The ResMed AirFit P10 is a nasal pillow mask designed for use with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines and other positive airway pressure (PAP) devices.
Like other nasal pillow CPAP masks, the AirFit P10 seals inside the nostrils rather than against the face. The AirFit P10’s design is exceptionally streamlined, and it features elastic headgear for a secure and comfortable fit.
To help you decide whether the AirFit P10 is right for your needs, we’ll take a closer look at its design and walk you through its performance, features, and how it differs from similar ResMed CPAP masks.
Other Nasal Mask Models Made by Philips Respironics
- ResMed AirFit P30i Nasal Pillow Mask: While the AirFit P30i has a top-of-head hose connection that may appeal to active sleepers, it has a bulkier design than the AirFit P10.
- ResMed AirFit N30 Nasal Mask: The AirFit N30 is a nasal cradle mask that seals beneath the nostrils, rather than inside of them like a nasal pillow mask. However, it has a lighter, lower-profile design than nasal masks that cover the user’s nose.
- ResMed AirFit N20 Nasal Mask: The AirFit N20 is a nasal mask that extends from the bridge of the nose to just above the mouth. This design adds bulk but may be more effective for some CPAP users.
What You Need to Know About the ResMed AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask
Nasal pillow CPAP masks like the ResMed AirFit P10 create a seal inside the user’s nostrils, which allows for a lower profile than other CPAP mask designs. The AirFit P10 features a dual-walled nasal pillow for improved stability and comfort.
The AirFit P10 extends its minimalist design to its slip-on headgear. While a previous version of the mask featured split-strap headgear that fit around the back and top of the user’s head, the current headgear has adjustable clips for a more personalized fit.
ResMed markets the AirFit P10, which it states has an average sound level of 21 decibels, as its quietest CPAP mask. The company attributes this noise reduction to the mask’s proprietary woven mesh vents.
What Comes With It
The ResMed AirFit P10 has a three-part design consisting of headgear, a frame system, and a nasal pillow cushion. To make it easier for users to find the correct fit, the mask comes with three color-coded nasal pillows in small, medium, and large sizes.
The mask is also sold in a “For Her” version that features lavender instead of blue accents and comes with extra small, small, and medium nasal pillow sizes.
Like most CPAP masks, the AirFit P10 does not come with tubing or other CPAP accessories. However, it does have a short hose that connects to your CPAP tubing.

CPAP Mask Cost
The AirFit P10 is among the most budget-friendly of ResMed’s nasal pillow masks, although it has a higher price-point than some competing masks from other manufacturers.
CPAP masks have a limited lifespan and must be replaced regularly. Like many CPAP masks, the AirFit P10 has a modular design that allows users to replace each component separately.
ResMed provides owners with a suggested replacement schedule, although components may need to be replaced more often if they show signs of damage or wear.
|Mask Frame||3 months||$80|
|Nasal Pillows||2 weeks||$19|
Using This CPAP Mask
The AirFit P10 has a minimalist style that is easy to understand and use, with adjustable headgear that easily slips on and off. However, CPAP users who are unfamiliar with nasal pillow masks may need to practice until they are comfortable inserting the pillows correctly.
Like most CPAP masks, the AirFit P10 is compatible with almost all CPAP machines and standard accessories. Notably, however, the standard version of the AirFit P10 is not compatible with the ResMed AirMini, the company’s popular travel CPAP machine. For AirMini users, ResMed manufactures an adapter that’s designed to fit between the AirMini tubing and the mask interface. The adapter is also available as part of a complete AirMini P10 mask pack.
The AirFit P10 has a pressure range of 4 to 20 centimeters of water pressure (cm H2O). This range is lower than many nasal or full-face CPAP masks, which typically have a therapy pressure range extending up to 30 cm H2O. Nasal pillow masks tend to be uncomfortable at higher pressure levels since the inserts result in more direct airflow to the nasal passages.
The AirFit P10 can be used with heated tubing that has a standard 22-millimeter cuff connection. Not all heated tubing is compatible with all CPAP machines, so it’s important to choose tubing that will work with your existing equipment.
ResMed states that the AirFit P10’s cushion and frame should be cleaned daily with soapy water, while the mask’s headgear should be soaked and washed weekly. The company suggests using a brush with soft bristles to clean the mask’s vent. Cleaning your mask as directed keeps it hygienic and helps prevent premature deterioration.
What Do Customers Have to Say About the AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask?
The AirFit P10 is a popular CPAP mask with broadly positive reviews, although some users report that the headgear is less durable than they would prefer.
The qualities that earn the AirFit P10 the most praise include its streamlined design and ease of use, and many reviewers state that it is the mask that allowed them to use their CPAP machine without discomfort. The mask is particularly popular among people who experience claustrophobia with bulkier masks.
While many people find the AirFit P10’s elastic headgear comfortable and secure, other reviewers have shared that it can stretch out over time and may require more frequent replacement than other ResMed headgear.
