Mask fit - chipmunk cheeks
Mask fit - chipmunk cheeks
Very new to CPAP and hoping to get advice From users. I’ve got a device that I have not yet successfully made it through one sleep. After initial receipt and trying it, I contacted the supply company and their respiratory therapist recommended switching to a full face mask as I breathe through both my mouth and nose during sleep . The full mask is an Airfit F20 style. Also of note is that I’m a side sleeper and have a closely trimmed beard. When I try the new full mask, my cheeks blow up. Does this sound like a fit issue and I need to find another mask?
