Full Face Beards ZZ TOP LOOK

Postby N101245 » Tue Jun 06, 2017 12:33 am

What is the best way to work with someone with a full face beard for CPAP titration. I was told to put 10/20 on the outer edges of the full face mask to make a seal?

no, don't put anything on it. You just crank it down and live with the leak.

I actually have one tonight. Very full beard. So long in fact, that when I was putting on the EKG pads, I had to hold the beard out of the way. ewwww.

I ended up splitting this fella, and started with a nasal mask, but his nose stopped up. Switched to a Fisher & Paykel Simplus FFM, put it on tight, and his leaks stayed around 40. Ended up with a good titration.
