New Design - Dreamwear Nasal Headgear with Arms

RE: New Design - Dreamwear Nasal Headgear with Arms
I agree with Stacey. TheLankyLefty27 checked a DreamWear mask for pressure drops. He used a manometer hooked up to the mask and assessed for diminished mask pressure with one of the side tubes pinched shut. The manometer showed that there was very minimal difference in mask pressure when one side was occluded.

RE: New Design - Dreamwear Nasal Headgear with Arms
I have used both the Dreamwear and the F30I. I have no problems with the frame tubing crush when sleeping on my side. I get plenty of air with either blocked off. Both masks get out of position though, and the way I deal with that is fold the corner of my pillow under, and keep the mask over that open area. I feel the Dreamwear is harder to breath through. Noise from either doesn't seem to bother my wife.

Staceyburke, Bobaloo & Billygoat,

I'm glad that the Dreamwear works for the three of you.  It's good that you have a mask that makes you happy.  BUT, you all sound like the DME clinician who insisted it couldn't possibly be an issue.  LOL

My message was stating that it doesn't work for ME. The crushed side channel woke ME up several times a night and left ME un-rested.
