BMC ivolve full face mask
I came across some info on this ffm and was curious if anybody has used one or knows anything about them. I use the ResMed nasal pillows but am thinking about trying a ffm. Any info or help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I've never used the FFM's myself, but I'm sure others will chime in shortly. Just curious why you are wanting to try this? Are you experiencing large leaks?

RE: BMC ivolve full face mask
Hi, I am using nasal pillows atm. I am a mouth breather andI have been using tape to help me keep my mouth closed. That has been working fairly well. I may have to try a chinstrap as well.This ffm I am enquiring about has come up reasonably cheaply,which is the reason I am thinking about trying it.

I am thinking about trying a ffm just to see if it helps with the mouth breathing. This mask is less than half the price of a new one here. I have never hear of this brand before and that is why I was asking about it. I don't wamt to waste money on something if it isn't very good. Thanks.

It looks to me like a pretty conventional ffm. Worth a try, for sure. Even if you don't like it, but it fixes your leak issues, you'll at least know that trying other ffm will be worth it. And you'll have it as a back up. There's nothing like being without a back up when you need it! You should see my collection of stuff. I have so much that every once in a while I have to give some of it away.
