Each patient can find this model usable and suitable for her/his needs.

What is more, the design of the AirTouch F20 allows switching between the AirFit 20 cushions. More specifically, replacing the memory foam cushion with the Infinity Seal from the AirFit20.
There are two versions of the ResMed AirTouch F20 full face mask: the standard model for him and an improvised version for her.
ResMed AirTouch F20 Full Face Mask For Him
ResMed AirTouch F20 Full Face Mask For Her
The softest, most gentle CPAP mask on the market
As mentioned above, the ResMed AirTouch F20 is the first mask which uses Ultra Soft memory foam. The cushion design is 30-day disposable. This feature allows the mask to combine comfort and performance. The cushion easily adapts to almost anyone’s face. A recent study shows that 98% of the patients find the mask suitable to their face.
Apart from being suitable, the mask is quite lightweight and provides a breathable seal. So, no matter the therapy pressure level, the mask will always stay in place. Apart from wearing it through the night, the mask will prevent any red face marks or irritations.
ResMed offers a version “For her” too. This version comes in stylish lavender color and provides a smaller size range. The company truly tries to achieve the most personalized masks for each patient.
QuietAir Elbow vent technology
Speaking of the vent technology, ResMed has designed the QuietAir as a feature within the mask elbow. The QuietAir makes the mask 89% quieter and 70% gentler than before.
More specifically, the design of the ResMed AirTouch F20 vent technology consists of a widespread area filled with small multidirectional openings. The exhaled air is broken through the technology and spread out lightly through the openings.
This way, the patient doesn’t have to worry about the bed partner or anyone in his/her environment. The mask allows a peaceful and quiet atmosphere, simultaneously a great feeling because of the stylish design.
Fast and easy maintenance
Silicone masks usually come with a great drawback – the maintenance which is usually difficult and time-consuming. One of the best features of the ResMed AirTouch F20 is the beyond simple and fast maintenance. The mask doesn’t require soap, nor water. It simply needs a quick wipe down with a non-alcoholic wipe.
The memory foam needs to be kept clean in order to feel fresh and hygienic every time you use the mask. The reduced cleaning requirements are usually a big pro for people who rush to get ready in the morning, giving them more time.
Magnetic Headgear Clips
The ResMed AirTouch F20 mask is connected to the headgear with magnetic headgear clips in order to provide easy use and straightforward functionality. The magnetic clips easily lock into place which allows the user to place the mask quickly. In addition to this, the removal of the mask is also effortless.
Compatible with AirMini
ResMed AirMini is the smallest and most portable CPAP in the marketplace. It is most suitable for traveling. It is compatible with AirMini, so this makes the model even more suitable for anyone’s needs.
Sizing Guide for ResMed AirTouch F20
In order to determine the size of the model, each patient is able to use the ResMed sizing guide. Once you trim to scale, you need to trim the sizing sample and hold the sizing guide near your face. Always use a mirror for this step!
The top of the sizing guide needs to correspond to the top of the nasal bridge. However, it is quite common for patients to be in between sizes. In this case, ResMed always recommends choosing the larger option for greater comfort and functionality.
Cons of ResMed AirTouch F20
Because of the high-value features and great performance, the ResMed is quite pricey. Many patients consider this model as expensive, yet there is the other group which understands the value of the characteristics and doesn’t feel overcharged.
Another feature which doesn’t add up to the pros of the model is the 30-day disposable cushion. More specifically, the cushion needs to be replaced every 30 days. However, this period can be extended with appropriate use and taking care of the part. It requires regular cleaning and if possible using a mask liner.
All in all, the mask has its own pros and cons. Every patient needs to check its features and consider if they are the ones which he/she demands. When it comes to CPAP masks, especially full face ones, the patients need to choose according to their needs instead of their wishes.
