Pad-a-cheek on Airfit F10?
Not sure where to put this -- but is anyone else using the padacheek liner for this mask? Seems to cause quite a few leaks for me, despite tightening it up. The only other ffm liner I've tried was for the quattro air and I didn't have the same problems with it as I recall.

I use homemade liner cut from a old cotton tshirt. Works great. I was having leaks and noise before that. The liners have taken care of the problem. I wear it quite loose and I don't get any tell tale marks in the morning either.

If Quattro air worked for you, then F10 should with adjustments.

Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.

I mean the Quattro Air padacheek liner didn't cause excessive leaks for me. This one does. I'm thinking about cutting off the nose padding triangle thing. On the order page it says the liner "can be altered to meet your needs" so I'm going to email them and ask about that.

I emailed Karen at Pad-a-Cheek and she told me to go for it. It's just one night, but it seemed to reduce the median leaks quite a bit.
