Hi: I'm new to this board but not new to using a CPAP machine. I've been using one on and off since 2004 with a variety of different masks, none are totally successful for me.

I had to go for another sleep test recently as I needed a new machine so got the ResMed Air Sense ten and a new Resmed mask (pillows).

I have never been totally successful in using a mask and never had 8 hours sleep with one. I average about 4 - 5 hours as I throw it off during the night 'cos it bothers me.

Will do some more reading before going any further.

RE: New to Apnea Board
Teagranny, I see you use a fixed pressure of 7. Were you provided a Resmed Airsense 10 CPAP, or did you get the Autoset or Elite? It helps if your profile is specific, and it affects what we can suggest. Also, is your mask the Airfit P10 or another model?

Welcome, and best of luck with the new gear.

Hi teagranny,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I know CPAP therapy can take some getting used to. Hopefully, you can make it work for you this time around.
Much success to you and hang in there for more responses to your post.
