- Good day everyone, Nick here again,
from CPAP Reviews.
And today I'm gonna be taking you through
the latest Mask from ResMed,
which is called the AirFit F20.
And this mask carries on
from their F10 full face mask,
which was quite a good mask,
but they've made a few improvements to that mask,
and now they bring you the F20 mask.
So in the video, I'm gonna be talking
a little bit about some of the features of the mask
and why it might be a good buy for you
if you wear a full face mask.
And I'll also provide a few links in the description
to things like the size guide
and where you can actually purchase the mask from.
So without further ado, I'll just show you the mask,
so you can have a bit of a look at it.
I'll give you a bit of a pan 360,
and that way you can sort of see how the mask looks.
So, I'm just gonna bring this up to the screen here.
Right, so you can have a bit of a sticky beak.
And lets go around the back.
So the head gear I've got on this mannequin,
I just haven't tightened it up enough there,
but normally it would sort of sit like that
at the back of the head there.
All right, so one of the big features about this mask,
is that it has an open visibility mask design
and what that means is you don't have anything
up here on the forehead.
This is good for a few reason,
one you're not gonna get marks on your forehead.
Some people when you've got a forehead support,
you wake in the morning
and it sort of looks like you've been headbutted
or something like that.
And sometimes those marks can take a bit of time
to go away in the morning and stuff like that for work.
The other thing is some people get a bit claustrophobic
when they've got something up
in front of their face as well.
So having it below the eyes
can be beneficial for those people.
Another thing is sometimes people like to hop into bed
and put on their mask and they'll read,
or they might want to watch a bit of TV
just while they're sort of getting settled into bed.
And this can be beneficial
because it does sit low, below the eyes,
and then it comes up low underneath the eyes
and up high up over the ears.
All right, so that open visibility design is quite popular.
And I think that it's quite good.
Some of the manufacturers have struggled a little bit
without having that forehead support
and tying the mask up here
because it weakens the part on the bridge of the nose there,
which can sometimes lead to air leaks,
you know, coming out from the mask,
especially if you're on a high pressure.
And that sort of leaks into your eyes
and sort of becomes quite annoying
in the middle of the night when you're lying there
and air is shooting into your eyes
and it can irritate the eyes as well,
make them quite dry.
But they've made a new,
what they call the infinity seal
with this mask
to strengthen areas up here,
to help with that
so that you don't get those air leaks into the eyes.
So they've changed the inside of the seal there
and I'll show you that in a minute.
Another great feature about this mask is the head gear.
It's very, very soft.
Okay, the Velcro is really good.
So it's quite durable,
and that means it's going to last a long time.
So as long as you're not frequently doing this,
this, this all the time, you know, the Velcro is gonna last.
But it definitely is,
they've got a very nice soft material here.
Okay, so it feels really nice there.
Probably my favorite feature is the magnetic clips, okay.
And this is really good for those people
who struggle with dexterity.
Those people who might have arthritis in their hands,
things like that, you know.
Sometimes trying to get those clips in
or hook those clips over can be quite a challenge,
especially in the middle of the night.
You know, if you're taking your mask off
to go to the bathroom or something like that,
or just in general,
a lot of people struggle just trying to find
where those clips go
and it can be quite frustrating.
So this mask actually has,
I'll show you what they look like,
All right, now this just means that you just,
it just basically grabs hold of itself.
Okay, so that's easy.
So all you gotta do is when you go to put your mask on,
you just go click and click
and the magnets basically grab themselves.
So you're not fiddling
and struggling with the mask clips.
So that's a really good feature.
I really liked the magnetic clips,
I think that's genius.
So the quick release elbow diffuser is another feature.
That's this part on the front here.
So if you just pinch at these points,
the actual diffuser just pops off.
Now, this is good
because what you can do
is you can actually leave that part in your tubing.
And so when you go into the bathroom of a nighttime,
or if you want to quickly, you know, take your mask off,
you can just pinch that leave that in the tubing,
leave your mask on.
You can breathe because it's got a nice big hole here
at the front.
So you can breathe quite easily
and then when you come back,
all you gotta do is just push that in.
And it's quite easy to find
and it's back in ready to go.
The diffuser also sort of, goes right round
and it's got a bit of play in it as well.
So it's kind of good when you're moving around in bed
because you're, you know, when you're moving,
the tube's gonna shift with you and move with you,
which is quite good.
What else have we got?
So the mask itself for the male comes in small,
medium and large.
And they also do for her,
which instead of being this blue color
is like a lavender color.
And that comes in small and medium
and they reduced the mask cushion sizes.
The head gear is, you can also get in,
in multiple sizes as well,
just in case you've got a big noggin like mine
or you're shopping for hats at OshKosh,
like a couple of mates of mine.
So yeah, from more reports the mask is doing quite well.
You know, it's quite a good seal mask.
I'll show you that cushion now, just while I remember.
The mask is super light,
like it really is light
and the diffuser,
they've kept that diffuser at the front here.
You can see these little holes that run there
and it also carries up underneath here as well.
So the diffuser is quite good in the fact
that it's not, it diffuses the air quite evenly
and disperses the air quite quietly,
but also it's not aimed at anyone.
So it does diffuse, yeah
around the mask instead of out at the mask then.
So let me show you this cushion.
So the cushion part,
you can just sort of pop it off from the frame.
I just sort of pull it off.
So this is your cushion.
They're kind of all going for this cushion now
that sort of, you know, hard plastic on this side
and then sort of connects this softer Silicon part here.
If you look in here, you can see,
see that just in here where they've reinforced it.
Just in there.
So they've reinforced this sort of hard section.
It's a bit harder in here and quite, quite soft down here,
like, like the Fisher and Paykel simplus cushion,
Very soft here, so you want to be very gentle
when you're washing it at this part.
Whereas up here, you know,
you've got the reinforcement at this port here
and then up here, again, very soft,
where the bridge of the nose is.
So it's pretty cool.
You know, it's certainly,
the engineers have gone to town
and who knows how they make them,
but they've done something good.
- So easy to takeoff.
It just sort of pulls off like that.
So all I do is sort of grab the frame with one hand,
the cushion with the other hand
and just pull and it just pulls off.
So that's nice and easy for washing.
You can just take it off, easy to wash, bring it back,
rinse it off, click it in
and it just sort of clicks in my that.
It makes it a little bit of a clicking noise.
It didn't really do it that time,
but normally it would.
There you go, click.
So the parts that you've got there,
is your head strap,
your frame, which is this part here.
And then your quick release.
So it looks like four parts there.
- Click in,
So nice and easy to put together.
Nice and easy to take apart, very light.
The magnetic clips,
which make it very simple
to clip on and clip off of a nighttime.
Quick-release with the diffuser
and a good infinity seal,
which is good for keeping
the air inside the mask
and not blowing out into your eyes
and making the mask noisy and uncomfortable.
Alright, like I said,
I'll put the size guide in the description below,
so you can check that out.
It's pretty easy, you just print it off
and you know, you can measure up your face
with the size guide just to work out which size you need.
The majority of men, probably 70, 80%
are gonna be medium masks.
You're gonna have the rest,
sort of in the large category.
And only a few generally are in the smaller category.
And majority of females are in the small to medium category
and you can get your pretty little lavender mask as well.
Not that the CPAP is that stylish,
but I guess anything helps when you're dealing
with CPAP masks and the like.
Also I'll put a link to another video
that you'll see pop up,
probably in this corner here,
which is for the new N20 ResMed nasal mask.
So you can check out that video on there as well.
