This is the only mask I have used during the 14 years I've used a CPAP. I'm really hoping they don't stop making them. I don't wear any head gear at all, just the tube and a small strip of velcro across the back to hold it on.
Wasteful in part and my last two had problems with the plastic connections
Written By: Lucy C , Pittsburgh 9/14/2015
The packaging of 6 different size Nasal prong sizes is wasteful and expensive. As for the connection I had 2 that kept popping apart while I was sleeping. It was past the warranty. My loss. I have been told that this mask delivery method is old and I suspect it may have suffered from drying in the connection.
Best alternative to face masks.

I can't wear the traditional face masks but found the Nasal-Aire CPAP nasal cannula the best alternative. The soft nose piece seals the nostrils completely and the tubing is soft and flexible. I use only one strap around the back to hold the two tubes in place and I'm good to go every night. I'm a side sleeper and have not had any problems with the Nasal-Aire coming off during the night. The only suggestion I would have would be to make the tubing of the cannula longer and available as a separate replacement piece. The Nasal-Aire nasal cannula seems to be a bit on the big side so be aware of that when you choose a size.
Headgear and tubing

I have used the mask and had a hard time with it. Though would try this nasal cannula. First of all the headgear is a disaster for a side sleeper. The pressure points make it almost impossible to sleep without feeling like your head and ears are in contact with a golf ball. They make it worse by needing to be a strap engineer to put it together which you do after each use. The noise is twice as loud as other mask I have used over the years. That alone keeps one from sleeping well. The hose is another story. it is to large and stiff. Where the head touches the pillow again as with the headgear you feel every pressure point. I started out with it for several days and within an hour, went back to my old mask. Might be a good item if they would get it together and do a headgear and tubing system that doesn't make your head feel like it is laying on golf or bowling balls at pressure points.

Been using this for several years. Best way I've found to use cpap.
Nasal aire II
Written By: F.D., Boston 3/4/2015
I'm reading these reviews and I can't believe they are talking about the same product. I've used Nasal aire II off and on for 6 or 6 years and I always go back to it. It has the best feel for all night sleep of all the masks I've tried. after 3 or 4 hours I usually give up on pillows or small masks because my average pressure for 90% of the night is 18. I just fasten it behind my head. This is a great mask.

I like the cannula part of the mask. I do not like masks that come across the bridge of my nose and I have had a hard time getting a pillow type mask to get a good seal and deliver air. The nasal aire II has two main issues. The tubing is too bulky and too stiff. Also the vent ports need diffusers on them. The headgear needs a way of attaching directly to the cannula part. I hope development continues on this style mask.

Hard to get cannula to rest comfortably as well.
Written By: Suzanne S, Florida 11/7/2014
I found the nasal aire to be very comfortable to wear. However, there is absolutely no diffusion for the air. My husband would never get his sleep because of this product. I'm very surprised that this mask would be popular at all. I will be returning the mask the first chance I get.

I thought a mask resembling a nasal cannula would be terrific but it was probably one of the worst mask I've purchased so far. I tried it for 3 nights, pulling it off each night after only a few hours. The major problem is how loud it is (air released from the tube). The tubing is also just too large to try and mimic a nasal cannula.
