Resmed AirFit N10 Review
I just joined this site and would really appreciate reviews of equipment, not just complaints. I was convinced to try the N10 and was very disappointed for the following reasons:
1. Noise
2) Straps are too narrow and slippery causing magnets to slide off.
3) Cushion frequently falls out of nose piece. Nubs should be larger.
4) Design causes excessive pressure on the back of my head just above neck creating a headache.

Thus, this is not a product I recommend. I went back to my Mirage Activa LT which I find barely acceptable. The manufacturer made major modifications in this headgear without changing any of the product numbers, so it might be unpredictable regarding what you'll get when you order.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Hi Parkdoc,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
I liked some atributes to the N10 such as the magnetic clips, I didn't have too much trouble with the headgear or the main frame fitting me either.
What I didn't care for was the cushion. The smallest one was too big and it moved and caused leaks, particularly into my eyes, and as my pressure increased through the night, it was noisy.
Good luck to you in finding a mask that will work for you.
Hang in there for more responses to your post and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.

Since "dis be da complaint forum", it is noisy!!!

Please put the Eson or Wisp nose pads with quick release connector on it and it would be put all other nasal masks out of business. Love the headgear with the magnetic clips.
