ResMed AirFit P30i - NEW mask review
ResMed's newest Nasal Pillows CPAP Mask, the AirFit P30i, has raised the bar for CPAP mask comfort and seal. We've tested it out ourselves and spoken with our customers, and the overall consensus is that the AirFit P30i is one heck of a CPAP mask!
The most important component of any CPAP mask is the Fit. By that we mean, does it seal well? Does it stay securely in place while you move around on your pillow at night?
The AirFit P30i utilizes a patented SpringFit frame that adjusts to the contours of your head and hair, making for a more snug and personalized fit. The dual-wall pillows (similar to the popular AirFit P10) are strong and supportive while still being comfortable. And the top-of-head connection allows for freedom of movement and less bulk in front of the face. And lastly, the P30i comes in a fitpack, meaning you'll get 3 cushions (Small, Medium, Large) from which to choose from, ensuring you'll always have the best fit.
One drawback is that some users have complained of their hair being caught in the SpringFit frame. While this only comes up with about 1 in 20 users, it is something to consider if your particularly sensitive at the top of your head.
FIT GRADE: A
Noise, or more accurately lack of noise, is pretty important for a CPAP Mask, given you're trying to sleep while you wear it! The P30i has been measured as 80% quieter than the competing mask in its category. The AirFit P30i also features new QuietAir vent technology, a mask feature designed to break up exhaled air for a quieter and gentler flow.
NOISE GRADE: A+
EASE OF USE
AirFit P30i is designed to slide quickly on and off. In fact, twice as many CPAP users find that AirFit P30i is easier to use than the market-leading mask! The mask features a quick-release elbow which allows you to easily disconnect from therapy without the mask parts getting stuck or lost.
Cleaning is slightly more difficult with the AirFit P30i, due to the hollow frame. Warm water with mild soap should be rinsed through the frame to ensure bacteria does not build up.
EASE OF USE GRADE: B+
Overall, the AirFit P30i is an excellent option for nasal pillows CPAP mask users who want a quiet and comfortable mask. We at CPAP Machines Canada are big fans of this mask.
