[Equipment] Recommendation for ResMed’s latest AirFit masks having hose port at top of head
Recommendation for ResMed’s latest AirFit masks having hose port at top of head
Big Grin This is a happy update to my prior post titled “Need a non-welt producing Full Face mask”

Kudos to the “Large Male” member known by the sobriquet “Big Guy” [Image: thanks.gif]who suggested I take a closer look at ResMed masks. I had foolishly written off their latest copy-cat appearing versions of Dreamware’s nasal and FF masks because as viewed in pictures they appeared to be identical. What I didn’t see was the ResMed nose pillow had a contoured shape whereas the Dreamwear pillows are shaped for users that chase parked cars. Yup, Dreamwear pillows are for people having square heads and/or flat faces. Mine tended to easily leak with any amount of movement. So I had to overtighten the restraints.

like I love the ResMed AirFit F30i Full Face. Molds to my nose in an air tight manner.  First night AHI was 0.6, my best score to-date. It hasn’t leaked once nor has it required me to overly tighten the mask restraints. And for some unknown reason I don’t have to tape my mouth shut.[Image: dont-know.gif] May take me awhile to figure that out. 

Bottom line: I highly recommend the F30i. Unlike previous F30’s, the F30i has the hose connection on top of the head which is a major improvement in comfort and leak prevention.

Good to know that it's working well for you. 

I rarely get a compliment, and when I do, I like to shout out to the world, "Hey......I got a compliment"!!  Big Grin
