Any side effects?
I use a nasal mask (no mouth leaks) and I wondered if a nasal pillow would be less intrusive and allow easier movements while sleeping.
Is that so?
My concerns might be that, perhaps, I could have soreness or nasal irritation caused by the air flow, and the risk of ot keeping the nasal pillow in place when I move during sleep.
Otherwise it seems a much lightier and simpler device.

I initially used a nasal mask, then tried a ffm, and finally against the advice of my DME went to the P10 pillow mask. Best thing I have done for my cute little body since .......... well, just since.

Because of the minimalistic nature of the pillows, because of the almost complete silence of the exhaust of the P10, and for lots of other becauses I very highly recommend them.

In fact, it is only a matter of time until everyone uses the P10.

Resistance is futile.
Many thanks, I'll give the P10 a try.

Hi archangle!
Thanks for you suggestion re lowering pressure.
I'll give it a try and see what happens.

By the way what is the differece between the S9 VPAP Adapt and the Air Curve SV?
Both claim to be adequate to treat CSA's.

The S9 VPAP Adapt is the prior generation ASV machine.
The algorithm likely gets better with each generation.
