I'm only a month into therapy and have been using nasal masks. First an Eson (worked fine but too bulky) then a Wisp. I like the Wisp, but if I can do more minimal, it would be great. Work trying anyway.
The P10 will be my last chance to try a new style for a while (without going out of pocket) so I'd like to maximize the fit.
Also, can someone remind me what the recommended (lanolin?) lotion that is used. And how/why?
Thanks for sharing your knowledge-base.
I have the AirFit P 10 , and I love it!
It is really much quieter than the one I tested before (DreamWear); I also have almost no leaks. I was a bit concern about irritation in the nostrils. Some people said on this forum to put a little Lanolin( Lansinoh) in your nose and I find that this tip was very helpful for me. I was first fitted with an XS pillow; it was a bit difficult to breathe, but not knowing much about it, I thought that it was what it was suppose to be... Again, after reading post on the forum (so much info in here), I ask the RT for the other sizes. Last night, I tried the medium one, OMG! What a difference it made!
It is so much easier to breathe in. I had a WONDERFUL day today, energy was there, it is so amazing! long time no see It would be a good idea to ask at start for all sizes, thus you can choose which one is best for you, because I think it may make a difference in your treatment, as I notice it today!
That it is a good mask for me, I also find quite easy to keep it all night long, isn’t the purpose of a good CPAP treatment!
Good nights sleep to everyone!
