Which Mask?

I have a long face, small double chin and a large nose with a narrow bridge. I have tried the Respironics Full Life and the Mirage Quattro and both leak bad around the top of the nose. The air blowing in my eyes wakes me up and negates the value of the CPAP. Which might be a better choice for me to try next, the F&P Forma or the Hans Rudolph 7600 V2?

~ The Respironics Full Life Mask to begin with in my experience has a horrible track record.

~ Using any CPAP mask without a forehead cushion like the Full Life, Quattro FX, Hand Rudolph .......the biggest source of leak tends to be toward the bridge of the nose.

~ Physically go back to the home medical equipment company where you received your CPAP and have them fit you for mask. But this time bring your CPAP machine and attach their sample mask and let it blow at your normal setting. Not at the lower "ramp" setting.

~ Both the Forma & the V2 fit under your chin. Depending on how much is a small double chin, it might not or might work. Watch our video review of the Forma Full Face Mask and the Hans Rudolph 7600 V2
