If you get the DreamWear...some people have complained about the long hose attaching at the top making things pull on the mask...there is a really nice short hose available that would remedy that situation if it comes up.
It can be use with any mask that you might want a bit more length or flexibility.https://www.cpap.com/productpage/circad ... -tube.html
There are many different ways to manage the hose...DIY to store bought.
Some fancy and some very basic but get the job done.
I have never used the Eson...I don't like anything going across the bridge of my nose.
I have used or tried just about every nasal pillow mask out there.
All have pros and cons and a pro for one person might be a con for another.
Some masks that I found that I liked well enough to use for a period of time...as opposed to a mask that doesn't make it through the night with me.
ResMed P10...current mask...love the vent and the nothingness of the headgear. Short hose is very flexible and lightweight...don't miss the swivel and in fact never noticed its absence until someone mentioned it.
Respironics DreamWear Gel Pillows...liked it well enough to invest 3 or 4 months with it. My only real gripe with it is the fact that I think I might like an XSmall pillow and they don't make one. Not sure but I would like to at least try it.
I did find that my impression of the stability of the mask improved a lot when I got the Small frame. I don't think I would have continued the trial very long if I hadn't got the small frame.
Respironics DreamWear cushion (under the nose thing)...this was my first DreamWear to try (the gel pillows were only released last April) and I thought it was okay but didn't fall in love with it. Should have made the effort to get the small frame. I might have liked it better if it didn't slide around so much.
The DreamWear cushion and nasal pillows will fit on the one frame...so if you get one you can order just the nose piece thing and use the one frame...save some money and let you try 2 types of masks. Check with me privately before buying...I might have a cushion or pillow...someone is sending a box of unwanted masks and there might be something in it. I know I have a DreamWear cushion of some size right now...but it might be a large which probably wouldn't work if you are a small to medium woman unless you have a really big nose.
ResMed Swift FX nasal pillows...the pillows are very similar to the P10 pillows but the head gear is different. Headgear is probably a little more stable than the P10 and the venting is a bit noisier. Not horribly noisy but compared to the silent P10...noisier.
The ResMed Swift FX Nano...a nasal cushion that goes over the nose similar to the way the Eson went over the nose but with much less material. The headgear for the Swift FX will also work with the Nano cushion.
All the above are masks that I would recommend to a newbie. Easy to use and maintain a good seal.
As to what you might finally prefer...that's where all this stuff comes with a big YMMV sticker. You just have to try something to know if you like it or not. With time and experience you will learn what your own preferences and needs are but it takes time.
Like I learned I don't like anything on the bridge of the nose or weighing down on that area. For that reason I don't even consider those types of masks when I look at something to see if I want to try it.
I have been on cpap 8 plus years now. Tried so many masks that I long ago lost count. I tried them not because I was unhappy with my mask at the time....but because I wanted to experiment and learn about the other masks out there. I always learn something ..even if it is only how much I hate it.
Most of the time with the nasal pillow masks I learned that I could successfully use many of the choices but then my own personal preferences comes into play. All things being equal my preference for as little on my face and head is going to put a mask that doesn't have much of a foot print to the top of my preference list....hence the P10 as my current mask.
I think that all those above also are fairly easy to find at the secondary market sites like Amazon or EBay since they are popular.
Less popular masks might be a bit harder to find a good cheap price (compared to retail online pricing or DME pricing).
Whatever you decide to get...check with me as to what I might have that might make it so you have 2 masks to try just by adding a different nose piece of some sort. I have some new unused Swift FX nasal pillows...and I think a cushion for the Nano but I don't remember size. I might have a DreamWear nasal piece of some sort too. Like if you get the DreamWear cushion I might have a nasal pillow for it.
If you like as little on your face and head as possible...do move the P10 to the top of the list to try at some point.
