The CPAP can only achieve the best treatment results when the mask is suitable and comfortable to wear. Leakage will affect the treatment effect, so it is very important to eliminate the leakage of the mask. For example, reposition the mask and adjust the headband.
If you use a nasal mask, avoid breathing with your mouth open during treatment. Leakage of air from the mouth reduces the effectiveness of the treatment. If there is a serious leak in the mouth, a full face mask or a mandibular bandage may solve the problem. Contact your doctor or supplier for details.
If you are using a full face mask and you cannot find a comfortable way to wear it, contact your doctor or equipment supplier. Different sizes and styles of masks may suit you.
Wash your face before wearing the mask to remove facial oils, which will help you wear comfortably and extend the life of the mask pad. Do not wear it while the mask is dry.
