Sores on the nasal bridge from Resmed Mirage Quattro full face mask
#21
Exact same head gear. Techs usually put masks on wrong.

The cushion has a roll fit on the top that adjusts itself as you sleep to avoid the sore nose your having.
It cant with the stabilizer pinned to your forehead.
If its working for you now good deal.
But its adjusted wrong.

Tension with bottom straps. Top side straps running straight back just above ears, and not that tight.
Top strap set so top side straps run straight back just above ears.

Ok, I will have a play around with it all this afternoon, if I can get it to sit in place without feeling like it wall fall off my face I will try sleeping with it that way tonight.

Maybe I will try setting it up with a spacer between my forehead and the stabiliser, then remove the spacer and see how it all sits.

Or I might strap it on via the bottom straps only, and then hook up and adjust the top straps to suit the position the stabiliser is sitting in.

Trial and error I guess, and worst case scenario I can go back to the way I have it strapped now seeing as it seals and the mark/painful spot has been relieved.

What works for you.
One of the things I had to get used too with it was the feeling it was too loose.
Once you get it set right, that too loose feeling is a blessing quickly adapted too lol.
