New user, having a problem with leak after 4+ hours

Sat, 29 Jan 2022 05:39:03 GMT

I'm just getting started with bleep and I'm on my 4th night. The last two nights have been better, I've lasted about 4 ish hours before I get a leak and I wake up. At this point, I just switch out my hose and mask so I can get the last few hours of sleep. Any suggestions on how to make it through the night? It has taken a few nights to get this far. In earlier attempts, I had problems with a leak way earlier. Did anyone else have this type of issue while trying to adjust to this new mask? I'm going to look at the data from my Resmed system via Oscar to see if things look better as at this point I think it is too early to tell since I'm only getting about 4 hours of sleep. I can post more about what I'm seeing in the data....

Berger - Where is the leak coming from? The adhesive or the connection between the ports and the QR-Socket? If it's the adhesive, try using a stronger astringent to clean around your skin, like isopropyl alcohol (50%, 70%, 90%) which has several different strengths. You can also try reducing your humidity setting, if it's high. What is your humidity setting? What is your pressure? Are you aware the QR-Sockets are a twist to connect? happy to setup a webinar to help. Call me at 919-619-7170, Stuart
