Fisher & Paykel

Pleased to introduce the Evora for mouth breathers, which is the newest minimal contact full face mask to the market, and will be welcome to people who can't use the minimal contact masks from other manufacturers due to magnetic clips, as the Evora has traditional manual fastening clips.

A Fitpack version is available for patients new to the mask, and the single size packs come at a special price with an extra cushion.


We have two options of the Evora mask, so for patients who have not used this mask before it is advisable to purchase the 'Fitpack' the first time containing all the cushion sizes, and for patients who have tried the mask previously, the other option at a special price is to purchase the size you use and these come with an extra cushion in the same size.

Hope2Sleep Charity's Observations:-

The Evora Full Face Minimal-Contact Mask is yet another welcome addition for mouth breathers who prefer less mask on their face and with the option of easily wearing reading glasses. Some benefits we've observed on first impressions are:-

  • There are no magnetic clips on the Evora, which is a huge bonus for patients concerned about magnetic interference with hearing aids, cochlear implants and even pacemakers etc.

  • There is a strap which clips to the front of the mask cushion which is part of the headgear, so when washing the headgear, this strap can be removed without having to undo the side velcro, meaning you can wash the mask and keep the headgear adjusted in the position how you know it fits well. (Sometimes a slight tweak can be needed after washing though).

Frame Clip

  • The headgear comes with Fisher & Paykel's unique 'VentiCool' technology to prevent overheating which can also help prevent hair getting greasy.
     
  • It is very easy to take the mask apart for cleaning and reassembling it.
     
  • Due to there being no contact with the nose bridge, the mask will appeal to those who are more susceptible to nose bridge sores and people who like to wear reading glasses with the mask on.
     
  • There is a Fitpack option which contains all three different sized cushions to experiment with properly at home in your own bed as it's so important to be laid down and using the machine to get the best fit. In fact, if ordering the mask online without being able to try the sizes, it is highly recommended to purchase the Fitpack the first time. Once you know which cushion size you are, then replacement cushions can be bought separately as they all fit the same standard size mask frame.
     
  • The mask frame and cushions have been been designed with 'wing' shapes which support the nose well, and due to it's supportive 'wings' can also help prevent leaks from the sides of the nostrils.
     
  • The mask cushions are soft to help with comfort.
     
  • The exhale vents are designed not to blow onto the bed partner and are aimed downwards.

Patient Trial Outcomes

93% of trial participants never or rarely experienced unintentional air leak into  their eyes while using  the Evora Full mask.
96% of trial participants 
were able to sleep in  their preferred sleeping position while using the  Evora Full mask.
98% of trial participants never or rarely felt claustrophobic whilst using the Evora Full mask.


Mask Content Options:-

The mask can be bought as follows:-

  • Fitpack containing all 3 cushion sizes (XS, S/M and L) which is highly recommended when first purchasing the mask
  • Size XS (extra small) with spare XS Cushion
  • Size S/M (small to medium) with spare S/M Cushion
  • Size L (large) with spare L Cushion

Standard Headgear is supplied with all mask options, but Extra Large Headgear is also available as an additional option.

All mask parts can be bought separately as and when required (on separate listings).


Tips:-

  • Be careful when cleaning, not to pull on the smaller mask tubing and use the solid end of the tubing at the mask end to remove it. Take this solid end between your fingers and rather than pull, slightly turn to disconnect (see the fitting video below).

  • The white small swivel at the hose end of the smaller mask tubing often stays inside the end of your larger machine's hose, and this does require cleaning to allow it to swivel freely, so if it is in your larger hose it will need removing.

  • When disconnecting the mask cushion from the frame, hold the firmer parts of the mask cushion, which will cut down on accidents to the mask cushion.

Evora Full Face
21 April 2024  | 

I have used both Philips and Resmed masks before this one.
I find the Evora to be very quiet (better for my wife than me but an improvement nonetheless) and is very easy to use.
It is comfortable and seems to have a good seal.
My only slight negative is that the chin clips are not magnetic. So it is a bit more clumsy than the Resmed and can occasionally come free during the night.
I would recommend giving this mask a try.

1st mask
13 February 2024  | 

Based on reviews chose this mask as first purchase for new diagnosis of OSA, mainly as preferred the look of this mask as opposed to the DreamWear. Fitpack was useful to help with choosing the right size mask. Had few problems with seal overall, although must say more for comfort and feeling air in eyes rather than machine noting a leak. Fit indicated my husband was between sizes so to get a good seal the mask had to be fairly tight on face or the space for nostrils on the nasal cushion moved and blocked nostril making it difficult to breath during the night. Was comfortable and could read/watch tv in bed with this mask and tolerated really well when secure given no previous use of CPAP. Head strap comfortable and easy to detach to wash. Did dry nostrils out quickly as auto pressure changed but use of dry nose gel helped this. Have purchased a full face mask now as when the fit caused a problem tolerance to the therapy reduced, but very new to the world of CPAP so trial and error currently. Will use again but as back up mask as opposed to being 1st choice.

It's always difficult selecting the correct mask when newly diagnosed and we understand how bewildering it can be when new to CPAP, but please reach out to us if you need further help 😊

Well-made, but not for users with long noses
09 January 2024  | 

Recently did a trial of this mask as a replacement for my F&P Simplus. I was trying to eliminate nose bridge soreness and the recurring issue of the Simplus blowing air in my eyes.

Overall, the mask did achieve both objectives. The nose seal works very well at 9cm3H2O, it's comfortable and fairly adjustable. It doesn't yank my head back when tightened like the Simplus did, and I've had not had the issues with the longer breathing tube others seem to have. It's a really well-built mask. It even manages to hold a seal with my facial hair!

Unfortunately, this mask came with problems of its own. One thing I've not seen mentioned is the fit for people with longer noses like myself. Over the course of the night, the edge of the nasal part of the mask would press down on the tip of my nose and it would get very painful, more so than my old nasal bridge marks. I tried various fitting instructions, but was ultimately unable to rectify the issue without compromising the seal as my CPAP ramped up.

This may be a problem inherent to minimal contact masks rather that a flaw of this specific model, but after a week of waking up in the middle of the night with a painful nose, I reverted back to my Simplus as I was just trading one pain spot for another. I'll probably stick to traditional full-face masks going forward.

Another niggle with this mask, although minor and more niche, are the downward-facing vents. They're very quiet, and in theory if you sleep on your side facing your partner, they're not going to feel anything. However, if you're like me and like to cocoon yourself up with the sheets right up to your chin, this mask will blow on them quite hard and it's going to be noticeable.

Would still recommend if bridge sores are a problem and/or you need something less bulky on your face - F&P definitely designed it well, and I'll likely be trying their Vitera next when it's in stock. Just be aware that some noses just don't get along with this style of mask.

Thanks for such a detailed review Charles, and we've since received a review from you after you did try the Vitera, which for you was the best mask 😊 If only there was one mask that worked for us all, but glad you've found it now with the Vitera.

Great mask
12 December 2023  | 

I have used a full face mask that seemed to close off my nasal passage,
I purchased the Evora, which was a worthwhile decision. It is really comfortable, with a very good seal, and would recommend if you find a conventional full face mask claustrophobic.

Love this mask
29 November 2023  | 

I canít fault this as I personally find it quite comfortable. The hose tubing is soft and flexible. Itís all easy to clean. It lasted for 6 plus months before I noticed that the latex was becoming more flexible and not sealing as well, so fair value I think.

Best mask so far
13 June 2023  | 

This mask is so much better for me than my other F&P Simplus full face mark that was always marking my face / difficult to get a good seal. With this one I can also put my glasses on / have it running in bed before going to sleep. Would recommend to anyone.

Comfort
09 June 2023  | 

This mask is a dream come true, it's very comfortable and I can now wear my glasses while having my mask on in bed at night. Very easy to take apart and clean, and no more sores on the bridge of my nose. Three different mask sizes (depending on what option you buy) allows you try what size suits you best, this was the game changer for me. Without the help of Kath Hope I would probably still be stuck with my old mask.

So comfortable
03 May 2023  | 

This is my first ever cpap mask and I am pleasantly surprised. The seal is perfect (even though I have a beard) and it's really comfy. I thought I'd need a hose connection on the top of my head because I toss and turn in my sleep, but I really don't. I'm really happy with this product.

Love it...But...
18 March 2023  | 

I love it, but sadly it is making my cheeks sore. I have tried all three sizes and the small suits me, but whatever size I use it hurts and causes sores to my face. I did loosen the straps but then that causes leaks. Unsure how to combat the soreness.
It is fantastic for not having a sore bridge on the nose. I can't win.

Response:

Aw it's a shame it's not perfect, but an improvement for you regarding the sore bridge. It would now be worth trying a Silent Night mask liner to see if that helps the soreness, unless the soreness is coming from the mask straps, and in that case the mask strap covers should help 🤞

Evora full face mask

Itís does fit well and is secure, I would recommend trying it though to see if it does work for you.

ORDERS

Shipping

We try our best to ship all orders received by us Monday-Friday on the same working day if received before 12 noon, and more often than not orders processed before 3pm will be despatched the same day whenever possible.  Weekend or UK bank holiday orders are sent out the next working day.  An automated email is sent when products have been despatched so please check your spam box and add us to your safe senders list.  Also, if you do not receive an email confirmation, please check that you have typed the correct email address in your account.

All orders are sent via 1st class mail within the UK.  Masks and some other more expensive products are always sent via 'signed for' insured delivery and cannot be left in 'safe' places, but there is the option for an alternative shipping address when processing the orders. 

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before making a payment.  On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called  'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do! 

Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.  

Important for International Orders

We can ship most products internationally, but all prices are in UK British Pounds and if paying by debit or credit card the bank will automatically convert to the current conversation rate.  Likewise, if you choose the Paypal option, they will convert into your currency for you as payment is made.  

International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any delays at Customs at your end, or charges that may be added in your own country, such as customs fees and import tax on delivery, which are determined by your country’s import laws and are beyond our control. Therefore, it is the customer’s responsibility to pay these charges, and certain courier companies will not be able to deliver the goods to you without pre-payment of any charges. From our experience, it appears to be randomised as to which parcels incur extra charges, but please know that all accompanying paperwork is filled in correctly when shipping and there is nothing more we can do, as much as we'd like to.

If you purchase from us out of the UK or you move to another country after purchasing products, please be aware that the warranty for CPAP machines, masks and parts from the manufacturers are under warranty  with the manufacturer based in the UK, so you will be responsible for sending the product back to us and will need to pay postage to get the product back to you after exchange or repair, as the manufacturer will not pay for shipping in any country outside of the UK.


RETURNS

Masks, CPAP machines and and most other products are exempt from a refund or exchange unless faulty due to health and hygiene issues - as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions', and in particular due to the risk of cross contamination as they cannot be re-sold. The Consumer Contracts Regulations 28.(3)(a) confirms exemption as follows:-  "exemption in the case of a contract for the supply of sealed goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons, if they become unsealed after delivery."

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage. This excludes any faulty goods, for which postage will be reimbursed.  A full refund for the price of the product will be issued when received by us, less the original postage charges when the order was sent to you.
