Amara Face Mask
Written By: Mike S, Mt. Top, PA 5/6/2016
I am new to using a CPAP device. My medical supplier provided me with a Res Med Quarto Air size large mask. I tried it for the first couple nights and felt there were something better. I have a dream station unit and figured I would try the Arama. The gel mask did not fit very good. The silicone mask so far is working great. I do like the multiple adjustment options the Amara gives you verses the Res Med, however the Res Med mask is much lighter. I will keep both and alternate as needed.
Silicon insert for Amara Full Face CPAP mask
Written By: JWM, Gainesville, GA 12/31/2015
The Amara full face CPAP mask comes in two parts, three if you count the head gear. After a year of constant use and cleanings the silicon seal separated from its hard plastic shell. The beauty of this mask is the ability to replace the silicon seal part separately without buying the entire three piece package. (Although the three piece set is offered for anyone needing them.) I have not used other makes of this mask therefore, I can not make an honest comparison to other brands but had very good experience with Amara's for over a year's use.
Not for me

I had big hopes that this was going to be comfortable and the answer to my mask quest. This one is not for me- might be OK for you. I had mask leaks and the mask made all kinds of "plastic- squeaky" noises whenever I moved. Part of the problem might have been I ordered too large a mask based upon the mask I had before. The "gel" was not what I thought it was going to be. It is more like a light plastic type stuff, a "spongy-wiggly rubbery thingy" is best I can describe it. Also had an issue with it eating the bridge of my nose up. I would be leery about trying another smaller one as it was not a positive experience.
Amara means amore

Love it. Used nasal for years. Sinus made that a problem. Used Comfort Gel full, didn't seal well around nose bridge and actually cut my nose. (I have a jutting forehead and just couldn't adjust nose tight enough. The Amara fits fantastic. Plenty of adjustment and very comfortable seal. Kudos to Respironics on this one.

I have been using CPAP for about a year and tried several different methods including different sizes of nasal pillows, a couple of nose masks and now the Amara Full Face Mask. The nasal pillows were ineffective for me; I think side-sleeping dislodges them. I am not a mouth breather but the nose mask would occasionally block my breathing when it slid up on my face so despite the expense I tried the Amara mask and I'm really glad I did. Not only did it solve my problem but you also get what you pay for in this case because it has several features that I really like. One is a valve in the mask that allows you to breath easily even when the CPAP is off and a quick release for the hose so you can leave the mask on when you slumber to the bathroom and back. Also, and this is the best feature, it has a fine adjustment so that once you get the mask on lightly you can fine tune how snug it is against your face. This feature really works very well for me. I also like the gel seal. With the nose masks I had to tighten them a lot to get a seal but this mask seals with light pressure. With my nose mask I had a lot of trouble with condensation and very little or no trouble with condensation in this Amara mask...I'm not sure why this is, it might have a better vent. I hope this helps, as an aside, since I started CPAP my un-medicated blood pressure has gone from about 156/92 to 128/70, my heart palpitations are greatly diminished and I am so much happier. Good luck! rob
I like it!

I've worn a ComfortFull II, size Large for the past 6 years. It did the job, but I was never 100% happy with it. The forehead pad support/adjusting mechanism was poorly designed, it was loud, and it had a tendency to leak above the corners of my mouth unless the strap was adjusted a little on the too-tight side. I tried at least 5 other different masks, none of which worked for even one night. I tried an Amara. It seals better, the headgear doesn't have to be so tight, the seal/cushion is easily removable for cleaning, the forehead support adjustment mechanism works very well, and my wife says it is much quieter. I think I found a new favorite mask.
