I've not been able to find any detailed user review comments on the intriguing CPAP SEAL Gel Liner soft polymer gel mask pad/sealer. If they work and if they hold up anywhere near the manufactures replacement time of 6 months then what looks costly on the surface might be a bargain.
Remzzz, Pad-a-cheek, and Silent Sleep pads have helped increase my compliance some but chronic inflammation on the sides of my nose at the point of cushion contact is apparent with my favorite mask to date, the Resmed F-10.
Any experienced comments or advice on the CPAP SEAL Gel Liner would be greatly appreciated.
I ordered one last month and it was unusable by me. It is so sticky that it sticks to itself and I could not get it to work at all. The company web site says there is a customer satisfaction guarantee within 15 days but you need to email them for a return authorization. I emailed them and they never supplied the RA. They even just called me as I am writing this and hung up on me when I asked what was unreasonable about expecting a return email within the one day they indicated on the web site and why they sent me an email saying it was shipped when it was not. Now they are threatening to sue me for harassment because after they hung up on me I called them back to finish the discussion but they hung up again and re stated that they are going to sue me..... This has been my experience with this company and its product.
I tried the CPAP Seal but didn't like it at all. It didn't hold its shape properly and was very clammy and unpleasant against the skin. I gave up after the second night.
I find a couple of layers of flannelette draped carefully over the bridge of the nose is sufficient to prevent irritation and stop leaks up the side of the nose. Just be careful that the ends of the cloth don't poke you in the eyes!
