ResMed Airfit P10 Pillows
Can anyone tell me the difference between a medium and a large set of pillows? I know that the hole size is larger but is there any other difference?

I am using the large size now and they seem to be a little wide. I am hoping the the medium size has the pillows a little bit closer together.

RE: ResMed Airfit P10 Pillows
When I ordered the P10 the first time my DME sent me a starter kit that contained one of each size, you might ask about that. I checked and it appears the S, M, and L and both size and spacing different - ie. S is the smallest pillows and closest pillows.

Also, be careful going to smaller sizes with the P10, the pillow is supposed to sit on the outside of the nostril and not go inside. Many report soreness and irritation when the pillow is inserted inside the nostril. The idea is for the silicone seal to inflate and act like a "pillow" on the outside of the nostril sealing it from leaking. If you have to use a smaller size for spacing and it does result in irritation, you can get some lanolin cream from a pharmacy in the breast feeding area - it is used to treat sore nipples and works well, a tube will last you a life time - a little goes a LONG way.

BTW,

Should you choose to continue on with the "P-10's", you can search on the internet to find various sizes available for sometimes reasonable prices.

It seems Smalls and Mediums are available frequently, but the large's seem to be rarely posted.

I've not ordered any there, I have a medium and a small I'll never use, still in the bloody starter box... and if there were someone that wanted them I'd be happy to send em' along....

The O'l boy upstairs says we're supposed to help each other y'know?

I've been thinking of getting a medium and see if it fits any better. I have been using the P10 since it came out and really like the setup. I have used small, medium, and large. Presently using large and can't remember how the smaller sizes fit.

RE: ResMed Airfit P10 Pillows
I too have experimented with the different size pillows and still not sure which size I should stay with. The medium seems to physically rest on my nose best with the least leaks but the smaller hole is harder to get air in. The large leaks more but is more comfortable breathing. I keep both in stock as both are acceptable, just not sure which is best yet.

HuhDont-knowI am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay
