A few people do seem to use them when I visit Papworth every year, though I'm not sure if they're still being made any more now.

Does anyone have a nasal pillow style mask & headgear they don't like or don't use? Mine vanished somewhere between Vancouver & Glasgow & I didn't notice till I got to Kirky. I have a spare one at home, but that's not helping me while I…See More
I'm hoping the next few nights will see me get my AHI down further, but i'm also keen not to put too much pressure on the situation.
I have to say i'm very impressed with the Hope2Sleep service so far, with regular updates…"
"Hi Andy. That's a good first night and sounding positive already. You may find your AHI comes down over the next few nights. Ideally we're looking for it to be up to 5 which is classed as 'normal.'
Your other goods will be…"
