I just checked my leak data from last night, and even though I had a rather steady leak the last hour, it only registered as 15L/M--well below the 24L line Resmed considers major. My 95% figure was very low.
I called my DME folks this morning and told them the sleep tech thought the medium Airfit mask was too small. They told me a large cushion would be in the mail today. Service has been great so far.

Most insurance companies allow one new cushion per month. It might be wise to have one or two extras. I also hang onto an old mask that's been replaced for parts. A couple of times something broke on a mask I was using and fortunately I was able to use parts from an old mask to fix it. Broken parts seem to happen at times when I didn't have a new mask in reserve. Our dog has also helped out by chewing up a couple of masks.
