[Product Review] Fisher and Paykel Solo
#1
Fisher and Paykel Solo
Just a quick review of the new F&P Solo mask.  I have been waiting for this mask to come out due to the unique headgear.  I hate it when my headgear stretches and I need to adjust the strap. My current mask is the F&P Brevida.  I'm not sure why the Solo is only offered in the nasal cushion at this time?  If I had an option, I would have gotten the pillows.  Anyway, I got the Solo cradle mask with a medium cushion from my DME.  
Overall the fit and comfort of the mask is great.  My only gripe is the noise of the mask.  It is probably one of the loudest masks that I have used.  The exhalation ports are in a horrible area and if you are on your side or do anything to deflect the air when you are at your full pressure, I have found it will wake you up.  I tried a hack online, where I used a filter from my AirSense machine to try to defuse or muffle the air from the exhalation ports and it really didn't work.  Still woke up due to the rush of air.  If the pillows are ever offered I might give the mask a redo, but last night I switched back to my Brevida.  It is a much quieter mask.  My only gripe with the Brevida, is the swivel, and when the exhalation port end up in a down position, facing my body. 
For those you want to try the solo, I would recommend waiting until they release the pillows in the US.  
For now I am going to call my DME and switch back to the Brevida.  Hopefully they will let me trade the mask and cushions since I am within my 30 days.
