Mask for side sleepers
During my sleep study it was determined that I had to use a full face mask. So the past 9 years I have always used a UltraMirage with a cpap pressure of 15 . Are there any newer mask that are regarded as better than my current one for side sleepers less prone to leaks etc. keeping in mind my rather high pressure . And can I request a different mask from my DME or does this require a new prescription ?

I have a high pressure. I sleep on my back and on my side. I wake up every day on my side and I like the position. Airfit P10 is my mask and I love it.
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.

Airfit P10 with a chin strap is the best I have used. I am a side sleeper and usually had to readjust masks after switching sides at night. The P10 never wakes me up with leaks.

Same here. No problems with P10 mask, and I toss and turn alot during the night, but mostly side sleep.

You cannot go wrong with ResMed Activa LT nasal mask, perfect for side sleepers
Super quiet, easy to to fit, maintain a good seal during tossing/turning and pressure changes
With masks, can be tricky to recommend, ask DME for a trial and if buying online, get the the insurance return
