Need advice for the quietest full face mask

Need advice for the quietest full face mask
Hi guys,

I need some advice for the quietest full face mask when I have the flu. Any suggestions?

I am currently using airfit P10 and Dreamstation Go Auto CPAP. I am quite happy with P10. However, it will not work when my nose is congested.

The ResMed F20 is by far the quietest full face mask I have used.

I also have a congestion issue. I can second the recommendation for the F-20. Be aware there there are two styles of cushions that are interchangeable on the same headgear.
One, the AirFit has a silicone seal, and the AirTouch model has a memory foam seal. I have only used the AirFit. I have used a Dreamwear full face and the Resmed equivalient, the F30I. I had a lot of leaks with both. I think part of that was I was using the wrong size according to the fit gauge for the Resmed. I really didn't like the cushion under my nose. Both were quiet. I use a Resmed Autoset 10, and had used a Dreamstation before I got my own machine. My wife says the Resmed is quieter. Someday, I would like to try a Liberty Mirage mask, but am not sure how quiet it is.

I started out SA Therapy using the F20 AirFit. Can't speak to how quiet it may be for you, but for me, it was okay. 

I'm currently using an F30 AirFit, and it too, is on the quiet side.

I use the F&P Simplus, and have for several years..  I have also trialled the F&P Vitera, said to be its successor.  Both seem very quiet to me, although the Simplus seems to fit my face better than the Vitera.  I would think that either would be worth a check.  Supplier #26 has a very liberal mask return policy, so that takes away much of the risk.

Good luck in your search.

You will be surprise how well the P10 blows through any congestion I haven’t used any thing else for the past three years, if your congested put on the mask and relax and breath in a couple of miniutes the congestion will be gone
