P10 modification, cures air starvation at low pressure.

P10 modification, cures air starvation at low pressure.
   
I sliced off the tops of a medium P10 pillow as shown, using a new single edge razor blade. This opened the holes to allow more air to pass. 

Breathing was much easier, leaks did not increase, slept much better and AHI was as low as ever.
CPAP is a journey like “The Wizard of Oz”. It’s a long slow journey. You will face many problems and pick up many friends along the way. Just because you reach the poppies, it doesn’t mean you are in Kansas.

I use the P10 Airfit also. I started out with a medium, but later founded that the large performs better with less leak. Why don't you just use the "large".

Actually, I do use the large for that very reason but the medium fits better with less leaks. Once I have sufficient data with the medium I plan to do the same with the large and a lower pressure.
