ResMed Swift FX Replacement Pillow Cushion How often
I have been using a ResMed Swift FX for 3 years. I use it for 4 days then switch to a nasal mask for 4 days. In all this time I have never replaced pillows . How often do you replace them.
TIA

Well, I'm quite amazed your pillows have lasted that long. Most people are replacing them after a few months due to increasing leaks. If they are clean and you aren't getting any significant leaks, I see no reason why you need to replace them. Just have a backup or two and you are set.

I just bought a set of pillows in medium as the set I've been using for almost a year was large, too large. In the past I've changed out no more than yearly, sometimes two or three years before changing, can't say that I'd noticed any diminished performance. Cost me $19 on line.
