Wake up without the red

With a minimal-contact mask like AirFit F30, you’ll experience fewer facial marks than you would with a traditional full face mask. Its UltraCompact cushion is designed to seal securely under the nose to prevent top-of-the-nose soreness/irritation/red marks.1

More peace and quiet

Eliminate the wall of pillows separating you from your bed partner and curl up even closer wearing AirFit F30. It’s quieter than the market-leading, minimal-contact full face mask,4,5 with fewer sleep disruptions from vent flow noted by CPAP users and their bed partners.2 Featuring small, multidirectional openings over a widespread area, vent technology in the ResMed QuietAir™ elbow breaks up exhaled air so it’s spread out lightly.

Choosing the right mask cushion

 

  1. To determine your cushion size (small or medium), print the AirFit F30 full face mask fitting template to size and trim it from the paper. 
  2. Standing in front of a mirror, hold the template horizontally in front of your face and place it under your nose. Make sure it’s directly under the nostrils rather than on the top of the nose. 
  3. Select the matching UltraCompact cushion size (small or medium) based on where the outer edge of your nostrils contacts the template. Cushion size is based on the width of your nose (rather than its length). 
  4. If the width of your nose breaches the template margins, size up to a medium.

Initial mask inspection

  1. Remove all packaging.
  2. Perform a visual inspection of each mask component. 
  3. If any visible deterioration of a mask component is apparent (e.g. cracking, crazing, tears etc.), the mask component should be discarded and replaced. 
  4. A slight discoloration of the silicone components may occur and is acceptable.

Assembling the mask

  1. Ensure all the components of your mask are together.
  2. With the ResMed logo facing outwards and up, insert the upper headgear straps into the frame from the inside and fold the fastening tab over to secure. 
  3. Hold the top and bottom of the UltraCompact cushion and connect it to the mask frame.
  4. Squeeze the quick-release buttons on either side of the QuietAir elbow and pull down to reattach it to the frame. 
  5. Twist the mask elbow to make sure it’s rotatable, but secured in place. 

Fine-tuned fitting

  1. Twist and pull both magnetic clips away from the mask frame.
  2. Place the UltraCompact cushion under your nose and ensure it feels comfortable. The cushion opening should be placed directly under your nostrils so it hugs your nose and mouth. Do not place your nose inside of the cushion opening or allow the mask cushion to overlap with your nose. 
  3. Ensure the ResMed logo is facing up as you pull the one-size-fits-all headgear over your head.
  4. Bring the lower headgear straps behind your ears and attach the magnetic clips to the mask frame on both sides.  
  5. Undo the fastening tabs on the lower headgear straps, pull the straps evenly and refasten them. Repeat with the higher headgear straps and then with the headgear strap on the top of the head.
  6. Ensure the headgear is in its proper position (not resting too high or too low on your head). If the headgear sits too close to your ears, adjust the upper headgear straps. If the headgear sits too low behind your ears, adjust the lower headgear straps.
  7. Connect the air tubing from your CPAP machine to the QuietAir elbow.
  8. Reattach the QuietAir elbow to your AirFit F30 frame. You’re now ready to begin therapy.

If you have long hair...

  1. If you have long hair, your mask may not feel as comfortable as it should when your hair is down and in the way. 
  2. We recommend feeding long hair through the straps on the back of the headgear.
  3. If you tie your hair in a ponytail, it should sit high enough to fit comfortably through the straps on the back of the headgear.

Disassembling the mask

  1. Disconnect the air tubing from the QuietAir elbow so the CPAP machine is no longer connected to the mask. 
  2. Undo the upper headgear fastening tab and pull strapping away from the frame. Keep the magnetic clips attached to the lower headgear straps.
  3. Squeeze the quick-release buttons on either side of the QuietAir elbow and pull up to detach it from the frame.
  4. Hold the top and bottom of the UltraCompact cushion and pull it away from the frame.

Managing mask leak

  1. Leak often occurs when your mask’s seal is compromised by movement, incorrect fitting or improper sizing.
  2. To find the source of the leak, run your finger along the top and bottom edges of the UltraCompact cushion to feel if any air is escaping. There is an intentional vent on the front of the cushion where air will flow through. This is normal. 
  3. Adjust the mask cushion by gently pulling it away from your face and letting it reseal itself.
  4. Adjust the top, upper and/or lower headgear straps as needed to achieve a more secure seal. Avoid overtightening the headgear straps – adjust them just enough fix the mask leak.
  5. Check to ensure the mask frame is secure and that the QuietAir elbow and air tubing are not pulling on your mask.
  6. If the mask leak continues, contact your equipment provider.

Daily mask cleaning

  1. You should clean the QuietAir elbow, mask frame and UltraCompact cushion after each use to help prevent deterioration. Follow the mask disassembly instructions.
  2. Soak the mask components in warm water and a mild liquid detergent. Ensure there are no air bubbles.
  3. Shake the mask components vigorously in the water for at least one minute and then clean each of them with a soft bristle brush. Pay particular attention to cleaning the rotatable elbow, vent holes, frame where the arms connect, and inside and outside the frame where the elbow connects.
  4. Rinse the mask components thoroughly under running tap water.
  5. Leave the mask components to air dry away from direct sunlight.
  6. Repeat these daily cleaning steps if your mask components are not visibly clean.

Weekly mask cleaning

  1. The AirFit F30 one-size-fits-all headgear should be cleaned weekly to help prevent deterioration. 
  2. Follow the “Disassembling the mask” instructions. Magnetic clips can remain attached to the headgear during cleaning. 
  3. Hand wash the headgear in warm water with a mild liquid detergent. Ensure there are no air bubbles.
  4. Rinse the headgear thoroughly under running tap water.
  5. Squeeze the headgear with a clean towel to remove excess water.
  6. Leave each of the components to air dry away from direct sunlight.
  7. If the headgear is not visibly clean, repeat the weekly cleaning steps.

Ongoing mask inspection

 

  1. To maintain optimum therapy performance, check your mask regularly for signs of damage and/or deterioration (e.g. cracking, crazing, tears etc.).
  2. Check each mask component as it's cleaned, including the one-size-fits-all headgear, mask frame, QuietAir elbow, UltraCompact cushion and air tubing.
  3. If any mask component appears to be damaged, it may need to be replaced. Contact your equipment provider.
  4. You should replace your mask components regularly to help prevent mask deterioration from occurring and also to help optimize mask performance.
    We recommend the following replacement schedule: *
    - UltraCompact cushion: every month
    - Air tubing: every 3 months
    - Headgear: every 6 months

    *Replacement cycles may vary depending on your insurance coverage. 

Disconnect and reconnect to therapy

 

  1. You may need to get up during the night. AirFit F30 was designed to make disconnecting and reconnecting to therapy fast and easy.
  2. First, make sure your CPAP machine is turned off by pressing the ON/OFF button on the top.
  3. Then, locate the quick-release buttons on either side of the QuietAir elbow. Squeeze both buttons at once and pull up to detach the mask elbow from the mask frame in a single click. 
  4. To reconnect to therapy, simply reattach the QuietAir elbow to the mask frame in a single click. You can do this by squeezing the quick-release buttons on either side of the QuietAir elbow and pulling down. 
  5. Twist the mask elbow to make sure it’s rotatable, but secured in place.  
  6. Press the ON/OFF button on the top of the CPAP machine to resume therapy.
