I just took a look at it. Some of those testimonials are for 1999. It is a wonder resmed or some other company who supplies cpap and mask haven't latched on to that if it is good.

I don't think I will be checking it out. For starters it looks like you will have to make you own mouthpiece by boiling something. And then you would have this peice in your mouth, which will be causing an adjustment to your jaw..I don't know about it. Let's see if others have tried it.

I read the thread from a few months back. The cpappro sorta sounds similiar to the f/p oracle. Now I have been using the Oracle since July and absolutely love it but most people have a really hard time using it. I love it because it is more comfy than my old full face mask but it definitely is not issue free by no means. I have to wear silicone nose plugs nightly-that slip out after a few hours-so I actually use a couple of strips of tape to keep them in place. Once again...a small price to pay. I drool a small amount but not buckets like some people have described.

I do have a lot of curiosity about that Nomask but, My mouth falls open while I sleep, making it necessary to wear the chin strap. I have been trying all the masks except the nasal insert. I would think that something that fits in the mouth would drop out for me. Any thoughts on this? Jimmy

I do not like the idea of something in my mouth. I find my nasal pillow works well for me. I chose that because I did not think I would get on with a mask.

(Repeat post) Try a cheap mouth piece from a drugstore to see if you can tolerate it.
My problem is I cannot tolerate the nasal pieces of masks.
