Wow - Just Wow
I have been totally frustrated, trying different masks and not feeling like I was getting any rest. Being a mouth breather kept me from getting a nasal mask, thinking I would have major leaks. But being frustrated drove me to try one anyway. So I ordered the SleepWeaver Advance Nasal CPAP Mask with Improved Zzzephyr Seal.

Got it yesterday, tried it last night. Wow.

1 CA event, that is it. 95% leak rate 14.2. AHI below 1.

Super comfortable. Strap marks, yes, but I don't care.

Hope I didn't jinx it by talking about it. SHa_biggrin5

Hi remltr,
Glad the new mask worked last night and here's hoping it keeps on working for you. I know it must be really frustrating trying mask after mask and not getting very good, to terrible results.
Good luck with your new mask and keep us posted on how things go.

Congrats! It can take a while to find the mask for each of us. But when we do, WOW is right!

Hopefully I am on to something here. Although I only got 4 hours of sleep last night I had zero AHi (happy face on Sleepy Head) and a 12 leak rate for 95%.
