It's off to the therapist tomm. to try a nasal mask (fitting), because my nasal pillow just doesn't fit my face anymore. (lost 70 lbs). I had been using a FX, switched to a P-10, sm. med. lge (tried all 3 sizes). I just cant get my numbers down with either.

My leak #'s are thru the roof. Trying my sisters Puriton Bennett breeze tonight. Last attempt at a nasal pillow.Thanks

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Went to the therapist on Tuesday. Well the therapist thinks I'm a mouth breather, so she gave me a Respironics premium chin strap III to try. All my other numbers were/still are very good.

My LL rates since I have used the chinstrap,

Results:
Tuesday-
Time over leak red line 14.672%

Wednesday-
Time over leak red line 8.643%

1st Day 7/17/2015-
Time over leak red line 53.781%

Last day(before chin strap) 8/9/2015-
Time over leak red line 46.716%

Still a little early to tell, but I think my problem is solved. This is with a P-10 headgear/pillow. I had similar horrid #'s with the FX/pillow set up. One more night with the P-10, then the next 3 nights with the FX and I should have a definite solution.
