RedMed nasal mask update
#1
RedMed nasal mask update
I have an older Res Med nasal pillow set-up.  It has a brass ring that slips into the headgear.  I find that no matter how I adjuts it, the ring sits and puts pressure on the area area between my upper lip and nostrils.
Has this mask been updated so that there is no metal in the pillow replacement?

I don't know the name and can't find any markings other than the M for size on the pillow part.

IDK much about other masks but I can tell you the resmed airfit p10 nasal pillow mask doesn't have a brass ring. any discomfort I felt at my lip and nose was gone after the first week. hmm. maybe a nose ring would be a good way to keep the mask on. no headgear required. just clip it on.

There’s no brass ring in the P30i.

if you can get a new mask you'll be happy with p30i, especially if you sleep on the side or stomach. As an alternative you can get dreamwear nasal, it has 2 versions to choose from, a pillow version and a new type of mask that only slightly touches your skin.

Hi metropical.

Do you have the airfit n30i? I don't have the n30i and I have not tried it but as I was on my cpap mask journey and was researching on the type of masks available, I came upon this video on youtube reviewing the n30i which describes an experience that sounds a lot like what you are experiencing (between the 6:50-7:00 minute mark).  N30i review

Hope this helps!
