Nasal pillow mask for high pressure.
by Bob Rogers
I currently have a Resmed full face mask and my pressure is 15 Cm Water and I can't get the mask to seal properly and can't get to sleep after 5 months of trying.
I am considering a nasal pillow mask but you warn of high pressures with these masks. In your reviews you mention patients with pressure of 18 & 20 experiencing success with the Optiflex mask but recomend the Opus 360 as the most comfortable mask. I am inclined to the Opus 360 due to your statement of it's light weight but wonder if it will perform as well at 15 as the Optiflex. Is this more an issue of the patients ability to adjust to the high pressure in the nasal passages or does the Optiflex actually perform better.
