"If it works for you use it. They are a bit quieter I am told so on its own will help, but comfort is the name of the game and if it fits the bill........ Glad you found a mask that works for you."

New full face mask

Hi, I’ve been using the ResMed mirage Quattro since I was as diagnosed5 years ago. I’ve always hated it and found it so uncomfortable. Last week I bought myself a ResMed  airfit F20 with quiet air and it’s the best thing ever. Nothing covering my eyes , much quieter and the mask rarely moves. I feel that I’ve had the best sleep this past week than I’ve had since I was diagnosed. Just wanted to share and tell you how great I think it is. And no, I don’t work for ResMed! Thanks, CathySee More

Hi, I was diagnosed with chronic obstructive sleep apnoea and got a cpap machine a year ago after a few years exhaustion , depression and falling asleep all the time. It was so bad, falling asleep in the middle if conversations, at work at my desk, if I sat down with a student, I'm sure you all know how it feels. I was extremely embarrassed and upset by the thus and eventually a doctor at my practice referred me to hospital. I was terrified to find out that I stopped breathing about 100 times…See More

"Definitely nothing inside the humidifier chamber except plain water.  Olbas Oil on a tissue or Vicks as Eric states, and there's a more detailed article on the website here https://www.hope2sleep.co.uk/blog/cpap-masks-with-a-cold.html"
