Nasal-Aire II Cannula
I love the Nasal-Aire II cannula system for using my CPAP. I get claustrophobic with masks and the cannula system gives me the freedom I need to be able to use my CPAP. The soft silicone of the nasal cannula makes a great seal and I don't even notice it. I do wish the tubing for the cannula was about 4-6 inches longer to connect with the tubing to the CPAP. I think the headgear is a bit too complicated. I only use the one strap across the back of my head that holds the tubing back and not hooked into the loops and extra straps across the top of the head. The strap holds the tubing fine and I am a restless sleeper and shift from my side to back all night long and have never had the nasal cannula come loose or disconnect. This is probably the only type of CPAP delivery I will ever use. By Tamye , Idaho
I ordered the various sized package and the smallest sized one is too large so I am unable to use any of them. I think they need to make smaller ones. By Dee, Inglis, Fl
This Nasal 11 Cannula Style "mask" works very well for me. It is way too long for my short frame so I doubled it up (It twists at the back of my neck). I do not use the headgear. A couple times during the night I need to tighten the bolo to keep the tubes from sliding off my ears. I am sleeping sounder than I used to. I bought this style "mask" to keep the headgear off of my hair, which was breaking due to the headgear movement. By Connie H, Hendersonville, NC
Excellent product - allows stomach sleeping - numerous air pillows allow you to choose the proper size to eliminate nasal air leaks By J Bryan, Auburntown, Tennessee
Very positive experience, delivery just as promised. Very smooth transaction. By Will, Oklahoma
Directions for the head gear could be a little more specific By Marion Q,
It's what I ordered
Been using this headgear for 10+ years, replacement is exactly as described. By Tony, Illinois
so rigid and loud!!
trust me after 10 years of CPAP , This one was the bulkiest and loudest by far. After 3 minutes I threw it away!! By Mike G, carmel ny
Could not use
Most uncomfortable thing I've ever tried to use! Could not even sleep one night with it. By Denny B, Nashville TN
I have always used the Nasal Air but went through a home health agency. This was much easier and I will use again. By Lou Ann J, Williamson, WV
Nasal-Aire II Cannula Style CPAP/BiPAP Mask with Headgear was my 4th replacement. Couldn't get a better sleep without it. The soft hose makes it easier to sleep on my sides when I turn during the night. By David J, Honolulu, Hawaii
Nasal Aire II Cannula Style CPAP Mask
I have been most comfortable with this type of CPAP mask since using my machine 8 years ago. Since the local medical equipment store in my area does not carry this type anymore, I researched online and found cpapxchange. Their prices are better than any other websites I looked at. I get a good night's sleep, it is long lasting and am happy this product is carried by cpapxchange. By Linda C, Painted Post, NY
Long-Term Satisfied User
I've been using the Nasal-Aire II for years and years. At least 10 years. It's perfect for me, and when I use it, I sleep straight through the night. I do use them until they wear out so totally that I can't even mend them with cloth tape, then I go looking for a replacement. Yay for me, I found this one. Perfect complete set for a terrific price. I'm sold. By c2, Livermore, CA
The Nasal--Aire ll came with several different pillow sizes. I have tried three sizes but they don't stay in my nose. Air leaks and the machine makes double the amount of noise with this mask set compared to my old set. There were more headgear pieces in the kit than I am used to or expected. They give lots of options for fitting it to your head. It seems like the tubing and pillows are made with slightly stiffer ot thicker material than previous ones. I am using the headgear and the tubing from the chin to the nose but I ended up reusing my old pillow, germs and all. I spent too many nights sleeping poorly die to poor fit of the ones in the kit. What was sent was delightfully complete. Unfortunately, I can't find one I like. By Sleepy, Western PA
CPAP Nasal Aire II
The nasal cannula is easier to use and more comfortable. I am still trying to get used to it so I haven't tried a full night in bed with it. I am however up to 2 hours of watching TV with it. I guess my gripe at this point is the thickness of the tubing. I sleep mostly on my stomach and on either side so I am not sure how well this will work with my current sleeping habits. I guess I will need to change to sleeping on back to make it more comfortable. By Pierce M, Collegeville, PA
nasal air II mask
Item was received as stated and at a good price. By Robert,
I have bought this product before and it works perfectly for me. It is less confining than the mask that fits over your nose and mouth. By , Brooklyn
Works fantastic !!! Also a person does not need to wear the full head gear simply wearing pulling the hoses tight together with the elastic clamp and around the back of the neck harness is more than enough and comfortable to sleep with on your back or side... By JC, NM
A Bit Muchy
May be OK for back sleepers but not so much for sleeping on side. All the hoses and clips and connectors don't feel too good on the head and wrapped around the neck etc.. By RD, WA
Idea was good, didn't work that well.
This type of mask was recommended by a Pulmonologist but I'm not sure he was full aware of how this actually works. The idea of not having headgear was what I liked about this mask. Two things happened though. I could not figure out how to get the mask to make a tight seal in my nose. It might have worked had I used the headgear, but I already have one that I like using headgear and the nose pieces also didn't seal very well either. It was worth a shot, but I went back to my Opus Nose pillows. By Jerry, Indiana
Nasal aire 2
I ordered the nasal aire 2. It is the only cpap mask I will use. I don't use all the head gear - only one Velcro strap at the back. I can sleep on my side easily. I have tried other masks/pillows and always come back to nasal aire 2. By Cnfulton, Texas
nasalaire ii cannula style cpap bipap mask
This is the 3rd time I have ordered this replacement type mask. The service has always been excellent, quick delivery with standard shipping, and good quality By Dave, Indianapolis
Best product for my husband
This product allows my husband to sleep well. He doesn't have sore areas on his face from the mask. He is able to sleep in all positions. By Mary, WI
Nasal-Aire II Cannula CPAP Mask
I don't see how anyone can wear this mask. The tubes are to large to fit behind the ears, the extra small cannula is way to big for my nostrals. I tried it with the headgear and it still doesn't work. I was looking for something more comfortable that the normal nasal mask, this sure doesn't fit the bill. I just wasted $79. By Connie, CA
I've started using the Nasalaire II again from the pillows. Nothing seals as well, really, and that's the bottom line on high pressures. For me, it's comfortable all night. Make sure you get a full size set up if you've never tried it, but it seems a little wasteful if you know what size fits you. This mask is wonderful for me to side sleep . It doesn't leave marks on my face and doesn't push up my nose, although not all pillow kits push my nose up like the old ones a few years ago. I'm glad they haven't changed the NA's. I just don't like wasting the pillows and straps that they add now .I was looking for the old one, the Nasal Aire Classic? If it's less expensive , I could just get that next time around. I don't see it here. and the prices are real good here. My husband and I both like this dealer.OK, yes, also, you can turn off the humidifier with these and even if you don't, if your house is dry, it never collects condensation-(really, never.) By fran, remote
I was very unhappy with this product. Here's a list of issues to consider:
1. Tubing diameter is huge and makes it impossible to sleep on your side or even turn your head very far while TRYING to sleep.
2. The weight of the tubing pulls the nasal pillows out of your nose unless you choose ones much larger than needed and then it's painful
4. Even trying the various options for wearing, the tubing is HUGE. Yes, it was worth repeating this... By sleepy in AZ, Phoenix
Loved the original, the new one is ok?
Love the cannula style, but they changed the composition of the hoses, they now harden an crack instead of staying playable. If the went back to the original hoses it would get 5 stars from me but as it is now 3 is the best I can muster. By Eric , Oregon
Great Mask but Packaging Could be Improved
After trying at least five different types of CPAP masks, my husband was very pleased to finally find this mask. The headgear is very adjustable, and stays secure throughout the night. The tubing that secures the nosepiece is flexible and attaches to a long hose, which can conveniently be hung out of the way. There are 5 or 6 sizes of nose pieces included in each package, allowing one to find a good fit. By DKHarmeyer, Phoenix, AZ
nasal aire cannula
I am petite and the xs fits my male partner and the tubes are too close together. By Rosanne, NYC
very comfortable, best I've tried so far
First of all, my Nasal-Aire II arrived very quickly after my order was placed--Thank you!!
This mask is very comfortable. I used it with the head gear the first couple of nights, then switched to no head gear and it works fine. I have central sleep apnea and use fairly high pressures with my bipap machine, and I was told I wouldn't be able to use this type of mask because it would blow out of my nose. Well, that hasn't happened once. Every single nasal mask I've tried restricts my nostrils, leaves marks on my face, blows air into my eyes and wakes me up constantly because of needing adjustment. This one doesn't do any of that. This is the only mask that allows me to sleep on my side, which is a much better position for me. I was so desperate, I bought this out of my own pocket rather than wait several months for my insurance to allow me a new mask. I wish I had found this years ago!
The only thing I don't like about this mask so far is that the air vents make it pretty noisy. That may be dependent on the air pressures needed, though. I sleep with ear plugs anyway, so it's not a big problem. By MaryAnne, NC
Nasal-aire 2 mask
I love this mask! And cpapxchange is fabulous as well. No prices cheaper out there that's for sure! Fast shipping and fully stocked. You won't be dissatisfied! By Mark, Western North Carolina
Nasal-Aire II is the best for me
I have been using a CPAP for about 15 years. The Nasal-Aire II is the most comfortable mask on the market. You can roll over and sleep on your side with no mask shift. I am surprised that more sleep apnea folks aren't using it. I have tried the other styles and could never get a tight fit without straps and headgear snugged up all over my face and head.
All that is needed with the Nasal-Aire is a single strap behind your neck/head to hold the tubes and a "bola" splip strap to hold the tubes as the come below your neck - all the other straps and headgear that come with the kit are unnecessary for me. The original nasal-aire (from about 5 or 6 years ago) was available without the head gear - only had a couple of the straps I mentioned above. Wonder if the price would be less if you could buy one of the old type kits?
One other recommendation for new users - buy the full set of cannulas (in all sizes)the first time - getting a good fit on the nostril inserts is critical. After you find your size, then order the size you need only the next time - in fact the cannula will outlast several sets of the tubes. Over time the tubes get stiff and seem to want to come out of the bottom tee easily - I used to order just the replacement tubes; but the entire set of tubes, cannula, and straps is only a few bucks more and you get a new set of the velcro straps with the entire kit (the velcro wears out over time). By Terry D, Tennessee
OUT STANDING MASK
THIS IS THE BEST NASAL PILLOW MASK THAT IS ON MARKET,I LOVE IT SO MUCH,I WOULD NOT USE MY CPAP MACHINE TILL I GOT THIS MASK////////THANK GOD,FOR THE MASKMAKER////// By Ms.Happy, Savannah,Ga
This in my opinion is the best option for a CPAP mask. And this product at CPAP Exchange is every bit as good as my original equipment. By secjcc, Azle
THE NOSE PIECE WILL NOT STAY ATTACHED TO TO THE TUBING, IT COMES OFF SEVERAL TIMES A NIGHT. I WAKE UP UNABLE TO BREATHE AND HAVE TO PUT IT BACK TOGETHER By DEENA P, TEXAS

By sleepless in san mateo, san mateo
Nasal-Aire II Cannula Style CPAP/BiPAP Mask with Headgear
Once again, great service in providing another set of Nasal-Aire II components. By Scott D., Fairfax
Love this mask!
This is the most comfortable mask I have found. It is the only one that will let me sleep on my stomach! I highly recommend it. By bchilese, San Francisco
I love the speed of the delivery. It would be nice if just the tubing that goes to the nasal prong were sold separately. This is what needs replacement more often than any of the other parts. By Edward, Crossville TN
Super Fast !!!
I love the super fast service I get. The Nasal-Aire ll is the very best and easiest to use mask. It makes sleeping a pleasure again. By Edward, Crossville TN
Nasal Aire II
I received the product within 2 days of ordering. Very timely. It was more than I expected. In the past I had received only the hoses, Velcro, and a prong that cost over 300 dollars from a local business. I received all size prongs, hoses, and Velcro for less than 100 dollars including shipping. All expectations were exceeded with my first order. I have been looking for just this solution for over 2 years. Thank You So Much By Gary, Orange Park, Florida
Made my nose hurt
I've been using Respironics Comfort Classic Mask for years - my only real problem was 'dry eye' from leakage. I liked the design and simplicity of the Nasal-Aire II, but had to return it. It solved the leakage issue pretty well, but I never could used to the things in my nose, found them uncomfortable; even bought special lubricant. Back to the Comfort Classic... By S W Hurlbutt, Atlanta
Nasal-Aire 2 Cannula Style
To thick of tubing around the ears. I can't sleep on my side. Head gear does not fit me. By nancy, littleton
I like it alright. I was looking for something similar to what I had already been using, but that was less likely to leak air around the nose piece. This one does not leak as much, but no matter how much I adjust the head straps (even without the head straps), it makes my nose sore to the touch. They send you six different sizes for the nose piece, but even the x-small one is a little too big for me. I also have trouble with the water bubbling up in the tubes in the middle of the night and after that I just don't want to where it at all. If I can figure out how to keep it from irritating my nose, I will like it a lot better. But until then, I guess I'm just stuck with it, because I can't afford to buy another one. By Amy, Youngsville
still a great mask. pillow masks do not compare! By John D., Tampa
NASAL-AIRE II CANNULA STYLE
My first CPAP mask. Worked great first night or two. Then had to go to a larger pillow, probably just me. Seems to be an o.k. mask but not having anything to compare it with ...? By ozark preacher, Seligman, MO.
luv this mask
the nasal-aire II is still better than the pillow masks for me. I love it. By Karen R., Miami
Very easy to wear. Does not cover up face and will not ruin expensive hair styles. There is no huge face mask and does not need the headgear of traditional masks. By Restless Sleeper, Chicago
This is the Best Minimulist CPAP Mask Ever!
I've tried all the headgear, up to the ones that make you feel like you're going deep-sea diving, and this one is the most comfortable, easiest to use, (taking off & putting on) AND from a WOMAN'S point of view - the LEAST offensive-looking CPAP mask, hands down!! By K.C. Yuoh, Lakeville
I have loved the nasal aire 2, only the last 2 I have purchased are thinner and lighter in a bad way. The swivel comes apart very easy and can do so while sleeping. Still the best mask just needs better quality. By Ken, Potomac
