Easy question about the Resmed AirTouch F20 for Her

Easy question about the Resmed AirTouch F20 for Her
Wife just started APAP a couple of weeks ago. First mask she bought (Amara View) was really comfortable and lightweight but a bit inconsistent on leaking from night to night, so she bought a Resmed AirFit F20 for Her in a small size to see if works better. Trying it tonight, but after looking at the sizing card that comes in the box, it's gonna be real close if she needs the small or the medium. 


My understanding is that the 'for her' headgear is one size.

If she needs the larger size (medium) for the mask...
is the frame the same size on all sizes, and we would just have to buy a medium cushion?
Or do we have to buy both a medium frame and a medium cushion?

You can just buy a medium cushion it will fit in your existing frame

RE: Easy question about the Resmed AirTouch F20 for Her
Update...she's been using the Amara View for a few months and it's started leaking really bad on her for some reason. We've got some extra cushions so we'll start there and see if that helps.

Her backup mask, the Airtouch F20 for Her is lightweight and comfortable she says and really likes it and gets some great AHI numbers with it, but she's said it sorta squishes the top of her nose where she can't really breathe out of the top part of her nose. Anyone else run into this at all?

Or anyone know if the Airfit F10 or Quattro FX for Her is easier or wider on the top of the bridge of the nose? I've read somewhere the F10 is designed a little wider--is that true?

Make sure the mask is not too tight. They are designed to be worn loose. Just enough to stop leaks. As far as f1o my experience ie the f20 felt a little larger on the bridge of my nose.

OP,

Resmed makes a model similar to the Amara View, called the Airfit F30. It might be worth looking into, since it sits below the nose, not on the bridge.
