[Product Review] Pad-A-Cheek Airfit P10 barrel cozy
#1
I purchased this product in an attempt to reduce condensation in my Airfit P10 pillow barrel assembly by providing additional insulation. I already have hose wraps and a cozy for the P10 short hose, which helps keep condensation under control in those components, but it still collects in the barrel itself. Eventually the exhalation ports become wet and don't allow enough air exchange, and I wake up feeling starved for air.

I was impressed with the product's design. It seemed to be measured, cut, and sewn together quite well, so it fits quite well over the assembly. It was a bit difficult to pull the large pillows through the holes, but I imagine I'll get better at it with practice. The product does increase the comfort of the overall mask, particularly under the nose, over the lip, and around the sides; however, alas I still woke up with condensation in the barrel. I guess there's just no solution to that particular problem other than sleeping in a warmer room (no) or decreasing the humidity setting (maybe).

All in all - a great comfort product, but don't expect too much in terms of additional insulation and preventing condensation.

According to another member there is another solution per Resmed - duct tape. Here is the discussion:
