4. Cover the Mask to your face with your hand and then exhale. If the gas leaks clearly from the edge of the Mask, adjust the mask again till no gas leaks out.


Use your fingers to place the middle of the nose clip while pressing inward while moving your fingertips along the sides of the nose clip until the nose clip is completely pressed into the shape of the bridge of the nose; and quickly inhale to check whether the air is coming from the mask. If the edge includes leakage from the bridge of the nose, adjust the nose clip to ensure that the mask covers the mouth, nose and chin, and the nose clip should be compacted.
