ResMed AirFit F30 Full Face Hybrid CPAP Mask
The AirFit F30 Full Face Mask by ResMed sports many improvements over traditional full face CPAP masks. Unlike a traditional full face which covers the nose, the F30 instead cradles it from underneath with a soft silicone cushion which will eliminate red marks, and irritation on the bridge of your nose.
This makes it a good mask for those who are claustrophobic or often have trouble getting a good fit with a traditional full face. There is also no strap that goes directly across your forehead, therefore the CPAP user's view is not obstructed. No forehead strap combined with the cushion cradled underneath the nose, makes it a great option for those who wear glasses.
Plush, Five-Way Adjustable Headgear with Magnetic Clips
The AirFit F30 also possesses five-way adjusting straps to give the user the best fit possible. On the bottom straps, there are magnetic quick release tabs that allow putting on and pulling off the mask a breeze. This makes it a great mask for all users, especially for those who have limited hand motion.
This mask has been made with one size fits all headgear. Due to the five way adjustable straps it is easy to adjust the headgear to fit you perfectly. The dimensions of the headgear are as follows: Upper straps - 9 inches, and the lower straps - 11 inches.
Quick Release Elbow and Quiet Air Tube
Making the mask even easier to take off, it comes with a quick release quieter elbow to allow for late night bathroom breaks. This same elbow swivels allowing a full range of motion during sleep. Finally, this tube has the Quiet Air vent technology created by ResMed. This allows for peaceful sleep for both you and your bed partner.
The ultra compact cushion cradles the nose from underneath while still creating a secure seal. The feelings of claustrophobia will be eliminated with this mask design due to ResMed creating the full face cushion as minimal as possible. Due to this design the mask also makes less facial marks as there is minimal contact on the face.
The AirFIt F30 fitting for this minimal contact full face mask come in a size small and medium, where medium is the average cushion size, and will fit most people. The cushion is sold sold separately, so you will be able to replace as needed. However remember that your mask should be replaced around every 6 months.

What is the difference between the AirFit F20 and F30 Full Face Masks?
The main difference between these two masks is the cushion. The AirFit F20 does not cradle the nose below the cushion, however it is more like a traditional full face mask, where it sits on the bridge of your nose. Whereas the ResMed F30 cradles the nose, which could help with comfort and less skin irritations.
The F30 also has an adjustment at the top of the headgear, which helps to get a comfortable, stable and perfect fit every time. Whereas the F20 does not have this top of the head adjustment.
With these factors in mind, the AirFit F30 has a more unique innovative design, because of the multiple adjustment points on the headgear as well as the minimalist cushion.
Is this mask compatible with my tubing and machine?
The ResMed AirFit F30 will be compatible with most CPAP machine's and tubing.
Which mask should I get?
From your clinical study, you may know which mask they used and what you liked and disliked about it. If you breathe through your nose and mouth then the AirFit F30 would be a good option for you, due to the minimal hardware on the user’s face.
How do I setup AirFit F30 with AirMini?
Remove and replace the original mask elbow on your AirFit F30 with the AirMini F20 connector elbow. AirFit F30 and F20 share the same connector elbow, which is found in the AirMini mask setup pack for AirFit F20.
Please note: Mask Frame and Headgear are one size fits most.

If you are a side or stomach sleeper this mask is not for you! I have tried to use it for two weeks and had nothing but trouble keeping it on my face when the side of my face is on the pillow. I love the feel of the cushion, but the seal on my face constantly breaks, even when the straps are tightened to the point of being uncomfortable. Thankfully, RespShop is replacing it with a model more for me. LOVE their great customer service!
The literature boasts that this mask is great for those who wear glasses. Exactly who wears glasses to bed? I would like to know the best mask that stops/diminishes leakage for someone like myself who wears dentures!!!!!!!!!!!. The AirFit F20 I am using right now is scoring an average time in LARGE LEAK of 3 hours, 25 minutes and 18 seconds. In the past I have tried using Mirage Quattro, AirFit N20 and AirFit F30 with no success as well.
I tried this mask for a little over a month. You really need to snug the straps to get a decent seal and then the magnetic clips tend to not hold. In addition, the hose connection piece to this mask seemed quite leaky and my wife complained about the noise. The pieces that the magnetic clips are attached to do not inspire confidence. I would question the durability of this mask. In the end I returned to the F10 and it was like revisiting an old friend. I like the concept of this mask but the execution is lacking IMHO.
I like not having the mask off my nose. It was getting sensitive from my other mask. It is much more comfortable and I rest better. The nose part could use a little work, doesn't quite stay on my nose so well, but overall I am happy!
Tried for first time last night. Under-nose pillow took some getting used to; finally did, and fell asleep, but on side, woke up 2 hours later with the plastic digging into my face an hurting. Had to take it off. Am returning and going to try conventional full-face mask (only had nasal mask previously, which I liked but my nasal passages are often not clear due to allergies, so I wake up with a headache because enough air can't get through).
**Gilda, even though that mask is a favorite with some it may not work for everyone. I am glad to see you returned it to us and got something better suited to you and we hope you are getting some good sleep now!
After using an F10 mask for years, I decided to try this F30 primarily out of long time frustration from trying to wear reading glasses in bed. WOW! Was I pleased w this purchase. The F30 is a little tougher to get properly situated under my nostrils, but once on (using my vanity mirror helps), this full face mask is awesome! No more issues w reading glasses not fitting, comfortable breathing through mouth or nose, easy hose connect if I must get out of bed during night. Very happy I made this investment in my comfort!
I purchased this mask to use when I need a break from the Comfort Fit Blue Gel. Works well and is comfortable to wear. The only negative would be if you sleep on your side, the mask may move and/or the magnetic catch lets loose. Probably more me than the mask. I am a very restless sleeper.
I do not understand how the template is used to determine the size, it is not clear, where I see a video
Please print out the sizing gauge and follow the instructions below:
How to use the fitting template:
1. Please ensure the template
is printed to scale
2. Cut out along dotted line
3. Refer to diagram on template
to determine appropriate
4. Place the template below your nose perpendicular to your face.
Narrow nose: start with the blue/red side of the template
Wide nose: start with the black/purple side of the template
5. If your nose falls inside or outside the margins on the template or
between two sizes, choose the large one.
6. Select appropriate cushion for your starter pack (standard or
small) if your nose size is S (red) or M (blue) and SW (purple). If
your nose is W (black), you'll need to order the cushion separately.
The standard and small starter pack come with three cushion sizes:
S, M, and L. Standard starter pack also comes with standard
frame; small starter pack also comes with small frame.
Hope this helps.
Здравствуйте! Хочу купить эту маску сипап . Russian.
I switched to this mask from the AirFit F10. I am primarily a side sleeper, and this mask is far superior to the F10 for that sleep position. I experience a lot fewer leakage issues, and it is also more manageable when wearing glasses to read/watch TV before sleeping. I find the headgear doesn't need to be nearly as tight to maintain a decent seal which is not only more comfortable, but minimizes those pesky strap marks in the morning. I also had an ongoing problem with the F10 leakage being primarily from the top of the mask, meaning a choice between being so tight the bridge of my nose was constantly sore, or sore, dry eyes in the morning from having air blown against them all night. The F30 fixes that issue completely.
It took a bit to find the best way to get the mask to 'settle' right for the nasal openings, I find gently spreading the top of it and placing it against my nostrils before releasing works best for me.
The sole thing I don't like is the magnetic catches, the one against the pillow will sometimes detach while I'm sleeping. The mask fits so well that I frequently don't realize that's happened until I wake in the morning and remove it, but does result in my leak rate going over the acceptable margin.
