Hello All, I have been using the Bleep Sleep for about a month and had the mask setting as "Nasal". I have read on the forum that it should have been "Pillows", so I changed it. But I am interested to know if anybody can tell me what the difference is between the three mask style settings on the machine- does it have to do with air flow? Thanks!

It's based on dead space in the silicone portion of the mask. Because the silicone bulb of the DreamPort is so small, it's normally used with the nasal pillow setting. That said, some end users use the nasal mask setting successfully. I would tell you if your AHI, Leak, and Pressures are staying about the same, not to worry about it, and use what is most comfortable to breathe on.
