OK a couple of questions for all you P10 experienced users. I am trying out this mask and so far so good but how long do the pillows last? Also how long do you get from the headgear before it needs replacing?
With only a limited time using the P10 I am liking it but I would like to know the time frame of use for the expendables.
Hi kmar92, good to hear you are liking the P10.
I will be interested in your answers about the pillows as well.
I only seem to get about 4-6 weeks out of a pillow but a friend of mine gets twice as long!
I have been using the same headgear since February, I have adjusted it to make it smaller for my head and it is all still working fine.
Good luck with your equipment.
I can probably use small pillows for 3 months. The last month they may show some wear, and my AHI may creep up a few tenths of a point.
The headgear is fine for about this long as well -- but even then when it gets loose, it probably actually fits BETTER.
For me, the mask feels and works best throughout the night when it is a little looser than I would CHOOSE to set it at bedtime.

I use my pillows until my leak numbers begin to rise. That might be two or three weeks. Then, I simply reach into my bowl of masks and get another set to replace those worn out. Not being one to enjoy throwing stuff away, I wash and dry the old ones, and put them in the bowl.
Actually, I haven't had to buy any new masks for a very long time.
