Lip gets stuck- full face mask (F10/F20)
#11
Walla Walla,
At first, when we had a couple good nights with the F20 Large, she would choose that one when I showed it to her along with the F10 Med. I am sure because her lip didn't get stuck. We both thought it was the answer.

But, then we started with inconsistency- large leaks that made her tired the next day. Once we had the 9 good days at my house with the F10 Med, that became her choice. Next was the bed change back to her house and haircut or the planets shifting (LOL), and the F10 Med seemed to become just as "leaky" some nights.
I wash mask each night and use Remzzz liner.

Good thought though to bring back to the front of my mind.
Thanks.

I will show her the Fit Life face mask.  I'm guessing she won't like it but will put a positive spin on it.

I understand.  I check the large leak rate during the night so that if its crazy- like, 30%, I can switch mask or completely reposition.
Some of the final large leaks in the teens may have started as much higher, then with adjustment and the rest of the night's data settled in the teens. 
I will start tracking though if I have a very high leak during the night before an adjustment because, to your point, the final number could be misleading.  I don't always right it down when I look.

Not on the graphs I posted though.  I recall the adjustments were in the AM and were not on the nights when I switched mask to mask.
Thanks.

What about the Innomed Aspen? It rests under the chin, so her lip would not be a problem. (but I'm only a week into cpap and only mention this after seeing my daughter's Innomed Hybrid. I'm considering the Aspen for myself, but have not seen one in person)
