ResMed Swift LT:
The ResMed Swift LT CPAP mask, or Swift LT, is a fairly nice nasal pillow interface.
The headgear on the Swift LT is somewhat of a problem. It’s easy to get on and off like all other nasal pillow masks, but the straps are thin. These thin straps mean that have deep marks imprinted on your skin in the morning. There is another piece of the headgear that is supposed to cradle the cheeks for more support, but when tightened on some people it also digs into the skin and causes a mark that takes hours to go away.
One more negative about the headgear is that it seems to fray easily with what we consider normal washing. One wash per week and it frayed after 3-4 months. For cleaning, the headgear is easily removeable.
One nice feature is that the nasal pillows sit on a platform that rotates with a type of ratchet that will keep the nasal pillows at your prefered angle to enter into the nose. The silicone is high quality and durable.
The exhalation port is very quiet.
All sizes are included with this mask, so no need to guess what your size is. The nasal pillows are a little too round for guaranteed comfort.
Our stance: Good choice for a nasal pillow mask. May want to try the newer Swift FX if you want to stick with the great ResMed name.
Overall we don’t like nasal pillow masks because they seem have quite a few problems that go along with them. Easy to take off while asleep and tendency to get nose bleeds seem to be common problems with nasal pillow CPAP masks.
