Thanks OpalRose. Nice, indeed I see some great tips on the Mask Primer. 

Geez! the "Run Mask Fit" setting puts out some serious pressure. Feels like every bit of air went down into my belly! Like I really need any more reasons for gas!  Smile

RE: Introduction, Leaks, Mask Differences and The Results
Thank you Captain, I do appreciate the compliment.

I do understand Aerophagia but I would like you to understand how much pressure you are actually dealing with.

Get a tall glass of water and a straw.
Immerse the straw at least 8 inches deep
Now blow bubbles. Any difficulty? Didn't think so.

That is the maximum pressure that a CPAP is capable of. A bi-level, that's 10 inches
