Trying out the Airfit F20 and a question about the vents.
#1
Trying out the Airfit F20 and a question about the vents.
I'm still trying to find the mask that is right for me and I'm trying the AirFit F20. 

The vents are much smaller than the masks I've previous tried (simplus full face and amara view).

I'm a bigger guy and I'm concerned the tiny vents may not be enough.

Has anyone had an issue like this?

RE: Trying out the Airfit F20 and a question about the vents.
I'm 6-05 and weigh close to 285 lbs. I started out my SA therapy with an AirFit F20. It worked fine for me, but I was curious about the AirFit F30, and that's now what I'm using. 

No issues at all with the F20 or the F30.

The vendors got to great lengths to ensure sufficient venting occurs.

This has been on my mind, too. I appreciate the lack of air streams hitting me, and the quietness. And I just hope the company has made it safe.
