I had to put bandaids on my nose bridge till the skin got tougher there.

I used the Mirage Quattro for about 6 months and was never happy with it. I'm under pretty high pressure and it didn't matter how tight I had the head gear, it always leaked badly and slid up into my mouth. Also, for some reason, I have a skin allergy to the cushion material. I tried several masks from the sleep lab and found that I love the Fisher Paykel Flex Fit 432. It fits under your chin and it's a whole lot more comfortable. I'd suggest sitting down with your supplier and trying several masks until you find the one that works for you.

See customer reviews ... Supplier #1
Edit: Just repeating ... for machines, masks, etc.. check Supplier #2 and Supplier #10
Both ship to Australia
USD$16 from Supplier #2 on Supplier List.
They can be reused for 2 to 3 months. Can wash them with mild (hand) soap to keep free from face oil. Keep them in a glass container or in the re-usable plastic container you buy them in, but not in any other plastic container.
Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.
