AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow Mask - ResMed
ResMed devised the P10 nasal pillow CPAP mask to be even quieter and lighter than their popular Swift FX nasal pillow mask. The P10 arrives with three sizes of nasal pillows and headgear with a split strap design. Weighing in at just 1.6 ounces, the three-piece nasal pillow CPAP mask with headgear is barely noticeable against the face and nose. The mask easily slips on and stays in place thanks to an auto-adjusting fit. It also won a RedDot award in 2014 for its ultra-light, ultra-quiet design.
Minimalist three-piece design
Quiet and lightweight
Split strap headgear
Three-part construction keeps it simple
With just three parts to keep up with, assembly, fitting, and cleaning are all worry-free. The mask frame and flexible tubing are molded into one integrated piece. The nasal pillows clip in quickly and have markers for the left and right orientation. The QuickFit elastic headgear has a split strap that slips quickly over the head and auto-adjusts to the individual’s head circumference. The split straps can be moved closer together or farther apart to fine-tune the fit of the nasal pillows in the nose and against the face.
This mask introduces ResMed’s trademarked QuietAir woven vent meshing that directs exhaled airflow quietly away from the user and bed partner. It is so quiet that you might even wonder if your CPAP machine is on. Of course, everyone sleeps better with a quiet mask!
The mask comes with three sizes of nasal pillows (S, M, & L) to allow the user to determine the best size for them at home in their own bed. An XS pillow is also available separately if needed. The pillows have a dual cushion design that augments comfort and seal. The nasal pillows seal on contact and provide “trampoline action,” bouncing with the wearer during movement so that they stay in place without excessively tight headgear.
Sizing and Fitting
The nasal pillows should fit comfortably at the entrance to the nose. The silicone tips should fill the nostrils without spilling over. Choose the largest size that fits snugly without bulging. This mask comes with small, medium, and large nasal pillows. One of these three sizes fits most people, but an XS pillow is also available separately if needed.
Hold the nasal pillows in the nose with one hand.
Pull the bottom strap of the split strap headgear behind the head.
Position the top strap of the split strap headgear at the crown of the head.
Pull the nasal pillows away from the face then reseat them in the nostrils.
Move the split straps closer together for a tighter fit or farther apart for a looser fit.
Connect the flexible tubing on the mask to the CPAP machine.
Adjusting for leaks and comfort
Verify that the pillows are inserted correctly. The right side needs to be in the right nostril. The pillows have a slight upward angle to hold them in the nostrils, so proper orientation in the mask is essential for a good fit.
Adjust the headgear by moving the split straps closer together.
Squeeze the pillow sides to be sure the inner wall is in the correct position.
Clean the nasal pillows. Oil, dirt, and makeup can cause slippage.
Wash the headgear to return it to its original size if it gets too loose.
Try a different size of nasal pillows.

How does the AirFit P10 differ from the AirFit P10 for Her?
The P10 for Her includes an extra-small nasal pillow along with a small and medium pillow. The P10 for Her also has an attractive pink and gray color palette, whereas the regular P10 has a gray and blue color palette.
The headgear feels like it got too stretched out, and now the mask has trouble staying in place. What should I do?
First, try washing the headgear. Washing may shrink it back to its original shape. Over time, the elastic will wear out, though. Headgear on most masks should be replaced every 3 to 6 months.
This mask is an excellent nasal pillow mask for sleep apnea therapy for people who want a light-fitting nasal pillow mask, breathe through their nose, and appreciate an unobstructed line of sight. The headgear is among the easiest around to use. Really, it’s no surprise that ResMed won the RedDot award for this mask in 2014! Order one from CPAPMan and experience the ultra-quiet and ultra-lightness of the AirFit P10!

It was my first time using a nasal pillow mask instead of going with my normal nasal mask, not going to as this took some getting used to but my god I wish I would have come to this sooner. Somehow my sleep is much better and my breathing feels fuller. The biggest plus of this mask is that the headgear doesn't interact with my face at all when its worn. I have had some problems with masks that rest on my face causing my cheeks to feel sore or having marks show in the morning. (try going to a meeting and people looking at the marks on your face) (makes for funny conversation) I'm going to explore the ResMed line after this one. Thanks guys
