I have bought so many pillows over the years trying to find something comfortable with my mask... now I realise what a waste of money. THIS is THE pillow....so comfortable, great nights sleep, no neck ache, no fighting with mask, no hanging over the edge of an ordinary pillow trying to avoid creased on your face in the morning. I didnt even have to 'get used' to it - it was a dream straight away. If you use a CPAP machine and are a side sleeper - try it ...I don't think you will be sorry. It has a pillowcase on it ....but it is weird looking obviously as shaped to pillow - very comfy and you can remove and wash ....they do sell a pillowcase but its exactly the same as one it comes with and quite pricey.....still considering if I need a 'spare' case. Happy sleeping.
Over the twenty one years that I have used Cpap I have tried many special design Cpap pillows and for the most part they have been Ok but with almost as many drawbacks as advantages. This is the first pillow that exactly fits my needs . On one edge the pillow is soft with medium thickness and gentler cutouts and on the other edge it is thicker and firmer so it lifts my head into a comfortable position for sleeping on my side. I love this pillow and it is improving the quality of sleep and the amount of sleep I get which no other pillow has done. Also you can get spare covers that fit properly
This pillow was bought for my father who has suffered from sleep apnea for some years now. He has had various different styles of masks, and although not the most natural way to sleep, with a mask and tube attached to your face (my nephew when he was little use to say "grandads got a noo noo (the Hoover from tellytubbies) on his face". It was a case of having to put up with it for his health.
Just lately he has been having trouble sleeping. So I got this pillow. It arrived promptly and that night he gave it a try. The next morning he said it was absolutely magic. The best sleep he has had in years. The memory foam is soft but firm enough to support your head. The cut out corners allow the hose to fit in giving some room to move during the night but not to infringe on the mask so no air leaks. All in all a really good well thought out and made pillow for CPAP users. There is a slight smell from the memory foam (outgassing). But nothing major and my father said he couldn't smell it when his mask was attached.
It's only been a few nights of use but so far my father is highly rating this pillow and wished he'd got one years ago. It really has made a difference, and does exactly as listed on the item pictures Recommended.
This pillow has changed my sleep pattern for the better , using my cpap mask was very irritating and quite uncomfortable and I never had a good nights sleep really. This has two different heights ,one on either side so you can make yourself more comfortable depending on you're body shape and four cut always to the corners for the mask and more importantly the air pipe somewhere to go rather than try to push itself away rom you're face. You will never please everyone but using this product really has given me a better nights sleep , feeling more fresh and up and at it rather than lay in bed knowing that I just don't feel good and need sleep. As you are made more comfortable all those annoying air leaks and mask movement which wake you although not gone entirely are I find a good 90% better. This product is working for me and maybe could give someone else the same benefits if feel I'm getting.
I’ve been struggling with my machine since having it, always waking up during the night. I finally realised its when I slept on my side which moved the mask and started to blow air in my face. This pillow is great it allows me to sleep on my side without the mask being pushed away from my face, this and a small gel strip I purchased between my nose and mask now means I get a great nights sleep. Only awarded it 4 stars as I do feel the price is too high.
I like there is a different heights On either side so you chose what suites you. I also like the cut out shapes - both work well although I order the one with the more C shape. I’d suggest burying a pillow case for it as the cover on it, although zipped, is a pain to take off. I just put it in a big old pillow case - not ideal but it worked
