[Product Review] F&P Brevida
#21
RE: F&P Brevida
I have been using the P10 for some time and although it does leak at times it is only a small amount. So, I recently purchased the F&P Brevida as I hoped it would be better for me that the P10. Unfortunately, after several night of little sleep due to continual high leaking I have abandoned this mask. I did try different adjustments but to no avail.

My problem seems to be that I move around quite a lot during the night, much to my wife's discomfort, and this is the cause of the constant leaking.

Good review of the mask!

I have tried the mask myself and I found it was great, except for 1 major issue.

The diffuser on the front pops off so easily that it wakes me up. I move a lot and since the connection on the front of the mask can move around, the plastic cover hits the mask and comes off. It becomes very loud at that point. Where I got the mask actually gave me 3 different ones and they all did it. 

It was unfortunate because otherwise, I loved the mask.

I also had this problem with the diffuser.... using a small jewelers file i lightly sanded the bottom edge until the problem went away I have been getting the lowest AHI ever with this mask

Skylark, so glad to have another woman compare the Brevida to the Swift LT for Her.  I've tried several other masks, like the FX (loose headgear), the Dreamwear (squishy side channels) and the Airfit P30i (better but still too squishy).  The good ole standby Swift LT was always my "go to" mask.

Today, I received an email about the Brevida being only $89 and the descriptions / reviews sound positive.

My only question is whether I can clip the hose above my head.  I've always done that with any mask and had a "Lady McGyver" bungee set up, loosely hanging from my headboard.  I wasn't able to rig up the FX to do that and am a bit concerned about the Brevida.

Guess if the merchant has a 30 day guarantee, I can find out.

Thanks also, to all the gentlemen who've written such wonderful, comprehensive reviews.  I love this group!

I have been using the  Breveida for the past month.  I love this mask.  It is so comfortable and seals great.  I did not have this success with the p10.  My leak rate is very low and you are not even aware of the pillows.  If you are having problems using a nasal pillow mask I strongly recommend trying this mask.
