[Equipment] Mask for stomach sleeper
#1
Mask for stomach sleeper
Hi, I just go into CPAP treatment

I got a Resmed Airsense 10 Auto and a Resmed F30 full face mask.

The problem is that I am a stomach sleeper and I have found impossible to fal asleep.
I am currently tring to side sleep, but getting used to the cpap and to side sleeping at the same time seems daunting.

I was wondering what kind of masks would you guys recommend for someone like me? Would a nasal pillow with top exhaust work, or would I block the hoses going up?

I am currently thinking about the resmed p30i or the dreamwear nasal pillow.

Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

RE: Mask for stomach sleeper
Stomach sleeper and former mouth breather here, but there was no chance I'd ever get used to a full face mask.  So I started taping and using a p10.  After 4 months I was able to stop using tape and still keep my mouth closed at night, which I didn't expect to happen.  Then switched to the p30i and find it much better than the p10 since it doesn't protrude outward as much.  Good luck!
