Don't worry. He can only go so far before the CPAP unplugs from the wall and he falls over.

Not really. In my case the leak rate is 1 or 2 which I'm told is quite acceptable. This seems to be a standard for me since I acquired my AutoSet on Wednesday so I can't really proclaim any trends to be established yet. The feel is comfortable and the mask fit icon is always smiling at me.

I had no issues with my mustache and beard with my nasal mask.
