Help finding discontinued maskI
I am trying to find a new or used mask. It is a respironics contour nasal mask model no. 302180. I have been using this model for over 20 yrs and have tried other masks but they don't work as well for me. It has been discontinued and I need one soon [section removed]. Thanks very much!

For the record, a mask is a prescription item. Asking to purchase, sell, or trade a prescription item is not allowed on this forum.

Because your situation is unique, I will not close this thread. Instead, I will modify your original post and remove the parts about wanting someone's mask.

RE: Help finding discontinued maskI
you might look into the Respironics Prolife lite nasal mask. Its also a non replaceable cushion mask very similiar to that your old mask.

It can also be boiled 4 min put in cool water for 4 seconds and molded to your faces contours though you dont have to do that.

And its still available . I have a used one that I use sometimes even though its a size to small for me and have excellent results with it.

RE: Help finding discontinued maskI
I tried the profile lite last night for about an hour and it just did not work. It leaked bad around the bottom of the mask. I used a comfort classic the rest of the night. It is a medium and seems to smother me around my nostrils so I have a large on the way to see if it will help. Sure wish I had bought several contour nasal masks before they stopped making them. Having problems with my pacemaker and afib and also this cpap stuff is no fun for this old man. " Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays"

RE: Help finding discontinued maskI
Pappaw try boiling the mask for 4 minutes. Then put it in cold water for 4 seconds. Take it out and press it to your face in the position you wear it in. It has a inner core that will mold to the shape of your face at the bottom side and top.

The one I have is at least a couple of years old as it was given to me by a lady who wouldnt use her machine when given it several years ago.

Its a small which is a size or two to small for me in that mask but it works great for me even over a thick mustache leak wise.

Small tip. The top doesnt have to touch your forehead. Mine never does. That inner flap will stop any top leaks with practically no tension. What will happen though at least with mine is if you over tighten the top straps it will lever the bottom of the mask away from your face and cause leaks. the bottom straps are the important ones in that mask not the top ones. Top straps can be very loose and actually it works better when they are.
