Out of two full face mask and four pillow mask this is the only mask that I have found works for me. Slept 8 hours for the first time, no leaks, no events, id just does not get any better than this. Thank you so much!
100% mask fit

I need a chin strap, but this is the best full face hybrid I have used Very low AHI, under .5 and usually above 98% mask fit.
Got me through

Facial injury prevented me from wearing full face Mirage mask for several weeks. This let me sleep through the nights although it wasn't good rest - was always exhausted and irritable. No problem with headgear. Size was fine but frame just didn't fit well. Performance seemed to degrade rather quickly over a few weeks. Anyway, got back to Mirage mask and started getting much better rest. I think this might work better on a flatter/square type face bone structure.
Great mask, awful headband

Great mask but the headband makes it unusable. What idiot designed the buckle to sit over the left side of your head. Sleep on your left side and first you get a dent. Next the buckle causes an abrasion and finally it gets infected. Left side sleepers avoid this at all costs.
Great mask type for a great price

Recently got a resmed air fit f10. Worked well but would not fit my odd nose shape, so resp therapist showed me an Amara View. It worked fantastic, however i got a cushion that was too small. I tried ordering one on line, one size bigger. I stumbled across Directhomemedical.com and found them they have great prices here for good quality parts!
Most comfortable mask yet
Written By: RLeonard, Kentucy 2/7/2016
This mask is more comfortable than my nasal masks and because it covers my mouth also, I never have to worry about my allergies or nose congestion again. When that happens with a nasal mask you end up with a terrible night of leaks and poor therapy. I have only used this mask 2 nights but, 2 nights in a row with and AHI below 1 and absolutely no leaks whatsoever...zero, nada, nein, none! I will never go back to my nasal masks. You really need to take a serious look at this innovation from Resperonics.
Best full face CPAP mask
Written By: Johanne, MD 11/14/2015
I have been using a CPAP for many years, first with a nasal mask, then had UPPP surgery and then had to go to a full face mask. My main problem with the couple of full face masks I tried over the years was air in my eyes causing dry eyes and air leaks. The Amara View Full Face mask is great in that it covers the smallest area of the face of all so is not near my eyes. Also rarely have air leaks and easily adjusted when I do.

I wanted you to know that I absolutely LOVE the Amara View Full Face CPAP mask ... I can use my glasses, my husband said it is less noisy and he can hear me when I talk ... it is so very comfortable and so very light on my face. I somehow found a website that showed this new mask and at once knew that I wanted to try and see if it would help me sleep better at night. I was so happy to see that Direct Home Medical had this on their website.
My previous masks were silicone which broke out my face ... and then I was offered the comfort gel blue which was so much more comfortable. However, the whole mask and frame was heavy on my face, I couldn't wear my glasses, the air was noisy and my husband couldn't hear me talk, and I just couldn't get a good night's sleep.
I Had High Hopes, but It's Too Uncomfortable and Leaks
Written By: Patrick, Florida 9/22/2015
I had (and still do have) high hopes for this Amara View. But after two nights of trying, I am giving up for the time being. Maybe need the Large size, although the guide placed me in the middle of the Medium size. Thinking of trying the Large size insert.
There are several problems:
1. While I am sleeping, my ResMed VPAP machine suddenly raises the pressure, and blows out the seal with a large squeal, waking me. It has never done this with another mask, so I am not sure what is going on, but I suspect the mask starts to leak, and then the machine tries to compensate.
2. The mask around the mouth puts too much pressure on my face, even at the lowest position of the straps. It is uncomfortable, but I have been able to get to sleep, until the mask blows out as in number 1 above.
3. The straps don't seem to be long enough, and on me, there is no slack at the largest extension. (I know there is a larger head strap option, but I went with the Standard size.)
My normal mask is a GoLife with a full head chin strap. I can pretty well tolerate the nasal irritation, but my mouth comes open, even with the chin strap, and then I have dry mouth and I know I am not getting the best treatment.

I have been a CPAP user for over twelve years and have gone through my share of masks that I have tried. For the most part, some of the concepts have looked interesting, but the results have usually been disappointing. For most of the past seven years, my go-to mask has been the ResMed Mirage Liberty. But, when I decided to grow some facial hair (mustache and goatee) last year, that mask began to fail me. Since then, I have tried the ResMed AirFit F10, the F&P Simplus, and the Quattro FX, all resulting in excessive leaks and a "sad face" every morning on my new ResMed AirSense 10 Auto CPAP machine (wonderful product as well!!!). While I've only used the Amara View briefly, I have awakened every morning to a "smiley face" on my CPAP machine because I had a great seal. Even with facial hair, I get a great seal!!!!! This mask is soft, small, and I would recommend it to everyone that requires a full-face mask. I doubted the seal would be good on the innovative nose cushion, but my doubts have been laid to rest. OK, pun intended! :)
