Sleep2snore replied to Lee's discussion DreamWear full face
"I would say if you have the Ramp Start enabled to make it start at a higher pressure.  Check also if you are using a big enough cushion as this is a common mistake.  Same with Nasal Pillows, people tend too use a size to small. Check you…"
