Part Number: VIT1SSUBrand: Fisher & Paykel
The Vitera comes with a spare mask cushion and is the latest full face mask from Fisher & Paykel since the Simplus, and the Rollfit concept of the Simplus has been taken up a level to the Rollfit XT giving 93% more roll to help the mask seal stay in place. The headgear also features breathable VentiCool technology.
The Vitera, which is the latest addition to Fisher & Paykel's good collection of full face masks, has some interesting new and improved features. The previous RollFit concept on their Simplus mask now has 93% more roll to help with mask seal and nasal bridge comfort and the new VentiCool headgear allows 21 times more airflow and 35% more moisture transfer than previous headgear
Performance meets comfort.
The Vitera mask is available in 3 sizes with a spare replacement cushion, as follows:-

My sleep clinic sent me a Fisher and Paykel Simplus mask originally. I liked the style of breathing with this mask but it made my nose bridge intensely sore. Subsequently they sent me a Dreamwear mask to avoid the nose bridge area altogether. Many people seem to like this mask but I found the noise disconcerting and wasn't keen on the way the pressured air goes up the nose. So I bought the Vitera mask recently, as the manufacturer claimed this was a significant improvement over the Simplus regarding the nose bridge area. I had an ugly red welt across the nose bridge after a couple of hours so, for me at least, I struggle to see an improvement. I had a follow-up call with the sleep clinic last week and the lady said she was also of the view that the Vitera was not an improvement for nose bridge issues. So it is back to the Dreamwear for me...I have to caveat the above by stating I was using both the Simplus and the Vitera with a medium mask. I do have a large one, which I ordered with the Vitera and will try this in the next days. My face is not large so I am doubtful that it will help but, if it does, I will re-review.

Sorry to hear this Roger as it can be so hard for some people to find the 'right' mask. We do hear from many people who have found the Vitera to be an improvement, but unfortunately not the case for everyone.Some people really need to avoid masks that go near the nasal bridge if possible (especially those who have a more slim or boney nasal bridge and a receding jaw). It's definitely worth trying again with the DreamWear, and your comment about the noise is usually only when new to the mask and after a few nights people seem to no longer hear it. See how you get on, but another mask you could ask your clinic to try would be the Amara View without the side tubular frames where the air goes through if it does still bother you after a while.
This is my 5th mask in one year as I have struggled to get a good fit. It is a very comfortable mask for a mouth breather with a small nose and face. It does sometimes leak but not hugely. Once correctly adjusted it is easy to keep the fit as the straps can be completely removed and washed and dried without undoing. I have found the silicone of the mask by far the most comfortable as it is almost like a double concertina section. The mask holder sits on your forehead and gently pushes the mask forward to fit comfortably around the mouth. I think it will prove to be the mask that gives me the best treatment.
So pleased you've found the 'right' mask for you Marianne as we know how you've struggled from our talks in our support group 😊
Excellent product and easy to get accustomed to. Hardly any air leakage disturbance so I am sleeping much better now.Also a Great service from Hope2Sleep. Thank You
So pleased you're getting on well with the Vitera 😊
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 3 pm 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. International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.
Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase. 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.
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.
Most of the products we sell are eligible for Zero Rated VAT in the UK and Europe, and in order to qualify, you should meet the criteria for the following HMRC VAT Declaration:-
We cannot advise on individual cases, but more information can be found on HMRC’s website under notice 701/7 on the following link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-7017-vat-reliefs-for-disabled-people.
If you are purchasing on behalf of someone else who meets the above criteria, you must provide their name and address, and you will be prompted of this during the checkout process.
Customers living outside of Europe do not pay UK VAT charges, so please leave the the 'zero rate eligibility' box ticked. However, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs incurred when the products reach your own country.
If you are purchasing with the intention of re-selling any products, you are liable to pay VAT on all products so you must untick the 'zero rate eligibility' box which will add VAT to your order.
Any products that our not eligible for zero rate VAT, will not display the VAT Declaration, and VAT will be added at checkout.
