Issues
I have used a REMStar Cflex CPAP since 2008. I used to get great sleep. A year ago I had gastric by-pass ans my mask didn't fit anymore, so I got a new one that left horrible blisters on the bridge of my nose. I recently got a hybrid (which I really like) but for some reason the nose pillows shift out while I'm sleeping and the seal around the mouth piece seems to irritate the skin on my upper lip. Any suggestions to alleviate these two small issues?

Does your mask come in sizes? Have you tried one size larger or smaller?

I have a small mask and it seems too large for my face.

RE: Issues
Is this the only hybrid mask you have tried?

Do you use a full face mask because you mouth breathe in your sleep? Have you tried a chin strap?

You could also talk to the supplier to ensure you are putting it on right and you have the straps right. I've had some masks where the hardest part was figuring out each night if I had it right side up!

The mask is the most important part and yet the most difficult part.

Hi kelly61,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Have you changed your cushions and pillows regularly? Sometimes they get worn and need to be changed, just a thought.
Best of luck to you.
