Which mask would you recommend?

Post by 1speechpick » Mon Jun 28, 2021 1:42 pm

Would you recommend the Resmed N20 nasal mask or the Mirage FX nasal mask?

One of the major struggles with cpap usage is finding a mask that is comfortable and doesn't leak. It's like saying what kind of shoes you like. You get a hundred different answers. If a person has any success with using cpap, they better say they love their mask. I've got a son-in-law that is a Podiatrist. He wears New Balance tennis shoes, but swears that Asics are a better tennis shoe. His preference is New Balance. You'd be better off going to cpap.com and seeing what are the popular masks.

Wow, I Just gave out a a secret. Ok, five bucks from everyone that goes out and buys a Asics or New Balance.

I like the N20. The "for her" or small size fits my face better than the other masks I tried.

There are so many things involved with a mask. First, how well it seals *for you*, then the comfort and fit of the straps, whether it blows the exhaust air in your face, and how quiet it is. I have tried some that I loved everything about them but they made so much noise I couldn't live with it, or the shape of the pillows just wouldn't seal with the shape of my nose. You really have to try them to know for sure which is the best choice for you. A good strategy is to try the most popular masks -there's a reason so many people like them- but always get the mask insurance so if it doesn't work for you, you can return it.
