Preferred FFM?

I want to know what is the Best FFM?

I'm currently using the Amara view but even with some adjustments it still hurt the bottom of my nose. It's not that bad but I'm still in tryout and I will like your experience about other FFM.

And if you think I should give a try to an another mask. The numbers with the Amara view are great but I still not feel well rested and think maybe the mask is one cause of it.

What are your opinion?
Try going up a size on the Amara! It is a very good mask and I had the same problem with mine. I moved up a size on the cushion and all is good!

If yes how do we do it?

Yes, simply put the words or phrase in quotation marks and it will give you a search result of posts or threads that have that specific phrase.

For instance doing a search for full face mask will result in numerous posts/threads that have the word "full", "face" or "mask" or a combination of any of those words.

Doing a search for "full face mask" (in quotes) will give only threads or posts that have the exact phrase full face mask in them.

For more info, please see the Tutorial on searching, found in our Member Account Help Forum, here:

After a lot of "fiddling" and positioning of my head on the pillow to get them right we could not get any but the Amara View to not stop leaking mainly at the top with the air escaping into my eyes. Of course it had to be the last one we tried [Amara View] that did the trick....and of course it was also the dearest at $A295....Used it last night and obtained similar results [good] to my usual Wisp Nasal Mask and only a very slight increase in leakage according to Sleepyhead....At this stage I'm very impressed though getting it fitting right the 1st time was a little bit of a test, something I'm sure will get easier with time and experience.

Thanks for your feedback Mutineer I appreciate !

Last night I tried the AirFit F10 and it had some leaks issue put I will try to fix those tonight more to come Smile

Hi Judy1843 Smile

You had the columella and the tip of your nose that was hurting in the morning?

I also had an irritation of my skin close to my nose ...

I had the medium but with the large there was a lot of leaks from the top ... not you?

You were able to fix the top leaks?

I really liked the feel of the Amara View Bigwink

Waiting for your feedback Big Grin

Yesterday I slept with the AirFit F10 and I had zero events like but some issue with leaks since I'm a side sleeper ...

More to come !

Finally I will try the the Amara view with the large cushion like you suggest judy1843 Wink

It's really the most comfortable of the 6 mask that I tried so far and I will do what's necessary to make it work!

Hopefully the large will do the trick for me Lolabove
