ResMed Airfit P10
Hi, Everyone:
I just did my regular mask replacement. I've been using the Swift FX since I joined the land of Apnea a couple of years ago.
The saleswoman suggested I try the Airfit P10. It felt comfortable, but I realized over the next couple of days something was wrong. I thought I was experiencing high blood pressure, but my doctor said it was fine. It seemed as if I was under major stress. Then I remembered waking up a couple of times breathing extremely deeply, which is unusual for me. I went back to the Swift FX and everything was fine.
Any thoughts? Could it be a simple case of bumping the pressure on the P10? I'm currently set at 10.
All suggestions gratefully appreciated.
Cheers,
Scott

RE: ResMed Airfit P10
If related to the mask at all, I think you might want to try the next size larger pillows. If you're using a medium, try a large. It just sounds like you are feeling that you are not getting adequate air flow. If the pillow is a tad smaller than it should be for you, your nosie might be constricting it a bit causing the problem.

The Swift FX pillows seem to have a little larger opening than the P10. I found I had to go from a medium to a large when I got the P10. The mask should come with 3 sizes, you might want to try the larger size.

You may also need to increase the EPR. I have found that some nasal pillows require a higher exhale relief that others. I thought it was the inhale I was having problems with but it was the exhale.

I had a similar problem with the P10 but had already experienced it with the Swift LT and just adjusted accordingly. I don't have that with the Nuance and was able to turn the EPR down.

RE: ResMed Airfit P10
Thanks for the feedback. I'm using the large pillows already, and wasn't aware that it was possible to alter just the exhale. I will go back to the drawing board.

Welcome Sleepyb!
I am another that went from the Swift FX over to the P10 and couldn't be happier.
I hope once you fine tune whatever needs doing you will be as happy with the P10 as all of us other loyal P10 users are.
Good luck!

Sleep Tight...

I found the same thing. Use the medium with the Swift FX but large with the P10.
