Air Touch N20
#1
Question 
So I'm due to reorder CPAP supplies. I've been using the Fischer and Paykel Eson mask for awhile. I'm a side sleeper and really struggle trying to keep a seal and so far the Eson stays on the best. I've been using my CPAP for a couple of years now and am finally reaching a point where some mornings I wake up and actually find it still on my face, rather than the floor. However, I still struggle with comfort and keeping a seal while side sleeping and most mornings wake up to find it on the floor.

So I got an email from Resmed about the Air Touch N20 with the memory foam. Sounds like it might be more comfortable. Anyone tried it and what is your opinion, especially for side sleeping? Can it hold a seal for a side sleeper?

This is the first I've heard of an AirTouch N20 with foam cushion. California always gets the good stuff first Unsure  (The foamy AirTouch F20 grets mixed reviews) 

I've been using a Wisp for some time now; it seals better than the N10, and the silicone N20 almost seems like a copy of the Wisp, in terms  of its double seal up the sides.

I looked at the name again and its the AirFit N20, not AirTouch. Sorry about that

I tried the N20 briefly, and stayed with the Wisp. It all depends on the shape of your face, I think.. As I recall, the Wisp is a little wider at the base than the N20.

Not sure if you're a side sleeper or restless shifter, but I can attest to an increase in comfort and a bit of a better seal. With the foam it just requires a tad bit more upkeep.

My AHI = 31.8.  Since 2015 I try to get 6+ hours a night using an Airsence 10 and feel pretty rested after a night.  Yay CPAP therapy!  My review of the mask is simple - Started with a ResMed AirFit P10 Pillows 62930– loved the nose cushions but the mask head strap slid off when I turned over at nigh and stretched out over time.  The N20 is a far superior mask and might loosen up when I turn over but not really a problem after 6 months so far.  There is no stretching the head straps as they don’t stretch and are adjustable which makes the N20 good for years of service.
 
Now if Resmed could adapt the P10 nose pillow to the fit the N20 mask we would really be moving forward in my opinion.
