In House Testing Tips: A Swift FX user tested the AirFit P10 and found it to be extremely lightweight and quiet. He was surprised and impressed by the diffused exhalation. Once he found the optimal positioning of the headgear the nasal pillows maintained a comfortable and reliable seal. The headgear for the AirFit For Her is the same length and width as the standard AirFit. Headgear Position Note: Initially and with both parts of the strap together, the tester found the tension against his nares too tight. However, splitting the two halves of the strap apart and positioning one forward on the crown and the other down below the bump on the back of the head made for a very comfortable fit. He found small adjustments of the strap position altered the tension effectively. The same fitting tip applies to both the AirFit and AirFit For Her.
AirFit™ & Oxygen Usage: The AirFit™ does not have an oxygen port. If supplemental oxygen is needed for therapy, consider using the Oxygen Enrichment Adapter.
AirFit™ & SmartStart or Auto-On Features: Features that automatically start the flow of therapy airflow may not work effectively with the AirFit ™Nasal Pillow Mask.
AirFit™ Compatibility: The AirFit P10 is compatible with single pressure CPAP machines, auto-adjusting APAP machines, and two-level BiPAP machines. Per ResMed the manufacturer, the AirFit™ Nasal Pillow Mask is not compatible with these two specific machines: "AutoSet CS 2" & "VPAP Adapt SV".
SnuggleCover for Short Tubes: The SnuggleHose Cover for Short Mask Tubes will fit the short tube of the AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask with Headgear.
Latex Free: As are all products by ResMed, the AirFit™ is latex-free. This product does not contain PVC, DEHP, or phthalates
The nasal pillows for the AIrFit P10 should be changed once every three to six months
Care & Cleaning
ResMed recommends washing the AirFit P10 mask daily using a mild soap or detergent. Here's how to wash your new AirFit P10:
- Rinse thoroughly in clear, running water after cleaning.
- Use a soft bristle brush to ensure the woven-mesh vent is free of dust and oil.
- The headgear should be washed weekly using mild soap, rinsed well, and allowed to air dry.
Where do I find the size?
The plastic rim of the nasal pillow is color-coded by size. The size is also indicated by the letter on the bottom side of the pillows. All size nasal pillows fit both the AirFit™ and AirFit™ For Her. The AirFit™ P10 mask frame does not have a size because it is universal.
- Pink = Extra Small (EX)
- Clear = Small (S)
- Medium = Gray (M)
- Large = Blue (L) - Not included with AirFit™For Her
Tips for Putting the AirFit™ on in a Darkened Room: It can be difficult to put any mask on in a dark room. Having some orientation tricks that work by feel rather than sight will help.
The plastic pillow frame of the AirFit™ has raised lettering that says RESMED. The word RESMED faces up, toward the nose, when in the correct orientation. Some people find it easiest to feel the raised lettering with a fingernail, others with the ball of a finger or thumb. Either way, feel for the raised lettering and face it upward to position the nasal pillows correctly.
The plastic headgear stabilizers that hold the fabric headgear curve upward towards the ears. The curve goes up like a smile, not down like a frown. In a darkened room, feel for the upward curve of the headgear to help orient the mask.
AirFit™ and AirFit™ For Her QuickFit™ Headgear Size: The only difference between the headgear used by theAirFit™ and AirFit™ For Her QuickFit™ is the color. The AirFit™ For Her headgear is pink and gray while the AirFit™ headgear is blue and gray. Both sets of headgear are the same length, size, and shape.
AirFit™ QuickFit™ Headgear Adjustments: The length of the headgear is one size only. In order to adjust the tension on the nasal pillows against the nasal openings, move the split headgear straps. Loosen the fit by moving the two straps farther apart, or tighten the fit by moving the two straps closer together.
For further adjustments, try the following:
- Move one or both straps closer to the front of the head or further back on the head.
- Use the included headgear clips to gather and tighten the headgear strap.
QuickFit™ Headgear Reforming: Per the manufacturer, washing the QuickFit elastic headgear helps to return it to its original shape and form. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for washing the headgear, as noted below on this tab.
