Need help with mask setting please
#1
Hi, I'm new to this board and new to CPAP.

I've got a Philips DreamstationCPAP Auto. The respiratory therapist gave me a AirFit P10 nasal pillow mask. It didn't work out so well because the it fit really loose and kept falling off.

He then switched me to a Philips Respiration Pico. It kind of works but the leaks are killing me. The leak wakes me up because it usually starts bugging my eyes big time.

I'm going back to the nasal pillow but I need to know what to set the mask type to on the Dreamstation. It says to set it to swift but the DS only has numbers.

Help!

A general rule of thumb I use is: large pillow- X1, medium- X2, small- X3 and petite-X4.

You may find that when using a "non" respironics mask, the best setting is 0 (off).
