which pillows do you like the most?
#1
I am getting ready to buy the machine and the mask. I am using resmed pillows and mask and they are pretty good. Does anyone like any nasal pillows more and why. Thanks

Nuance non-Pro pillows. Less invasive and one heckuva seal.

The second would be the P10. Stupid, stupid headgear but if you are into the quiet that much, you will find ways to make it work.

1. Nuance non-Pro pillows is my favorite - easiest mask to wear for long periods for me.
2. Fisher and Paykel Pilairo Q is my second choice.
3. ResMed P10 is my last resort; I can't find a pillow size that works well for me with this mask.

All are good masks, you just have to try them until you find one you like.

P10 is my first choice.

The Pilaro Q is second.

I'm currently trying the Nuance non-pro (fabric) but finding the headgear uncomfortable. The Pillows are nice though, and I get a lower leak rate with the Nuance than the P10 or Pilaro Q.

Resmed Airfit P10. Everything else is an exercise in futility.

It has the most advanced, lightest and most efficient design out of all the masks. It is at least one generation ahead of anything from respironics or f&p.

Resmed P10. Because ultimately, '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.

The P10 nosepiece is decent in design only because of how it diffuses the vent. The rest? Not so much. Head gear is beyond silly. One size fits all has never worked with CPAP masks. Only mask I have ever had to leave a sore. Even the overly tight FFMs healed faster. And the exhale of the P10 is too difficult for some folks. I had a lot of trouble with it.

The P10 is the only mask that I've ever worn that HURT. Others leak, shift around, etc. but the P10 actually HURT.

I use the P10. The only other one I can compare it to from personal experience is the FX pillows. The P10 is a hands down winner for me because of the diffused venting; the air plowing out of the FX was just not doable for me. I would however love to have the fit of a different head gear to replace the P10 headgear. It is the right size for my rather small head, (if you don't have a small head, I cannot imagine it working) but the straps of both it and the FX cut across the upper cheek right below the eyes and IMO may contribute to eye swelling from impeding lymph drainage around the eye area. Eye swelling is a big issue for me.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

All are good masks, you just have to try them until you find one you like.

Dave - looking into the Nuance based on your recommendation. But what is the difference between the regular and the Pro? And what do they mean by "fabric frame?"

Not Dave, but the Nuance Pro has a Silicone Frame with Gel Pads, and the regular Nuance has a soft cloth Fabric Frame. All else is the same.

Look on Supplier #1 site, and you can see the photos.
