I am new to CPAP and a stomach sleeper. Being so new to everything I was wondering what nasal masks or pillows work best for people like me who sleep on their stomachs.
My insurance only lets me get a new mask every 3 months so I might be paying out of pocket for another meal but I'm ok with that as long as it works well. Currently I am using a Eson 2 nasal mask. It does a decent job but I do sometimes get a mask leak if I roll over in the night and then I get woken up from the leak blowing air in my eyes. Overall I'd rate the mask as decent and.... relatively comfortable but I do not have enough experience to know if there is another option or there that would work best. I was looking at maybe trying the ResMed AirFit P10? I'm not really sure. Any thought or ideas would be helpful, thank yo

You might look at the F & P Brevida or the ResMed AirFit P10 or the one I current use the Bleep DreamWay.

I looked into the Dream Way. It looks really awkward with the mask going up your nose. Is it comfortable?

I am a back sleeper so just the opposite, but I have the dreamwear nasal cushion. It doesn't stick into my nose, just sits below, one strap behind my head and the hose at the top. It works very well for me. I can imagine the hose at the top of your head could work but I never tried turning onto my stomach. Just a thought. I hated everything until I got that. Full face masks and ones that stuck in my nose, (it was all torture until I found this one). Anyhow maybe tonight when I go to bed I will try to turn over and see what happens. Good luck. I'm sure there are a lot of people with more experience who can give better advice. I am still in my first year.

The DreamWay adhesive does go up the side of the nose just a bit and on the cheek just a bit but you don't notice it anymore than you might notice a bandaid.
Nothing goes inside the nose at all.
No headgear to screw around with being either too loose or too tight.
No dents in the cheeks from straps.

Once I stick it on my nose it pretty much disappears and I don't even notice it is there.
