[Equipment] Pillow issue solved maybe
#1
Wink 
hi all

since recently being diagnosed i have had problem sleeping with a full face mask as i turn quite a lot and like to sleep on my side, the mask was therefore being pushed off leading to a high leakage

after looking at and reading reports on pillow threads i went against the cpap one and purchased a tempur cloud pillow similar prices but no cut outs so you are free to move anywhere on the pillow and it moulds not only around face but also mask

2 nights in so far and leaks have dropped dramatically and i am now able to get to sleep on my side, so heres hoping it lasts and is not a one off

thought i would share some success with you all

Thanks for sharing. I will need to replace my pillow soon and I might look into this option.

If it works, it would be worth the cost. Hopefully, you can return it within a reasonable timeframe if it doesn't help you.

I didn't realize those pillows were that pricey. However, if you can afford to buy it and it's helping you get a better night's sleep, then it's worth it.

We've looked at them for me but I'm concerned about the heat issues. We have a memory foam topper for our bed and it is hot. And hard as a brick when cold.

After you've used it a while, please write a review of it in the Review section.
