[Product Review] ResMed F40 Full Face Mask (* new *)
RE: ResMed F40 Full Face Mask (* new *)
Last night sucked! Even using my AirFit F30, it was bothersome. I only used it for a little over 2.5 hrs., and I took it off and went back to sleep. 

I have some nights like that. I showered and shaved prior to bed. Not sure if shaving irritated my skin somewhat, and the mask only added to the discomfort.  Dont-know

Per Post #81 by Big Guy, I think we all have had some odd, unexplainable, quirky nights with our masks. With my F30i, I would often wake up at 5 am and take off the mask because of discomfort and/or incessant leakage. Then I would fall back to sleep and wake around 7, and feel like that last 2 hours was the most refreshing part of my sleep.

So far, and with only a few nights with the F40, I have not found the need to do the same. Fingers are crossed that this will be the answer to all the other masks oddities and quirks.

I'll be posting a comprehensive review of the F40 once I log some meaningful hours on this thing. The good, the bad and everything in between. Hopefully it will help a few folks moving forward in their CPAP journeys.

I'm going back to using my AirFit F40 mask tonight. As much as I like my F30, it's just not performing for me like it used to. The cushion is new and overall, is in like new condition. 

I washed the cushion well last night prior to going to bed. I still had too many leaks. Anyways, the F40 it is. I'm fortunate to have the F20, F30, and the F40 on hand to choose from.

I'm a notorious side-sleeper and mouth-breather. For so long, the F30 worked great. Now.....not so much.  Oh-jeez

Not sure if it's just because it's hotter out or what, but I got in 1.5 hrs. of CPAP use last night, using my AirFit F40 mask. 

We had the bedroom window open with a box fan in it, pulling in some cool night air. We then had a wind storm blow thru, as it brought some rain with it. 

I had to get up and remove the fan and close the window. It was at that time that I took my mask off and called it quits for the night. Went back to bed and slept fine w/o my CPAP.
