AirTouch™ F20 Support

Fitting your mask

  1. Unclip the magnetic clips.
  2. With the mask held against the face, pull the headgear over the head. Ensure the top of the mask cushion is sitting comfortably at the top of the nasal bridge. The bottom of the headgear should settle comfortably at the top of the neck – with the top of the headgear sitting on the crown.
  3. Bring each of the magnets up to meet their corresponding clips on the frame.
  4. Adjust the tabs on the upper headgear.
  5. Adjust the tabs on the lower headgear.
  6. With the device still switched off, connect the device tubing to the mask elbow.
  7. Connect the elbow to the mask.
  8. To prepare the mask for therapy:
  9. Switch on the device and position the patient as if they were to begin therapy (e.g. lying down in bed).
  10. Adjust the upper straps.
  11. Adjust the lower straps.
  12. Practice reseating the cushion – turn off the device, pull the mask away from the face, allow the cushion to reassume its natural shape and then resettle the cushion on the face, with the top of the cushion sitting at the top of the nasal bridge.

Daily

  1. Disassemble mask.
  2. If necessary, wipe down the cushion with dry or non-alcoholic wipes only. Do not get the cushion wet.
  3. Rinse frame, elbow and cushion under running water. Clean each component with a soft brush.
  4. Soak components in warm water with mild liquid detergent for up to ten minutes.
  5. Shake components in water.
  6. Brush moving parts of elbow and around vent holes.
  7. Brush areas of frame where arms connect, and inside and outside the frame where the elbow connects.
  8. Rinse components under running water.
  9. Leave components to air dry out of direct sunlight – making sure to squeeze the arms of the frame to ensure excess water is removed.

Weekly

  1. Disassemble mask. The magnetic clips can remain attached to headgear during cleaning.
  2. Handwash headgear in warm water with mild liquid detergent.
  3. Rinse headgear under running water. Inspect to ensure headgear is clean and detergent-free. Wash and rinse again, if necessary.
  4. Squeeze headgear to remove excess water.
  5. Leave headgear to air dry out of direct sunlight.

How to manage leaks

  1. Leak often occurs when the mask’s seal is compromised by movement or improper sizing.
  2. To find a source of leak, run your finger along the edge of the mask’s seal. Once located, adjust the headgear.
  3. Resolve any leak in the upper part of the mask by adjusting the upper straps.
  4. Resolve lower mask leak with the lower straps.
  5. If leak persists, reseal by turning off your device, pulling the mask away from the face, allowing the cushion to reassume its natural shape, and then resettling the cushion on the face, with the top of the cushion sitting at the top of the nasal bridge.
  6. If leak continues, you may need a different size mask. Try our sizing guide to find the right fit for your patient.
