A quieter mask experience

AirFit F30 is quieter than DreamWear (21 vs. 24 dBA).2,3 Featuring small, multidirectional openings over a widespread area, the ResMed QuietAirTM vent technology in the elbow of AirFit F30 breaks up exhaled air so it’s spread out lightly so patients can get closer to their bed partners.

Support

Choosing the right mask cushion

  1. Use the AirFit F30 full face mask fitting template included in your AirFit F30 box and your best judgment to determine the right cushion size for patients. 
  2. Hold the sizing template horizontally under the nose. Place it directly under the nostrils rather than on the top of the nose. Assess whether their nose falls inside or exceeds the width or length margins on the template to determine their cushion size. 
  3. Select the matching UltraCompact cushion size (small or medium) based on where the outer edge of the patient’s nostrils contacts the sizing template. Cushion size is based on the patient’s nose width. 
  4. If the width of the nose breaches the template margins, size up (to medium). 

 

Fine-tuned fitting

  1. Twist and pull both magnetic clips away from the mask frame.
  2. Place the UltraCompact cushion under the patient’s nose and ensure it sits comfortably on the face. The cushion opening should be placed directly under the patient’s nostrils so it hugs their nose and mouth. The patient’s nose should never be placed inside of the cushion opening nor should the mask cushion ever overlap with the patient’s nose.    
  3. Ensure the ResMed logo is facing up as you pull the one-size-fits-all headgear over the patient’s head.
  4. Bring the lower headgear straps behind the patient’s ears and attach the magnetic headgear clips to the mask frame.
  5. Undo the fastening tabs on the upper headgear strap and pull evenly. Repeat with the lower headgear strap.
  6. Ensure the headgear is in its proper position (not resting too high or too low on the patient’s head). If the headgear sits too close to the patient’s ears, adjust the upper headgear strap. If the headgear sits too low behind the patient’s ears, adjust the lower headgear strap.
  7. Connect the air tubing from the patient’s CPAP machine to the QuietAir elbow.
  8. Reattach the QuietAir elbow to the mask frame. The mask is now ready to use.

Fitting patients with long hair

  1. For patients with longer hair, we recommend feeding their hair through the back of the headgear.  
  2. If tied in a ponytail, it should sit high enough to fit comfortably through the back of the headgear.

Disconnecting and reconnecting

  1. AirFit F30 was designed to be fast and easy for patients to slip on and off during the night. First, make sure the CPAP machine is turned off by pressing the ON/OFF button on the top.
  2. Then, locate the quick-release buttons on either side of the QuietAir elbow. Squeeze them both and pull up to detach from the mask frame in a single click. 
  3. To restart therapy, the patient simply reconnects the QuietAir elbow to the mask frame. 
  4. Squeeze the quick-release buttons on either side of the QuietAir elbow and pull down to reattach to the frame in a single click.
  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.

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.

Managing mask leak

  1. Locate where the air is escaping from, which is typically above or below the UltraCompact cushion. Note, there is an intentional vent on the front of the cushion where air will flow through. This is normal. If air is escaping, this is typically above or below the cushion. 
  2. Adjust the cushion by gently pulling it away from the patient’s face and letting it reseal itself.
  3. Adjust the top, upper and/or lower headgear straps as needed to achieve a more secure seal. To avoid overtightening the headgear straps, adjust them only enough for a comfortable seal.
  4. Check to ensure the mask frame is secure and that the QuietAir elbow and air tubing are not pulling on the mask.
  5. If leak continues, consider fitting the patient with a different size mask.

Daily mask cleaning

  1. The QuietAir elbow, mask frame and UltraCompact cushion should be cleaned after each use.
  2. Follow the mask disassembly instructions.
  3. Soak the mask components in warm water and a mild liquid detergent. Ensure there are no air bubbles.
  4. 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.
  5. Rinse the mask components thoroughly under running tap water.
  6. Leave the mask components to air dry away from direct sunlight.
  7. Repeat the daily cleaning steps if the mask components are not visibly clean.

Weekly mask cleaning

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

Assembling the mask

  1. Ensure you have all the mask components and parts 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 to the frame.
  5. Twist the mask elbow to make sure it’s rotatable, but secured in place.

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 from the frame.
  4. Hold the top and bottom of the UltraCompact cushion and pull it away from the frame. 

Ongoing mask inspection

  1. To maintain optimum therapy performance, your patient should check their mask regularly for signs of damage and deterioration (e.g. cracking, crazing, tears etc.).
  2. The patient should check each mask component as its 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.
  4. Patients should replace mask components regularly to help prevent mask deterioration from occurring and help optimize mask performance. 

Recommended resupply schedule: *   
• UltraCompact cushion: every month
• Air tubing: every 3 months
• Headgear: every 6 months

*Replacement cycles may vary depending on patient’s insurance coverage.
