[Equipment] Setting mask type on Resmed Airsense 10
#11

Background:
I am a newbie (less than 30 days) and just switched my mask from the ResMed AirFit P 10 nasal pillow for a Philips Respironics DreamWear nasal mask. I thought that I should make use of the 30 day trial period to see if less pressure on my nostrils would be a benefit. My one night conclusion is that it seems like a good switch for me.

This morning, I noticed in the Sleepy Head "Machine Settings" that my mask was "Pillows". The excellent resource on apneaboard at: Thread-All-you-wanted-to-know-about-the-ResMed-Airsense-10 shows great information on my machine (how to change the settings at resmed-airsense-10-aircurve-10-setup-info).

I made the configuration switch to "nasal" for the DreamWear -- but am wondering what difference it might make? (I'll report back with any results that I'm able to observe tomorrow).

Thanks!

I'm back with night #2 results. I switched the configuration to "nasal" and did not notice a difference. Of course this may be due entirely to my "non-observation"!

Based on comments here Thanks I'll check the difference between the settings tonight for just a few minutes each. Curious to see if I can detect a difference.

My 3rd night with a new DreamWear mask. Last night I spent about 10 minutes testing the setting on the AirSense 10 as "nasal" and "pillows". I was a tiny, tiny bit more comfortable with the nasal setting so that is what I used last night. It was very comfortable and I think that it just takes a bit of time to get used to a new mask.

This morning the myAir score would be 100 except for the multiple mask on/off's. The price to pay for testing!

The conclusion on my original question: The mask settings on the AirSense 10 make a difference. Thanks for all of the responses to help me get this far with the question. Thanks
