THE Answer when you're allergic to Latex
Written By: MJB, Ottawa, Canada 8/7/2017
The Sleepweaver Elan mask is what allows me to use a CPAP at all. I am allergic to latex and the rigid mask made me claustrophic and marked my face. The Sleepweaver Elan is light soft and small, made of material like sportcloth. I take a very large hat size, and have a large nose for a woman, and the Regular fits me just fine. It *is* quite hard to learn to use so that it does not leak The video and leaflet help, but so does patience. The method that works best for me is to lie on my back (I sleep with my head propped up a bit) during the ramp period (10 minutes), supporting the featherweight* connecting tube with a couple of fingers so that the weight of the tube does not distort the not yet fully inflated mask. If you get a good seal to start off the night, you are usually leak free. (*you have to use a short light tube between the mask and the regular tubing). This said, the best way to correct a leak is to slightly and very briefly lift the mask either at the place of the leak, or opposite it. this allows you to slightly reposition the mask and get a better seal. The mask pressure compensates for the leak temporarily, which also helps. I am sensitive to the rhythym and pressure of the CPAP even with this mask. The pressure across my face resonates down my back and can make my low back ache. When this happens and I start to toss and turn (this mask is leaks if you toss and turn) I get up for a couple of minutes and take an over the counter muscle relaxant if I need to. Regular chiropractic care is also helpful. The back issues would happen for me regardless; they are not mask related. Just to note that you do learn how to turn over without really waking up, supporting the tube and not brushing your head against the pillow (which tends to shift the harness and cause a leak). If you have sleep apnea and make the commitment to use a CPAP and cannot use a hard mask, the Elan is the mask for you. Stick with it and sleep becomes a beautiful thing again.
BEST MASK EVER

Every respiratory professional that sees my mom in this mask can't believe how fabulous it is! We have no problem with the leak...if anything, we have to adjust to make sure there is ENOUGH of a leak. so soft on skin. Love, love love it

I purchased this recently and could not get it to stop leaking air. I tried it loose as suggested, leaked. I tried it tighter, leaked. Although it is comfortable to wear I just could not use it.

Great fit, super comfortable. I love the fact that I dont have rubber tubes in my nose, and its machine washable.

Who was this designed for?
Written By: George V, Skokie 12/7/2016
Who on earth was this designed for? Worst fitting mask I've EVER tried -- and I normally use a sleepweaver advance, so it's not as though I'm unfamiliar with the technology! Seriously, I bought all three nose pillow sizes -- regular, extra large, and "THAT'S a nose!??" small. With the advance you stick it on your face, you stick your nose in the hole, and away you go. With the elan... first off even with the huge cushion on it the nose hole is way too small. Can't even get the tip of my nose through it, let alone the whole thing like the advance. Secondly, since I can't get my nose through it, it feels like it's trying to inflate backwards towards my face, in an attempt to shove air up through my nose. I guess that's really the point, but it makes for an impossibly bad fit, and I just don't see how this was ever supposed to work, nor for whom. (I wear a normal size advance mask, so it's not as though I have some huge honker with a big bulbous end!) Just mystified how this fits anyone at all.
Not for small faces

I LOVE Sleepweaver soft cloth nasal mask, but got this to try so I would have even fewer straps on my head. It did not work for me at all. It felt too big on me as I turned, it leaked, and I ended up tossing it on the floor in the middle of the night. A friend who tried the same mask felt like the hard plastic tubing in the front was pressing too hard on the end of your nose. Some might like it, but I'm going back to the one I know works for me.
Sleepweaver cloth CPAP mask
Written By: Texan, MO 9/14/2016
I ahve used ths mask for 5 months now and I love it. It is the most comfortable mask I ahve ever used and I hvae been using a CPAP for 23 years. I would suggest getting getting a larger size than you think. The normal mask I used was a medium/small so I purchased a medium/regular size mask. My wife had to do some trimming on it because it covered about 1/2 of my nostrils. I will buy this mask again, but I will get the large size.
Can not sleep worth a darn without it

After giving up on my Bi-pap from unconfrotable and terrible nights of sleep, I purchased the kit with all 3, the Regular fits perfect and this mask is GREAT, I will not even try to sleep without, I have fallen asleep without it on and have woken up and put it on during the middle of the night and gone right back to sleep, my rubber mask I could never do that.. After about 3 to 4 months do have to replace the mask as it seems to stretch and then you will notice it starting to leak are around your upper lip, but that is a small price for its comfort....Love this product and just order another mask with the head gear and 3 more of just the mask....
