Anyone's F20 Quiet Air Elbow Not Diffusing/Venting ANY Air?
RE: Anyone's F20 Quiet Air Elbow Not Diffusing/Venting ANY Air?
I trialed an AirFit mask with the Standard Elbow, but when I went to swap it for my own mask, they sold me one with a Quiet Elbow (didn't realise until I got it home). I have had trouble ever since. Waking up 15 or more times a night with "burping" along the edges of the mask. I have also started getting headaches again and feeling tired. Plus I liked the reassurance of feeling the air escape that the trial mask gave me. So I googled up Resmed Airfit F20 elbow and found that you can still buy the Standard one online. Arrived yesterday. Last night I feel I got a better night's sleep. "Burping" along the seal was a lot less (maybe 5 times). I don't know if the better night's rest was because of the "Standard" elbow or not, but I feel more assured knowing that air is venting properly. $50 for peace of mind was worth it.
