General Discussion on any topic relating to CPAP and/or Sleep Apnea.
I've tried several masks now and one thing I've noticed on all of them to varying degrees is that tightening the lower straps pulls my head down and it can be very uncomfortable. I attribute this to how far down on the back of the head the head straps go...below the natural pivot point so it restricts movement. So far the one that I've had the least problems with is the Simplus but to make that one work I had to heat up the nose brace and bend it out some so that it would seal better on the bridge of my nose. The Quatro gives me the most problems. The only other full face CPAP I've tried is the Dreamwear but that doesn't get a good enough seal under my nose and the slits won't line up well enough for free breathing. Does anyone know of other full face mask alternatives that has the lower straps higher up on the back of the head? Thank you
