Modifying DREAMWEAR silicone nasal pillow mask
Modifying DREAMWEAR silicone nasal pillow mask
I am using DREAMWEAR silicone nasal pillow mask and wondering about the benefit of the slit on the front of the mask (see attachment).

It emits air that makes the bed partner uncomfortable and sometimes it makes noise at high pressure. Does it affect the therapy if I tape close it? Will the device readings be affected and require adjustments while viewing the charts?

If I were you I would consider the ResMed P30i. It has a “quiet vent” and will not disturb your bed partner. I use the Dreamwear nasal cushion mask and it too shoot out a lot of air. What I would not do is block anything on a mask as CO2 needs to escape on exhale.

As stated above those holes are for carbon dioxide venting .
