Thank you for the link DeepBreathing.Very helpful as always.

H-barbie:

I already have a used Quattro mask,but the cushion is old and the headgear looks to be be marginal.There are a couple of places to get gear in Manila,but that is quite inconvenient.Buying a wrong mask would be a lot cheaper than a trip to Manila for sure.

Check with the online suppliers. Some of them ship internationally. Supplier #2 and I *think* #10 does. Suppliers List link is at the top of every page.

The only reason you would need a full face mask is if you breathe through your mouth at night. And even if you did, you may prefer a nasal mask or pillows over the FFM which tend to leak and be difficult to size. Nasal pillows are cheaper and most come with several sizes in the box. You'd then need a chin strap to keep your trap shut.

I find the sizing templates to be helpful but not entirely accurate for me. When I tried the Simplus mask, I got the sizing template and it indicated that I am right on a medium. After using the mask, I thought that I needed a small. Got the small and I was right for several reasons that I don't think are considered by the templates and are probably beyond the capability of a "simple" template.

Best Regards,

I appreciate all the input.I figured to get a cushion for the FF mask because I already have the mask.

Paula,you make a valid point about the nasal pillows,but I have another reason for trying one that I had not considered before.I get up in the middle of the night with heartburn.I take an antacid and then go back to bed.That would be tough to do with a FF mask.
