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 quietair 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 ultracompact 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. With the exception of the AirMini, the AirFIt F30 full face mask should work with your current CPAP machine 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.
Please note: Mask Frame and Headgear are one size fits most.
