Thoughts on nomask
#1
Just heard a commercial on [commercial website address removed - instead, do a Google search for "nomask"]. Has anyone ever tried this mask and if so how does it compare to P10 and the Sleepweaver mask?
Thanks!!

Lacking a money back guarantee, I rate it as a marketing scam. It will have the same problem that other nasal masks have, mouth leaks. In addition, you will be holding part of the device inside your mouth all night, which is less than pleasant. You may also need a chin strap, according to the FAQ's about it.

If you don't dig too deeply, it sounds too good to be true and most likely is just that.

Judy, your profile shows you use a full face mask. If you have serious mouth leaks, the nomask may not be an ideal solution. There is a good review on UTube if you look for UadTx1q46-s. If you can tolerate nasal pillows, get them. You'll love it. If not, and you want something like this nomask, try a Hybrid CPAP Mask like the Resmed Mirage Liberty, or the Innoed Hybrid which costs half as much.

This name traces back to a DME in California. They are selling the mask in parts to avoid a prescription. I've noticed TV ads for this device and several other CPAP items lately. My only opinion would be that of skepticism. . . proceed your own risk.

The actual device name is CPAP-Pro, and the site claims it is FDA cleared. NoMask is just a marketing term and commercial DME web site and the reference n the first post will probably get moderated.

Researching the FDA registration, I found CPAP/PRO is a nasal pillow device that is held in place by custom or boil and bite appliance. It may also attach to a mandibular repositioning appliance. Approval: Approved for both snoring and OSA Date of FDA Approval: Dec. 1, 1999 FDA Registration Number: K992384. The 510k registration is at this link:
http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/cdrh_docs/pdf/k992384.pdf

So the surprise is the device has a different name than suggested in this thread, and it has apparently been around since 1999, or for the last 17 years! This looks like putting lipstick on a pig and marketing an old product that failed so badly it completely disappeared from the market.
