Tried the Brevida nasal pillow and changed to ResMed P10 due to irritation on the outside of my nose. Still having problems with P10. I feel that my nose is totally obstructed and very conscience of my breathing while on. It has been 10 days and I wake up after 5-6 hours and remove it. Will I get used to it, or do I need a different type of device. My numbers are running good. thanks

I use the ResMed P10. I did have a reaction on my face from the mask, but put t-shirt cloth covers over both sides and no more problems. As for the sound, I listen to audio books every night to fall asleep. I forget I have the mask on. Just made one month with mine. Good luck and keep us posted if you find the right answer.

I have used both the Brevida and the P10. Both irritated my nose to some degree. The Brevida seemed to irritate the division between the two nostrils and I gave up on it. My wife tried it and now loves it. With the P10 I found that I got a better seal with a smaller size cushion, but it irritated the inside of my nostrils more. I switched to a larger size so it sits more on the nose than in it. I also used a 1% hydrocortisone creme on the irritated external surfaces of my nose. I only needed to do that for a couple of weeks. Now I am good with it, and have no irritation.
