Question about the P10
I am thinking about changing masks, I have been using the Breeze for about 3 years but, I am thinking about going to one of new and improved masks. I like all the features of the Airfit P10 except I sleep on my side and have always used the masks that were top of head feeders. Before the Breeze I used the Comfortlite 2 (which was great) util it was discontinued. So my question is does the hose port on the P10 pivot to where I can route it up over the top of my head or should I just try a mask like the Dreamwear?

RE: Question about the P10
The P10 has an 18 inch umbilical hose that doesn't swivel but is very flexible. Several users have reported tying it off with a velcro strap to the top of the headgear to achieve your setup preference. Personally, I use a hose hanger that supports the hose above me.

Good luck.

Short answer is no. The flex hose doesn't pivot.

RE: Question about the P10
Take a look at the Nuance, too. It has a pivot hose, has a loop to route the hose through, and is lightweight.

But any mask can be made to go in that direction. A bit of string on the headboard, a store-bought hose hanger, or even just tucking it between the mattress and headboard (which is what I did for years).

RE: Question about the P10
Gonna call the DME tomorrow see what they have available. I know I can go to another DME but, since everything is in place with this one seeing how I just got the new machine from them I will see what they have before going to another DME. I was thinking maybe I could rig something with one of my old Breeze headgears I have few laying around.

IMHO, you can try the DreamWear but... resistance is futile... no matter what mask you try, you will end up with P10 as the one of your top choices if not the only one...

And for comfort, I found that even though the snout does not swivel, I start on my back, take the hose and giving myself some slack, I just tuck it under the top right corner of the pillow. (the machine is to my left) on a table next to the bed while lying on my back. This lets me roll to either side as needed and very rarely comes out from under the pillows edge nor pulls on the mask.

RE: Question about the P10
I went with the Nuance Pro it just felt right as soon as I tried it on. The RT said that I have 30 days to try it out and if I am not happy with it I can change over to. the Airfit. She said she would make a note on my file to state that if I am unhappy with the Nuance to send me the Airfit. Sleep-well

RE: Question about the P10
You can also try the Nuance in a fabric frame if you end up not liking the Gel inserts in the frame of the Pro. I find the fabric more comfortable, but we all are different, after all.
