"It's a shame nothing can be done about your polyps and septum, which is no doubt the cause of your issues.  It too hate the Oracle, but there are a lot of people who use it very successfully - just not you or I lol."

"I have been seen by  ENT consultants who have diagnosed nasal polyps and a deviated septum. They have considered that surgery is too risky and as one of them said I can still breath through my mouth."

Kath Hope replied to Edam's discussion Flexifit 432
"I honestly don't know Edam, as people usually ask us how to keep their mouths closed rather than open.  It sounds like you need an ENT referral due to severe nasal issues.  I had to have some surgery to breathe better in the masks."

"I tried the Simplus last night but the 95% pressure went up to 19.5 from 14 on previous nights using the 432. What can I use to keep my mouth open when using a Full Face Mask???"

Kath Hope replied to Edam's discussion Flexifit 432
"Hi Edam.  Good to hear the new mask is helping, and those F & P FlexiFit 431, 432 and Forma's are still a favourite for a lot of people due to the chin support.  (In fact we added the Forma to the charity's website yesterday…"

Flexifit 432

I have gone back to using a F & P Flexitfit 432 which has resolved the double inhaling and high pressure problem I have had with other masks.But after using it for a few days now I have found that the back of the headgear cuts into the crease between my neck and back.I think years ago I used to use different headgear on the 431/432/Forma masks but I cant remember what it was.What headgear can I use instead of the F & P one?See More

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"The final answer is to change my mask back to a F & P  Flexifit 432 which has reduced my 95% pressure by up to 4cm.. Last night my 95% pressure was 16.1 with a AHI of 0.6"

Edam replied to Edam's discussion Double inhaling
"After over 2 years of visiting the hospital and Resmed and with many posts on various forums I have found the answer. Use my inhaler 4 hours later Simple !!!"
