The Respironics Wisp Nasal Mask
#61
Having said all that, it seems the mask cushion is not particularly durable. The elasticity seem to wear out quickly, and the cushions need to be replaced every 2 to 3 weeks to maintain a good seal. Not a problem if your insurance covers this, and mine will, after the 90 day compliance period. I went back to a Large last night after 2+ weeks on an XL size, and my AHI was WAY down. Nose is a little itchy today, tho. I still consider this mask my first choice.

I have used this mask for a year and a half and my cushions could last more than 2-3 weeks but for health reasons and sanitary reasons I change them every 2 weeks/twice per month. I don't need any more to deal with so I do it to protect my health. I really like this mask and it is my first choice also.

I'm getting 3 weeks out of my cushions and about 6 months out of the frames. I'm an active sleeper, though, and this mask really stays put well for me. My first choice for sure. Occasionally, it does cause a sore or a zit on the bridge of my nose, so I switch to the Nuance for a few days, and all is well. For me, this one is a great mask.

I'm back to the XL size cushion permanently, I think, and my AHI for the past year is now slightly under 1.00 according to SleepyHead. Not bad, coming from an untreated AHI of 67!

I've been switching between 2 nasal cushions since March this year. I boiled one and it was good for a week or so, thereafter it started leaking again. So I stopped using it and refrain from boiling the other (newer) one to see how far it goes. I still managed to use it with little leaks. Side-by-side, I note the unboiled cushion has a stronger more distinct nose shape. Not sure if it was originally like that but there is a difference.

Still using the same frame and head bands.

Pressure in the above chart didn't go past 10 H2O though. I have nights where it hits 12.5 H2O but still flat at those sections.
