Before using your mask

Remove all packaging and inspect each mask component for visible deterioration.

Use the fitting template to assist in selecting the right size cushion and frame.

Fitting your mask

  1. Twist and pull both magnetic clips away from the frame.
  2. Place the cushion under your nose and ensure it sits comfortably against your face. With the ResMed logo on the headgear facing up, pull the headgear over your head.
  3. Bring the lower headgear straps under your ears and attach the magnetic clips to the frame.
  4. Undo the fastening tabs on the upper headgear straps and pull evenly. Repeat with the lower headgear straps.
  5. If the headgear is too close to the ear, adjust the top headgear strap.
  6. Connect the device air tubing to the elbow and attach the elbow to the mask, ensuring that it clicks in place.

Selecting a cushion size

  1. Use the AirFit F30 full face mask fitting template included in your AirFit F30 box and your best judgment to determine the right cushion size for patients.
  2. Hold the sizing template horizontally under the nose. Place it directly under the nostrils rather than on the top of the nose. Assess whether their nose falls inside or exceeds the width or length margins on the template to determine their cushion size.
  3. Select the matching UltraCompact cushion size (small or medium) based on where the outer edge of the patient’s nostrils contacts the sizing template. Cushion size is based on the patient’s nose width.
  4. If the width of the nose breaches the template margins, size up (to medium).

Disassembling your mask for cleaning

If your mask is connected to a device, disconnect the device air tubing from the mask elbow.

  1. Undo the fastening tabs on the upper headgear straps and pull them from the frame. Keep the magnetic clips attached to the lower headgear straps.
  2. Squeeze the side buttons on the elbow and detach from the frame.
  3. Hold the top and bottom of the cushion and separate from the frame.
Daily cleaning recommended after each use for the elbow, frame, and cushion
  1. Soak the components in warm water with a mild liquid detergent. Ensure that there are no air bubbles while soaking.
  2. Shake the components vigorously in the water for at least one minute and hand wash with a soft bristle brush. Pay particular attention to all connection areas, elbow vent holes and valves.
  3. Thoroughly rinse the components under running water.
  4. Squeeze the headgear to remove excess water. Leave the components to air dry out of direct sunlight.

If the mask components are not visibly clean, repeat the cleaning steps.

Adjustment

  • With the device turned on and blowing air, adjust the position of the cushion for the most comfortable fit under your nose. Ensure that the cushion is not creased and the headgear is not twisted.
  • To fix any leaks at the upper or lower part of the mask, adjust the top, upper or lower headgear straps. Adjust only enough for a comfortable seal and do not overtighten.
