Resmed AirFit P10
#61
Rsprods, I'm a little confused.

You have the Airfit P10 and the Airfit N10? And you also use the full face mask the Airfit F10?

This is the review thread for the P10. If you have used the N10, then feel free to start a new thread on your experience with the N10. No one has yet and it would be great for you to share your experience with it! The same goes for the F10, actually.

Mustache should be as little or less trouble than the nasal I bet.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried - and liked - the P10 but the non-adjustable headgear was a little too snug...

Regarding adjusting headgear for the P10 should it be needed, this may help: http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...2#pid70282

This comment is not a review, but I hope the mods will be happy for the link to be included as it addresses the most raised review issue through a diy approach, and readers of the thread may not be aware of it.

And the strap being too tight is much more easily correctable than it being too lose -- up to a point.

It is apparently DESIGNED to stretch. Try stretching it.

Of course the idea of cutting it and adding velcro, works just as well with making it larger as with making it smaller.

If the P10 is close, and you really can't use it -- then try the F & P Pilairo Q nasal pillow mask.

Thanks, will find out when I get the P10. I have trouble finding hats that fit, so I I might need to readjust the P10, or stretch it.

Visitor, you might do better if you pick a unique screen name and register along with your Machine type and such, to get better help.

The key to ANY pillow mask is that you must be able to do 2 things:

1) Breathe through your nose
2) Keep your mouth shut to avoid leaks (possibly with strap or tape)

With the P10 we must add in the extra caveat of getting the head gear to fit.

8 out of 10 people who CAN do #1 and #2 like the P10 best. 1 out of 10 has to modify it or thinks something like the Pilairo is as good or better. The 10th person can't use the P10 or otherwise doesn't care for it.

This is an amazing testimonial to any mask, but it still leaves that no mask is perfect for everyone.
Sweet Dreams,

Hi herbm,

I'll see if I can change my screen name (ETA: that does not seem to be possible?). I have only been diagnosed last week (second sleep test) and now have a prescription for an APAP. I will probably collect it today. So, I didn't fill in my APAP yet as I wanted to be sure. Looks like it will be the Breas i20. Once I'm sure, I'll update. Many thanks. All this is very helpful and I'm determined to try out the P10. I'll have to order it online as my supplier does not seem to have it here, but I'm ok starting out with their masks as I need to get this treatment started asap (feeling terrible). I'm thinking of picking a full face mask, as I sometimes get a severely blocked nose, so it might not be bad to have a backup for that situation (only when I have a serious head cold). But I'm convinced I want to start out with a nasal pillow type mask. I just can't get it that fast here. The only other option will be a nasal mask.

I regularly get one side of my nose blocked when I sleep, which changes sides when I turn over. But I hope that using the APAP will end up keeping both passages clear. If not, I may switch to another solution. But I intend to start from what seems best in general and work my way down according to need.

Hmm, just noticed I'm upgraded to a preferred member. Not sure what that means. Is it because I have more than 20 posts?

If you really want to do that send a pm to Supersleeper. He can fix you up with that. But Visitor is kind of catchy so don't change it unless you want to.

That's just exactly what I did. I doubt that I'll ever use my nasal masks again but I might use my face mask again in a pinch.

Good plan. I found that the pillows mask do a great job of keeping my nosie clear. One of the nicer benefits of the mask.

Bought a nasal mask as they didn't have the P10. I'll quit commenting in this thread now as it's really for P10 reviews. Trying out the BREAS for the first time tonight.

Actually "Visitor" is a perfectly fine screen name -- I incorrectly though it was some sort of generic name the board had assigned.

We can know YOU as "Visitor" just fine. The works just as well as "retired_guy" or "sleepster" etc.

The real key was getting your info into the profile so people can see what you are using etc.

Good luck with the machine though *I* have no idea what that is.
Sweet Dreams,
