Mask suggestion?
Hi, new here.

I've been using the Respironics Profile Lite (M) mask since I started CPAP 6 years ago. For some idiotic reason they have discontinued it. If I could find somebody that sells them, I'd buy 5 or 6!! Across the internet, I can see people are not happy about this.

I've now tried at least 6 different masks and none of them are working. I can't get them to fit correctly or they hurt my face. My latest one is a ResMed N10 which I am waiting for.

I know they're all different, but I can't find a mask even close to what this was, which was pretty much perfect for me...any suggestions?

I am still finding these supplied from most vendors. As an example I saw Supplier #14 has them for $49.00 USD.

That is true but I haven't seen any that offer all sizes anymore. I used a Profile Lite Medium for 16 years and can't find any anywhere.

However, I like my new mask a lot better. Although I still have a Profile Lite I no longer use it. It seems really stuffy compared to the Wizard 210 which is what I am using now. It has a higher exhaust flow and makes breathing so much more comfortable.

I see "medium small" and "medium wide" in the sizing drop down menu of Supplier #14's advertisement, as well as the part numbers from Respironics.
