[CPAP] Poll on ResMed N30i mask
RE: Poll on ResMed N30i mask
I'm content with my AirFit F20. Then again, that's the only one I've ever used. I'm a mouth-breather and can't stand the thought of having air forced up my nose.  Annoyed-and-disappointed

RE: Poll on ResMed N30i mask
Yes I plan to buy one of these masks in the near future. I have the DreamWear and my only complaint with it is being able to keep a seal with it. From others comments/reviews it sounds like this mask has it all; is comfy, has the hose attachment at the top of the head with a quick release and is said to stay pretty secure on people's nose even when rolling over in bed. Unfortunately for me, all CPAP purchases are out of pocket as I reached my private insurance lifetime cap a few years ago.

RE: Poll on ResMed N30i mask
In response to my "Yes" answer on the poll. The Respironics DreamWear was comfortable but leaked when I slept on my side. Therefore, it appears that the N30i may have a stronger construction that will work well for side-sleepers. You takes your money and your chances.

RE: Poll on ResMed N30i mask
I bought it because I was curious.  I’ve only used the p10 mask and wanted to see how I’d like one with the hose attachment on top.
I find it very noisy compared with the P10 and it frequently slides away from my nose when I’m turning.  I’m a side sleeper.  It also seems to press against my nose uncomfortably.  I don’t sleep well with it and then when i switch back to the P10, which is so much more comfortable. 
Since I  spent 139 Canadian dollars for it, I want to get my money’s worth, but I’m not loving it.  And, my insurance doesn’t want to pay for it, either.

No. I have been using the Dreamwear Nasal cushion and I'm not having any problems with mask fit and I'm pretty happy with it. It could be a little noisy but from reports the N30i seems to be to. There are also reports that N30i causes a bit irritation in the nose. I also like the interchangeable options of the Dreamwear that is is not currently available in the N30i.

RE: Poll on ResMed N30i mask
I just got the N30i on Thursday...by far, my favorite mask out of all of the ones i've tried. I was swapping back and forth between the Resmed N20 and the Phillips Dreamwear...i liked the dreamwear...but in my opinion, the N30i is so much better...the fit, and the comfort. I like the rigid nose brace with the soft cushion...it doesn't slip side to side when I lay on my side....the frame is much more comfortable and it is quiet. I like the the typical Resmed quick disconnect elbow on top. This is my new nightly mask.
