Thanks, still going through all the information on this forum.. it's a fantastic resource!
I'll persist with it, only getting around 3hrs per night at the moment.. had one 5hr+ night and for the first time since I can remember, I didn't wake up with a headache!
Was using a quatro fx which didn't work to well for me. Poor seal around upper nose area and a really bad push against the bridge of my nose. Got a simplus a couple of weeks ago and haven't looked back. The seal around my nose is far better. This is about the best mask i have tried for people with a high nose bridge. I am using a cloth cover to get it just that little bit better but even without this it is still far better. The mask is far more comfortable. I do not have to get a ratchet to tighten the mask down to get a good seal and the head straps are far better at keeping the mask in position overnight than previous masks i have tried. and overall the proof shows in the stats that the machine shows me with my average incidence going down from about a 9 to a 5 so overall very happy with my purchase.
I have only been on treatment for 2 months and have tried numerous masks during the trial period . I had settled on the F&P Eson nasal mask and really liked how it sealed and could be worn so loose. When I first saw the ad for the Simplus it struck me as being very similar in construction except for its size to the Eson so I was anxious to try it before I selected a free mask allowed with our Provincial Treatment program. To make a long story short I was given a Simplus to try last week and I can say it is by far the best full face mask I have tried and believe me I have tried many. Far superior to any including the Quattro Mirage. I basically can sleep in any position without leaks and that is a Godsend as I am a side sleeper and found all the masks leaked in that position with the exception of the Eson and now the Simplus. I would highly recommend this mask to anyone. It is certainly worth a try.
Hi to all. My first post here as a new member. I have tried quite a few masks including the Resmed Mirage which was quite good. I have also tried a lot of nasal and nasal pillow masks (actually bought these masks about 6 I reckon).
By far the F&P Simplus (L) is the most comfortable! I actually look forward to going to bed to put it on, it's that good! Or should I say, it suits me that well.
I try to wear a nasal mask but just cannot get comfortable with them. A few problems, I have a light beard and 'mo and also tend to be quite congested by the time I go to bed.
I think once I get tired my eyes tend to weep, then I get congested and therefore can't breathe through the ol' schnozaroony. Also the Pilairo (which is my preferred nasal mask) seems to irritate my moustache bristles.
I am always on the lookout for a better mask though, does anyone have other suggestions? I would really like to use just a nasal mask so that I don't have to stuff around with getting reading glasses on or off through the frame of a full face mask.
I have been using CPAP for only 6 weeks but have taken to it like a duck to water!
