Definitely want to try one.

Put the machine BESIDE you futon and tack it up over your BELLY after it exits the covers.

A little rearranging can make you vastly more comfortable for years to come.

Nope, machine is way too noisy to sit next to me. And since I am a roller (I won't use tosser for obvious reasons) at night, the hose hanging anywhere below my head is a no-go - I tried that at the beginning and it became a real mess and a massive problem.

RE: AirFit P10
Well, I got my mask! Tonight I will try it out and let you all know, but I did fit it to the machine and adjust hose length, etc already, and I can honestly say I am impressed, I have switched out to the Large pillows for comfort (and they ARE more comfortable than the medium) and that IMHO the head strap is idiotic and needs to be replaced or modded, and fast. Also, instead of running the hose up over my head to the wall, this one might be better served with a hose stand around chest position, if only to avoid the hose hitting me in the head as I toss from one side to the other. Not a problem on the FX, since I could rig a way to attach the hose to the top strap of the head piece, something the P10 is missing. But even in the fitting I was deeply impressed with how quiet it is, and how little one notices the outflow venting. No need to rig something to direct the air up the hose as I did in the FX, so plus again and again.

Tonight will be the first test, although not a fair one, since I must take Valium and Tramadol tonight (and for the next three nights) for my bad back (something we call a Hexenschuss (witch's shot) where half the back in in heavy spasm), which will depress my breathing considerably, but it will still be interesting.

I will let you know.

RE: AirFit P10
DocWils, pleased your P10 has arrived and you are so far impressed.
Most are of us are with you and feel the need for slight modifications but are otherwise very happy with it.

Sorry about your back spasms, does not sound very nice at all.
Hope it will be back to normal in no time.

Good luck with P10.

Sleep Tight...

RE: AirFit P10
Still struggling with the P-10, I have a leak and cannot for the life of me figure out where it's coming from. I hear ABSOLUTLY NOTHING, feel nothing that is leaking when it's on. I have tried moving it back and forth, laying on my side, but I still have leaks. They are ok, but still not perfect. Median is about 4-6 and the 95% is below the red line at all times. Max, I am not worried about. I am trying adding a Velcro fastener tonight and changing to the small rather than x small pillow. Hopefully this combo will work.

If it is below the read line and it is 4 - 6, then why are you concerned about leaks?

Let it be.

RE: AirFit P10
Marnid,

I have been struggling with my leaks also but if I had yours, I would relax and get on with my life.My leaks normally bottom out at around 10 l/min but the high side does not always stay within the 24 l/min target. For a few days I was able to get the last half of the night down to 0 and everything else looking pretty good. Then after a few great days My leaks were all over the place last night. I am not that concerned about it. Curious maybe but not concerned. I am not trying to get 0 l/min leaks. I just wanted to make sure that there was not a constant leak of around 10 l/min that was constant like a hole in the tubing or something else like that. Since I was able to reach 0 flr a reasonable period of time I feel that I do not have a constant problem. If my leaks were bottoming out at 2-4 l/min I would not have been trying to drive them down any lower at all.

Please relax and enjoy your success and do not sweat the small stuff. You are doing great!

RE: AirFit P10
I don't understand the leak language you are talking about.
I thought we just had to worry about if our leaks were over 24 in the 95%.
Some nights I am able to score zeros and then I will get a whopping 14 and then back down to 8, 5,3,6,0,13, I have even had an 18 but I figure if they are under the 24 I am ok.
Is there something else I should be worrying about?
I have always thought Marnid that your leaks have been good.
I don't think it's the name of the game to get no leaks, is it?

Sleep Tight...

RE: AirFit P10
You're right Gabby. No leaks is probably overachieving, and possibly due to having a mask too tight, etc. Some leaks should be expected and are just fine.

Better sleep is the name of the game
At times I can sleep through massive leak, other times a tiny leak would disturb my sleep especially if coming any close to my eyes
