Thumbsup Swift FX Nano
I tried the Swfit FX Nano last night for the first time, and was pleasantly surprised. Going to a new mask always creates challenges and I had done a lot of reading on this mask. Keep you all posted, but hoping to stay with the Nano. No great difficulties or leaks, small footprint. Combines the pillows and nasal into one nice package.

Am I correct that my S9 Auto setting should be to "pillows" and not "nasal"?

Great forum guys, always helps us out.

Thanks.

RE: Swift FX Nano
I didn't know the nano had pillows as well as the nasal. I looked at it in the package but I guess I didn't see the pillows or I forgot they had pillows. That was last week; I do good to remember a few hours ago lol

hope this mask is successful for you.

Yes, according to mask setting guide

Take what you read with pinch of salt and evaluate on your own, don't take it for being the truth or correct

I learn something new all the time about this CPAP stuff. I never have been told that a nasal mask might need to be set as pillows!

Thanks Zonk!

RE: Swift FX Nano
I have the Swift FX Nano. It does not have pillows and is not a hybrid from what I can see. It has a cup just like my other nasal mask but less headgear. The manual says to choose "pillows" instead of "nasal" but not sure why.

RE: Swift FX Nano
I think maybe they come packaged in more than one configuration. I just got mine a few weeks ago. It came with both, nasal pillow and what i suppose is called a nasal mask. I tried the one the covers the nose but it leaked...maybe i didn't give it enough of a trial. I love the nasal pillow arrangement. I have having the best results ever with this setup.

RE: Swift FX Nano
I still have the package and it did not have nasal pillows. It is the standard mask. I looked it up on one of the dealer sites and did not see the option for a cushion and pillows. I don't even see pillows available on the ResMed site. You sure it's a Nano?

My package says Swift FX Nano Nasal Mask.

A label on the package says Swift FX Nano Std Mask Sys - Am / Size: STANDARD / Contains 62238-Headgear, 62220-Frame Sys STD, 62230-Cushion STD.

RE: Swift FX Nano
Darn I threw away the package. Sorry. I now wonder if my DME threw the pillows in extra. You can buy the Swift nasal pillows on ebay. I bought a spare for $4.50 plus $2.50 shipping.

The Swift FX has the pillows. The Swift FX Nano has the cushion.

It looks like you can switch between them using the same hose and headgear but I do not see them sold together in the same package.
