Quartro fx slipping
#1
I have Been using Quartro fx medium and when the pressure is up the mask rides higher on my nose. I have to get up every two hours in the night to reposition it because of leakage around my nose. I have a norrow bridge. Is the mask too large or should I try another mask?

Hi Deweym,

I think many find they need to wash the mask cushion every morning (using unscented soap) and wash and dry their face right before sleep time, in order for their mask to stay put and seal well.

I use a cloth mask liner (RemZzzs brand) between my face and the mask, which stops leaks and allows me to wear the mask slightly less tightly.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

When I use that mask I have an under chin strap that connects to the two lower straps on the mask.
Stops it from riding up. Smile

I made it from velcro.
Some folks call it a "Woozle" I think.
