I'm new to both the apneaboard forum and CPAP therapy.
Background: My GF works for a sleep doc and she complained of my snoring for quite a while. I went to my dentist and he fitted me with an oral appliance. It worked well for a while, but ultimately, my snoring continued. GF did a sleep study and found that I was having over 20 events per hour, with each event lasting up to, or longer than, 1 minute.
Fast forward to January of this year. Having already done the sleep study, I purchased a new ResMed 9 Autoset with humidifier, along with a ResMed Quattro Air full face mask, size small. My total AHI numbers went from 8-9 the first week, down to 3.3 or so after that.
I recently went to Vegas for a few days with my buddies and shared a room with another CPAP user. He uses the same mask but medium size. I tried his on and found that it fit better than my small mask. (a bit more comfortable) I decided to purchase a medium mask and give it a shot. My AHI numbers have not been as low as with the other mask, and on occasion, quite a bit higher.
I realize the standard answer will be, "hey, just go with the old mask," but the other has a better fit. Question: Should I give it more time, or go back to the other mask. (It's only been a couple of weeks)
Thank you in advance for your responses.
