The key to successful CPAP therapy is a good mask fit. Your mask needs to be comfortable. Follow these tips:
Secure your headgear, but do not make it too tight.
Check if you need a new or different mask when you find yourself adjusting your headgear to minimize leaks.
Replace your mask every six (6) months to a year (6-months is recommended by manufacturers).
Do not have your mask cushion crushing against your face; leaks may increase if your mask is too tight. The cushion should be resting on your face, allowing air to fill the cushion and make a seal.
