Airfit P10 -growing ahi numbers and increased congestion?
Hello All,

I have been using the p10 for about 10 days now. Previous used the wisp. I really like the minimalist aspect and it seems to fit well, with no leaks.

Two complaints or should I say concerns. First congestion is much worse then with the wisp mask. I've always had some, but went to a new level the first night on with the p10. I've tried increasing my humidity setting, now at max, with no positive effects. In fact I now have rain out in my tube but still congested beyond tolerable levels.

Second is my increasing AHI numbers. The last month on the wisp I was at a .7 average. The last ten days I started at 1.2 and has steadily increased every night up to 3.1 this am. Could this be related to my congestion? Perhaps nasal pillows not my best choice for treatment?

Thanks for any thoughts or feedback..

Hi TOLsen,Did you try different sizes of pillows with your P10 and still get congestion?
If you continue to have problems with your P10, maybe the Wisp is a better mask for you.
Good luck and hang in there for more suggestions.
