RE: Switching from nasal mask to nasal pillow mask
It's hard to imagine anyone who can successfully use a nasal mask not finding a nasal pillow mask much more comfortable.

I just had this happen but I didn't switch the settings to nasal pillow from mask. I'm going to try that tonight.

I don't have such a setting on my machine, or if I do, I can't find it.
