If you had a choice which one would you buy for a mouth breeder?
F.P. Simplus or ResMed Mirage Quattro
I had the Amara view and too hard to stop leaks

Thanks in advance for your time and patience

You must try both (and others) to see what works best for you, your face, etc. Just because something works for others does not mean it will work for you.

unfortunately, choosing the right mask that wil work for you is what i consider the hardest thing about cpap. folks can give you all kinds of good advice on how to adjust the pressures on your machine because that is based on facts.

a mask is more of a personal choice. what works for me may not work for thee. sometimes, you just have to go by trial and error.

take a look here and see what looks interesting to you-

if something catches your eye, read a review or two.

btw, i'm not saying you have to buy from them. but it will give you some information that may help you make a choice.

bonne chance!

Hello to all and thanks for your time and patience
My appointment is due on Wednesday the 13th at 2:30 pm for the teetering test with the mask.
I have read a lot on this site most of what I have read is from page 3 to page 50 trying to get the most on Resmed S9 auto model 36005.
I have learn that you don't need to clean the accessories every day, to fill the water chamber to the maximum line every day with distilled water, only to wipe the mask daily with a lingette unscented.

Since I have powered on the machine to try a mask I noticed in Oscar that there were big leaks so I found a few post talking about it.
I have bought a new water chamber and a new heated tube and filters for the Resmed S9 on amazon and that has improve the leaking problem.

I know that many people are trying to do their best to help newbie like me and many more new users so I have read to try to find the problem and give a chance to the pro to help the others that are asking for the help.
I had the Amara view Mask medium size that was given to me by the guy who sold me the machine and I had a hard time to try to adjust it so I gave it away and I will buy the mask from the clinic that will setup my machine.

I had 2 choices offered by the clinic.
1 pay 95.00 we adjust and good bye.
or
2 pay 330.00 they adjust the machine and do a follow up for 1 month also they will find and give me the proper mask that will work for me. The 95.00 and the 1 month follow up is included in the deal. I will be able to change the mask for free within 1month to make sure I have the right one.
I think the 330.00 is the best choice for me since it help the clinic to survive in my area and I won't have to buy too many mask at 125.00 to 180.00 a piece on amazon to find the right one.
Since I am a mouth breather I am sure there isn't a ton of full face mask and I may hopefully find the right one within that 1 month period.

Once again thanks to you generous people at the CPAPTALK for your time ans patience.

Michel, I am also from Canada. I am a mouth breather when sleeping. I use a Fisher-Paykel nose mask and a chin strap. I got mine at the respiratory place where I bought my machine but I see that you can get them on amazon.ca. Good luck!
