I switched to a nasal cushion last year because my full face mask was wearing holes in my skin and my skin needed a rest.
I just saw my sleep doctor Thursday and asked to go back. He prescribed a Phillips Responics DreamWear Full Face mask. He showed me one that was similar to the nasal cushion mask, but I didn’t like that style as well.
The biggest problem was figuring out how to put it on. It fits below the nose with two holes for your nostrils. I’m so use to a full mask that goes over the nose I was confused.
Once I figured it out, I was good to go. Didn’t wake up, and sleep soundly. Also, when I woke up the mask was still on me.
Last year’s mask was this one: ResMed AirFit™ P10 For Her Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask with Headgear
The issue was that it would slide up my head and would be loose in the morning. The machine wasn’t registered that as a leak or other issue, which surprised me. It was the top fit that was an issue.
He had me try one a similar full face but I could tell I would have the sliding issue again.
