RE: Outstanding DME!
Per the OPs request, I have moved the "what do you do with a cold" posts to their own thread. You can find them here:
http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...al-Pillows

I think I moved them all? Or did you also want the "nasal irritation" ones moved, too? I can do that. I have the means. I have the powah!

Oh powahful one, yes...please go ahead and move the nasal irritation posts to, maybe, a thread called "nasal irritation with pillows." (Didn't even realize those were in this thread too!)

Thank you for your kind assistance.5

Per the precious OP's request again because she kept hijacking her own freakin' thread, I have moved yet more posts to yet another thread of their own. Oh-jeez

The posts regarding the nasal irritation (including the discussion in the like button stuff) has been moved here:

Someday you might know what that means Tongue

Looks like the best DME on the planet gave you the best mask on the planet Dielaughing

Galactus, you are absolutely correct!! The P10 pillows are amazing. No waking during the night because my pillow knocked them askew as I turned over or barely moved my head. The exhaled air is diffuse enough that the sound against my blanket doesn't awaken me...you name it, I think they're the best.

However....I think I need the chin strap. I'm going to call my DME tomorrow and have my RT take a look at my results. Not only does the leak rate look too high, but my AHI these past few nights has been above 5. What's up with that?
