Which is the best Sleep Apnea pillow?
#1
If you Google "CPAP Pillow" you get about a million responses. I know there must be a "Best" pillow out there. What is your favorite, especially for side sleeping to minimize leakage? Thanks, Jim

This is totally a user subjective topic. As for me. I use a buckwheat and foam pillow manufactured by a fellow in Utah. It's comfortable, adjustable and doesn't allow your head to sink down in it, thus pushing your mask.

I'm anxious to clear up this leakage problem so I went ahead and ordered a [commercial link removed - simply search Amazon for "Science of Sleep SleePAP CPAP Pillow" to get to the product - Admin] It has good reviews especially for clearing up leakage problems. Thanks for the other suggestions. Regards, Jim

Maybe you should get some sleep to help you think more clearly?! Dielaughing

I have been using a very thin pillow for the last two nights and my AHI has halved. I am a back sleeper. But yes, its all very personal, you have to go on a journey to find what works for you.

okrobie,
Unfortunately, no one can really say what the "best" pillow is. It's on the same level as choosing a Cpap mask. The drawback is you can't return the dang pillow if you don't like it.

My husband has commented many times about my pillow collection. Oh-jeez
I have spent a lot of $ trying out different "Cpap" pillows.

After about 6 months of that nonsense, I went back to the original pillow I used before Cpap therapy, which is a my pillow.
