RE: Respironics Nuance Pro
Jonne4c, if the air is not hitting anything (like the sheets) then take the mask back. Mine makes no noise at all.

As for the setting, just pick any nasal pillow. I doubt it makes a difference. The Nuance is rather new and I doubt they've updated it yet. You can check their information page for the mask or perhaps the paperwork that came with it to see if they say what to use.

For the hose, they always mean the main hose, never the mask hose. The mask's hose is usually smaller due to weight.

And as soon as I figure out how, I will merge this thread with the other Nuance review thread found here:

RE: Respironics Nuance Pro
I get that whistle noise every now and again when the mask isn't sealed. Move it around a bit and try turning the hose this should improve the seal and make the noise go away. I just got it a few days ago and I love it. Hope that helps.

He said the noise was coming from the elbow. But yeah, not being seated right will make all sorts of noise! And make the new dog bark. And sometimes the cat will swat your face.

I know this is going to sound stupid, I'm going to say it anyway though :Big Grin I saw it was from the elbow, and that is how mine whistles too through the elbow that is fixed in the nose part. The funny part is it whistles through the elbow when it isn't seated right under my nose. I don't know why it does this or how the airflow makes it whistle through the elbow but that is what it does. if I move the nose around and seat it better it stops whistling through the elbow. I know if I say don't ask me why, you'll ask me why, so I won't say it, but don't! Smile

Oookay. Now that's weird. I'll have to test mine and see! I wonder if the air direction changes just enough...and there's not much room for it to bounce around for a while first or anything...huh.

Thanks for clarifying!

But it is still weird. Bigwink

RE: Respironics Nuance Pro Mask Review
Yes it is quite funny, it seems there is a very tight fit in there and so that bend on the nose and the small pointed holes with 18 setting gets just right to start a whistle fest. The first time it happened I thought I was doing something wrong as it was almost a shrieking noise. Then I moved it a little and it snugged up and stopped. I must say though I really like this mask, the way it feels, the way it seals, and the way it lets me sleep. All around it is a great mask for me.

Try it out see if you can get yours to whistle dixie or some other merry tune, who knows if we make a video it might go viral LOL!

RE: Respironics Nuance Pro Mask Review
LOL I will!

And yes, I love this mask. When I first got it, I looked at it and said "not gonna work. going to leak like a sieve." But it doesn't. I was pleasantly surprised.

But I am not getting the Pro headgear again. That silicone is hot and has left marks on my face. Never had a mask that did that. Sure, the first hour or so, but not all day. We're going to cut up an old tshirt and wrap it to see if that helps. I have very sensitive skin. I think it is reacting to the heat of it. If it were summer, I'd be in trouble.

Really? You don't like the gel headgear? I love that headgear! That gel is so soft on my face, it feels so nice. I hated the way the cloth rubbed on me. I also like the way the gel seems to keep everything in place. Well that's why they didn't stop with vanilla and chocolate Big Grin As long as you're happy and I'm happy we can be happy together.

Further proof that you are very, very weird.
