The Original Mirage Swift Nasal Pillows System offers an unobstructed view, is light and flexible and folds flat for easy travel.
Here are key features:
All Pillow Sizes Included. The Swift comes complete with all three sizes of nasal pillows for a secure, comfortable fit without having to guess about sizing. As with all nasal pillow devices, the smaller the pillow the more comfortable the fit, so first try to fit with the smallest size available.
Pillow Sleeve Position. The barrel of the nasal pillow sleeve rests against the philtrum, that part of the face below the nose and above the lips for stability.
Open Crown Headgear. The crown design of the headgear eliminates the forehead rest so there is nothing between the eyes and glasses can easily be worn. There are two adjustments allowing a stable and comfortable fit.
Lightweight and Flexible. The Swift weighs only 2.5 ounces and easily folds flat into a case for traveling.
Side Tube Positions. The connecting tube to the six foot hose is attached at either side of the nasal pillow sleeve and can be left down or attached to the headgear for an above-the-head position.

"This is the most comfortable c-pap out of 5 that I tried. Here's a tip for air leakage on the sides: Use baby hair pony tail holders on the sides to cover up where the conection is. Problem solved. Also, keep dogs away from the plastic, they love to chew them to pieces."

"The biggest mistake was not to buy the RETURN OFFER This thing must be made for a childs head the first night it left huge marks on the sides of my head-I fought it all nite-ending up changing to my old mask. The next night I tried something--I turned the head gear over(yes-Instructions were followed)it worked better upsidedown! Then it lasted severial hours before it got changed. I have tried all combinations-read all instructions SEVERAL times-reviewed the disk,still not working for me. Now I have made an extender to widen out the gear and MAYBE I can get used to it-but still after severial nights it has never made it thru the night. Bottom line --I wasted my money."
"Cpap.com had the lowest prices we found. We received our order by next day air in good condition. This was a replacement for an old mask, so we had experience with the product. We are well satisfied with the way our order was filled and with the campany."

How often should I replace my mask?
Medicare allows for mask cushion replacement every three (3) months, and a complete mask system replacement every six (6) months. CPAP manufacturers and vendors suggest these replacement schedules as well.
In our experience, most mask cushions begin to deteriorate after about six months of use. The cushion eventually becomes too soft to hold a seal. The headgear straps lose elasticity and must be tightened more and more to get the same quality seal.
We strongly suggest replacing cushions and pillows as soon as they start to soften. Air leaks may reduce the effectiveness of CPAP therapy and headgear that is too tight may cause facial sores at pressure points. In most cases, replacement headgear is available if it is stretched out or the Velcro worn out.
To see what parts of your mask are replaceable refer to our Replacement Part Finder. Just search for your mask to see all of the replaceable parts.
How do I care for my mask?
Masks should be washed daily with warm water using a very gentle soap or baby shampoo, and left to air dry. Never use antibacterial soap as it will break down the silicone of the mask cushion. Avoid soaps that include lotion which can coat the mask and cause it to lose its seal. A safe cleaner is the Control III Disinfectant CPAP Cleaning Solution. Remember, going to bed with a clean face will improve your seal and protect the lifespan of your mask.
The best time to clean your mask is in the morning after use. This removes the oils left behind from your skin which can reduce the lifespan of your mask. We recommend using mask wipes to make daily morning cleaning easy. The mask wipes are made from materials that will not break down your mask.
What does a mask prescription need to say?
A mask prescription must contain all of the following information:
One of the following words or phrases: "CPAP Mask", "CPAP Supplies", "CPAP Humidifier", "CPAP", "Continuous Positive Airway Pressure", "APAP", "AutoPAP", "AutoSet", "Auto CPAP", "Auto Adjusting CPAP", "Self Adjusting CPAP", "BiPAP", "BiLevel", "VPAP", "BiPAP Auto", "BiPAP ST", "Synchrony ST", "VPAP ST"

Why might I prefer a nasal pillow mask?
Nasal pillow delivery systems offer less contact with the face than either full face or traditional nasal masks. This system works well for those who tend to feel closed in or claustrophobic. Many nasal pillow systems have nothing that cross in front of the bridge of the nose allowing for a clear line of sight for reading or watching TV.
It can be easier to achieve a seal with this system, because there is less for you to adjust and less surface area to create and hold a seal.
Nasal pillow systems may work well for someone with a mustache or beard as the seal occurs only at the nares or nasal opening.
Someone who has a facial mole or scar near or around the nose, may find getting a seal with a traditional nasal mask difficult. Nasal pillows are an option in this circumstance.
Most nasal pillow masks also come with all sizes included to make finding the right size easier.
