CPAP can be an expensive condition.  I have always bought masks out of pocket.  Insurance gives me a new mask every three months and a new cushion ever month, but that has never been enough.  Last month a got my new mask- a Wisp- and this month needed a FFM some nights.  That was $176 out of pocket.  There are so many small incidental expenses.  Distilled water, chin straps, mask liners,  silicone for mask leaks.

I trialed a Nano, but didn't like it.  I was having trouble with my Wisp then, too, so I was probably too restless to keep the mask seated.

Thanks, Ginny. Hopefully it will be useful to someone.

What didn't you like about the Nano?

I liked the way it fit over the nose but the headgear was not comfy for me.  It's always something!!!!  It did not seem to stay in place well for me.  We have lots of income tax deductions, don't we??   I can get  a new mask every three, but two cushions a month. Well, 11/21 is getting closer.  I may be having these procedures for nothing but I feel like I have to give it a shot. At least I won't wonder if it might have helped.

I used the NANO last night and liked it!  Strange how one night differs from another!

It is good that you like it. I found that the wisp does not last very long at all and when it gets older I feel like I can not breath when I use it.

Still "liking" the Nana.  (as much as one can like CPAP!)   Called Lincare over a week ago and ordered my monthly two cushions.  Today I called to see if had been shipped as usually gets here quickly.  Customer service tells me today, "Oh, we don't even carry them… you will have to call your local Lincare office."   What great customer service…NOT!   Leave 1/8 for 3rd procedure in Statesboro GA.  

I'm glad it's working, Ginny.  I have a Wisp that is lasting a long time now.  It's funny how the longevity varies.  Good luck with your procedure.
