In this blog post we are going to be comparing two nasal pillow CPAP masks, the;
- ResMed AirFit P10
- BMC P2
Both masks offer a high level of comfort and portability but there are a few points of difference to consider. Here we have outlined the differences and similarities between the two.

Size & Weight
Cost & Noise
There is a significant price difference between the two masks. The BMC P2 Mask is cheaper at $120, the AirFit P10 currently sits on sale for $219.
While the AirFit P10 mask is more expensive, it is also much quieter than the P2.
The BMC P2 mask is equipped with durable headgear, allowing you to get more wear from it. Depending on your level of care and maintenance, you will generally need to change the headgear on your P10 mask every 12-18 months. Of note you can now use the N30 headgear which has a built in adjustment clip.

Distribution of expired air
The ResMed AirFit P10 has mesh technology which minimises the air expelled out the front of the mask when you expire. This benefit is rarely talked about, but it can be a game changer for partners of CPAP users.
Compatibility with different brand CPAP machines
Both masks deliver effective CPAP therapy when fitted correctly.
In my opinion, overall the ResMed AirFit P10 is a better mask. The BMC P2 Mask is cheaper and more durable than the ResMed AirFit P10, however, the AirFit P10 is lighter and quieter. For its price, the BMC P2 is good value..
