I have to undergo some eye surgery and have been successfully using a airfit f20 mask for a long time. It restricts areas around my eyes so my doctor recommended an Amara view mask and gave me a sample. I use pressures of 10/4 on a bipap with 1 liter of oxygen only at night and when I tried the Amara view I kept on getting lots of air blowing up my face past my nose. Can you not use this mask with oxygen or am I not fitting it right. I noticed in lefty’s picture of mask that it was over not under his nose. Am I not putting it on correctly.
Thanks for any suggestions.

I believe there is the big open space that covers the mouth, then a barrier with a hole in it for your nostrils to be over. Hope that helps.

Mikkik,

There is a pretty good video at this link explaining how to fit the mask https://www.usa.philips.com/healthcare/ ... -face-mask

I can only get a good seal with my Amara View when I use mask liners. I started with liners from Remzzzs http://remzzzs.com/ Once I got them to work I used one of the liners as a pattern (transferred to a piece of cardboard as a template) and now I make my own liners from old tee shirts.

It does take me several minutes each night with pressure on to finally get the leaks to stop. The Amara view has been the only mask I have been able to stick with. Like the video above says, the intent is to have your mouth partially open. I get leaks if I close my mouth.

Good Luck

Art
