ResMed Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask Comparison: AirFit P30i vs AirFit P10

The ResMed AirFit family of masks are some of our top-selling CPAP masks due to their innovative design and comfort. For those looking for a nasal pillow mask, the AirFit P30i and the AirFit P10 are our top recommendations. But which to choose? To help you decide which nasal pillow mask is best for you, we have put together this comparison of key features and differences between the two.

ResMed AirFit P30i Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask

The ResMed AirFit P30i Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask is the newest addition to the AirFit family of masks. This mask includes a universal frame design with a wide-open field and vision for reading and watching TV in bed. It also has a tube-up design to accommodate every sleeping positions and active sleepers. The SpringFit frame and cushions have also been designed to provide a comfortable fit while staying in position all night long. And when you do need to get up at night, the easy slide-off mask makes it easy to get out of bed. With QuietAir vent technology, exhaled air is spread out—keeping the noise down to 21 dBA.

But the most notable feature of this particular mask is its ability to interchange the nasal pillow cushions for the N30i nasal cradle cushions.

The Standard Starter Mask pack comes with headgear, frame and all three pillow sizes (small, medium and large).

Key Features:

  • Comes with three cushion sizes to determine best fit
  • SpringFit frame flexes to easily contour to face
  • One-size-fits-all headgear
  • Clear full field of vision without any nose bridge irritation

ResMed AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask

The AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow Mask is one of the most popular masks at The CPAP Shop. Its design makes it 50% lighter and quieter than most nasal pillow masks. The mask comes with three color-coded cushion sizes that easily clip into place. The one-piece QuickFit elastic headgear makes user adjustments very simple while the flexible short-tube provides more freedom of movement. This mask eliminates the majority of bulk found in traditional nasal masks, making it ideal for those who may like to watch TV or read before bed. The AirFit P10 is compatible with all CPAP/BiPAP machines, including the ResMed AirMini Travel CPAP.

Simplicity was a priority with this new design that includes only 3 parts. The quick-fit elastic headgear has a unique split strap design that provides stability and adjustability with minimal facial contact. The nasal pillows seal on contact and gently push the air into the nose, and the ultra-light tubing is durable while allowing for movement without breaking the seal.

In each mask bundle, you get a mask frame, headgear, short tube, 2 headgear clips, and a starter set of small, medium and large nasal pillows.

Key Features:

  • 50% lighter and quieter than most popular nasal pillow masks
  • Only has three pieces–cushion, tube, & headgear
  • Innovative, flexible tube highly durable with freedom of movement
  • Also available in styles for her

So, Which AirFit Mask is Best for You? 

While both ResMed AirFit nasal pillow masks are good picks and best-sellers, there are a few key differences that will help you decide which mask is best for you. The ResMed AirFit P30i frame contours to the face, but only comes in two cushion sizes. The ResMed AirFit P10 has a lighter and quieter design and more adjustable headgear. However, many users commented that the headgear elastic would stretch out quickly, resulting in leaks.
