As part of the ResMed AirFit Series, the AirFit F20 is an ultra-comfortable and highly therapy compliant mask. When comparing airfit F20 vs F10 we can say the shape of both masks is quite similar. AirFit F20 offers an open field of view, which makes it easy for patients to read or watch TV comfortably without having to adjust the mask or the frame. ResMed also added extra padding to the F20 face mask frame and headgear in order to improve comfort. The mask is also equipped with innovative technology InfinitySeal full face cushioning. The cushion begins at the nasal bridge and adjusts below the mouth. This helps ensuring comfortable CPAP therapy both to the mouth and the nose.

Airfit F20 CPAP mask

  • Open field of vision
  • Full face cushion for better therapy acceptance
  • Headgear + magnetic clips
  • Quick release elbow for added convenience
  • Air diffuser
  • Several sizes of headgear you can choose from

As you can note by comparing resmed F20 vs F10 many features are similar but the F20 is much more innovative, comfortable and therapy compliant mask. Even patients who need to use CPAP therapy for the first time will become quickly compliant with new therapy thanks to this comfortable mask.

Resmed Airfit F20Maximum visibility design

The design of the Airfit F20 allows for the mask to cover up both the mouth and the nose without the need of adding a forehead support. The frame of the mask basically sits low beneath the eyes while at the same time arises above the ears, something similar to a “winged” comfort design. The head of the patient is covered by a minimalistic amount of fabric because the mask frame connects with the headgear at the ears.

Thanks to this innovative and special design, both the mask and the headgear part sit in place without additional accessories such as a plastic frame of the support part. This open range of visibility is very much enjoyed by patients who struggle with claustrophobia or those who like to have an open field of vision during therapy for watching TV reading, writing, etc. In order to find the perfect fit for yourself, you should carefully analyze the AirFit F20 sizing guide offered by the manufacturer.

Several sizes of headgear available

In order to help provide each patient with a personalized fit and comfort, ResMed releases onto the market three different headgear sizes compatible with the AirFit F20 mask. Please keep in mind that when you purchase the mask, only the Standard size headgear is included. If you need a different size, you need to purchase the respective headgear size separately. The three available headgear sizes are as follows: the Standard included in the purchase kit, Small and Large sizes available separately.

Innovative cushion technology

Airfit F20 Cushion

InfinitySeal by ResMed is a special cushion technology that brings more comfort and stability thanks to its variable thickness

. The cushion is capable of adapting to the unique and varied facial features of the patient. You can rest assured that by purchasing the F20 full face mask you will get a customized fit and maximum comfortable wear thanks to this innovative technology cushioning system.

  • InfinitySeal cushion provides maximum comfort and fit regardless of the pressure used. Highly adaptable even with the most restless sleepers. The mask stays fit, and there are no leaks present
  • No more discomfort at the nasal bridge area. The ultra-soft and adaptive nasal bridge helps offering the best comfort. No more red marks and nose bridge irritation.
  • Thanks to the highly adaptive winged structure, the AirFit F20 curves nicely following the unique facial features of the patient. Therefore, AirFit F20 helps accommodating the widest range of facial types and anatomical structures
  • AirFit F20 cushion with frosted silicone technology- this type of cushioning allows for a much more comfortable seal at the nasal bridge area
  • Supportive rim technology for maximized seal & contoured chin design for increased compliance and comfort during wear

Best features of the AirFit F20 full face mask by ResMed

The first and most important feature is visual freedom. The mask allows patients to see everything in front of them, thanks to the low sitting frame. This ensures minimal facial contact, no more red marks and irritations and maximum stability at the same time. The headgear is not a rigid part of the mask anymore, but a flexible and soft component that adds to the stability and comfort during therapy. The headgear is also fitted with plush straps which further add to the comfort feeling during CPAP therapy.

The ResMed AirFit F20 cushion is an innovative and highly comfortable part of the mask. Covering both the nose and the mouth, the cushion ensures stability and comfort during therapy. Thanks to the magnetic clips, taking the mask off or putting it on is done in a matter of seconds. With fast fitting times, it is further ensured that patients become quicker compliant with necessary therapy. Also the quick release elbow means patients can take off the mask with a click during the night. Greater freedom of movement is further ensured by the 360 degrees rotating elbow.

It is important to mention that the ResMed AirFit F20 Full Face mask is compatible with any BiPAP/ CPAP machine. You can easily connect the mask to any type of tubing, and you do not need any adaptors.

Airfit F20 for HerAirFit F20 for Her

ResMed also offers the special AirFit F20 full face mask for Her. The mask is designed with all the comfort and stability features of the F20 line of masks. However, this mask features technology that suits the finer facial structures of a woman. InfinitySeal, adaptive wings, contoured chin region, soft nasal bridge, and polished silicone finish are only a few of the outstanding features of the F20 for Her mask.

This range of masks is dedicated specifically to women, in order to offer them a more personalized fit mask that is capable of adapting to the unique facial features of women.

The magnetic clips are a terrific addition. They’re especially good for women with long hair; the Velcro system on other masks will catch the hair and are a pain. However, there is a huge problem with this fancy new headgear system – you cannot simply replace a magnet if you lose one. And, they are very easy to lose since they just slide on to the strap and (surprise!) Velcro in place. One of the magnets slid off while I was traveling and I didn’t notice the magnet was gone until I set up my machine the next night at a new hotel. Without this magnet, it’s impossible to get a good fit in the mask.
ResMed will not sell a single magnet. Users must buy an entire new headgear, at a cost of $31, plus postage. That’s ridiculous for a $1 part. My suggestion: pick the proper location of the magnet on your headgear and sew it in place so it cannot slide off.

I had high hopes for the F20 facemask but its not working for me.
I’m a side sleeper and this model has a larger “snout” than the F10 which makes it easer and faster for me to get into a position where I’m pressing on the mask.
I’m going to stick with the F10.

Although I believe the ResMed AirFit F20 is the best full face mask on the market today each individual has a mask they like the best. I always tell customers the best CPAP mask in the world is the one you are comfortable with.

As I have said before I believe the ResMed AirFit F20 is the best full face CPAP mask on the market. It is very comfortable and allows for a clear line of vision while the mask is on. It is very light and comfortable.

Hope you did not buy the F20, there is an obvious design flaw in how the facemask attaches to the headgear. I find myself always looking for the mask since it falls in between the pillows if I take of the headgear.

Darren I think you may have a defective AirFit F20 as I believe this is the best full face CPAP mask ever to com to market. The headgear is very comfortable as is the mask cushion. I would suggest you check for defects and contact your supplier for help.

Comfortable mask but not durable. I have had five maskes in the last 2 months due to the cushion splitting. Stay away

Easy fix. You are wearing the mask to tight. This mask is meant to be loose on the face and when you turn the machine on it adheres to your skin.

I was given these F10 and F20 as good masks ! F20 both silicone seal and memory foam seal did notwork! There is always air leak and as tight as I could fit them leaving clear marks on the facial skin I find them uncomfortable and not good for those who sleep on the sides. I am disappointed with Resmed and their videos on mask seal is of little help.

Either you are wearing the mask to tight as they are not meant to be worn tight or you have been sized incorrectly. I wold bet it is both. You may have someone remeasure you to see if you could use a different size mask. I believe that ResMed makes the finest mask available and the F20 is an excellent mask. You may consider looking at the AirFit F30, ResMed’s newest mask.
