Product Details

The Fisher and Paykel Pilairo CPAP Nasal Pillow Mask is discontinued. Please see The Fisher and Paykel Pilairo Q Nasal Pillow Mask

Lightweight, Comfortable CPAP Mask for All

Coming in just one size with one strap, Fisher and Paykel's Pilairo endeavors to be an all-in-one CPAP mask. It's single strap headgear design is comfortable and offers less facial irritation than any other CPAP mask. The AirPillow seal gives users of all facial shapes and sizes a great seal without blocking your line of sight or obstructing your natural movements. Weighing less than two pounds, the Pilairo is an ideal mask for travelers with sleep apnea.

Air Pillow Seal

The Pilairo's calling card is the self-adjusting Air Pillow seal. The mask's one-size-fits-most design makes it easy for you to get a good seal with this mask, no matter what your facial structure may be. Just put the Pilairo on, and the mask will self-inflate as you breathe.

Mask and Hose

The Pilairo's mask and hose snap into each other while built in stabilizers hover over the nose. The rotating elbow lets you position your tube however you see fit for a comfortable and customizable CPAP treatment.

Single Strap Headgear

Because the mask seals so well, only one headgear strap is necessary for this nasal pillow mask. The strap is made from a soft, stretchy fabric that will accomodate your movements throughout the night, without compromising the effectiveness of your therapy.


Key Features

  • No Touch Mask Base
  • 360 Tubular Rotation

Reviewers Tip:

PILAIRO REVIEW: Great concept - Lousy engineering

I've been on CPAP for 16 years, last 6 with Swift FX.

The way the nose connectors push up and back is accelerating the unfortunate ‘‘growing nose'' syndrome that we will all face with age.

So the pilairo concept is perfect to counteract this phenomenon.

HOWEVER...

PROS:
• Feather lightweight although the few grams difference makes it a non-issue.
_ Part of this weight loss comes from a very short front tube:
half the length (17,5 cm vs 34,5 cm) of the Swift FX
_ this means that your main connecting tube, which is heavier,
has more leverage and tends to pull the pilairo down.

• Pillow is soft and prevents leaks
• Very quiet ++ I am asleep but my girlfriend is appreciative
• Stylish and sturdy frame

CONS:
• One size fits all head strap is a fallacy. it was so tight It irritated my nose and upper lip.
I created an ‘‘in-house'' solution by cutting the strap and sewing in an elastic extension
and a velcro tensor.

• One size fits all nose connectors is another atrocity. By the fourth incomfortable night,
my nose bled and I was left with bleeding then scabs on each side of my central septum
To think that I paid good money for this !

If it works for you... excellent, but my personal discussion with ORL and sleep specialists has clearly shown that most people who require a CPAP, are on the upper third in weight and height. Somebody in market research dropped the ball with this absence of adaptable hardware.

• I contacted F&P and even offered to beta test their next upgrade... not even an ackowledgment

F&P is sitting on a gold mine with the ‘‘pillow concept''. I am having a thought or two about creating a new well adapted product based on that ‘‘yet unpatented'' concept...

What can i say, Thank You Respshop, i have been getting ripped off here in Australia but no more thanks to you.
Excellent email communication with customer service., Received the Fedex International shipping in 3 days to Australia.
Not only do you get excellent prices and they give you access to machine software after purchase.

This is my 3rd Nasal Mask, my first was the Zest (AU$249), then i tried the OPUS Nasal Mask even better than the Zest (AU$249).
Now i have just purchased from Respshop best Nasal Mask yet & even better AU$200 cheaper than i could have got it in good old oz.
Really comfortable, lightweight, hardly any disturbance during sleep., really soft natural feel.

I have a RESPIRONICS - REMstar PLUS CPAP System with humidifier.

1) I will be ordering some #1005945 Ultra fine filters- How many units contents each package?
2) I am actually using a #1007968 model mask. It has a gel front separator that always gives problems. It becomes corrupted in a few time. I would like to change to better model of mask. What do you recommend? Is the Fisher & Paykel Pilario Nasal Pillow compatible with my REMstar unit?

Your soon recommendation would be appreciated before ordering.

My first experience with CPAP and a mask. So did not know what to expect. Nose is becoming less sore after 2-3 weeks. Would prefer an adjustable head band. Speaking of which, I do perspire sometimes when I sleep. The center section of the headband (suede or something) faded and ruined two pillowcases before we realized what the problem was. Several washings with bleach, detergent, Oxi-clean, spray-on stain removers have reduced, but not removed the stain. Considering wrapping that part of the strap with Duct tape.

I love this mask as it is small, unobtrusive, comfortable and seals very well. Unfortunately I have been unable to achieve much success so far as I am a light sleeper and the noise from the air diffuser keeps me awake and the volume of air that is blasted from the diffuser is significant. Ear plugs did help but I could still hear myself breathing. It would be a great mask for a heavy sleeper on a reasonably low pressure. I will persevere with it as it is just so comfortable - I just wish it was quieter.

Hi CPAP users: this an exceptional mask and the best so far that i have used till to date. A simple hassle free mask that just feels like nothing over your face,, Great one size fits all and that is true,, great fit from the moment you put in on and almost zero leaks.

Hi, I've been using a Nasal Pillow for about 10 years and just changed to the 400420A. What a great mask. Light, soft against my skin and easy to sleep in. Recommend it to "pillow" users.
