The Fisher & Paykel Eson 2 is their best performing nasal mask. The Intuitive Headgear provides options for patients, including the ability to stretch the mask directly over the head. The Eson 2 features VisiBlue™ highlights to provide visual cues for simpler, quicker and more intuitive learning and to aid in fitting, disassembly and reassembly.
Recommended replacement annually, with cushion being replaced as needed for proper seal. Wipe down once a day with a damp cloth and wash in warm, soapy water once a week with a gentle soap.
Pillow mask was very comfortable to use and lightweight on my face. The fit was very good. I could even sleep on my stomach with this mask because it is very flexible.
I have had two of these masks and they are quite comfortable. Easy to wash and maintain. Straps good and the jaw strap clip-in is excellent function for easy use. I agree with the below comment that the velcro wears out sooner than you would expect so that drops rating by half a star. 4.5 star mask - if you are not like me, see below. I will not be getting a third mask because I keep breaking the two forehead hooks. I have broken them on both. I am a back sleeper, don't roll around much at all, wear the mask with hose going over head (right between the eyes, if you will). I like to read and/or surf in bed so I have to wear my glasses - and they fit while I am wearing my Eson 2 cpap mask. So if I fall asleep while reading (as often as not), I have my mask on. Because my glasses are on underneath the vertical forehead bar, something must be happening at night that there is just enough pressure or torque on the apparatus that over only a moderate time (4-6 months ish) the weak link of the mask - the two forehead hooks - give, and they snap off. This may be an anomaly and perhaps/likely outside the expected or approved function of the mask...but it's how I use it. So, if you are like me and keep your glasses on under your mask, then I would not recommend this mask because it's not strong enough at the forehead.
No one returned my phone call, that was bad customer service. Ordering online was fairly easy thanks to the live chat. I usually like to see what I`m buying to see if there is any alternative or better. I don`t think this product rates high in quality, weak plastic and velco don`t seem to hold after a while.
My only problem is that the connection piece across the forehead keeps slipping out of the socket, otherwise very satisfied with the product.
Eson 2 is a lighter built, ie, less robust than the original Eson. Eson 2 headgear crown strap has only 2 adjustment positions, and hope that the new headgear elastic material will be more durable as claimed. Overall it looks good and functional.
