need help finding mask
#1
I need to find a new mask that's compatible with a Resmed S9 hose. I currently wear a medium full face mask but the air coming out of the exhalation port blows right on my wife's face. So now I've been mostly sleeping in the guest bedroom for about 5 months. Actually, it's not so bad because I don't have to wear earplugs to block the snoring.

OK, assuming I want to go back to that, can someone suggest a mask where the port doesn't blow on their partner?

Thanks,
Paul

What is the mask you are using? Do you need to stick with a FFM or are you able to go with a nasal or pillow mask with a chin strap perhaps?

You might give this a try:

Google search:

Resmed cpap mask diffuser exhaust

That returns some masks that might interest you.

If you want to stick to a FFM, I recommend the Resmed Airfit F10. It has a diffuser on the elbow and is better than the masks with exhalation ports on the top part of the mask.

If you can do nasal pillows, then the P10 is the best air diffuser in the market.
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.
