Hi everyone! So I have been using the Mirage Quattro FFM for a little over a week. After about 2 nights of use had a sore nose with a few open sores. It took about 5-6 days to heal up. So I got a Gecko gel pad to use with it. Did so for a couple more nights to find out I had another sore nose. Argh!
Anyway, I'm off to the DME tomorrow to try on more FFM masks. I'm thinking of trying the Amara View, Simplus and the F10 masks. Anyone have any suggestions, comments on these?
I'm also thinking about getting a nasal pillow mask and chinstrap as well as a backup. I have read all the good reviews about the P10, any other suggestions about nasal pillows?
Do you think I am going about this the right way with trying to different masks at the same time? Thanks for all the help and advice.
My only experience is with the Simplus. The RT initially fitted me with a medium and it hit on my facial pressure points making it very uncomfortable. I came across the sizing guide and found that I'm just at the break point between the medium and large. I took a gamble and tried a large size. Going up in size has worked out great. My AHI's dropped and, more importantly, my quality of sleep vastly improved.
I'm not pushing the mask brand, I'm just pointing out that a change in the size may make the difference.
my advise is to demand the DME fit you with the mask while using a pressure or range of pressures your prescribed.
