Hi y’all! Layne from CPAP.com, here to talk to you about the new CPAP mask, the F30, that’s launching today.
It will be on our website at 1 PM. This mask is a full face mask and is compatible with all machines (except for the AirMini). ResMed has said that they will make this mask compatible with the AirMini later on, but not at this time. I’m going to tell you a little bit about it, covering some of the highlights. On this side, there’s a place for your nose and mouth. It’s very low profile.
Not only does the elbow swivel 360 degrees, but it also pivots up and down. If you’re an active sleeper and you’re moving around, the mask moves with you. The elbow has a quick release. If you need to get up in the middle of the night, you simply push the clips on the side and it comes right out. When it goes back in, it makes a nice hearty clicking sound which is very rewarding, so you know it’s back in place.
The headgear is padded and very comfortable. To put it on, you simply pull the mask over and clip the headgear to the frame using these little magnets. It’s very easy to get on and off. Another really great thing about this mask is that it’s very low-profile. That means I could watch TV, wear my glasses; I could read a book– all while wearing my mask and getting ready for bed and winding down for the day.
The mask design-wise is similar to other low-profile full face masks, like the DreamWear Full Face Mask and the Amara View. I’d like to point out the differences. The magnet on the F20 and the F30 is a superior magnet. On the DreamWear Full Face, I find that I’m able to easily pull it apart. This one really stays in place. The Amara View uses a little hook, which I find somewhat hard to undo. The F20 and the F30 are really great for that.
ResMed says they’re only doing small and medium-sized cushions with this mask. They have done some studies and suggested that most people are going to be a small or a medium, so even if you’re using a large in a different style mask, I would urge you to give a different size a try. Why? What have you got to lose with CPAP.com? All our masks come with free return insurance. Give it a try. If it’s not going to be big enough for you, that’s ok! Send it back and get a full refund.
Interviewer: How About the Headgear and the Frame? Does it come in different sizes or is it one-size-fits-all?
It’s one size fits all on the headgear and the frame as well. Here’s the cushion. It pops right into the frame which is one-size-fits-all. No matter if you get a small or a medium, it pops right in and enjoy!
Interviewer: Thank you, Layne, for your presentation, I really appreciated you telling us everything there is to know about this mask.
It’s my pleasure, and we’ll see you at CPAP.com!
