Anyone try this mask yet?
I'm not overly thrilled with the Swift LT For Her so I'm looking to see what else is out there in terms of nasal pillows. I've tried almost all of them.
Not interested in the Pilario due to everyone having issues with nasal sores. I have extremely sensitive skin (friable) so not going to risk it.
The GoLife looks weird. Anyone use that one?

Paula, the Nuance was the mask that I used during my titration study last Friday and I loved it! Of course, I have nothing else to compare it too, but it was very light and comfortable, and didn't leave any marks on my face. The nasal pillows are gel filled and very soft, but they didn't seem to collapse when I rolled around during the night. I have very long hair and I wondered if the strap would slip on the back of my head as I rolled over, but it never moved. I sleep on my side part of the time and on my back the rest of the time, so I know I rolled around with it. The nasal pillows sit on the outside of the nostrils and didn't feel like I had something "sticking in my nose" which would have driven me nuts. lol I remember that at one point during the night I woke up feeling like my right nostril was a bit sore. I think the pillow had shifted a bit to where it was pointed at an angle towards the side of the nostril. I just pulled it away from my nose for a few seconds, then put it back on my nostrils. It went back into place perfectly, and I didn't have any more issues with it. My nose wasn't sore in the morning. It's the mask that I plan to order with my machine when I get my prescription this week (or next week depending on how much time my doctor takes off for Turkey Day!). It worked great for me!
