Hi FrankNichols,
You’re right, the P10 is pillows and the F10 is a full-face mask, but we refer to all of them as masks. Hope this clears up the confusion just a bit.

You are correct. The P10 is a nasal pillow mask and the F10 is a full face mask. The N10 is a nasal mask. The Nuance is a nasal pillow mask and the Simplus is a full face mask. The Amara View is a hybrid mask (part nasal pillow, part full face mask).

All are considered "masks" as are all others in the same categories.

Thank you, I figured the nasal masks and full face masks were called masks, I guess I was just thinking the pillows would be called that. It will all make sense someday Smile

The vents should be cleaned frequently; and a soft brush like a tooth brush should be used.

the vent on the p10 is a large plastic mesh on either side of the hose connection, not a ring.

resmed recommends hot soapy water and a toothbrush to keep the mesh clean. there's a video from them on youtube about cleaning, or check the manual.

A point that might come up when scrubbing that fine mesh with 'soapy water'. If you are in a hard water area (like I am), and you use real soap (like Ivory), you will get scum in the water and probably on the mesh. And the wash bowl, and... I would recommend using a mild hand or dish detergent rather than soap.

I wash the mesh once a week with dawn dish liquid. Use a soft "baby" toothbrush to scrub the mesh, then rinse, rinse, rinse.... Then I do a final rinse with distilled water.
Shake it like crazy and let dry. Looks like new, and never have problems. Smile
