First nite with Resmed N20

Yesterday I picked up my new CPAP machine, Resmed 10 Autoset.  Very quiet.

I was fitted with an Airfit N20 as they did not have the F20 in my size.  I have some comments on the N20.

I experienced no leaks that I could tell.  Very comfortable mask.  I will download my sleep results as I learn how.  My AHI was 1.? which I guess is pretty good.

I have a problem with the mask, however.  It has a rigid frame which pushes on my cheekbone and left a bruise.  I was a little sore in the AM.  It is now 1 PM and the bruise is still there.  Wondering if the harness itself comes in a larger size as it looks like I have all the straps close to the loosest settings.  My mask is size large and I wonder if the harness is also that size and if so, if they make an extra large.

Trying to decide weather to sleep another night with the N20 or whether to go back to my Fisher and Paykel.

Thank you all!

I hope I understand you question correctly, but the headgear that comes with the "standard" N20 run on the small side (that is too say, will fit a man with medium sized head. The standard size was way too small for me (big head). There is a Large sized head gear option. That's what I needed.

I find the cushions suffer the opposite problem. A large is HUGE! I'm now using a small cushion and a large headgear.

I believe each size cushion may take a different frame. Bummer.
