can't exhale

your profile says "nasal mask" but not which one. Is it truly a nasal mask (covers the entire nose) or nasal pillows (goes up the nostril) If nasal mask is correct, I have 0 xp and not much advice to offer. If however you are using nasal pillows, they get squishy after 2 weeks to 1 month use and don't allow air through properly - especially in smaller sizes. some tips:
  • replace pillows when squishy
  • wash after every use
  • use the largest size that is comfortable
  • try "positioning" them in the nostril to maximize airflow
  • try a higher epr/flex setting

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Yes and thankfully pillows are the cheapest part of the mask. I get about 3 months before I need to look into replacing them.

also, make sure the vents are not clogged and that air can escape the mask properly. Once again, actual mask model would help in determining if yours is one of the model that commonly experiences issues with this.
