Still Getting Benefit?
#1
So last night, from the get-go, my mask was leaking very slightly at the bottom, under the lower lip. No matter what I did adjustment-wise the slight leak continued. Got frustrated and took it off and slept all night sans mask. My question: If you have a slight leak and keep the mask on, are you still getting the benefit of cpap? Thanks.
Recently put a new cushion and clean mask daily

As long as the leak is registering less than 24 l/min and your pressure has not dropped you are definitely still getting getting good therapy as long as the leak is not waking you up. The same could probably be said for 30 l/min although that is a little more questionable.

Best Regards,
