Angry VPAP pressure 20 - best mask?
I have tried the FX, Amara and Mirage Quattro masks - currently using the M. Quattro Medium. I have very high leak - more than 24 liters - up to 100 and more. RT at doctor's office recommended the Mojo mask. Has someone tried this mask? The nasal mask doesn't work - blows the air through my lips - even with chinstrap.

Check Supplier #1 for customer reviews
Another mask might be of interest is F&P 431, got a piece goes under the chin for support
Its difficult to tell whether any mask going to work for you without first trying

Thank you Zonk. Tried the Fp masks -they leaked at pressure of 12. The Hans Rudolph was good at 16 but no more. I read the customer reviews but after ordering some supplies that were highly recommended on certain sites and not finding the same results I am a little hesitant to just rely on commercial site reviews. You are right though - what works for one might not wotk for another.

RespIronics Fit Life mask is wonderful. No lines or mask farts, here. The total face mask makes me feel less clostrophobic than any other mask beacause I have a clear field of vision. It also makes me feel like an astronaut!

I know my pressure only shows as high as 8 in my profile but it goes up to 17 in the night and my machine doesn't register leaks.

Good luck,
Kate

My pressure is 20 also and I have good results with the Mirage Quattro. Have you read the section on Mask Arrayed blog called Taming the Mirage Quattro. Very good information. Just Google Mask Arrayed.

I can concur...I don't run pressures that high, but I've found that fit testing at 20 cm H20 (what my S9 uses for fitting) has given me no issues. I will say, that the FitLife is an adjustment because it is a total face mask...not for everyone, but if it works for you, it's a gooder Smile
