Amara View Mask
Amara View Mask
Philips advise that the life of the Amara headgear is short, and after two months use I can confirm. I was warned on purchase to  slide strap over back of head rather than pull mask over nose, and I have been religious in doing that. Using velcro type hook tiny pad onto a quite elastic strap means the thing fails to hook-up even with significant pressure after a short period of use.

Luckily the ResMed F30 strap fits perfectly, is wider but not too wide for the connectors, has less stretch in the key area of hook attachment and is otherwise fine. The F30 wastes too much air so I don't get the S02 I need so it is in retirement 

As a general comment on Under nose full face, the balance of tension between top straps and bottom straps with "chin in relaxed mode" gets the right tilt, and without the right tilt in sleeping mode it will leak from the lower lip area or the nose.. adjust tension when you lay down so gravity effect minimized.

Do people on the ISS get OSA??

Oh, yes and don't smile at night, or it leaks out the side

Velcro is a trademarked brand of hook and loop fastener and a generic term for that type of material.

Strictly speaking, a word cannot be both trademarked and generic... it makes the lawyers unhappy.

RE: Amara View Mask
Thanks for the tips on hybrids.
My f30 is a diva but when adjusted just right she's worth it.


Velcro is to hook and loop as Kleenex is to tissue and Coke is to cola drink.

Does it make lawyers cring when it's common language, not sales related? 
Tolerated due to the benefits of brand recognition?
