AirFit F10 with PR Dreamstation compatible?
I currently use Amara View and not getting good results, lots of leak, especially when I go up past 9.5 in pressure. Wanted to try another full face mask but nothing else from PR interests me. The AirFit F10 looks quite comfortable and has awesome reviews. Was wondering if tubing would be compatible between AirFit and Dreamstation. Also, I remember there's a setting to choose for Dreamstation depending on which mask you use. What setting would I pick if I were to use the AirFit? Is anyone using this combination?

The couplers for masks are all 22 millimeters. So, hose fit is certain.
The PR machine has a resistance setting. (Resmed has a mask type setting.)

I'm sure that there are people who use this machine/ mask combination.

The Resmed P10 nasal pillow mask is used by many PR machine owners.
Someone will know what resistance setting to use for the F10 mask.

I used an AirFit F10 with a DreamStation. No problem. My supplier listed it as just another option. The AirFit F10 is a great mask and has a quick disconnect fitting so you can leave the mask on for a late night bathroom trip. Just unclip the hose. This uncomplicates the process greatly. After using a Quattro fx for years I found the AirFit F10 huge improvement.

Do you remember what resistance setting you used?

Pennidragon,
Did you ever get an answer to your question regarding the resistance setting (Mask Type)?

I have the same setup you have and I am having the same difficulty determining the number to use. I have a feeling it should be set to "OFF" because I can't find a number. The options are 1 through 5 and OFF for the Mask Type. The DreamStation manual indicates this is the setting is to adjust the pressure relief based on the specific Philips Respironics mask. Each Philips Respironics mask may have a "System One" resistance control setting.

Thank you.

Hello, Pennidragon.

X1 is used for all full face masks on the DreamStation, regardless of the brand. Or, as previously stated, you can just turn the resistance settings off.

Good luck with your therapy. Sleep well.

RE: AirFit F10 with PR Dreamstation compatible?
I have used this combo of dreamstation and Airfit F10 for 3 months and love the soothing feeling of the gel double layer mask. My sleep Dr. recommended this mask first for me since the first time a year ago I was not able to be compliant with the insurance requirements. No problems this time except you have to replace the liner fairly often to prevent leaks.

The setting for mask type on the dreamstation, I keep turned off since there was no specific setting for this mask type combo. I investigated on the internet and never found that is made a difference on this dreamstation. You might find something different, but I have no problems with this feature being off.

I also have the Amara View and like the fact that I can read or watch TV but for higher pressures even around 10, I had too many leaks to get good restful sleep. Both of these masks require minimal head gear tightness however sometimes I have to tighten enough to stop leaks.

Good luck in your CPAP therapy. I have learned to love the sleep therapy where once I didn't want to go to sleep! like
