The P10 blows directly into nasal cavity which one sleep tech told me can affect nervous system. That is a potential reason for the centrals.

The centrals appear to occur during sleep transition so probably nothing to be concerned about unless they get worse.

RE: Nasal Pillows vs Nasal Masks, which worked best for you?
Sorry to say this guys, but P10 didn't work out for me. It wakes me up too many times when I'm trying to fall asleep. I tried for 3 days and I developed anxiety with it from waking me up too many times. These masks really causes anxiety from bad experiences. I'm afraid they make shove too much air in me and wake up gasping for air. All these experienes makes me view CPAP therapy negatively.

Looks like F20 is the best I can do. AHI isn't stable, but I get better sleep than any other masks. It just feels the safest, but Ido wish they can be designed better for side-sleeping and for sleep masks.

did you switch to nasal pillows on your machine menu? I use less air with pillows than with a full face mask for sure. we have the same machine and it will automatically lower pressure in pillow mode.

I did, and something about it wakes me up when I doze off. It repeatedly happends multipe times until I finally fall asleep. Sleep disturbance is not good for anybody. This is what I hate about CPAP. I tried almost all masks and they cause issues.
