Mask seal leak. home health care
#1
Hey i'm doing home health care for an older guy.

I notice that during night at times his mask starts to somehow not get a good seal

Is the therapy still effective even though sometimes the seal is not perfect?
He needs to blow off Co2 in his lungs.
I do shut down air, and adjust mask but just wondering the above question.

thanks
