Hi everyone. I’m very new to my CPAP. I’ve only had it for a week and just discovered this subreddit.

I’m having trouble with my mask. I know it is the right size because it was fitted by a technician.

I’m currently using the full-face Resmed AirTouch F20 (the memory foam cushion one). And the issue I’ve been having is that the air leaks out from around the mask (either as a quiet air leak or as the “farting noise”) when I’m breathing out. And I keep tightening my mask fit, but I’ve read online that you shouldn’t need to tighten the headgear that much and that the mask should just rest on your face with a light suction. But that just doesn’t work. So I’m slightly confused about what to do. It is so annoying that it actually wakes me up at night.

I’m not sure what the solution is so was wondering if you had any suggestions.

Thanks for your help!
