[Product Review] AirFit™ N20 Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
#41
RE: AirFit™ N20 Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
I have used the N20 for about 9 months and was always happy with it.  Hope you will find it comfortable as well

I just bought the N30i and find that I like it even better than the N20.  Only used it for a week and get great seal and low AHI.  Very comfortable to wear and rather minimalist on the front so viewing tv is much better.  Also I like that the air hose sits on top or you head—no more occasional   Hose around the neck syndrome—LOL

Good luck to you

RE: AirFit™ N20 Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
I have recently changed from the F20 to the N20 after I had a test N10 unit for a week. Honestly I should have asked for the N10 but rather though the newer version would be a smarter device . Although the N20 quite comfortable for any sleep position the wind blowing out from it puts a damper on my nights. I almost never turn around at night to face my husband as the wind will surely keep him awake. I dont know. I am considering the N30 but it's not available in South Africa and I already spend so much money in the last 6 months that I'm kinda stuck with the 1st 2 masks I have now.

RE: AirFit™ N20 Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
Been on APNEA therapy for over 10 years. Got a new DremStation S/T BIPAP and N20 mask about 6 weeks ago.  Have really tried to like the new mask - it's light, it's easy to remove and install in the dark and it's comfortable.  Have used both small and medium cushions, tried readjusting the headgear, but can't get it to stop leaking (and making crude sounds) when I try to lay on my side to sleep.  The only time it stops leaking (most of the time) is when I lay on my back.  I've even trimmed my mustache down away from my nose hoping that would help.  All I got for that was my wife asking, "What happened to your mustache?"  For the time being, I've put the N20 aside and gone back to my old faithful, ResMed Mirage SoftGel that I've used for years.  Would really like to make the N20 work.  Anybody got any suggestions please let me know. Dont-know

Anybody know why the N20 has small holes at the elbow and continually vents? What is the purpose of that?

So you won't rebreathe your CO2.

Every cushion has vent holes of some design, for exhalation to escape.
The jet of air can be annoying and disturb your sleep.  I wear long sleeves and soft fabric gloves to keep it off of my skin.

Okay, I never knew that. My first mask was the P10 and never noticed any air coming out of that one.

They all have different arrangements and sizes of escape holes.  Some diffuse the air better than others.

RE: AirFit™ N20 Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
I've experienced two broken Airfit N20 masks in under three months. I'm going to try something else, but thought I'd check here to see if anybody else has experience this or can suggest if I've done something wrong. The issue is the little plastic piece to which the mask cushion attaches breaks off. I don't think I've been rough with it, although I have had difficulty detaching the cushion for cleaning. As I have found no instances of this issue here or all kinds of Google searches, I'm wondering what I might be doing. Any thoughts?

I like the N20 cushion but not the frame or headgear, so I glued together an N20 cushion and short hose and put it through the frame hole in a Wisp frame and headgear.  It's comfortable, secure and works well.
