Most here use nasal or pillows and like them better. Or want too and cant.

I can use nasal or pillows and do use an Eson with no chinstrap,,no problems. AHI runs under 1 most nights.

But I like a Simpus better. Or total face.

I seldom use the Simplus or the Fitlife though.
Reason? Simply cannot get nearly the results with ffm at any pressure.
AHI is gonna run 2 or 3 all the time with FFM.

I guess im just an oddball in wishing I could get the same treatment quality from ffm . But it dont happen for me.

Well, AHI of 2 is OK. Do you feel worse or better after using the FFM? I think that's what's important.

I dont feel as good on ffm. Likely because OA.evrnts with ffm usually last better than a min and a half per event. So ahi of 2 with events all lasting a min or better is pretty bad for me. I desat very fast into the 60s.

Oddly mt tidal volume is better with ffm. But the higher ahi I cant tolerate for long.
