Best Nasal Pillow Mask?
#21
I did use a Swift FX pillow mask in sleep clinic when I first started. It had quite thick plastic support pieces on each side of the mask and these tended to hurt a lot after I had slept on them for a while. Other than that the pillow type worked well for me (it was my first try at using a apnea machine however). Perhaps newer designs do not have that problem?

Happy New Year 2018 everyone!

I'm going to paint my P10 black and mount a laser to it.

I wear the Swift FX after a long time with the nasal mask (True Blue). I am very pleased with the FX. Comfortable fit, stays in place and no leaks. What specifically makes the P10 superior to the FX? Looks like they are 95% the same other than the strap and vent.

Brevida!  Was using Sleepweaver Advance and Elan before.  Loved them, but getting the straps right was sometimes a pain, and they were also a bit of a hassle to wash unless you kept them attached to the straps.

Decided to try the Brevida (my first* nasal pillow so I can't compare it to the P10 etc) because it looked comfortable and the price was right.  Have had them for about 4 or 5 months now. They're great.  Because of the way they seal, you can leave the straps pretty loose.  Pretty quiet with the filter, no leaks after getting used to the thing, and super easy to clean.  Had my first 0 AHI day with them, too! Two thumbs up.

*Edit: Just realized it's not my first - used the Aloha for a short time but wasn't thrilled about it

I like the Pilaro Q. Used it for some years. I tried the Brevida but the AHI went through the roof. Bought another Q.
