Brevida Nasal Pillow Mask with Headgear
The F&P Brevida Nasal Pillow Mask is as easy and as simple as it looks. A lightweight nasal pillow CPAP mask built for comfort with a unique inflatable AirPillow design that allows for a remarkable seal not only inside the nostril but around the nose. This feature inflates the cushion creating a pillow of air and allowing your CPAP therapy to flow comfortably.
In the process of inhalation, the soft walls of the cushion inflate. This provides stability. Much like most nasal pillow masks the Brevida includes all sized nasal cushions. Offered in extra small-small and medium-large cushions. Moreover, this mask uses VisiBlue- the blue ring around the mask- to guide the user to the point of connection.
AirPillow Cushion Seal
Unlike nasal masks, which tend to cup the nose, nasal pillows tend to fit underneath it and funnel air into your nose. The F&P Brevida changed this model by inflating it's AirPillow cushion. The AirPillow seal inflates then allowing a gentle cloud of air to fill into your nasal passage.
The AirPillow is designed to inflate in and around the nose to create a one of a kind seals. This cushion is triangular in shape which extends from the tip of the nose to the upper lip. This unique shape and design are built to provide a seal in and around the nose. Other nasal pillow masks seal is up to the nostrils only.
This one of a kind AirPillow was mask designed with comfortability in mind.
All Size Cushions Included
Most CPAP masks on the market require you to use their sizing guide. That said, sizing guides can be confusing to the average CPAP user. Fisher and Paykel goes against the grain by reducing confusion made by complicated sizing guides! Instead the Brevida makes it very simple to get on with your regular sleep apnea therapy.
To accommodate most facial structures the Brevida mask includes two sized AirPillows. One cushion is sized to fit extra small-small and the other is sized to fit medium-large. This will surely help reduce stress that occurs when trying to find the correct mask size.
VisiBlue Adjustable Headgear
The VisiBlue headgear is adjustable, durable and light weight. It presents the thin, dual strap headgear from the thicker beige headgear straps that is connected to the headgear clips. Easy to maintain and even easier to adjust.
Equipped with Velcro tabs that easily loop through the clips for a comfortable fit. These Velcro tabs stays in place without moving. The positioning and comfortable fit of this remarkable headgear is efficient enough to provide a strong seal overnight.
Washable Diffuser Filter
The diffuser which was designed to reduce noise is now washable. This filter diffuses unnecessary sounds as it is released from the mask and captures fine particles. Now it is not only easy to maintain and is cost effective due to the newly designed washable filter. It is recommended to clean once a week to be able to provide maintenance to the item making it continuously functional.

Can I use the Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask with any CPAP machine?
The Brevida, like any other mask, can be used with any CPAP machine. Standard tubing is used to connect the CPAP machine to the mask.

Not only is the pillow replaceable, it can be replaced with a different size. Additionally, the headgear can be replaced.
If I'm a side sleeper, can I use the Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask?

I have a mustache; can I use the Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask?

Recommended If You Have Facial Hair
If you are still shopping and looking for additional guidance on masks to consider, read on!
We all have unique facial structures and RespShop stocks a large variety of masks for CPAP so that everyone can find something that works best for them. Facial hair simply adds another wrinkle to the search for the mask that is your ticket to better sleep. Nasal Pillow masks do not anchor to the lower lip and are an easy solution. Many nasal pillow masks have narrow frames and thin headgear straps, adding up to less surface area that needs to lay flat. For a nasal pillow mask designed around particularly slim headgear, Fisher & Paykel’s Brevida is a great option.
When shopping for a CPAP mask to wear with facial hair, don’t fall into the trap of sizing up. Use size guide and select the size that fits your facial structure. Over sizing results in leaks, frustration, and discomfort.

I would like to go ahead and endorse the Brevida mask. This mask is a decent mask worth its price. My old mask was too small and didnt' seal well. The Brevida mask seals well because of the nasal pillow and works well for me. The inserts are comfortable and work so well. The inflating mechanics makes it so the seal is much better than most other masks without sacrificing the comfort.
I like the split strap headgear because it fits snugly to the sides of my head and I don't have to adjust it at night. I haven't had any troubles with loose mask or air leaking like I've experienced with some other masks.
My wife has told me repeatedly after switching to continue using the Brevida mask because she "Can sleep much better without the air blowing into her face all the time!" And of course, anything to make the wife happy :) I won't be going back to my old mask.
Subject: Brevia nose mask
I do love that this mask is very quiet and fits the nose area well, but, it is very hard on the sides of the face and makes marks in the morning that I am afraid will be permanent over time. I don't understand why these masks cannot be made with a woman's skin in mind. The other ones I had were OK on the face, but were noisy and air seemed to leak out of the sides from time to time. I don't know what to do.
Thank you for your response! I would suggest Mask Wraps which I love as they really help with marks. Item 1116754 Mask Wrap
Subject: Finally a mask that doesn't irritate my nose!
I have experience trying a multitude of different masks: full face masks, nasal masks, nasal pillow masks, you name it. This Fisher and Paykel Brevida mask is the mask that never fails me. I very highly recommend it especially if you're new and looking for a mask.
My nose gets irritated easily and this is the only mask that doesn't irritate my nostrils. The nasal pillows were engineered to be very comfortable. I am very impressed with the technology behind it. On top of that I have never noticed leaks so far (~3 weeks of using this mask so far).
I have also been surprised and impressed by how consistently it did NOT leave marks on my face in the morning. Many masks tend to advertise this, and this is one of the few that actually follows through. I haven't noticed any noticeable marks on my skin in the morning from using this mask.
I also get a large field of vision compared to some other masks, which is always a plus.
Very happy customer. Thank you very much.
This CPAP mask works great for me. I shopped around, found that respshop.com had a good price. They shipped to me immediately. I’ll continue to use this vendor.
Doesn't fit my face, no matter what I have done, all sizes and all positions the air is leaking.
I am so sorry this did not work for you.

Most comfortable mask I have ever used. Allows me to sleep without interruption. I give it a bad rating for only one reason. The elastic strap stretches out on the area on the side of the face and in front of the ears. The reason for this stretch out is that the strap material gets caught on the point plastic stiffener inside the material as it the material compresses. I have tried every method of extending the strap service life beyond about 5 weeks with little to no success. The elasticity of the material is very comfortable but there needs to be some way of preventing the material from being caught on the plastic stiffener. I would purchase a new strap, but the price of these is ridiculous for the product sold. In fact, the price of the entire nose pillow mask at nearly 1$100 is way over priced for the product.

As far as air flow this mask so far has worked better but I found that it caused irritation in my nose and now I have not used the machine in a week. I got some kind of nasal infection and so far the infection is better but my nose still has the cracks which need to heal. I ordered a new mask which didn't have enough air flow for me so have a new one coming. I have allergies and my nose plugs though out the night and I use nose spray. I knew from the start it would be iffy if I could even do a C-pap machine. Time will tell...so far with either of the masks I have only got a little over 6 hours of sleep each time I had it on....I am hoping the news nose mask will work good for me.
Thank you for the feedback. If you are not happy with a mask you purchase from us please give us a call within 30 days so we can get you something that works better for you.

J'ai reçu mon masque mais la qualité est à discuter car les pièces se détachent facilement durant le sommeil. En plus il n'est pas indiqué que le prix est en US sur le bon de commande ce qui est fautif au Canada. Je ne commanderai plus de cette compagnie.
Hmm.. I like the elastic strap which seems way more hardy than the ridiculously flimsy Resmed nasal pillow one. And the mask comes with two sizes but no direction or even label as to which is which or which would be better for you. So the problem starts with the tube fitting which didn't fit my Resmed machine tubing and kept coming apart the first night. However it did fit my travel CPAP so I used it with that on a recent holiday. It stayed in position fairly well (good) and was generally comfortable but the second night it started making a noticeable noise with a lot of air rushing out of the from the front filter area. Half asleep I just thought it odd. The next night it didn't seem right so I checked again and found a detachable screen had come off. It was no where to be found. Luckily I did bring another mask and was able to switch. But not a good intro and very disappointing. Next time I'll just get another Resmed mask I think.
Not good for me, allergies keep me stuffed up, so no relief thru nose at all.
This is by far the best CPAP mask that I have ever had!. It is the most comfortable mask to wear. I will recommend it to my friends.
very simple design, love the soft silicone and gives a good seal. Pretty quiet as well. would recommend to friends and family
The mask is very comfortable and perfectly fits the nose and the head.
Very comfortable fit with a soft silicone nose cushion that seals well while not putting pressure on your nose.
