Need tip for tip of Resmed Quattro FF Mask

You misunderstood me Surfie,

I sleep on my back great. And on my left side wonderfully as well. Not so the right side of course --- that would be goofy.

So why would I want to change stuff? Because it's who I am --- it's what I do...........

So far (two nights) I'm liking the P10 a lot. First night not so much, woke up a lot with mouth leaks. Second night I set a new record low AHI of 4. Keeping the chin strap on all night made a big difference. Hoping to grow out of the chin strap eventually.

This self made liner makes for better nose comfort but does another important function, it diffuses any air leaks in the area of the eyes which were previously very bothersome.

Another tip that you may find useful...right after washing the mask cushion, let it dry and then wipe it with a Pampers, the things used for babies butts. They have no perfume and are hypoallergenic. They have a small amount of aloe mixed with the water that moisturizes them and when that dries on the mask cushion, it leaves a coating on there that when you rub your finger across the cushion, you'll feel more drag than usual. Nothing gummy, just less slick than the silicon of the cushion.

Great info! I know there will be times when I can't use the P10, so the ffm will have to be comfortable for those times... Smile
