A newbie nasal pillow question
Is it normal to feel air coming out of the exhalation vent during inhalation? In other words, my APAP machine is blowing air into my nose AND out of the nasal pillow's exhalation port at the same time.

Yes there should always be airflow exiting through the exhalation port.
