Air pillows better than p10’s?

Post by ThisIsMyUserName » Wed Jan 05, 2022 1:33 pm

I have used air pillows for a a decade and used to have a favorite that I thought was unbeatable until the airfit p10’s came along and those seemed awesome. I’ve been using those for a bunch of years and figured I would check if there was anything new out there that I should try? I do love the p10’s, but any improvement in comfort means better sleep which means better life.

The hose to your P10 connects in front. There is now a P30i with the hose connecting to the headgear on top of the head. This boils down to personal preference. Some like the hose connecting on top, some in front.

You can find lots of information on nasal pillow masks at our host's website - https://www.cpap.com/plp/nasal-pillows- ... ks/ZT0yNjY

I think the Brevida nose pillows are way more comfortable than the p10s. Brevida isn't new though.

It is good to know what else works for you--in case the best one gets discontinued.
Uh, I mean when . . .

If you like the P10, you may want to try the N30 (nasal cradle).
It's very similar to the P10, they now share the same adjustable headgear (but all other parts are not interchangeable). The diffusers are different. N30 uses a filter-like material embedded in the frame rather than the mesh that the P10 uses. N30 is pretty quiet, but not as quiet as the P10 (the P10 is the quietest mask I own).
I alternate between the P10 and N30 to vary the pressure points on my nose.
