ResMed QuietAir™ diffuser vent

ResMed QuietAir™ diffuser vent
Has anyone heard about a new product from resmed called,Resmed Quiet Air Diffuser.   It is suppose to be quieter than the present f20 and the expelled air is suppose to be gently dispersed.  Not sure if it is available yet.

I think that's just a bit of marketing spin on the F20 elbow / diffuser. eg, this is Resmed's F20 product page, where the QuietAir is mentioned. https://www.resmed.com/au/en/commercial-...h-f20.html

Try wearing a P10 at 20cm than switch to the F20 at 20cm. I did this yesterday and the F20 sounded like a Jet was taking off.   Too-funny

I'm seeing what DeepBreathing is referring to, and I have to agree. It is referring the elbow that connects to hose to the mask.

Apparently it's becoming available in mask kits for the F20. No confirmation if that inclusion is automatic or if you must ask for it. I'm trying to get one included in my supplies in 2 days. Coffee

Thanks for the feedback. I'd be thinking that any area that makes therapy more comfortable is a good thing. Coffee

Unfortunately, I didn't get my F20 through my DME, I bought it new off a forum member. If I could just get that elbow, then i'd be good to go....I really like the F20. I wish they would do this to the N20's elbow...that sucker puts out some air.
