I was having an issue with an itching that was happening every time I put on my P10 nasal pillows. It was keeping me up, and I tried everything to try to get it to stop. Finally I called my DME and after extensive research decided to try the cloth mask, knowing I could send it back if it did not work for me. In the past I had worn one, the original cloth one, and I liked it, but had a problem with leaking.
Well, after 2 nights, I can say, I think this one is a keeper. My AHI is 0 for both nights. Last night was:
I noticed right away that the mask was not leaking, the adjustments were pretty easy, and the mask is very comfortable, a little more than what I want on my face, but the trade off is comfort.
With the P10 my leaks were very good as well and my AHI has been running very low most nights, in the 0.????? range, highest was 1.4.
I will continue to wear it and see how this goes and let you all know. I bought the size small ADVANCED mask, you have to measure the nairs to make sure it will fit you, and if you don't measure into that distance, you must order the next size, which they say fits most people.
It's great to hear that you found a mask that you really like.
I hope it keeps working well for you, it will be interesting to see how well you do as time goes on.
I wanted to write an update on the Sleep Weaver Advanced cloth mask. So far so good. I am actually shocked how low the leakage rate is. Less than 3 for 95% of the night, which is unheard of for me. I was getting around 12 with the P10. Loved it, but it made my nose itch so badly I couldn't sleep. As far as AHI, I am extremely low, at about 0.2 for 8 hours of sleep, which is great and a few nights at 0
The only thing I don't like about it is that it's more 'stuff" on my face which I don't like, the P10 is superior there, but oh, well, ya gotta do what ya gotta do, I guess. At least if you sleep on your side, it's perfect in so far as adapting to the pillow, it stays inflated, no problem.
