Can I use any mask?
#1
Can I use any mask?
I own a old-school CPAP - Respironics REMstar REM Plus C-Flex CPAP Machine.

Can I purchase any kind of mask for it?
I was wanting to try the kind that just goes on my nostrils such as this one - [Commercial Link Removed] Search Supplier #14 for, respironics-dreamwear-nasal-cpap-mask.

Will this mask fit ( hose size etc.) On my machine?

Sorry for the dumb question.

Yes, Masks and non-heated hoses are universal and can be used on any full sized machine.

I just realized my URL was removed.

Thank you for that answer!

Does anyone have any opinions on this nasal mask? See pic.

Any mask will work on any CPAP machine, as long as we're not talking about a "travel" CPAP.

The link had to be removed in that first post as it violates Board rules. You can't link to sales sites as you did.
