AirFit F30 outperforms leading mask of its kind in fit, seal, ease of
use

ResMed (NYSE:RMD) (ASX: RMD) today introduced its first minimal-contact
full face CPAP mask, AirFit F30, the latest addition to its AirFit mask
portfolio, which helps users reduce facial marks, wear glasses in bed
and curl up closer to their bed partner.

Unlike most traditional full face mask cushions, AirFit F30's sits
below the nasal bridge, preventing top-of-the-nose red marks and
irritation, and reducing feelings of claustrophobia for some full face
wearers.

AirFit F30 also features ResMed's latest QuietAir
vent, so it's quieter than ambient noise in the bedroom. Plus, magnetic
clips make the mask fast and easy to put on and take off, while a
one-size-fits-all headgear ensures an accurate, first-time fit.

ResMed AirFit F30 vs. the competition

Compared to the leading minimal-contact tube-down full face mask:

  • 80% of users said AirFit F30 was easier to use.1
  • 66% of users said AirFit F30 had a more stable fit and better seal.2
  • AirFit F30 is quieter, based on published performance (21 vs. 32.5
    dBA).3

HME benefits: Fewer SKUs, faster fit

With just two cushion sizes and one headgear, AirFit F30 fit 93 percent
of users in a ResMed study.2 Fast and accurate first-time
fittings with fewer stock keeping units (SKUs) can help home medical
equipment (HME) providers achieve higher patient satisfaction,
successful patient setups and simpler inventory management.

"AirFit F30 is a win-win for sleep apnea patients and HMEs, and the
perfect addition to ResMed's portfolio of CPAP masks," said Jim
Hollingshead, president of ResMed's Sleep business. "It provides an
easier, quieter and more stable fit for full face wearers, while HMEs
can enjoy faster setups and easier inventory management with a mask
designed to fit the first time, every time."

Availability

AirFit F30 will be available later this year in select countries. It
will be on display this weekend at the European Respiratory Society
Congress in Paris at ResMed's Booth J.04.
