mask pressure
I have changed from a nasal to a full face mask. The mask has no leaks but it seems to take more pressure to achieve results; is this normal?

John, most CPAP machines have a setting for nasal mask, nasal pillows or full face mask. Make sure your machine is set to full face mask if that's what you're using. It does make a slight difference in your therapy and having that setting correct is helpful.

Your S9 has the option to change mask types.

Yes I did change to face mask setting and have improved the mask performance by securely checking the fit. The leak is very low.

I had to change from a nasal to full face due to sinus problems.
The new mask is very comfortable.

Thanks for your reply,

John

There is no S9 auto ... which S9 Auto are you using?
Next to stop/start button should say either .. AutoSet or Escape Auto

Whats the leak?
Your profile shows ... CPAP Pressure: 8-10
