Any preferences between Respironics nasal wisp vs resmed nano?

I liked the Wisp, but only with the clear front frame,
as it held most of the pressure off the sensitive parts of my face.
I wore the Swift Fx a year or more, but could not STAND the Nano.
Too much pressure around my nose.
Five minutes, and that bad idea was going right back!

I tried the Wisp. Slept with it for all of 90 minutes which were highly fragmented at that...I finally got tired of being woke up with the nasal congestion and having to pull the mask away from the nose to breathe.
So I put the nasal pillow back on...and thought for sure that I had lasted almost the entire night with the Wisp (sure felt like eons) and was surprised to see on the report where the machine was turned off showed I only lasted 90 minutes before I took it off.

So obviously I didn't do well with the Wisp. Something about the placement of the cushion caused nasal congestion from pressure on the nose and no....I didn't have it very snug at all.

So I saw the Nano and pretty much had made up my mind that it would likely cause the nose congestion like the Wisp because they are very similar masks.
But I did try the Nano and actually had no problems with congestion with it. It's similar to the Wisp but not the same.
I actually was able to successfully use the Nano all night and for several nights as I did some various experiments with the Nano headgear...even used it with the Bella Loops.

So it just goes to show you that you have to try something to know for sure how it will work or not.

On the Wisp, the front frame makes all the difference. For me, the fabric frame was completely worthless, while the silicone frame was awesome. Your mileage may vary.
