Mask comfort redefined

ResMed AirTouch N20 is our first nasal mask to use patented ResMed UltraSoft™ memory foam cushion technology that adapts to each patient’s face for a personalised fit. Like our full face option, it’s designed to provide a light and breathable seal for unprecedented comfort and reduced skin irritation.

Interchangeable with AirFit™ N20 cushions

This mask features a modular frame design that fits both the ResMed AirFit N20 InfinitySeal™ silicone cushion and AirTouch N20 UltraSoft™ memory foam cushion. This means you can conveniently switch between the two during fittings and send customers home with both to see which one they prefer.

No cleaning with regular replacement

AirTouch N20 is our only nasal mask that doesn’t require wet cleaning as its memory foam cushion is designed to be replaced regularly. Studies confirm that AirTouch mask cushions are hygienic to use for one month without cleaning.1-3

Sizing the mask cushion

  1. Familiarise yourself with the cushion-sizing template provided and the cushion sizes available.
  2. Hold the sizing template under the patient’s nose, and use it to help determine the most suitable cushion size. For this mask, you are only looking to assess the width of the patient’s nose.
  3. Select the matching cushion and try it on your patient for comfort and fit.

Fitting

  1. Take the mask elbow/short-tube out of the frame by squeezing the quick-release buttons and pulling the elbow out.
  2. Ensure the magnetic clips are not connected to the frame. Twist and pull them away from the frame if they are.
  3. Place the cushion under your patient’s nose, and pull the headgear and frame over their head.
  4. Bring the lower headgear straps under your patient’s ears, and attach the magnetic clips to the frame on both sides.
  5. Unfasten the upper headgear straps, and pull them evenly until the mask is secure and comfortable.
  6. Unfasten the lower headgear straps, and pull them evenly until the mask is secure and comfortable.
  7. Pick up the elbow/short-tube and connect it to the air tubing from the CPAP machine.
  8. Reattach the elbow/short-tube with the air tubing to the frame. 

Managing mask leak

  1. If you feel air escaping the mask cushion from any area other than the vent, you should try the following steps to locate and stop the leak.
  2. If air is escaping from different areas of the cushion, try pulling it away from your face and letting it reseal itself.
  3. Run your finger over the top half of the cushion to check for upper cushion mask leak.
  4. Adjust the upper headgear straps as needed to achieve a secure seal.
  5. Run your finger under the bottom half of the cushion to check for lower cushion mask leak.
  6. Adjust the lower headgear straps as needed to achieve a secure seal.
