The Amara View Full Face CPAP Mask System - Fit Pack from Philips Respironics is an original design which uses a rectangular opening in the nasal cushion to deliver therapy air through the nose. The mask sits below the nostrils to yield an open view, and the headgear works in tandem with the mask to create a seal below the nostrils and mouth, eliminating the need for the traditional forehead support.

Open View Design
The Amara View Full Face CPAP Mask is supported by headgear which extends from the front of the mask frame to the crown of the head. Headgear adjustments can be made to ensure the mask has a strong seal under the nostrils and around the mouth. With the mask properly positioned, the forehead support is no longer needed. The minimal contact design offers a wide range of visibility, making it easier to watch television and to read before bed. Those who suffer from claustrophobia may find comfort in the Amara View.
Original Nasal Cushion
A rectangular opening found at the top of the full face cushion, is intended to deliver the necessary pressure without irritating the nostrils. Gently glide the nostril opening under the nose to find the intended fit. Please Note: The user must keep their nose above the hole to prevent CPAP therapy from being impaired.
Short Tube with Elbow and Swivel
Respironics' short tube for Amara View Full Face Mask extends from the mask frame and connects to the cuff of the CPAP hose. The built-in elbow attaches to the mask frame, while the swivel connects to the user's CPAP hose cuff. The swivel's 360 degree motion lessens the pull on the CPAP hose and increases flexibility and mobility, which may result in a stronger seal throughout the night.
Universal Mask Frame & All Cushion Sizes Included
The Amara View mask frame offers a universal fit for all cushion sizes including: Small, Medium, and Large. Since the Fit Pack offers all three cushion sizes, it is easy to attach each cushion to the frame in order to find the perfect fit. This feature is convenient, allowing cushions to be tested and replaced without the purchase of a new mask system. When a replacement cushion is needed, select the exact cushion and replace.
Adjustable Headgear with Magnetic Headgear Clips
The Amara View mask features an unique headgear design with five adjustment points. Four adjustment points are found around the mask frame. The crown strap which crosses directly over the top of the head to form a halo shape has the additional adjustment point. This design is intended to promote a more secure grip and a more even distribution of pressure.
Waking in the middle of the night can be frustrating, but the magnetic headgear clips are constructed to maintain the shape of the headgear throughout sleep therapy, even when the

Very pleased with product and service
Masks are totally subjective and I’m not implying it’s a bad product, just doesn’t suit my face. I really like the fit and feel of the headgear but the mask is really loud with all the little holes/perforations that allow air to blow out of the mask. I’ve noticed that the water reservoir evaporates faster due to the perforations. Bottom line, this mask doesn’t seal well on my face, it blows air and makes a lot of noise (ask my wife, she’ll tell ya) and my nose is always red in the morning...
I find the product very comfortable, the only potential drawback is if you move around a lot as it can get knocked out of position causing an air leak but otherwise it is much preferable to any of the full face products that cover the nose in my experience.
I had to go on vacation without my mask. I had to wear an old one because the one I order 8 days before my vacation can 3 days after I left. I would give this no stars if it would have let me. I was refunded the express shipping cost for the delay.
Out of three different brands and sizes, this one is the one that works for me so far. Been using the machine for a month now. This mask came with all 3 sizes S-M-L included which allowed me to try them all first. I'm been able to use the mask and sleep around 6 to 8 hours daily (Before that only 2 to 4 hours). Same model than AirFit F30 and Fisher and Paykel Simplus. Out of this 3 brands, for me the Philips Amara is the one that works.
