New mask time. Full face and high nose bridge recommendations please

New mask time. Full face and high nose bridge recommendations please
Hi all,

I am up for a new mask soon and was wondering what is out and about now that is a full face mask and that caters to a high nose bridge.
I currently use an f&p simplus which i dont mind but could be a bit better fit and in the past have had a resmed quatro fx which rubber my nose red raw even with a cloth cushion.
i will go with a simplus again if needs be but thought that i might ask around and get a few suggestions to possibly try as well before I jump in at $200 + if i buy from a local supplier in australia

thanks heaps for any alternates
Thanks

if only i could use a pillow but alas even with a chin strap i still have no luck. Ohwell

I've always had problems with ffm's on the bridge of the nose.
I recently tried the new F20 from Resmed and that was much better.

Muddles,

I use the Philips Respironics Amara View which doesn't go over the bridge of your nose at all. It's extremely comfortable and I highly recommend it.

Hi muddles,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Hang in there for more suggestions on masks; good luck to you in finding a mask that works well for you, and also with your CPAP therapy.
