SleepWeaver® Élan – Available in 3 Sizes

SleepWeaver® Élan

The SleepWeaver® Élan soft-cloth nasal PAP mask features exhalation holes under the mask to match up with your natural nasal exhalation. The mask is angled so the exhalation doesn’t bother you or your bed partner.

Like our other masks, the SleepWeaver Élan incorporates the revolutionary Circadiance soft-cloth technology that quietly inflates like a balloon to create an airtight seal. The breathable, non-allergenic mask is comfortable—and it eliminates leaks, pressure points, sore spots, and pinching. Our “loose fit” prevents strap marks, and the open-face headgear design accommodates eyeglasses and allows virtually unrestricted vision—great for people who like to fall asleep while reading or watching TV!

First time users of SleepWeaver Élan are encouraged to buy a Starter Kit. You can buy a Mask/Cushion, Headgear, Tether Strap, and Feather Weight Tube and a mask/headgear combo separately.

How often should SleepWeaver Élan be washed?

The SleepWeaver Élan should be washed on an as needed basis to maintain the cleanliness that is desired. Cleaning the mask every 1 – 3 days will be sufficient for most people.

How should SleepWeaver Élan be washed?

For home use, SleepWeaver Élan should be cleaned by hand washing with a mild nonabrasive detergent in warm (not hot) water until visibly clean. Rinse well with drinking quality water and allow to air dry out of direct sun- light. You may keep the swivel attached during cleaning or you may remove it and clean it separately. The headgear should be hand washed weekly. *HANG DRY ONLY (Do NOT dry mask and headgear in the dryer)

In what position can the tubing be run when using SleepWeaver Élan?

SleepWeaver Élan allows the tube to be routed in any direction according to the patient’s choice, including over the head. The Starter Kit includes an optional tether strap that can be used to connect the Feather Weight Tube to the headgear when the hose is routed over the head. Some customers also prefer using a hose clip to secure their tube onto their clothes. View our accessories at www.circadiance.com

What is the warranty for SleepWeaver Élan?

Circadiance warrants that your SleepWeaver Élan Soft Cloth Nasal PAP mask and headgear shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of purchase by the initial consumer.

Do you have a mask guarantee?

If you, the patient, purchased one of our SleepWeaver products (SleepWeaver Advance, SleepWeaver Anew, or SleepWeaver Élan) through your Home Care Provider or an Internet Reseller and do not like the products, you can return it to the location where it was purchased within 30 days of initial fitting or of receiving the product.

Do I have to use the tether strap?

The optional tether strap helps to control the hose when it is worn “over the head”. The user should decide if this helps improve their sleep.

From what material is the mask made?

The cloth is the same material used to make winter ski clothing. A portion of the mask that contacts the skin contains polyester, nylon, and elastane. The cloth material is “breathable” meaning that the material wicks moisture and heat away from the user’s skin. You should have no concerns about skin allergies or irritation with this mask. The headgear consists of polyurethane foam, nylon, and lycra. It does NOT contain Mercapto- benzothiazole or Mercapto MX. The plastic swivel is made of polycarbonate. Please be aware that there are trace quantities of BPA in all polycarbonate products. The Feather Weight Tube is made of hytrel and EVA.

Does the cloth mask contain latex?

No. The mask is not made from natural rubber latex.

Why can’t I get a SleepWeaver Élan Starter Kit in pink, leopard or camouflage?

To reduce the number of versions that home care providers stock, we provide the starter kits in the two most popular colors. You can select any of our colors including beige, blue, pink, camouflage or leopard when you order your replacement mask/cushions.

What is recommended pressure for SleepWeaver Élan?

SleepWeaver Élan has been tested and approved for use between 4 – 20 cm H2O on PAP, Bi-Level and Auto-titrating PAP systems.

Does SleepWeaver Élan have an exhalation vent?

Yes. There are a series of small holes in the lower side of the cloth cushion that provide exhaust for the exhaled CO2. The exhaust rate is comparable to most old style hard plastic PAP masks

Can I use SleepWeaver Élan with my existing PAP system?

Yes. SleepWeaver Élan works with all standard PAP, Bi-Level and Auto-titrating PAP systems.

Can I use SleepWeaver Élan if I use supplemental oxygen?

Yes. An oxygen fitting should be placed in line with the hose at the connection to the PAP machine.

Will SleepWeaver Élan seal better than SleepWeaver Advance?

The design of SleepWeaver Élan is different from SleepWeaver Advance, but both utilize zzzephyr seal technology. It will depend on the individual which SleepWeaver they feel is best suited for them. Whatever mask you choose, you will experience the soft, quiet and comfortable fit of a SleepWeaver cloth mask.

Are there any interchangeable pieces for Advance and Élan?

The Feather Weight Tube is interchangeable. The SleepWeaver Feather Weight Tube works with SleepWeaver Anew, SleepWeaver Élan, SleepWeaver Advance and all PAP Masks that use a standard 22 mm hose connection.

Does Élan have the zzzephyr seal?

The same technology as used in the zzzephyr seal is included in SleepWeaver Élan interface. Specifically, the interface material is elastic allowing the mask to inflate like a balloon and create a leak free seal with no pressure points.

Do you sell through Home Care Companies?

Yes. We sell through all Home Care Companies. If your company does not carry SleepWeaver Élan, please have them contact us so that we can set them up as a dealer. Alternatively, you can contact us and give us the name of your Home Care Company so that we can have our sales representative call on them.

Do you sell through any National DME chains?

Yes. We sell through national chains like Lincare, Apria, American Home Patient, Rotech, Walgreens, AeroCare, and many more. Please visit us online at www.circadiance.com to find a dealer near you.

Do you sell your mask outside of the US?

Yes. We can sell our products in countries for which we have regulatory approval. The list of approved countries is always growing; please contact us for more information.

Can I sleep on my stomach while wearing the mask?

Yes. The air pressure in the mask will keep the mask inflated without pressure points. The mask continues to allow CO2 exhalation as long as a portion of the exhalation holes are exposed.

Can I read or watch TV while wearing the mask?

Yes. There is nothing in the field of view from the mask or headgear. This allows you to wear glasses and read or watch TV while wearing the mask.

I have dentures. Can I still wear the mask?

Yes. SleepWeaver Élan can be worn by patients with dentures.

Can I use SleepWeaver Élan if I have a broken nose of deviated septum?

Yes. The pliable nature of SleepWeaver Élan allows it to conform to the patient’s facial anatomy even if it is not symmetrical.

Kenneth G.

George W.
Palm Springs, FL

“The SleepWeaver Élan is very comfortable and it’s the only mask that actually works for me. I can finally sleep the entire night while wearing my CPAP mask.”
David S.
Avon Lake, OH

"The Élan is absolutely the most comfortable mask I have ever used. I sleep on my stomach and my face is usually smashed into the pillow at night. No other mask will allow this sleeping position except for the Élan. I have no problems with air leaks and I sleep better than I ever have! You have to learn to wear it loosely, as the more you tighten it, the more problems you will have. Once I learned that, I knew this was the mask for me. It is so nice to finally be able to sleep like I do, comfortably!"
Gloria D, OH

September 2013:

“I have been using a Bipap for 15 years and this is by far the best mask I have ever used. The comfort level is so much better than a hard mask I could not believe I had not tried it earlier. Great product!”
Greg R.
Eatonville, WA

"I've used a lot of different CPAP masks/nasal pillows over the years and this is the first mask that is truly comfortable to sleep in. Surprisingly I have to use the "large" mask versus regular or small masks in order to get a good seal but the mask and headband are extremely comfortable to wear. I have almost no lines in the morning from the headband. I highly recommend watching the DVD that comes with the product to understand the proper way to adjust the mask to your face. I don't feel like I'm suffocating when I first put the mask on; there's always plenty of air and it's also quiet when I exhale. I am usually fast asleep within 60 seconds of putting the mask on and I am able to sleep a full 8 hours. I am so happy that I discovered the SleepWeaver Elan; I can't image ever using a silicone mask again."
Goldie C, HI

“As a side/stomach sleeper, the SleepWeaver Élan is the most comfortable mask that I've ever used. I never feel claustrophobic when wearing it and I like the fact that the headband is soft and keeps the mask in place, with a good seal, and I don't wake!”
Goldie C.
Kalaheo, HI

"I LOVE!! LOVE!! This new mask better than ALL the masks I've used EVER. The soft cloth seals off perfectly & doesn't leak if I turn over either. I've used it now for a few months & haven't changed my thoughts at all and am glad that it doesn't leave a large mark on my face."
Cheryl S, OK

“I like the mask because it holds the air well, and it is more comfortable than a plastic mask.”
Edward M.
Fayetteville, NC

“Was losing vision from the old mask with air blowing in the eyes. This mask does not blow air, the headgear is more comfortable and the swivel prevents air being cut off.”
Lewis S.
Benton, ME

“The Élan SleepWeaver Mask is the best mask I have used so far. It is comfortable, lightweight; it seals well and doesn't leave marks on my face.”
Linda C.
Australia

August 2013:

"I did opt to get the smaller mask...it comes with a regular & large mask. I sometimes have a wee bit of an issue with an air leak at the top of my nose but once I get that sorted it feels like I'm not even wearing a mask. My husband appreciates that there is no exhaust air blowing in his face all night. We both love the QUIET."
Liza T, CA

“The mask is very comfortable; I did have some air leaks but after adjusting the mask it was much better. Watching the video also helped with getting rid of some of the air leaks.”
Pauline G.
Colchester, CT

“Once I figured out how to seal it, it was very comfortable. Tried others and could not wear them more than a couple of hours.”
David E.
Deming, NM

“Takes a bit to get the proper fit as to not over tighten the straps for air leakage..very comfortable to wear , I love to snuggle into my pillow which I am able to do with this mask ...hubby says I don't snore as much...head strap does slip a little at nite time but when I wake I just readjust the head piece and back to sleep right away..."
Jan W, ON

“After experiencing difficulties with several other CPAP masks, I was lucky enough to be sent an Elan. It is wonderful, and the problem of "leakage" is almost non-existent. I recommend it to fellow CPAP-users.”
John J.
Denton, MD

"Finally, I have a comfortable mask that allows me to wear my eyeglasses without any obstruction. No "morning face" from the headgear. Too bad this wasn't available 14 years ago!"
Bonnie S, NY

"Finally, I have a comfortable mask that allows me to wear my eyeglasses without any obstruction. No "morning face" from the headgear. Too bad this wasn't available 14 years ago!"
Bonnie S, NY

July 2013:

“So far the SleepWeaver Elan mask is working very well. It is comfortable with no pressure marks on the nose as with standard silicone masks which is affording me a full night’s sleep.”
Neil W.
United Kingdom

"I like to smoosh my face partially into the pillow and this allows for that. I also like that it provides a light, free feeling without having plugs up my nose or a constricting mask on my face. It blows up like a hot air balloon and the only thing you feel is the straps, which are no better or worse than any other headgear I've tried. I've used most of the nasal pillow type masks and they were OK but not quite what I was looking for. This one would not be for everyone but it is great to have no pressure at all in or around the nose. You do feel a lot of air blowing around your face, but I find it refreshing.”
Lynne D, ON

"It was so different than my former mask made of hard and soft plastic. The Elan is very comfy it at times left me unsure it was securely placed, but the proof is in how rested I felt...and no more sore spots from the plastic!"
Michael A, NY

"I sleep on my side and I couldn't be happier. The ELAN is even quieter than my previous masks."
Bryan G, WA

“This product solved all of my condensation/rain out issues with all other masks!!!! Great product...I highly recommend this cloth mask as opposed to the silicone one."
Joseph F, TN

“First and only mask that I can wear!! Love this light cloth mask!!!
Peggy M.
Milledgeville, GA
