I hate the Respironics Comfort Gel flaps!
(Fort Payne, AL)
I've been using a Bi-Pap for many years and always bought the Respironics ComfortGel Mask. It was a simple soft gel cushion that conformed to my face and I loved it.
Now the cushion for that mask has been replaced with a lighter (thinner) gel cushion and a flap that fits over it and holds it on. I hate flaps! In addition to the extra cost for the two separate pieces, the cushion itself has a ridge of plastic or silicone (whatever) inside it that literally cuts into my skin. It's s so uncomfortable that I have to fold the lower part of the cushion under to direct that ridge away from my skin. This causes the mask to leak on the sides.
What a rip-off! Is there anywhere that I can get the original old style ComfortGel cushion or mask? If not, can someone recommend a mask that will work for me?
