Swift FX or Resmed AirFit P10
#11
I could not get used to the cushions on the Swift FX. I really like the Airfit P10. It is my backup mask to the Airfit F10 (yes, I prefer a full face mask). I find it is always good to have two different types of mask.

I tried the P10 for a couple of weeks. I would wake up during the night and it would be either off my face or on the floor. Never could get the adjustment right. When I spoke to the DME rep, she asked me to try the Swift FX. After using it for 5 weeks, I've only had it off 2 times now during the night. It is a little heavier than the P10, but I'm a side sleeper so I let my pillow support the weight. I do use the P10 when watching tv and napping in the chair. If your DME will let you try one for awhile and you want to try another style, ask if you can keep the other since they are gonna throw it away anyway. That's how I now own the FX, P10 and a Quattro.

I started with the FX for her. It fit very well, but I could not get used to the jetstream. It hits my arm, it bounces off the sheets and into my face, especially the eyes. The fix for that was to try the P10 and it has been so much more comfortable for me! There used to be an old retired guy around here who said that resistance is futile... you will be assimilated into using the p10 Big Grin

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

I wish my DME would let me try the mask out however ounce I take it home that is it no returns or trial time!
I have a Sleepweaver and a Amara view that I cannot use the Quattro air is the only mask that I'm using however I'm struggling with it on the bridge of my nose! I need another mask that I can use in addition and I'm looking at the Aloha, Airfit10 and the Swift FX . Wish I could try them all and it gets frustrating waiting for the next Insurance approval date.

Sorry to hear that. Up until 2weeks ago I traveled from MO to any state east of the Mississippi for work. I was diagnosed with cancer last week so that put a halt on a lot of life right now. (This will be for help in another thread latter). Since I know what I use the most and their replacement policy, I would be willing to send you the Swift fX head gear when available with new medium size pillows. Just keep me in touch. Apparently I got a GREAT DME supplier.

Thank you everyone! One more question! What do you use if you nose is sensitive Lanolin?


Yes, try Lansinoh Cream. Found in any pharmacy, Walmart, etc.

Or, maybe you mean that your nose is Lanolin sensitive... not sure?

My ENT Doctor recommended 'Ayr nasal gel' which I think is water based to me for dry membranes in my nose long before I started using the CPAP machine. I got mine from a local pharmacy, and it is over the counter.

I have both and use both. I can say that the P10 is lighter and quieter than the FX but the FX is my choice because it stays on my head way better than the P10 so I use the FX longer at night than I could have with the P10. I like the p10 but it just keeps coming off in the middle of the night. I think if ResMed took the mask from the P10 and put the headgear from the FX on it they would have in my opinion the perfect nasal pillow mask.

Precisely my point. Combine the two and you would have a mask that is tough to beat. I really like the FX but that port sucks.
