Which masks to try???
#1
After 2 weeks of fighting I finally have my DME coming out to supposedly help me find a full face mask to try. Any suggestions one how to find the right size? Or which are the best masks? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

If you sleep on your stomach, the full face mask will not work.

However, I think most people here like the Mirage Quattro or one of the hybrids. (part over the mouth, part nasal pillows)

I recommend the ResMed Quattro, as I have found after extensive testing that it is best for me. It is the one with the forehead support. If you can try both for a while, also try the Quattro FX. It does not have the support, seems far less intrusive, but does not work for my face. You will ultimately find what you need, and with a full mask, can sleep on your side or back very easily. I tried the Resperonics ComfortGel blue, but it did not work for me. I still have it, but don't use it.

I've tried the Swift FX, Mirage Liberty, Quattro FX, Mirage Quattro and Innomed Hybrid...in that order in my 8 months of therapy now...and the winner for me is the Quattro FX. Needed the ffm because of mouth leaks and the Quattro FX provides me the best combination of fit, comfort and excellent low AHI and leak scores out of all of the ffm's I've tried. As always, your results may differ.
