RE: Anyone ever use a Fisher Paykel Pilairo mask?
I have used the Pilairo Q but found over time it causes irritation/sores to the inside of each nostril with regular use, went back to my original mask the Respironics Wisp Nasal Mask and now love it. Now really wonder why I ever changed....

This is people trying real hard to not be assimilated. Eventually they will see the light and use the P10. Because Resistance is Futile!

If ResMed offered a P10 pillow in a size halfway between Medium and Large, I'd probably use it all the time, too. It is such a common mask that supplies like replacement pillows can be found quite cheaply.

I can't use it 2 nights in a row without a good deal of pain. That is why I went looking for alternatives. So I think it is unlikely that I will be assimilated, but stranger things have happened.

Just picked up Pilairo Q #2 today from an online supplier for under $70 for the complete kit. What's not to like?

Wow, great price! Does anyone know if Blue Shield of CA will reimburse you if you buy these things online?

RE: Anyone ever use a Fisher Paykel Pilairo mask?
Okay so I now am the proud owner of a Pilairo Q. And...

[drum roll]

I LOVE IT!!! Too-happy-2

Fits my nose perfectly. I mean, it truly feels like it was custom made for it. (So since most who love it also love the Wisp, I'm planning on getting one of those to use as a backup if the pillows on the Pilairo start bothering me at all.)

But...

does this mean that all of us that love the Pilairo have the same nose size? lol Thinking-about
