mask fitment

mask fitment
I  had a medium mask that was too small--i bought a new Large one .  It fits better but i have to crank the lower straps  VERY tight to not leak air on the sides.  Its uncomfortable  and when i wake up my face is SORE .

do you think i should try an  XL   ??

thanks to our awesome healthcare system,  i cant get a sleep study until end of August  !!

Many of the online suppliers listed in the Suppliers List (top of screen) offer sizing guides for masks.

RE: mask fitment
Read the mask primer. Link is in my signature.

My guess is that particular mask does not work with your facial structure. Masks must be tried under pressure and in sleeping position.

That said the ResMed P10 pillows mask (get the fit kit) is among the easiest to seal if you are not a mouth breather or correct mouth breathing another way. See the Mask Primer.

Another good choice may be the F20 with the memory foam cushion
