[Equipment] Silicone mask is so comfortable.
Hi, I want to be sure everyone knows about a new Respironics sleep mask, Respironics DreamWear Nasal CPAP Mask.  My own sleep therapist has apnea and he uses it. The tube comes off the top of the head so there is no getting tangled.  It is made of silicone so there is no velcro. It does not fit inside the nostrils so no sore red nostrils in the morning. I'm in heaven. like

It's the one I've used. No issues with it. Of course it's the first and only one I've used so I can't compare it to others.

The full face version curves up a little more around the nose and seems to give a better seal. But I only used it one night. The nasal cushion version you're talking about often leaked on me and shot air towards my right eye. Everything else about is GREAT though and I'd like to see more masks use this approach.

What kind of music is Flexible Metal?

Seriously, metal!   Thinking-about
I am NOT a doctor.  I try to help, but do not take what I say as medical advice.

I am just a long term user of c.p.a.p. and therefore I have some experience in using these machines and equipment.

However, I am NOT an expert, so advice given should be taken as given in good faith only and NOT medical advice.

It can function as either death-metal or MOR, a.k.a. easy-listening.

how does this compare to other nasal masks?

Instead of velcro straps, they are silicone. And adjustable. I love that the hose sits on the top of my head so I don't have to wrestle with  it at night. Best of all is the redesign of the nasal option. Old nose masks used to have separate nose pillows to fit inside each nostril. This one sits  below the nose and above above the lip and is very comfortable.
