Best Nasal Pillow Mask?
#1
Question 
Best Nasal Pillow Mask?
I have been using the Swift FX for Her for many years, but am wondering if a better design has been developed recently?  I've looked through the products reviews here and see many like the P10...

Quieter, lighter, less air blowing on you. Resistance is futile.

I left the Swift FX over 5-years ago in favor of the Airfit P10.

Airfit P10! I just switched to this after MANY years of using a Mirage Swift II mask. I've been on cpap for 20 years.

Tried the P10 and didn't like it, but I only tried it at the Sleep Clinic, the other option I had was the FX, which I liked better.

Only way to find out is try one.

Dreamwear for me. Tried the P10 but it irritated my nostrils.

Dreamwear leaked like a sieve and was super noisy.

The p10 is so quiet. Picking the right size pillows is crucial plus getting the right tension on the strap. In my case I had to use the little clips to make the band fit tight enough. Even with it loose though it's pretty leak free. I think a lot of irritation comes from having it too tight.

    • Airfit P10 is light, has exhaust port diffuser
      • Protip: Try one size larger pillows.
    • Dreamwear nasal cushion, connects on top of head, so no hose in your face
      • Protip: a good alternative to relieve occasional irritation from other nasal pillow mask nostril irritation
    • F&P Brevida (light, just started trying this one out)
      • Protip: Like the P10, has a exhaust port diffuser which makes it super quiet, but also stays in place better since it wraps around the sides of your nose a bit, so pull the edges out slightly before applying to nose.
