    NIV masks: comfort at last?

    I've started a new thread in case those who've already seen http://forum.mndassociation.org/show...on-using-a-NIV
    don't go back to it and miss this report.

    Fact is I've persevered with my new nostril-only ResMed Mirage Swift mask to the point where I wear it by choice overnight and by choice during the day. Why? Lightest in weight, best air seal, greatest comfort, chance to talk without removing mask (a speech therapist told me to speak in phrases, timed to match my breaths out - makes sense, no? - persevere, it grows on you!), no more skin injury, chance to nibble a bun/chocolate, sip a drink, answer wife back. What more could you ask?

    Of course, it won't suit everyone as well as it suits me. But why not ask your respiratory nurse for a loan of one,try it for two weeks and see for yourself?

    Good luck.
