Pros And Cons of ResMed AirFit P10
The ResMed Airfit P10 is the best-selling mask nasal pillow mask on the market right now. The clean, lightweight design seems to be the major selling point.
Some pros that make this mask particularly appealing are:
1. The Headgear
The P10 nasal pillow mask comes with Quick Fit Headgear. The fabric of the headgear is a stretchy, soft one. All the joint parts on the mask are labeled, so you figure out quickly how to attach the mask and the headgear to your face. In total, there are only three parts, so you can disassemble it quickly when you have to clean. Resmed has now included clips so you can adjust the headgear when needed.
You don’t have to worry about the mask leaking. Airfit P10 has nasal pillows that fit into your nose. It also keeps the nasal mask in place. This way, even if you change your sleeping position throughout the night, you don’t have to worry about the mask slipping off. Add the fit of the headgear, and everything should stay in place.
3. Minimalistic Design
It's a small nasal pillow mask with headgear and a thin band behind your head. Your field of vision is completely unobstructed. So, if you want to watch or read something before going to bed, you should have no problems.
The mask is 1.6 oz in weight. It's light, and you don't feel it on your skin. Because there is little contact with the rest of your face, there is less chance of redness and blotching.
The ResMed s Quiet Air Technology is incorporated into the mask. The mesh vents at the front section of the mask ensure that when you exhale, it is a quiet, soundless one.
