Swift FX Nano vs Wisp
I've been using a Respironics Wisp for several months now, changed over from the F&P Pillairo.

I found the wisp much better, with very little leakage, and now I see a Resmed Swift FX Nano, which looks very similar


Has anyone tried both and can give me a comparison? Sadly I'm in a country where there is only 2 sleep Doctors, and since I have to buy all my masks from overseas, I have to be very careful on my selections so I don't waste the money.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Swift FX Nano vs Wisp
Have you looked through the review section to see if there's reviews of one or both? I know there is for the Wisp but not sure about the Nano.

Edit to add: a link would help, right?

RE: Swift FX Nano vs Wisp
I had been using the WISP & decided to try the Nano which I ended up returning. The Nano kind of touched or laid on the tip of my nose all night & was very irritating. It is like the silicone cup isn't quite deep enough & I don't have a particularly long or large nose. So I went back to the WISP which doesn't do this.

Me too, except for me they all leaked too much. I finally had a friend with a sewing machine and the knowledge to use it make me a custom chin strap that I place on top of the Wisp. I am happy to report that my leaks are, for the first time ever, finally very low (always under 10L).

However, for me nothing can come close to the comfort of the Pilairo. Starting tonight I am going to try it with my new chin strap on top to see if it still leaks as badly as it did before. I am hoping that the new custom chin strap will tame it like it does the Wisp.

And this morning when I dug out the Pilairo I noticed that one of the plastic clips on the elastic headband was broken. I took it to my DME (Norco) to see if I could get a replacement headband, and they insisted on giving me a whole brand new Pilairo. I kept telling them that it was more than the three month warranty, but in the end I walked out with a brand new Pilairo free of charge.
