I currently use a Nuance Pro nasal pillow mask with decent results. I use the size large pillow. Its been my only mask, and what the sleep clinic talked me into when i first started the whole cpap thing earlier this year.
since its the only one Ive used i cannot really compare to anything else.
I suspect Im not alone with this, but whenever I roll over onto either side I find i wake up to readjust the mask so it wont leak when in that position. So the benefit of a better sleep through good breathing is offset by waking up whenever i roll over, which is quite often through the night, and then having to fall asleep again. Ive been at this since february and havent noticed really any improvement in my restfullness. The computer printouts say everything is great, but of course it really doesnt know how long it takes me to get back to sleep after each movement. Anyhow, I digress.
I have a large nose, and have been researching different types of masks. Id like to try something other than this nasal pillow mask, at least as a change once in a while. I like what Ive been reading about the respironics wisp, and there is a review within the product review forums, but for the life of me cannot find within any of the posts where the person indicates the size of their nose. Or facial hair. Now to me, this seems like it would make a very big difference on how a mask fits and seals, and some designs would fit better than others. So then, anyone that has used this mask, I would love to hear what size your nose is and associate that with your review of the mask, and weather or not you have a mustache. These things are not cheap, and to buy a mask a find out it doesnt fit is just not within my budget.
there is a thread started within the product review forum of this Respironics Wisp Nasal Mask that has some very good input, but virtually no nose size info. If one of those people read my post and know the size of there nose I would love to hear from you.
maybe Im out to lunch on this whole nose size issue, and if so please let me know, and thanks in advance all who give me some useful advise.
Oh, and this is my first post! Hello fellow Darth Vaders!
And by the way, I have a couple brand new small and medium nose pillows for my Nuance Pro if someone wants them, never used. It would be a shame to throw them out. just pm me with your address.
