Breakthrough Design for Comfort and Performance
As the first Gel Nasal Pillow Mask to hit the market, the Nuance and Nuance Pro nasal pillow CPAP masks were designed with a gel nasal pillow. These were to perfectly conform to your face creating a seal. They were meant to improve your sleep therapy without causing irritation to your face and nasal area.
There are three different sizes of pillow cushions that come with your Nuance; small, medium, and large, allowing for you to test all three to determine the best fit. You can also find replacement cushions when you know what size fits best. Choosing the correct size extends the life of the mask and allows for maximum comfort at all times. Air is routed towards the direction of the short tube thanks to exhalation ports, meaning air will flow in the same direction of the short tube that is most comfortable to the CPAP user preference.
Fabric or Gel Frame?
Nuance Pro Gel Mask - Silicone Frame with Gel Pads
The Nuance CPAP gel pillows mask comes with gel pads that soften the mask feel near the cheek area. Part of the frame itself is made of silicone that is flexible allowing for increased comfort during sleep apnea therapy. This is the part that connects to the nasal insert. Its gel fits snugly against the skin and stops red marks from forming. The crown strap is composed of a soft fabric. Best of all, the silicone frame is light weight and easy to travel with.
Nuance Nasal Pillow Mask: Fabric Frame - Soft Cloth Frame
Soft fabric that is flexible and lightweight, the Nuance Pro CPAP mask frame has a built in retaining ring that secures the gel nasal pillow in position. Like the silicone frame, the soft cloth frame is extremely lightweight creating an easy to travel with CPAP mask.
Short Tube for Improved Flexibility
Creating a buffer between the longer hose from your CPAP machine and the gel nasal pillow. This allows for improved flexibility during CPAP therapy. Movement during use will not cause the seal to break thanks to the swivel connected to the short tubing. The short tube can also be moved over the top of the head to keep the hose away from the users face during CPAP therapy.

Comfort is all about the positioning for the Nuance and Nuance Pro CPAP nasal pillow mask. If you have the Respironics nasal pillow mask positioned poorly, your comfort will be affected. It can lead to irritation of the face and skin. The top buckle should always be positioned on the top of your head. You will see a Philips Respironics logo on the back strap of the mask. This logo should be positioned on the back of your head. This allows for the pillow cushions to be placed in the most comfortable location.
