This situation creates several questions/changes:
- If my leaks are so high, why is my AHI so low?
Are the leaks due to leakage around my mouth? I notice that sometimes my cheeks fill with air, and air escapes through my mouth (despite the tape). This seems to happen (most) when I stop breathing, but that's just my perception. I hope this is not the problem as I really want to use a nasal mask and not return to a mouth mask.
It feels that I'm getting a good seal around my nose - some leakage, but nothing overly severe. But perhaps there is leakage.
I tried the P30i cushion, but it irritated my nose. Perhaps I can try that cushion again now that my nose has healed from surgery a couple of weeks longer. I use a small cushion for the N30i and P30i, but I do have a medium P30i I can try.
I ordered a new small N30i cushion on Amazon. I have the older, hard plastic cushion.
Would a N30 or N20 mask be better for me? I would need to make that purchase.
Is there a non-Resmed nasal mask that would work better?
