Mask type for active side sleepers
I have Had good success with resmed f10 and great success with p10.

The f10 is a FFM which floats on your face with an air cushion and has 4 anchors so it's pretty forgiving if you move about too much.

The P10 is amazing. I wear it fairly loose and Most nights I have 0 (zero) unintentional leaks.

How does the P10 compare with other masks on the effort required to exhale? I wish I had taken notes on the masks I tried but I found the nasal pillow I tried at my sleep study very hard to exhale through. I ended up getting the resmed Mirage FX nasal mask but I feel like I'm constantly worried about my position knocking it off.

jspence, the P10 supplies pressure directly, and people sensitive to exhale pressure can feel uncomfortable. Your machine provides up to 3 cm exhale pressure relief, so you could use EPR to deal with that. I'm personally not aware of an exhale effort using 3 cm of relief, and our pressure is not very different.
