RE: What have you done to deal with mouth leak?
Started with Swift FX nasal pillows but was getting excessive leaks out of my mouth. Tried a chin strap but my lips would still open and result in leaks. Switched to full face mask and that has done the trick for me.

RE: What have you done to deal with mouth leak?
I use the velcro chin strap lincare sent home with me, but honestly, I still have to mentally keep my mouth close or air can still get thru. I am not sure what the solution is. I really dont want to go to a full mask.
