ResMed’s first minimal-contact full face CPAP mask, AirFit F30, is now available in the United States and Canada.

AirFit F30 fits 93% of patients, according to ResMed, and features a minimal-contact cushion that sits just below the nose, preventing top-of-the-nose red marks and irritation, plus reducing feelings of claustrophobia for some full face wearers. It also has ResMed’s QuietAir vent, making the mask quieter than ambient noise in the bedroom.

According to the company, patients preferred the AirFit F30 nearly 2 to 1 over the current market leader in minimal-contact full face masks.

“AirFit F30 is a clear choice over other minimal-contact full face masks,” said Jim Hollingshead, president of ResMed’s Sleep business. “We’re excited to now offer it, along with the rest of our full face, nasal and nasal pillows options, for an easy, comfortable, stable fit and a great night’s sleep.”

More information on the AirFit F30 is included with the product announcement from ResMed.
