[Equipment] Dreamwear FFM Not Working with Beard
#1
Dreamwear FFM Not Working with Beard
I fell for the hype that the Dreamware FFM works well with beards. If you have had a positive experience or have some tips, I would love to heard about it.

A few months in here are my numbers:
Old mask ( Swift FX nasal pillows) - AHI 4.0 or less , large leaks 20 to 30%

Dreamwear FFM - AHI 5.0 to 9.0 , large leaks 60 to 95%

RE: Dreamwear FFM Not Working with Beard
Obviously, this is an individual matter dependent on the thickness, coverage, and edges of the beard. 

When I have nasal congestion, I have good results with the Dreamwear FFM mask, but then again, I use a #1 blade for a beard trim.

Welcome to the seemingly never-ending tryouts to get the best fit.

BTW, my go-to mask is the ResMed Mirage Activa LT.
