So I'm a new CPAP user and have been struggling for weeks to find the right mask. The vendors here seem really fixated on the Fishel & Paykel Simplus mask, but it's not working for me. I've also tried the Amara View mask. The Amara View is the better of the two and I really like the lightweight design, but both put pressure points on my cheekbones so it takes forever for me to fall asleep and sometimes I just give up. I'm a small in both.
I've got an old Mirage Liberty as well which someone gave me. It's falling apart, but the design is better in that it doesn't put pressure on my cheekbones so I can fall asleep faster. The part that contacts my face touches just below my cheekbones, rather than right on it, which is good. The issue with the Mirage is sometimes the nose pillows pop out and they also tend to collect water.
I've tried a nasal mask as well, but keep opening my mouth. I can breathe through my nose, but not exclusively. It feels like I'm not getting enough air.
So what I want is a full face mask that is something between an Amara View and a Mirage Liberty. I'm wondering if there is such a thing? I'm pretty frustrated with the vendors here. They seem reluctant to try new masks. I'm 100% willing to be compliant, but I just need the right mask.
