC hasn't been seeing much use.

It looks like we would have to be cleaner shaven, than you or I, in order for them to work.

Not for me but for other that are mouth breathers. I would include it in the Mask Primer.

I find the Chin-Up Straps extremely effective, easy to use, and comfortable. Unless I start getting some kind of skin irritation, I can see myself using them for a long time to come.
