The CPAP equipment provider – the store where you picked up your CPAP mask and machine – is responsible for providing you with ongoing clinical support, including answering any questions and helping you resolve any mask comfort or fitting issues that you may be experiencing. Getting used to a mask can be challenging and there may be a different mask option that will work better for your personal comfort needs, so don't hesitate to reach out!

You should clean your mask daily. Facial oil and dirt can easily build up on your mask parts when they’re not cleaned properly, which can lead to skin irritation. The good news? Cleaning your mask doesn’t take long, so working it into your morning routine should be a breeze.

Use of ozone may discolor a ResMed mask during the ResMed limited warranty period and that will not be covered. Discoloration of ResMed masks is only covered during the limited warranty period if it occurs upon initial unpackaging.
It's important to take regular care of your CPAP equipment – especially the various parts of your mask, which can be affected by dirt, oil and residue from your skin. Poorly cleaned CPAP masks can cause discomfort and skin irritation. The last thing we all need is another to-do item, so contact your CPAP equipment store and ask if they have a replacement supply (resupply) program that you can enroll in to get new parts on a consistent schedule.
Most CPAP masks have silicone cushions because it's a hypoallergenic material that's soft, lightweight and allows for a stable, comfortable seal on your face while you're sleeping. It's important that you decide what's most comfortable for you and your therapy when it comes to your mask cushion. If you experience skin irritation or are uncomfortable with your current mask, contact your CPAP equipment store to let them know so you can try a different mask. ResMed AirTouch F20 is an alternative that is the same mask as AirFit F20, only the cushion is made of our patented UltraSoft™ memory foam instead of silicone.
AirFit F20 for Her is the same mask as an AirFit F20 except it has lavender accents rather than the standard blue, and comes in sizes Small and Medium. Regular AirFit F20 is available in Small, Medium and Large.
