AirFit N30 Nasal Cradle CPAP by ResMed
The AirFit N30 Cradle CPAP Mask by ResMed features one of the simplest and most elegant designs in the industry.
This lightweight CPAP nasal mask weighs just under two ounces and is ready to use straight out of the box. The soft and simple design sits just under the nostrils, cradling the front and sides of the nose, and maintains the seal no matter what position you sleep in.
N30 Cradle Cushion
The N30 cradle cushion curves around the sides of your nostrils like a crescent to help prevent air leaks while conforming to your nose. Unlike nasal pillows, the nasal cushion does not go inside the nostrils but cushions them just under and on the sides.
It is soft enough not to cause skin and nose irritation. The soft silicone is thinner against the nostrils and more substantial near the mask for support.
ResMed N30 Headgear
The headgear is very minimal and smartly designed to provide little facial contact. This helps prevent marks after you take off your mask and helps leave your line of sight free to read or watch TV in bed.
The N30 headgear can be adjusted and is also split into two bands so you can move one part to the top of your head if you want. This simple design is lightweight but sturdy enough to hold your mask in place.
QuietAir Vent Technology - Mask Frame
The N30 Mask Frame allows you to choose a cushion of any size, and headgear replacement is easy, as well. The AirFit N30 frame has a soft yet flexible tube that connects with a swivel to your CPAP hose, making it even easier to turn in bed.
The N30 Mask Frame also features QuietAir vent technology that helps keep the mask quiet while diffusing the vented exhaled air away from you and your partner.
Fitting and Adjusting Your AirFit N30 CPAP Mask
- Hold the nasal cradle under your nose.
- Pull the head strap over the head.
- Adjust the split band elastic head strap to get a comfortable fit.
- Adjust the side clip to change the length of the headgear to correct for leaks.
- Attach the flexible tubing on the mask frame to your CPAP equipment.
Caring for Your N30 CPAP Mask
Wash your cushion daily and your headgear and mask frame weekly.
- Soak in warm water with a mild liquid soap for no longer than 10 minutes.
- Use a soft bristle brush to clean the inside and outside of the cushion.
- Use a soft bristle brush to remove debris at the vent holes.
- Thoroughly rinse the components under running water.
- Air dry away from direct sunlight.
Respshop Product Review
By Susan – Certified Sleep Science Coach
We were all tremendously excited to see the new ResMed N30 Cradle CPAP mask because the ResMed P10 Mask has been so popular. Unfortunately, not everyone can tolerate nasal pillows, so welcome aboard AirFit N30 – we are so glad to see you!
I took this mask home the night we got it in stock; I was anxious to see how it performed. I love the minimalist design and the non-obstructed view of this CPAP mask since I like to read in bed. The Cradle Cushion does a great job of sealing without leaking, and it is very gentle to the nostrils.
The headgear on this mask is adjustable, and the strap is split into two, so you have the option for top-of-the-head support if you need that. The other thing I really enjoyed was the exhalation port which dissipates the airflow so neither you nor your partner feels any air blowing out of the mask.
We really like this mask, and we think you will, too!
Recommended If You Have Facial Hair
Traditionally shaped triangular nasal masks that sit on the bridge of the nose and anchor on the lower lip might cause hiccups with the fit for beard lovers. But nasal masks that rest under the nose fit many with facial hair superbly.
The ResMed AirFit N30 uses an under-the-nose cushion that rests high on the upper lip. This mask also features a frame and headgear that outline the periphery of facial hair for many people.
When shopping for a CPAP mask to wear with facial hair, don’t fall into the trap of sizing up. Use the sizing guide and select the size that fits your facial structure. Over-sizing results in leaks, frustration, and discomfort.

I’ve been using AirFit masks forever now and I’ve never had any issues with them. I was looking for a new lightweight mask that I could take on trips, something with a more simplistic frame. That’s how I ended up finding the N30 which looked light the perfect package for what I wanted. Normally I’ve used a full face mask but the N30 seemed so light that I decided to give it a try.
As mentioned, the frame is very barebones and lightweight. It’s basically one strap going around the head and the material is very light. You only need to adjust it at one point which makes it easy to get the sizing done as well. It reminds me of a swim goggle in a way, but much more comfortable since it uses a nice fabric.
This was my first nasal cushion so I was a little hesitant coming from a full face mask. But after using it on a few trips now, I’ve become very used to it and it performs excellently. The air flow is strong and comfortable, and I haven’t had any issues with leaking. It’s also soft and doesn’t leave any marks on my face. I’ve started using this mask full time as my primary mask and it’s doubtful if I’ll ever go back to full face. This just another excellent entry in AirFit’s lineup and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to a wide variety of users.
When it comes to lightweight masks that don’t sacrifice performance or functionality, the pickings are slim. I’ve tried many of them at my own expense, but I think the N30 has finally settled it for me. It’s an excellent mask that weighs almost nothing (_ 2 ounces) that works just as well as my regular masks.
The first few nights, I did have slippage issues and I was frustrated. I checked the product page and saw that RespShop posted a video about it, and they recommend moving one strap to the top of my head. After trying that, I found the fit was much better. It’s been a few weeks now and I haven’t had any issues with the mask shifting. Of course, I can’t guarantee the mask will hold well for anyone but I highly recommend people to try moving one of the straps to the top of the head. The straps themselves are feather light so I don’t even feel them at night. Keeps my eyeline clear too so I can use my laptop while in bed.
Other than that, the cushion is good. I’m never someone who really notices when masks are bad (except when they leak), but so far this one has been comfortable. Like I said, I haven’t noticed any leaks and the mask has been pretty quiet overall.
Really, I have nothing bad to say about this mask. It’s a mask that I would recommend without hesitation to any nasal mask users.
I always had a full headgear nasal setup and I didn't love it. It pulled at my hair and I hated the hose on my head. The biggest problem was the rashes and irritation I'd get from the nasal pad. This mask is very comfortable to wear, no irritation and no hair pulling. My only issue is leaks making a lot of noise coming from the nasal pad. I have a very narrow nose so I don't think this would be the case for anyone else.
So glad you found a better mask for you! Please contact our Respiratory Therapists at 1-866-936-3754 for some suggestions on the leak, they will have some ideas on how to help.
Subject: The Best Mask I Have Found
The usual easy ordering and prompt delivery, but the N30 mask impresses me even more than the usual great service from RespShop.
I have tried nearly all of the more recent ResMed masks. The headgear for the N30 is an improvement over the P10. The whole assembly I find to be a great improvement over the N20, which while comfortable is complicated, and the cushion rattles within the frame.
For me, the N30 provides the best of the P10 and N20. It projects air into my nose nearly as well as a pillow mask, while giving the greater comfort of a nasal mask.
I like the simplicity of this nasal unit and the fact that vision is not obstructed like ones with a part between the eyes for stability. BUT, I have to keep adjusting it to keep the air flow in the correct position. I have worked with adjusting the strap multiple times but it never works. If possible, I may have to return it. I am not feeling as rested in the mornings as I did with the other type.

Heard good things about resmed masks and I was looking for a new nasal mask, so I gave this a try. Very happy with it so far. Fits well and my sleep hasn't had any disruptions. The cushion is comfortable and the strap is lightweight.
This is the brand/mask are use in general. I love the airfit 30. It’s the most comfortable mask that I’ve tried. I think there’s this company that sells them offers the best price available that I could find.
Shortly after a few nights of using the mask the strap attachment on the mask failed. Trying now to come up with an idea to reattach it
We are sorry to hear that! Give us a call 866-936-3754 so we can exchange it for you.
Subject: New N30 mask
I like the new mask so far . It's light weight and very comfortable. It surprising how well it stays sealed, considering it just sits under my nostrils. Glad I bought it.
This mask is comfortable and easy to use. Easy on and off. I rated four stars as you have to play with the nose pillows to get it just right.
When I sleep it’s fine but after 3-4 hours it starts leaking which makes me restless
