"When I input my facial measurements, this is the mask that cpap.com recommended. I was thrilled to try another mask, because the only mask that worked for me in the past was the Respironics Comfort Gel - which is a great mask, but it breaks easily and quickly.
The Mirage Activa fit well, but the flaw I have found is that at higher air pressure settings, you can feel the rise and fall of the mask on your face. This is worse because my cpap machine is set to decrease air pressure on exhale, so it ends up feeling like a slow beating drum on my face as I inhale and exhale. I eventually fall asleep but this problem keeps me from falling asleep right away like I usually do.
I will continue to try and adjust the settings on my cpap to try and find a solution because I really do not want to go back to the Comfort Gel mask that broke so easily because of the poor design of the ball and socket release mechanism. The Mirage has an excellent release mechanism that hopefully will not break over time."
"The ResMed Mirage Activa is a well constructed nasal mask, however it is too bulky and heavy to be supported by its headgear. When I tighten the headgear enough to keep this mask in place I get a red and irritated nose. When I tighten the headgear just enough to get a good seal that seal is lost when I move my head. I bought the "Gecko" nose shield, but it feels creepy. ResMed's selling point for this mask is that it is perfect for active users, therefore the title "Avtiva". It clearly misses that mark. Purchase return insurance if you plan on this purchase. I did not and this was a mistake. I will purchase a "Mirage Ultra II" without headgear to replace "Activa" - the good news is that the headgear that came with "Activa" will interchange with the "Ultra II" and will work fine for this lighter mask. ResMed needs to redesign the headgear for "Activa" in a manner more like the "Vista" so that the headgear criss-crosses over the top of the head, thereby supporting this large and heavy mask."
"Long story short, this is the best mask I've ever used, and in my 7 years on CPAP, I've tried a bunch.
This mask seals nicely to your face, and the seal doesn't break when you move your head around. The exhaust vent is very quiet. Not quite silent, but not bad at all - much better than most other masks I've tried.
The only caveat is that in order for the bellows membrane to seal to your face, it must be clean. You need to take the bellows part off at least every other night and wash it (I use dish washing detergent)."
"Lack of flexibility in newer headstrap is less comfortable than previous version. Otherwise it's the same as what I've been using for 10+ years."
"I like to sleep on my stomach, and shift around several times a night. This is the first mask that I have ever owned that I don't wake up at night trying to readjust as it starts to leak air. I don't have to tighten it down to the point that I leave marks on my face. For that alone I'm completely satisfied.
Because of the "active" design it's a little larger than other masks I've owned, and it's also not as quiet - but both are easy trade-offs."
