Soft Cloth Cushion for SleepWeaver Elan Nasal CPAP Mask
Cloth Cushion SleepWeaver Elan Overview
This cushion is for use only with the SleepWeaver Elan mask.
Where do I find the size?To find the size of the SleepWeaver Elan™ Soft Cloth Nasal CPAP Mask, turn the mask to view the bottom of the cloth mask. With the cushion flaps facing the user, the information can be found by looking to the left of the mask seam. The word "S M A L L," "R E G U L A R," or "L A R G E" will be written out depending on the size of the cushion.
Do NOT use baby shampoo to clean SleepWeaver masks.
Circadiance recommends using a mild, non-abrasive detergent that is not anti-bacterial and has a low oil content to wash the SleepWeaver masks and headgear. Liquid Tide is one example of a mild, non-abrasive, low oil detergent product. However there are many other appropriate products available for use.
Circadiance also suggests not to use an oil based soap when washing the SleepWeaver masks and headgear. Circadiance recommends against using baby shampoo which does contain oils.
Hand wash the Elan and headgear using warm (do not use hot) water and a mild, non-abrasive, non-antibacterial soap. Remove the elbow and rings before washing. After washing and rinsing, allow the mask to air dry, laying flat. Do not place the mask in the clothes dryer. The manufacturer suggests washing the elan daily and the headgear once a week.
Something seems to have changed in the material. This is my fourth mask of this type and I have been very happy with it until this one.(consistently 5 star). The other three had material that was very soft and conformed easily to my face. This one almost seems to be made of a stiffer plastic material. I have continuous small leaks no matter how I adjust the mask. I had to tighten the headgear to to make it useable to the point that I now have strap marks unlike before. more...
I was very suspect how a cloth mask could work - but it does! I sleep much better (quality and quantity) with this product more...
Hard to get used to I like the older model better.
If it works great. Just need to tight up the mask attachment if you toss and turn a lot at night. Other than that I sleep much better than I have ever with the non cloth mask. more...
If you can't tolerate silicon, this is the way to go. It tends to leak air at the bridge of my nose (it's narrow) but keeping it pulled low on my upper lip brings the upper part down to a wider part of my nose. It works for me. more...
