Question Swift FX Nasal pillow: quick question
does it matter if the logo is up or down the instructions just say it should face out ? It seems that when the logo is under it is more comfortable and easier to breath than if it is on the top??

RE: Swift FX Nasal pillow: quick question
Thanks for posting this question and answer dfstarman. I was wondering the same thing, except I was using the size "S" as a reference and saw a photo on the ResMed site of a model wearing the mask and the size was on the left. I never saw the logo. So, I just checked my mask and sure enough - when the logo is "up", the "S" is on the left! I love how Hose Heads figure this stuff out and share their findings.

On which mask setting do you put the Nano?

Hi, Lukie,
I just checked the ResMed Swift FX Nano User's Manual and on page 8 under "Mask Settings Options" for the S9 it says to use the setting "pillows". I was kind of surprised at this answer - thinking it would be a "nasal mask", but what do I know? Just google "ResMedSwift FX Nano User's Manual" and look on page 8 to confirm.

I had already checked the mask manual and other manuals but I called them just to make sure and they explained that the space inside the Nano was similar to pillows thus the use of that setting.

Thanks. I had seen that page but wanted to hear it from the horses mouth and learn the reason why as well.
