The Q is for Quiet
Designed with user comfort and compatibility in mind, the Fisher and Paykel Pilario Q Nasal Pillow Mask is the lightest and one of the easiest to assemble masks available for CPAP owners. With only 3 major parts, maintenance is quick and painless.
The F&P Pilario Q Nasal Pillow Mask design helps users avoid constant adjustments and uncomfortable straps that would obstruct a good night's sleep. With an added head gear option, you can choose what fits best. Both headgear options are provided for you allowing you to choose the best fit that represents the most comfortable feel.
Thanks to the seal design the user can move frequently in the night. The comfort seal moves with the CPAP user allowing them to move and flex without an air leak. The Swivel on the tubing also moves 360 degrees to allow for optimal comfort during sleep therapy. Finally, the lighter, adjustable headgear makes sure the mask does not pull on the face and stays in place all night long.
The AirPillow comes in one size. The pillow size fits all CPAP users. To wear the nasal pillow CPAP mask simply spread the wings of the nasal mask cushion and place gently under your nose. Once your CPAP machine is turned on the mask seal will self inflate and the pillow will fit snugly around your nose.
The Pilairo Q mask comes with two types of minimalist headgears: The adjustable headgear and the stretchwise headgear. Both headgears connect to the same mask frame. The adjustable headgear is composed of two straps. One fits behind the head, while the other sits atop the head.
Because of the option of headgears available the CPAP user is sure to find that the mask fits a wide range of head sizes and facial structures. Not to mention with no sizing it takes the guesswork out of what will fit you and what will leave you frustrated and going back to the drawing board.
Quiet, Powerful Performance
The Pilairo Q represents an innovation in quiet technology. While light and comfortable on the user, the F&P Pilairo Q is known for its big time performance and quiet air flow. It is a highly effective nasal pillows mask due to its diffusers. These diffusers connect to the air vent and quiet the air as it flows. This makes sure you and your partner do not wake up due to a noisy delivery tube.
The mask can be worn both with and without the diffusers, depending on the user's comfortably. However, it is recommended that they be replaced every 2-3 months in order to remove any germs or bacteria that can be stored there. Five replacement diffusers will come automatically with the mask purchase while extras can be purchased on our website.

Is the mask loud?
Designed specifically to ensure that air flow is directed away from the user, the mask is quiet and will provide no disturbances for you and your partner. The Q stands for quiet!
I sleep with my mouth open. Is this a good CPAP mask for me?
The simple answer is both yes and no. You can sleep using this nasal mask even if you breath through your mouth at night. However, to do so you will need a chin strap. That said, most people prefer to sleep without a chin strap. If you would prefer to also sleep without one then we would recommend trying one of our full face masks instead.
