I think you'll enjoy your P10. Like any mask it may take it a day or so to get used to you. Try with whatever pillow size you think you should use, but don't be afraid to move up to a larger size too. I'm definitely a medium but I do very well with a large.

retired-guy,

I'm confused, if you definitely are a 'medium' pillow guy, how do you do very well with a large? The AirFit P10 mask for Her that I got doesn't even offer a size large. I always thought the mask sizes itself were the same and I've had mine almost since they came on the market.

I don't know, Gramma... It's just a thing with the P10. If you're a small, you can often do very well with a medium. If you're a medium, try a large. If you're a large, well --- guess you're out of luck.

I think I figured out that when I'm in a period of sleeping on my back most of the time, the medium works best. Then after a week or so I'll decide to sleep on my side most of the time and the large works best...

Maybe if I decided to sleep on my head the small would be good...

Happily, all three sizes come with the mask.

RE: Resmed AirFit P10
I really like my P10, don't get me wrong, but there are nights when the way the pillow itself "sits" on my upper lip that I want to just pitch the whole thing out the window. I don't know why (because I never asked why not) but when I got my first cpap machine, the guy that delivered it told me not to sleep on my back. I find it hard to do that as some nights I just don't sleep well no matter what I do.

I think I just might order a large size pillow so I can satisfy my curiosity. I've currently been using the medium because I could never really decide which one I liked the best or worked the best for me.

RE: Resmed AirFit P10
I went from the small to medium pillows and the leaks were reduced by quite a bit. Now I am using the Medium Pillows and a headband for a chin strap and ResScan reports 0.0 leaks.

RE: Resmed AirFit P10
I am using the women's head band attached to a men's mask, with large pillows...no leaks, I can toss and turn it stays put...

I apparently have a small head, but large nose...typical Brit...lol

My tech did a great job of fitting me for this mask...

Will see what time brings, one sleep at a time...

Grin RE: Resmed AirFit P10
I am finally eligible for a new mask kit and after using the nuance pro I am going to take all the advice I have heard and get a P10, I just ordered it. I'll let you guys know how it turns out when I actually get it.

The Nuance Pro was good but here at the end the headgear really is not holding up all that well. I hope the P10 does better.

So here we go!

RE: Resmed AirFit P10
If you didn't like the headgear of the Nuance, you won't like the P10. It's headgear is, basically, a wide rubber band.

I loved the headgear from the Nuance, problem is it has some form of nonslip type stick on the back of it, and though it was great for 4+ months it has been wearing badly now. It will stick to itself if it rolls just a bit and the top is now pulling up on the pillows.

As to the mask itself, I liked that as well, but the air port in the front is quite annoying the way it blows.

RE: Resmed AirFit P10
Yeah, that back strap of the Nuance is nasty. I'm thinking of covering mine with vet wrap.

Give the P10 a try. You may like it. I hope you do.
