RE: Dugy40 [Doug's Therapy Thread]
If you know for certain that the events near the end of the chart were while you were awake or in sleep/wake transition then these are dismissed as SWJ or sleep/wake junk. I suggest no changes then. Looks very good.

Back to Nasal Pillows last night
Good Morning. The pressure sore on the bridge of my nose  has gotten pretty bad. the only solution i could thing of was to wear my nasal pillow mask last night.  Thats the one thats hurts My deviated septum bad. i had to pull it off my nose a bunch last night. tonight i might put a bandaid on my nose and wear my dreamwisp. i cant do the pillows again. i know they make stick on cushions but it'd be a few days before i could get any to try. one rera last night but i don't trust any of the events as real. any suggestions on getting past the pressure sore would be appreciated. ty Doug

Doug, there are CPAP mask liners designed to get the mask off your sensitive or injured nose bridge. Examples are REMzzz CPAP mask liners or Supplier #31 makes a reusable washable liner for the Resmed N20. Some members have hacked mask liner solutions using a cotton sock. There are a few threads on the topic.

Some users have had good success using a piece of mole skin over the pressure area often found in the foot supplies section of the chemist

Settings cushion mask
I was given a Dreamwear nasal cushion mask today because even though I slept great with my Dreamwisp the red sore on my nose doesn’t seem better.  I wore a band aid.  I ordered the arms for it because reviews says the head strap tends to slide up.  It’ll be here Saturday.  I put it on earlier and did a mask fit.  I layed down and moved my head side to side.  No leaks.  This might become my favorite mask. 
 Question is.  In settings it asks mask, nasal or pillows. Nothing about cushion.  I assume I need to set to pillows? Thank you Doug.

I think a setting of Pillows is correct

I'm a mouth breather, and have tried the Dreamwear full face, and a Resmed F30I. I realize these are full face vs the cushion you use, but the cushions are the same for nasal cushion masks. The Dreamwear does the same thing to me, but the Resmed is a lot more comfortable.
