Ratings & Reviews
Love the concept and there are issues.
by Joshua Gottesman (Las Vegas, NV) -
First, let me say what I like about this mask. It's lightweight and comfortable, and I can wear my glasses while I'm wearing the mask. In fact, a few times I've almost forgotten to take them off before going to sleep because I'm so used to using a normal mask. Cleaning is also easy, although I have forgotten to remove the filter a few times. Now the downside. While in theory a nasal pillow creates a good seal, it still sometimes leaks on my face. When using just the single strap, it's easy for me to accidentally knock it off my face, although this generally only happens when I'm shifting in bed, and I quickly replace it. The full headgear works better, however the full headgear is not as comfortable to me. Second, the mask has been abrasive to my nostrils, and I can only wear it for a few days at a time. My nostrils are very sore when I wake up and remove it, although that passes quickly. However, a few times it has actually rubbed so much it opened up a sore on my nostril. Using Vaseline reduces this, however I don't know if that's affecting the seal. Also, occasionally a nose hair that's growing in near the edge of my nostril gets very abraded and starts to pimple. The bottom line is my AHI goes up when I'm wearing this mask and that's not a good thing. I love the concept of the mask and its comfort, and I think I'm going back to a normal mask. I can only give this one a weak recommendation.
