Amara View Full Face Mask
Due to the Amara View's under-the-nose design it will not leave an abrasion on the bridge of your nose. The Amara View was designed to be sleek and forgo any type of forehead support making it a small and light sleep apnea mask.
If you wear glasses, watch TV, use a tablet/computer or even read before falling asleep you can rejoice! Your field of vision is not compromised as it only takes up a small portion of your face allowing the user to enjoy the "view" with the Amara View.
Comfortable Silicone Full Face Amara View Cushion
With comfort in mind, the Amara mask cushion will rest comfortably under your nose and on your face, while still providing a great seal without any air leaks. The nostril opening allows pressure into the nostril without causing irritation like a traditional nasal pillow would.
If you are unsure what cushion size you need, the Respironics Amara View comes in a fitPack option. It will come with 3 different size cushions, so you will be able to find out which cushion size gives you the best fit. This FitPack option is recommended if you are unsure of your size. All options, whether you chose the fitPack or not will include both the mask and headgear.
Amara View Headgear is Adjustable
Having a four-point adjustment around the mask and a fifth adjustment on the crown of your head makes the Amara View headgear quite innovative. It rests on your head helping to reduce discomfort during CPAP therapy. The head gear was designed to promote a secure fit and evenly apply pressure with different adjustments available. The crown strap crosses over the top thus creating a halo shape behind the user's head.
Headgear Clips with a Quick Release
We all go through the difficulties in the middle of the night where we have to take off our CPAP Mask. With the quick release clips, you will no longer have to experience that difficulty. Simply rotate the clip and lift it from your face. Afraid you might apply too much pressure and break a clip? You can wear the
Respironics Amara View mask even without the use of the clips making it easy to re-apply the mask and fall back asleep swiftly.
The hose on the Amara View is placed at the front of the face. This makes it a great mask for a side sleeper and people who move around a lot in their sleep. It is cost effective and ergonomic.
Universal Mask Frame
You've voiced your concern and Philips Respironics has listened. Say good-bye to buying multiple masks! The Philips Respironics Amara View features a universal mask frame so you will know that any cushion size will fit properly. This is a huge step forward as it will be more convenient for the user to simply replace the cushion with any size needed. No more having to re-purchase a complete mask set just because the cushion needs to be replaced.

Subject: Amara Facemask
I ordered another cushion for my new Amara facemask. The original one (A SMALL) came down to the bottom of my lip. I ordered A MEDIUM cushion, thinking that it would at least get to half way to my chin. WRONG! They are exactly the same size except for a nose opening that is a fraction of a centimeter difference. I could not even tell the difference.
I feel like a SUCKER and will never order anything from this company again.
Hi Carol, it is important to check the sizing gauge for the mask you are purchasing to determine which size would be most applicable to you. Please give us a call we would be more than happy to assist you in finding the correct sizing.

This mask works very well and is comfortable. Thank you for fast shipping and service.
I have been looking for a mask that doesn't cover my nose bridge for a very long time. I used to have that type of mask and the skin around my nostrils would always get irritated. I ended up buying the Amara full face mask a few weeks back and it has served me well.
The main problem is that I have developed a rash under the straps. I hope there is a solution to this because none of the other full face masks I have tried in the past come close to the comfort and seal of this one. Other than the rash, the other parts of this mask are near perfect.
I sleep on my back so I don't want to talk for people who sleep on their side, but I think the seal is very good if you sleep on your back. I have not had problems with leakage unless I move to my side. There have also been no pressure sores from using it.
It is also easy to use the mask because of how easy it is to clip on the side strap and the quick release hose.
Very good design, I just wish they would fix the material for the straps because I've never gotten a rash from any other mask.
I'm sorry to hear you had a reaction to the material in the straps! Do note that we have a 30 day mask assurance policy, so we can definitely exchange this for another mask with a different material. Please call us at 1-866-936-3754

Good and comfortable mask, impressed by Respshop customer service. Thank y
Respironics always make quality products and I’ve enjoyed using various masks from their collection in the past. In the past I used their nasal masks but recently I sought to pick up a full face mask so I could breathe through my mouth as well. After using this mask for two months now, I can attest to the qualities of this mask, and it certainly deserves a 5 star.
The most important part of any mask is the cushion and the Amara’s cushion is superb. It sits under the nose and there’s a little area with holes in it that you breathe through. Overall, the feel is very light and it almost feels like the cushion isn’t sitting on your nose at all. However, the headgear design holds it quite well and I’ve had no issues with seal at all. FYI, the Amara has a fitpack option which comes with all three cushion sizes. I would always recommend getting the fitpack so you can try out the cushion that works best for you.
Like I said, the headgear holds on very well. It’s light and comfortable and leaves your field of vision clear. That’s something I really like about this mask, since the cushion sits under your nose, you can see almost perfectly. You can wear glasses without problems. All in all, the Amara is a perfect package of comfort and performance. It’s hands down the best mask I’ve ever tried and I will recommend this mask to anyone and everyone.
This mask is packed with features and overall has a very ambitious, cutting-edge design. I personally really like it, as it’s an unrivaled package of comfort and convenience. Without hesitation, I give it 5 stars.
Performance – It seems like this is an area where people have some complaints, usually with leakage. In my month using it, I haven’t had any issues. The cushion fits me well and I was able to get a very good fit after fiddling with the straps. It feels like it gives me a solid seal and my sleep reports back that up. I am a fairly average sized human though, so I can’t speak to how the fit is for larger people.
Comfort – This is where the Amara is absolutely best in class. Headgear goes around your nape and your crown, with each strap having a point of adjustment. I was able to get a good fit thanks to the amount of customization I had. Mask frame is universal this time too (unlike some older Respironics masks) which is absolutely fantastic. As I mentioned before, the cushion fits well. I would HIGHLY recommend buying the FitPack, as it includes all three cushion sizes so you can test all possibilities. You’ll notice the cushion design is a little different than other full-face cushions, as the nose part sits mostly under your nose. This was great for me since my nose bridge gets uncomfortable with the standard designs, and this rectifies that. I didn’t have any trouble breathing through the nasal portion.
Convenience – Another part where the Amara is fantastic. The bottom two straps are attached by magnets, so you can easily just take off the mask. I read some complaints that the magnets are weak and come off easily at night. Those weren’t issues for me but I am also a fairly static sleeper. Hose swivels which is always nice for comfortable placement and it has a quick release option, which is my preferred way for getting disconnected when I get up at night. Finally, my favorite part, no forehead support brace means your line of sight is completely open. I can read, watch TV, wear glasses, all without issue.
Overall, just an absolute JOY of a mask. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants the best fit and feel from a full face mask.
Genuine mask, high quality with all accessories, size is perfect
I wanted to like this mask as it is a hybrid like the Resmed F30 and I cannot wear a nasal or full faced mask. However, it pushes way to much air out of the vent holes on the mask part that sits right under your nose and also pushes air out the anti-asphyxiation valve hole on the tube that is connected to the mask. (yes, the small silicone flapper in the tubing closes correctly when the mask is connected to my BiPap machine but still pushes out air) To much air for me blowing up into my face and eyes.
Also, where the mask sits on my mouth (I measure small size with this mask), it presses up against my upper lip and makes my top front teeth sore in the morning. I tried the med sized mask included in the Fit pack I purchased and had the same problem with the upper portion of the mask pressing too hard on my upper lip/teeth. Note, the headgear straps are not pulled too tight.
Thank you for your feedback! If this mask does not work for you please give us a call since we do have a Mask Assurance Policy, I am sure we can find you one that will work for you.

Terrible product, nearly impossible to get a seal. Velcro is terrible and will not stay attached. Wore out in 4 weeks
Thank you for your review! Luckily we do have a Mask Assurance Policy so give us a call so we can get that exchanged for you.
Your Respshop Team
Good product for the price. Excellent customer service
This is NOT a good mask. I have found it impossible to make a seal and it subsequently "leaks like a sieve." After many tries, I have switched back to the Philips Respironics Dreamwear full face mask. It makes a great seal. I switched to the Amara because I hoped to avoid the airway tubes of the Dreamwear. I won't switch again.
* Thank you for the review! Remember we do offer a Mask Assurance policy so please give us a call :)
Susan with Respshop
Received this mask some 5 days ago. The mask does not fit well and leaks around the corners of my mouth. Continued to adjust straps to stop leaks and reached a point where it did but the fitment is terribly tight and applies a lot of pressure on the face. The worst part is that I've yet to wake up with the mask still on. The lower magnetic straps Have popped loose every night so far and I find the mask laying on the floor every morning.
Not a very comfortable fit.

This is the most comfortable mask I have worn in the 8 years I have been using a cpap east to put on and take off no issues what so ever love it
Good face mask my only problems with it is that the air blows in my eyes and gives me dry eyes and sometimes my nose underneath is a little sore from the band inside.
Very good fit for mouth breathing without covering my whole face or field of view (typing thus while it's on). Super quiet too! Great customer service!
The picture shows the one i currently use and is the only type i like but im a big tall man with a xl nose and wide nostrils. I need an extra large size in this style which i am unable to find anywhere. Can someone tell me where to find an xl in this style only.
The Amara View does not come in an XL BUT a very similar mask is the DreamWear full face mask that has a Med/Wide cushion which will make the mask a bit bigger. I hope this is helpful.
After several years I underwent another sleep study. This mask was determined to be the best for me. However, I have developed a pressure sore at the base of my nose due to the silicone seal having somewhat sharp edges. The placement of the nasal passage holes don't align with my anatomy requiring me to position the mask in a way that exacerbates the sharp silicone edge irritation.
I do not like the placement of the vents. They blow upward sufficiently enough to blow into my eyes, causing dry eyes. a better placement would be fo the vents to be on the sides, perhaps.
I have tried many full face and nasal masks over 15+ years. This mask fits amazingly with no leaks and no over tightening which used to mark my face. I highly recommend it.
This was a great choice of mask for me. Straps are worn off quite easily and is a negative aspect but overall it is a great product.
I have used a CPAP for 25 years and this is the worst mask I have tried to used!
This mask is far better than any other mask I have used, a bit pricey but worth it.
This is the best mask I have ever used. Very comfortable fit and mnimal air leaks. Unlike other full face masks it does not sit on the bridge of your nose that block part of your vision while wearing it making me feel very claustrophobic. I do advise replacing the cushion every 3 to 4 months from wear and tear.
I normally use the comfort Blue Jel mask. I do have problems, at times, with soreness on the bridge of my nose. I have been trying different solutions to provide a break from the Blue Jel. The nose pillows did not work. I have a bipap and it seemed as though the volume of air was too low. This mask seems to have solved my problem. I cannot use it all the time, as I am a very restless sleeper and I need a rugged mask. If you sleep on your ban=ck all the time, this would be a very comfortable mask.
I am very pleased with this mask fits very nicely under nose and around mouth and no leaks when adjusted properly.
One of the best masks I have owned in the 9 year period I have been using c-pap equipment.. Note it dose dry you out with no humidifier on but comfort more than makes up for it.. I recommend this mask too anyone struggling to find a good fit and comfort....
