I have been diagnost with severe sleep apena and I have to use CPAP machine. No other option will work at this point. My index is 101. However I am very claustrophobic and hate having anything around my nose and mouth. When i went for sleep study I tried nose only mask and it seemed to be OK. Does anyone in my situation have any suggestion. I am going got mask tryout sometimes next week so I am not sure what machine I will get but if you can recommend what mask to get, it will help me make a choice.
I would second zonk's suggestion of Resmed P10 nasal pillows mask. It's the mask with least contact area and least no. of moving parts.
Ultimately, everyone finally comes to the P10 on their Cpap journey. Why prolong the journey when you can reach the destination straight away.
The resmed P10....Because 'Resistance is futile!'
Started APAP 4-20, Closed range to 7.5-14, then straight 8.0 w/ Aflex 3
RDI always below 1. But sleep much much better at straight pressure.
Started on F10, Tried Quattro Air successfully. Finally settled on P10.
