If you’re one of nearly 20 million Americans who suffer from sleep apnea, you’re probably familiar with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. Currently considered the standard and most common sleep apnea treatment, CPAP therapy has proven highly effective at managing life-threatening symptoms. Despite this, several studies have shown that up to 80% of sleep apnea patients don’t comply with CPAP treatment. Quite often, this lack of compliance is because the patient’s CPAP mask is uncomfortable to wear.
What many people don’t realize is, not all CPAP masks are made the same. There are numerous options available to suit various face shapes and sleeping positions. Choosing a good mask can make your treatment more comfortable and ultimately more effective.
The Resmed P-10 Nasal Pillow Mask recently topped several lists for the best CPAP masks of 2021, boasting innovative features and a minimally invasive design. Keep reading as we discuss the key benefits of the Resmed P-10 and whether it could be the right mask for you.
Highlights of the Resmed P-10
The Resmed P-10 is a quiet, lightweight nasal pillow mask compatible with all CPAP, BiPAP, and VPAP machines. One way that this model stands out is in its design. The Resmed P-10 features two cushioned prongs that are inserted into the nose, leaving the mouth and cheeks uncovered. Because it has minimal facial contact, you can rest your face against your pillow without worrying that the mask will slip off or dig into your skin.
Thanks to advanced mesh-vent technology, the Resmed P-10 is also 50% quieter and 50% lighter than most other models on the market. Additionally, the mask is made with a dual-wall construction to help enforce an airtight seal. This feature is perfect for active and side sleepers who may be more susceptible to air leaks. However, active sleepers of any position may also benefit from the Resmed P-10’s short, flexible tube, which adjusts to your movements throughout the night without getting tangled.
Key features of the Resmed P-10 include:
- Three parts for quick installation, cleaning, and fitting
- Color-coded nasal pillows for sizing
- Dual walled cushions for added comfort
- Highly flexible cushions for more freedom of movement and a tighter seal
- Light, unobtrusive headgear that is elastic and comfortable to wear during CPAP therapy
- 50% lighter and 50% quieter than many options on the market
- Woven, mesh-vent technology for ultra-quiet performance
