Jane, my wife has a new Fisher Paykel Simplus Full Face Mask....she has sleep apnea and paralysed Diaphragms.....She has an inset bridge to her nose, and the mask rises up during the night...had she an European Bridge...this would not happen....has anyone else come across this problem......she has been using different masks for about 5 - 6 years and all seem to have similar problems....they say a bad workman blames his tools, but this is not the case with us.

It could very well be the tools in this case. Has she ever tried a Hybrid mask like the Hybrid (I think it's owned by Carefusion or RespCare...keeps changing) or the ResMed Mirage Liberty.

These are full face masks that have nasal pillows. This takes the bridge of the nose out of the equation entirely, so it may fit better.

Another you can try is the FitLife. It avoids the bridge of the nose too, but with a different approach.

My 6 year old grandson stayed with us overnight and came into our room and took one look at me in my full face mask and said "Coool Meemaw! You look like Darth Vader!"

Just kidding. That's a cute story.

Ha! One of my Facebook friends wanted me to post a video of myself in my mask saying, "Luke, I am your father." So I did. I don't think he was super impressed, since I wore my (very non-Vaderish) Dreamwear mask to do it. :lol:

Various members of my family use CPAP therapy, so there wasn't any issue there. My Ex-Girldfriend however, was self-conscious before I got my mahcine. All I asked her to do was use it like she was prescribed to do. then when I got mine, all that changed. Universal acceptance for the win!

I'm single now, but most of my friends are science geeks so they are all sort of curious as to how it works! I just point them towards your videos!

Oh the videos are great! After watching some of the mask videos I decided I was going to insist on a soft silicone one, but lucky me the RT had the same plan and I got an AirFit. :)

I've got the Simplus. Works pretty well. I'll probably buy a couple different FFM's just to try out.

Jason: I am having limited success with the masks I have tried so far. I have looked at the FitLife, and would wear it if it means no-leak-sleep

Did you take down your video review of this mask? Or did it drop off by mistake? I would like to watch your review of the mask if it is still available.

Anyone reading this have experience with the FitLife?

My mouth falls open, so I need a full face mask. I have a Jimmy-Durante nose, and a Jay Leno chin. Really struggling to find a mask I can just put on and sleep.

Thanks

I think you already got the proper link to this....right? :)

Let me know if not. This may have been the link to my older site before I revamped it.

Yes, I did get the correct link. For anyone reading this who is looking for Jason's review of the FitLife it is at

http://freecpapadvice.com/fitlife

The mask is currently available online for $119 and has free return insurance from one of the websites.

I think that being a geek helps with cpap acceptance. In our fantasies we can be the bionic woman, a firefighter, a jet pilot, or a scuba diver. Using Sleepyhead, we can geek out over the computer. It can be fun.
