    Just got my C Pap and am not doing very well with the mask. I wake up and air is coming from the side of my fave, or below my chin. I have tried to adjust the straps, but nothing works. the first couple of nights it worked great, but now i don't know what i have done wrong. HELP!!

    try provent it is applied to the nostrals and makes it hard to breath out i love it. Also i guess beet juice or powder does something with our oxygen i have not tried it yet, but the provent works for me and you need to get a perscription for it.

    also with the cpap i was having a lot of trouble until a women at work told me to wear it as much as i could and that took the pressure off and now i can wear it through the night,once i took it off because i was not used to it i found i would wear it longer and longer easy does it.
