odd, occasional mask leak

RE: odd, occasional mask leak
You could also try using a chinstrap under your mask to prevent your mouth dropping open occasionally. I use one and it really does help.

RE: odd, occasional mask leak
I just came across a Snore Relief Adjustable Chin Strap at yourstoreonline that looks promising. It's only $7.95 and has an upward pull rather than to the rear which can cause obstruction and pain. This is the same principle as the Knightsbridge dual chin strap from Supplier #37.

RE: odd, occasional mask leak
I just started using an Air Touch F20 (foam cushion). Big change after being a Wisp user for 5 years but finally had to do something about mouth leaks. Sleep Doc is an F20 user and he recommended it. Wasn't nearly a bad as I thought it would be--really quite comfortable--but on the 2nd night I found the bottom of the cushion was in my mouth. You really have to wear these masks tight. I didn't wear the cervical collar that night--I am going back to it as I actually missed it. I try and keep my mouth closed using it, but it is kind of difficult when you have pressure in two places on my face now. Tonight (3rd night) I am going to try and get my act together.
