RE: Anyone tried the SleepWeaver mask?
SleepWeaver has 4 different masks. I have used all of them.
I would not recommend the original or the advanced.
I really liked the élan but wanted a full face mask for the many times I have nasal congestion.
The Anew full face mask takes some getting used to. It is more prone to leaks than the Élan.
I have been using it now for a couple weeks with mixed results. Some nights AHI ~2.5 last night 5.6, some nights around 10. My sleep study AHI was 78.
The 2 problems I have with the Anew are leaks and irritation at the bottom of my nose (between the nares). Both problems are intermittent.
I definitely recommend you try either the Élan or Anew, but only with return insurance.

Thanks for the advice. I think the VA has elan and is in the process of sending me one. Don't know about ff. I had problems with it being too tight resulting in headaches in the morning, but as you know all masks are different. I'll look into it after trying the elan.

RE: Anyone tried the SleepWeaver mask?
I really liked the Advance w/Zephyr seal. It was my favorite nasal interface; but, after trying everything I could think of, I had to give up on nasal interfaces because I just couldn't safely and comfortably keep the air pressure from escaping from between my lips.

I don't really have any complaints about the Quattro FX I'm currently using, but couldn't resist opportunity to give the Anew a try. I ordered it and it has already arrived at my house - unfortunately I'm not there and won't get my hands on it until this weekend.

Sleep-well
