Mask Leaks

Hi,My CPAP machine is the Resmed Autosense 10. I recently started to visit the Resmed MyAir site to check the data that my machine was sending. When I wake in the night I often notice that my mask is leaking so I have to re-adjust. On checking the data I can see that my mask leaks quite often.

I have used…See More
