The beauty of all of the innovations (except AirMini – only compatible with P10, N20 and F20), is that any CPAP mask can be used with any CPAP machine. The ResMed S9 was the machine that was “new” when I started dealing with CPAP. The Full Face mask at the time was the Mirage Quattro which was super effective but also quite cumbersome and came in many parts.
ResMed then released the ResMed Quattro FX, which didn’t have anything come in front of the eyes and then followed this up with the ResMed Quattro Air and ResMed AirFit F10.
Recently the ResMed F20 was released and has been very popular, particularly the ResMed AirFit F20 For Her. When looking at the ResMed AirFit F20 vs F10 you will notice that the F20 is actually bigger. The ResMed AirFit F20 cushion, while bigger in size, is much softer and more durable than the ResMed AIrFit F10 cushion. Also when comparing the AirFit 20 vs the AirFit F10 the other noticeable difference is the use of magnets to take the mask on and off. This makes life a lot easier. We recently had a testimonial about the ResMed AirFit F20 which reviews this particular feature. This particular patient mentioned that it was noticeably easier to put the mask on and take the mask off.
Again, we stress that the ResMed F20 is compatible with the ResMed S9 series CPAP machines. What you may find when you are upgrading your CPAP mask, is that a connection may be left over from a previous mask.
