I bought this online (without a supposedly needed prescription) based on some of the positive reviews here. It's a lot better than the mask the DME gave me in the beginning. After 2 weeks it's a keeper. I must be one of those lucky ones with the size of head and nostrils it was designed for.
I sleep on my side and toss and turn a lot and it has stayed in place all night.
Now to convince the DME to change me to this so insurance pays for replacements on schedule. $24 to replace the silicone is a bit much.
I have been using the Pilairo mask for three months and it has worked out perfectly for me. I like it because it is lightweight, ultra comfortable pillows, and quiet. It has never fallen off my face as others have reported. The headband works fine for me though others have reported some problems. My treatment using this mask and the ResMed AutoSet S9 has been very effective bringing my AHI score down from 63 to about 2.5 on average.
But I do have a question to ask of users. Has anyone noticed any change in the design of the mask during the summer of 2013 ? I received my first mask in May, 2013 and just received a new one in Aug, 2013. The new mask seems to have been redesigned. More specifically, the piece of horizontal plastic which fits as kind of a frame...below the pillow and resting on the area under my nose and above my upper lip...feels more rigid with the new mask from Aug, 2013 I just received. It doesn't seem to have as much flexibility as my old mask received in May, 2013. I don't think I am imagining it but I guess I could be. I think there may be a redesign of that piece of plastic. I sent Fisher & Paykel an email but they did not reply back. So, I was just curious if any other users are reporting any perceived difference in the design of this mask ? My DME provider said that others have been reporting the same to him. He has been hearing this. Any comments would be appreciated.
