However, there is NO GOOD REASON for those leaks to be that high with a P10.

There are only two places for leaks with a P10 or other nasal pillow mask.

It is either leaking around the pillows in which case you will hear and/or feel the leaks. Fix that.

Or it is through your mouth - probably after you fall asleep.

That is no big deal IF it doesn't bother you.

Still struggling with the P10, I sewed the straps tighter and I still think it's not tight enough, there is so much play.
The leak rate is still ok, my CA is up a bit, so I don't know what that is about??????? The AHI is fine, 0.66 last night. I think I need a new set of pillows, they are a month old, so hopefully the DME will deliver the new ones soon.

I check that mask and I cannot for the life of me feel any leaks anywhere around the pillows so I don't know where it's coming from. Even when I get up to bio break, I feel before I get up and there is nothing coming from the nose. I tape my mouth shut so it's not from there as well. ugggg

AHI excellent! What were your leaks?
