We’re going to review the various masks that are available for the Resmed Airsense 10. And talk about some of the reasons you might be experiencing a leak.
The AirSense 10 CPAP machine is a popular option for individuals with sleep apnea and snoring.
There are a few key features for the AirSense 10.
First, it’s a smaller size in terms of the CPAP machines on the market. So it’s good for traveling and it’s good to have, if you have limited space.
In addition to that, it’s super quiet compared to other machines. According to customers, it is one of the quietest within the industry.
In addition to that, it also has auto ramp or smart start features with pressure relief.
Another great feature is it includes heated humidification, which allows you have some moisture and humidity added to the air that you’re breathing in.
This is good if you are experiencing dry nasal passages or dry mouth.
The ResMed Airsense can use a variety of CPAP mask styles:
All of these masks work well with the AirSense 10.
Whatever design you select, what do you need to make sure is that you get a good seal.
This will determine how well the fit and how well the performance is in terms of masks.
If you see a frowny face on the display, please check the seal as the machine is detecting a leak.
CPAP masks require prescription since fit is critical. The doctor will prescribe the right style and fit based on your sleep test. Sometimes you might need to try different style masks to see what suits your sleeping style best.
Leaks can occur if the silicon mask is slipping from your skin. This can be caused by the oils that accumulate on the mask surfaces. You will want to wash it with warm water and mild soap. You can even use baby shampoo.
Let dry and this should restore a good seal on your mask when you sleep.

The third and most common reason for leaks is due to the mouth opening. When air is directed through the nasal passages, if you open up your mouth the air quickly escapes your mouth, defeating the purpose of the CPAP machine.
You can sometimes use a chin strap to help train the mouth to remain closed. It takes time to bet used to nose breathing but the body will get accustomed to in time.
These three tips should address most of the leaks issues that you might encounter with your Airsense 10 mask.
