F, N, P... oh my!
#1
By golly, I figured out the code!!!!!

F10... P20... N20... P10...

I was getting them all jumbled up in my brain. 

But I finally figured out what the letters mean!!!!

F = full face mask

N = nasal mask

P = nasal pillow

Boy. There should be a CPAP 101 class!  LOL

It's elementary my dear Hydrangea! Actually for someone that does not use a Resmed mask, I think you've cracked the code. If only the other mysteries in life could be revealed so easily. Smile

Good job on the "figuring" because otherwise I would have been clueless.   Wink

Thanks, all! I was pretty excited to finally figure out *why* the F10 and P10 are named so similarly, but aren't at all similar.

Glad I can help you, too, GrammaBear.
