Resmed P10 vs F10 results
#1
Guys,
I typically use P10 pillows with Airsense A10 Autoset but due to having very narrow nasal passages (awaiting surgery for "rebore") sometimes I struggle to breath and so switch to full face. When I do though I get much higher AHIs. With pillows I'd be around 0-2 but with full face maybe 5-15! I do change the machine settings from pillows to full face when I switch.
I originally started out 10 months ago on full face and would get results around 5 or just below somwhat might have changed and why would pillows owkr better than FF anyway?
Cheers Evan

I am sure people who know what they are talking about will answer soon, until then I will babble a little.

I use and F10 on an Autoset now.

1. I have read that pressure requirements are different for the two, I want to say the F10 requires higher pressure to obtain the same therapy. So, you would have to raise the pressure a little in addition to changing the setting in the machine to obtain the same results.

2. I find the F10 tends to have a lot of minor variation in leakage. If you are like me and flop around a lot that could be impacting the readings, I believe leaks are supposed to affect the accuracy of the machines ability to mark events.

I have a P10 on order and will be very interested in how it compares, than you for posting.

Thanks Frank,
I wasnt aware of diiferent pressure for F19 vs P10, only changing the setting as to which mask, Ill ask my technician next week.
As for leaks, indeed I have MUCH higher leaks with F10. Maybe as Im knly using occasionally Im not used to it? I have also read leaks can confuse results so will also check that with tech and will read data interpreTion manual from Resmed.

Cheers (and good luck with P10)

The main problems I saw with the F10 leaking were:

1. Straps too tight. It is designed to be loose and then inflate.
2. Beard.

there aren't any pressure requirements for the mask, but for some people, a full face mask may close their airway due to the pressure on the lower jaw, and that, for some people may require higher pressures.

My reference was to threads here that some people find that they get the same AHI with lower pressure with the P10.

which is consistent with what I said, that for some people different masks may need higher or lower pressures.

Ah, agreed, I misread your post.
