Sleep Resolutions is dedicated to providing the best service and products for our patients. This includes offering the best sleep mask options. We take great pleasure in helping our patients find the perfect CPAP mask with the best fit and most comfort for them.
Patient’s report the highest rates of CPAP compliance when their mask fits comfortably and they are able to achieve restful sleep while using it. Studies have shown that patients are unlikely to get the greatest benefit from the CPAP system when the mask fit is poor and/or uncomfortable. This often leads to the patient discarding their CPAP entirely.
To avoid these situations, we’re offering a complete review of the ResMed Airfit P10. This popular CPAP mask is minimal in size but maximum in comfort. We will include this mask’s unique features, as well as user tips and frequently asked questions, to help you get a restful nights sleep.

The ResMed AirFit P10 Benefits
This nasal pillow system is marketed as ResMed’s quietest system available. It is approximately 50% quieter and 50% lighter than its popular ResMed Swift FX Mask system, without sacrificing performance or reliability.
The AirFit P10 features QuietAir technology, making this mask barely audible to both the patient and their partner. It features new, lightweight flex-tubes which are highly durable, allowing patients free movement without compromising the mask’s seal.
This mask features only three components, allowing for easy assembly and cleaning.
The nasal pillows are color-coded by size and feature right/left laterality for easy orientation. The AirFit P10 comes in four sizes: extra small (pink), small (clear), medium (grey), and large (blue).
The AirFit P10 for Her comes in three sizes: extra small through medium. The nasal pillow seals on contact, using a trampoline effect, leaving no doubt that the mask is working effectively.
AirFit P10 For Her
This award-winning variation is designed specifically for the special needs of women. It has all the features of the AirFit P10, including lightweight and quiet technology. Additionally, it features female-friendly sizes and colors.
The QuickFit auto-adjusting headgear allows the mask to be applied and removed in 30 seconds or less.
