sleep apnea pillow
#1
Angry 
Does anyone know of good pillow to use with the machine. I read to use memory foam of the special pillow called " EazyBreather - Sleep Apnea Pillow" from $ 119 Any suggestions. Now I got used to the machine I move from side to side at night and the noise of the air escaping wakes me up. grrrrrr Sad Thinking-about

I use a duck feather pillow. When I roll over I just punch it into shape - I've been using it for years now so I just do it in my sleep. It seems to work pretty well with the mask.

I bought a memory foam standard pillow and cut the shapes out of the sides to make room. Just copy the shape of the expensive one in the ad.

I use regular pillows (2) in a T shape (the bottom pillow is from east to west or left to right and the top pillow is north to south or top to bottom). Not sure if this will work for you but you could try it.

Libby, the new AirFit from Resmed is quite similar to the Swift FX but doesn't have this problem.

I recently purchased a pillow called "CPAPmax". Together with an extra cover, 2 pillow cases and shipping to Aust it came to a little under US$155. The pillow itself is only US$60.

I've only used it the past 5 nights and am still getting used it. I'll give it another 5 nights or so before deciding whether it is a good pillow choice for me and posting a review.
