There was a learning curve to the Amara View. Leaks were quite a problem when I first tried it. But I liked the small size, it didn't go up my face so far. It felt less encumbering.
I found through experimentation the right amount of strap pressure. The top "over the head" strap needs to be tight enough that it holds it up against the bottom of the nose but not too tight. The upper and lower "behind the head" straps need to have just enough tension to hold the mask in place and balanced, but not too tight. If the straps are too tight, it flattens the seals causing them to leak. I found that the mask seals best when it is at working pressure. The seals inflate making a good seal.
Also, I am a pretty big guy, but the small mask fits best. When I tried the medium mask, it would never seal.
The Amara View is now my goto mask.
Sleep is worth the effort.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Much success to you with your CPAP therapy and finding a mask that works well.
I am currently using a Philips Wisp mask and sometimes I have very low leaks and sometimes I have a higher rate of leaks. But usually not over the acceptable level for Resmed or Sleepyhead. My AHI is averaging .5 to .7 with this mask and it is really comfy for me with the hose over the top of my head. I have been getting a good nights sleep and with the low AHI figure I am happy, despite the leaks. Chasing no leaks seems to be like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Does it really exist?
Look at your data with Sleepyhead. Your pressures are wide open. You may do better restricting it closer to your 95% level. My pressure was originally set at 8-12.5. I raised the bottom pressure. That was ok, but didn't improve my sleep. I recently lowered my top pressure to 11 and I'm sleeping for 3-5 hours now. It could be the higher pressure is getting to you. Surprisingly, my AHI is STILL under .5 most of the time despite the fact that I was previously topping out at 12.5.
