CPAP mask recommendation

CPAP mask recommendation
I'm about a month into using my Resmed Airsense 10 and it seems to be working out well.  However, I have the Phillips gel pillows mask and it is irritating my nose and making it sore.

I am thinking about switching and trying out one of the nasal masks that just rest under your nose.  Who has tried out this type of mask?  I know Resmed makes one and Phillips.  Trying to decide which one to try.  I think it would be more comfortable for sure, but wondering about leaks, etc.

Thanks for any input anyone has to give!
Thanks

RE: CPAP mask recommendation
If you want to try out an under the nose "cradle" mask, might I suggest DreamWear from Phillips (With the New Headgear) over the ResMed N30i. Both have similar designs, but the DreamWear works better for me

Here is my original comparison... http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...=dreamwear

Hopefully, this will work for you. Many of us had quite a battle with trial-and-error testing to find a mask that works for us.

I've got the ResMed N30i and the cushions for P30i that fit the N frame. I've only had limited use with it while my therapy went off the cliff.

A 3rd company to consider is Fisher & Paykel. I've yet to try their nasal masks, but the full face Vitera is great. Just another option with the F&P brand.
