New member with a question...go figure
#1
Wink 
Greetings all, new member here with a question. I've been on CPAP for a month now, and beyond the usual getting started growing pains and questions, I have one specifically for the mask. I'm using the F&P Simplus, and have noticed that as time goes by, the connection between the pillow and the frame become looser and looser, now to the point where they really don't "attach" at all. It's now to the point that to don the mask, I have to hold the pillow to my face with one hand (there's words I never thought I'd type), then hold the frame to the pillow with the other hand, and switching hands then attach the straps. Getting it off in the morning is easier; I remove one of the clips from the frame and the whole thing falls in my lap. Sad I'm due for a new pillow shortly, and maybe that will fix the problem, but was wondering if this was a known issue with the Simplus or do I have a lemon?

Thanks!

You have a lemon. I have been using one since May and it is as good as new. The pillow portion will wear out eventually. Boiling it for a while can extend its life a bit. But the hard plastic portions should last for years.

Check for a crack on the frame. If that is the issue, some epoxy or crazy glue might keep it going for a bit long.

I would contact your DME, Maybe it's a defective mask they should be able to swap it out for you, Shouldn't get that loose so quickly.
Good Luck

Hi JinMHK,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You might try to get it exchanged, it shouldn't be that loose.
Good luck to you with your CPAP therapy.
