The new Resmed Airtouch F20 full face mask
#71
Fred,

Smaller makes sense given what you mentioned. Smallest size practical means less area to leak. FFM has been only style I own. I haven't tried other styles yet, but I may do so in the future though.

I do acknowledge that at times the FFM is the only realistic option.

Find and watch the manufactures fitting video, it often contains hints on fit.

I believe that the F20 AirTouch is a must try for those that need a FFM.

In general try masks from least intrusive (Pillows) to most intrusive FFM.
Many mouth breathers (I am one) can, and do use pillows or a nasal mask.

Just trying to throw out alternatives for those that are leaking with their FFM (this is a FFM thread)

I am using the medium f20 touch (for her), maybe I should try the small too.  I have it on 30 day trial.  I can't seem to get rid of the leaks.  My problem is I am too cheap,  haven't convinced myself yet that the small is worth spending the $40.

I do like the mask, just wish I could get rid of the leaks..

Success last nite.! Leaks way down, ahi 2.5. Time to mark the mask. Hope this is a trend. It took me a week + to tweak.

My RT recommended using Water Wipes for cleaning my AirTouch F20. Wipes are pure water with very little aloe. 

Love my AirTouch F20. Very comfy. I am using a small mask with large headgear. My RT said their Resmed rep gave them free large headgear to use with small mask. My RT said they complaineed to Resmed that the headgear is too Smallbox and cause the mask to slip.

I found, on the contrary, that the F20 runs small. Smaller than the size chart that comes with it. Smaller than the F10. So, I guess I wouldn't recommend going smaller to get rid of leaks. Smaller would be great IMO, if it fits better. In that case, you'd probably have fewer leaks. But I wouldn't argue for a blanket rule that smaller=fewer leaks.
