Have you thought to try this
Phillips Respironics Dreamwear CPAP Nasal Mask
It is what I use - and replacement parts can be bought on Amazon easily.
I have a big head but found that the Medium worked for me.
and ... you can replace the nasal section for $10 to12! and you get that part on Amazon. I use a Medium (the nasal piece is sized)
I buy replacement parts when they wear out - piecemeal - and find that works great - for me.
The intake being on top of the harness is almost as much a reason for its comfort as the softness of the part under the nose.
You are not fighting the hose when you are wearing this product. It is 'overhead'
I used to use the pillows but then was offered a trial of this and I never looked back
Philips Respironics DreamWear Nasal Cushion (Medium Wide)
I put my unit in the sun on our sun-porch for the day and that seemed to work.
The Alliance of Sleep Apnea Partners (ASAP) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit founded in 2018 by a multi-stakeholder group of patients, researchers and healthcare providers. ASAP is an affiliate partner of the Sleep Apnea Patient-Centered Outcomes Network (MyApnea.Org), a PCORI-affiliated program and a virtual community of over 20,000 patients.
As a patient-led group, we are aware of the multiple knowledge and resource gaps patients with Sleep Apnea face.
In response, we have developed
