[Equipment] Changing a ResMed N30i Into A P30i

RE: Changing a ResMed N30i Into A P30i

Very happy with the comfort and convenience of essentially having two masks. My only nit is one that several forums have documented; the hard plastic "frame" that supports the cushion/pillows, is sometimes irritating to my upper lip.

Next go-round, I'm looking at the Respironics DreamWear. Does anyone have experience using both?

Hi!
I had the DreamWear 3 times. I liked it because it was comfortable. However, I found the frame moved around (maybe because of my bald spot!)
I kept it that long by modifying the headgear. I took the velcro strap from the first mask and added it to my second mask. That seemed to help prevent leakage.
I quit using this mask due to irritation that became a bump on my nostril. That got more serious; I had it surgically removed. Not fun. I blamed it on the mask; maybe that's not fair.
I went on to a ResMed N20. I've had 3 of those so far. That's about 1-1/2 years of accumulated use. Observation: this mask dosn't last as long as I like. 6 months is stretching it. (No pun intended. But it does apply! The headgear grows, or stretches.)

Captainsteubing I complete agree! My F20 and F30 are definitely put aside unless I have a bad cold then I’ll probably use the F20. By the way if your pillows seam a bit stiff or painful soak them in hot soapy water for about 45 mins and your problem will be solved. It worked great for me. I had a burning sensation on my nostrils and after I soaked them I don’t even know they are on when I wake up anymore. Best mask I’ve tried so far. Medium cushions btw with hardly any leaks. Small and large won’t seal properly

Now if mask innovation makes them invisible, form fitting, as light as air, and wireless er hoseless, then we're talking!

Indeed, oh what a joyous day that would be! One day, one day!
