My CPAP mask sometimes leaks air. Is this normal?

Make sure your CPAP is turned on before applying the mask. For the best fit, position the straps on your headgear while lying down. Overtightening the headgear can worsen mask leaks which can cause redness or sores on the skin. A small leak at the sides or bottom of the mask is acceptable, but air should not leak into the eyes to avoid dry eyes. You can contact your local branch for assistance with this issue.
