Looking for a new nasal mask
#1
I have been using the same nasal mask (Vio Nasal Mask) for over 3 years. I alternate it with my nasal pillows every couple of days.
I don't know the size but the triangle seal is 70mm 2.75 in. Would that make it a large ?
So what nasal mask do people suggest I look at.

Thanks for your help.

Check out the Optilife nasal pillows from Supplier #26 which sells for around $55 complete with three pillow sizes and headgear. They offer a 30 day free trial on masks which is always a plus, so snoop around there for something you think fits your needs.. I have the Optilife mask and find it to be excellent. I have no experience with the nasal mask as opposed to a nasal pillows. I have never seen how a nasal mask would be as good as a pillows (if using the proper size pillows) but to each his/her own.

I think many people try the pillows but use a size too small, which can cause nose irritation. I went from a medium pillow to the large and the nose discomfort went away.

Return insurance is good idea whenever trying a new mask, allows you to return the mask within 30 days for a refund in case didn't work for you

My mistake, didn't check your location beforehand, return insurance only available in US for US customers
Check with local suppliers, they might have some sort of masks trial program for free or a small fee

While back, I wanted to try full face mask, rented 3 masks from a local merchant and end up buying one of them from abroad (masks are too pricey around here and not covered by private insurance)
I've been using the same nasal mask for the last 5 years, works quite well for me and cheap to run
Last time changed the cushion was on 6 June 15 and still going strong
The good thing about Activa LT nasal mask is that you can use SoftGel mask cushion on the same frame, they don't make masks like that any more. I better stock-up, in case the mask get discontinued
