Help with my settings
I will be either picking up today a swift fx or P10 so I know that I will need to change my mask setting to pillow right? My numbers have been good with the Quattro Air AhI events 0.6, pressure 9, leak 19 however looking forward to the freedom of not having a FFM. My settings are Mode autoset,max press 13,min 6, ramp off , EPR on, EPR full time, EPR leveln3, Humidity 4, Tube slimline, AB filter no, essentials on,smart start off, pressure units cmh2o, temp F. I have my booklet for my machine however not sure if I need to make any setting changes now that I'm moving to the pillow mask!
Thanks!!

RE: Help with my settings
In theory, you should not need to do anything except change the mask setting. The nasal pillow masks have less dead-space and apply pressure more directly to the airway, so generally people on auto machines, transitioning to nasal pillows find their median and 95% pressures drop a bit. Anyway, you have an Autoset, so just leave it where it is and allow some time to adapt to the new interface. If you need to make changes, wait until you know why, and what your objective is.

The FX and Airfit P10 are different designs. If you want quiet and minimalist, the p10 is the choice. The FX has a more stable and versatile headgear.

Change "Essentials" to "Plus", and the "period" in the sleep report, just below "More Info" to 1 day
Every time, you unplug the machine, the period changes to 1 month

RE: Help with my settings
Good luck,

I just transitioned from an FX pillow to a P-10. I love the pillows. I did have to go to a chinstrap, but no biggie. Much gain in my particular therapy, so it was well worth it.

During my trial/adjustment period the last few weeks, I had been doing a "daily", then as I was making adjustments, I went to a "weekly". Now that I'm almost done, I'm going to a 30 day period, and I will start downloading my MEM card every 7 days instead of every day.
