Full Face Mask & Cervical Collar?

The CC was the only variable to change in the equation. I also have not sustained any new facial damage and the general soreness is diminishing. I'm very pleased with the results of the combination of FF and CC. Have not received the Dreamwear yet but i'm hoping that i can solve the mouth breathing issue when it's used?

I would personally suggest trying a CC with a full face mask if mask seal or injuries are an issue. It's a cheap solution and yes, you can reduce strap tension and get a better seal results with the use of a CC.  Best of luck to all.....stick with the process!

Successful stories often get lost in the forum clutter.  That's a great result, and a good story when the first post is read as a starting point.  Well done!

My Dreamwear Cushion is the most comfortable mask with least leaks I’ve tried.  My results are minimal leaks (not talking about mouth leaks) for me compared to N20, F20 and Amara View.

Your mileage may vary.

Encouraging...Thanks!
