ResMed mask categories: a quick guide to finding your ideal mask


Choosing the right mask is crucial to CPAP therapy success. Our mask categories can help you to understand the key benefits of each mask in our range, so you can pick one that suits you best.
Every ResMed mask is designed to deliver effective therapy and a comfortable night’s sleep, but each mask category offers something a little different – take a look.

Minimalist category - Small. Light. Simple.

If you appreciate less mask on the face, the choice is simple. Our minimalist category features masks that are small, lightweight and discreet. They are ideal if you want something that won’t affect your ability to see in bed, like when you are reading or watching TV.

Freedom category - Sleep and move comfortably.

Masks in our freedom category feature a top-of-head connection, keeping the air tubing out of sight and out of the way. These masks enable you to comfortably move around at night and sleep in many positions, be it on your back, side or stomach.

Ultra Soft category - Patented memory foam offers unique comfort.

Mask discomfort is the top reason CPAP users stop therapy.1 Our Ultra Soft category is designed to change that. These masks feature our patented memory foam cushion, which is softer than silicone and may lessen the potential for red marks and irritation.

Universal fit category - Classic designs that fit nearly every face.

Why are ResMed AirFit™ F20 and AirFit N20 our most popular full face and nasal masks? Because you can depend on them to seal well under variable pressures. With a fit range of 96% for AirFit™ F20 and 99% for AirFit N202-5, you can choose one of these masks with confidence.

If you’re unsure what you’re looking for. Book an online consult or visit us in-store and use these mask categories as a conversation starter with one of our sleep coaches. They will be in the best position to help you find the most suitable ResMed mask for your needs.
