Changing masks
(07-12-2013, 04:56 PM)RonWessels Wrote: As I tried to clarify in my subsequent post, I don't doubt that there are people that use nasal pillows at high pressures. However, people on this board are probably not necessarily a representative sample of all CPAP users. A YouTube poster who posts video reviews of CPAP masks and machines, and who implies that he is either a doctor or DME technician and therefore sees many many CPAP patients, claims that his experience is that nasal pillows at high pressures do not seem to be favoured by the majority of patients he sees.

I have no first-hand knowledge in the matter, other than I was able to acclimate to my nasal mask before I acclimated to some nasal pillows, so I ended up giving up trying since I had something that worked.

If you ask a question of 10 different DMEs, you'll get 10 different answers, of which 5 or so are based on self interest, not the patient's best interest.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
