RE: Nasal Mask Advice??
Hi JimZZZ,

I've used a Resmed Swift FX Nano for the past 9 days and it's the first non pillow type mask that I've had any sort of success with. Apart from the base of the mask leaving my nose marked between the nostrils where it pulls up during the night, there's a lot to recommend it. That said, I am planning to give the Wisp a try as its' headgear arrangement appears to avoid pulling the mask up on area between the nostrils as has been my experience with the Nano.

I am not typically a mouth breather but have tried the Resmed chin strap, and totally agree with trish6hundred's about not being able to keep it from coming off while sleeping.
