ResMed AirFit F30 CPAP Full Face Mask Review

With all of the CPAP full face masks available, it’s important to do your research before making a purchase. The ResMed AirFit F30 Full Face Mask is a customer favorite. Here’s why.

What is the ResMed AirFit F30 CPAP Full Face Mask?

The ResMed AirFit F30 is a redesigned full face mask that rests lower and covers less of your face. This innovation reduces red marks on the face and nose bridge that typically occur from bulkier full face masks. The under-the-nose design of the cushion helps maintain a comfortable seal throughout the night, which prevents leaks.

Key Features of the ResMed AirFit F30 CPAP Full Face Mask

  • The QuietAir™ elbow minimizes airflow noise providing a more peaceful sleep for your bed partner
  • The versatile headgear easily fits most users with minimal adjustment
  • An UltraCompact cushion offers additional support and comfort while sleeping
  • A quick release elbow feature lets you slip out of your mask quickly and easily
  • The streamlined design allows for a clear field of vision for reading or watching TV in bed

Benefits of Using the AirFit F30 CPAP Full Face Mask

The Resmed AirFit F30 provides extra comfort while you sleep while also maintaining a low-noise environment for your sleeping partner. Because full face masks have a tendency to leave red marks, the AirFit F30 was designed for minimal face coverage. Less contact means fewer red marks. And the under-the-eye framing and headgear make it easier to watch TV while wearing the mask.

The mask is intended for single patient re-use in the home and multi-patient re-use in the hospital/institutional environment.

Storage & Disposal

Is the ResMed AirFit F30 CPAP Mask Comfortable?

The ResMed AirFit F30 is designed for optimal sleeping comfort with two remarkable design innovations:

Cushion Comfort

The UltraCompact cushion is specially designed to keep you comfortable when you sleep on your side.

Headgear Comfort

The headgear design offers a first time fit, contouring to even unique face shapes.

Maintenance & Disassembling 

  1. To disassemble, disconnect the device air tubing from the mask elbow.
  2. 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.
  3. Squeeze the side buttons on the elbow and detach from the frame. Hold the top and bottom of the cushion and separate from the frame.

Clean the headgear weekly and the elbow, frame and cushion after every use.

  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.

What are Customers Saying About AirFit F30? 

I tried the ResMed F30 after using the F20 for a couple of years. The bridge of my nose has developed a sore that wouldn’t heal and the marks on my face were drawing attention at work. The F30 has provided a month of pain free sleeping and no more fighter pilot look! The cpapshop was wonderful to deal with and I know where to go for all my supplies in the future.” – Review by Stenhammer, 9/30/19

“I'm somewhat new to cpap regimen, 4 months or so and it has helped me tremendously. For my money I don't think you could have another full-face mask perform as well and be move comfortable and less intrusive then the F30 by ResMed. I don't ever want to be without it, so I ordered another one to have on hand, just in case!” – Review by Tom, 9/23/19

“I've tried several different full face masks over the years and never was completely satisfied with any of them until I tried the F30. No more stripes on my face from the straps and red marks around my nose like the previous mask left. Can wear my glasses with the mask on which I couldn't do before. Very comfortable and I'm a side sleeper and this mask stays leak free when on my side. Would highly recommend this mask to anyone who needs a full face mask. Very quiet so the wife loves it to. No wind tunnel sound.” – Reviewed by Don H, 5/20/19
