Noisy face mask
on the 30th Nov 2015
The CPAP machine is great and the mask work well for me. But the face mask produces a pulsing noise of rushing air that comes out of the front air vents (not leakage). I see that this is a major problem for many users of many types of mask.They all say on various fora that their partners are driven mad by the sound (on a par to the snoring!).
Nasal adventures !

Relatively easy to get used to and reasonably comfortable. I found it much better when the strap portion on the top of the head is removed as when it's on it takes a fair bit of adjusting to keep the back from pressing on branches of the occipital nerve.The two main drawbacks I have are; 1. It has tended to give me me spots which are quite broad based and indolent around the areas of skin covered by the seal. 2. If you have even a small degree of nasal blockage you have to work a little hard with your breathing and as a result it detracts from the relief of ones OSA .When my nose is relatively clear it's very good hence the rating of seven but any flow impediment from either nasal allergy or coughs and colds and I switch to nose and mouth mask. P.s.You don't feel as outlandish with the lower profile of the nasal mask in comparison with the bomber pilot dam buster mouth and nose combo...wizard prang roger and out !!! Hugo

Well presented and snug-fitting mask with flexible strap arrangement. Rather more fiddly to put on than previous mask.
Design lets it down

This is a great mask, very comfortable and good seal. Unfortunately it has a plastic plug type thing on the front that has a tendancy to fall off when you're a sleep. This leaves a hole in the mask that lets all the air out. I can't understand why this isn't fixed to the mask in some way as I can see no reason to take it out. I have looked into whether you can buy spare plastic plugs (it's small and am concerned that it will fall out when travelling and get lost), however as far as I can see you can't, which means that if it does go missing you would have to buy a new mask. This is a real shame because if it wasn't for this small flaw this would be the perfect mask.

It and its hose are a bit stiff but it is relatively comfortable and easy to put on even in the dark. Seal moderately effective.
