The left cone was indeed inverted. That's the nostril that has been giving me trouble.

For anyone looking for P10 or Nuance pillows, Supplier #10 has the xsmall, small and large pillows in packs of 5 for $25.00. Just go to the page for the brand of pillow you want. When you click to select the size a drop down menu will let you choose to purchase either single pillows or the 5 pack.

hmucha,
Here is a link to the supplier list that you inquired about.
http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-CPAP-Supplier-List

When referring to a supplier on the list, it's best just to use the supplier number, as we are not
allowed to post a link to a commercial site on the forum.

You might try the next size larger if you are getting a lot of leaks after using them for 10 days. They aren't really supposed to get inserted into the nostril, just make a nice seal around the rim. Seems like a lot of others have had good luck in overcoming leaks and discomfort by trying a size larger.

Protege, if you are shopping around for a supplier as well as cpap wipes, check out Supplier #1... I bought the P10 and it came with free shipping, free return insurance, and they offered a container of 60 CPAP wipes for 1 cent. These normally go for about $12. But to be honest, I just ran out of them and chose to replace with baby wipes for a couple dollars versus reordering the CPAP wipes for twelve dollars. Baby wipes seem to work just as well, though they are much thicker and a little less convenient because of that.

Well, I talked to my new supplier today, and they never heard of cpap wipes.

I also use the AirFit P10 nasal pillows and I wash them every morning with baby shampoo and let them air dry. I have found that, for me, they last about 2-1/2 weeks. I keep track of when to check them on my calendar.

while I have no data to back this up... the feeling I have is that the more often people wash their silicone mask parts, the more often they have to replace them.

I'm beginning to believe this as well. I wash my P10 pillows whenever I absolutely have nothing else to do. Currently, I am getting 6 to 9 months life out of them.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

I wash mine every few weeks, or if they don't look clean.. (sneeze residue or anything like that)... and wipe the outside most nights with a squirt of hand sanitizer and a tissue.
