The AirFit F40 provides necessary pressure support in a comfortable, lower-profile full-face mask

SAN DIEGO—ResMed, a provider of digital health and cloud-connected medical devices that transform care for people with sleep apnea and other chronic respiratory diseases, announced the U.S. launch of the AirFit F40, an ultra-compact, full-face mask offering the comfort of smaller masks without sacrificing performance to help improve sleep apnea therapy compliance.

The AirFit F40 provides necessary pressure support in a comfortable, lower-profile full-face mask. The mask is ideal for people who sleep on their side, are claustrophobic and want the stability and seal of a universal fit mask in a minimalist design. In a ResMed clinical study, the company said 88% of patients rated AirFit F40's mask cushion as soft and comfortable and 100% found AirFit F40 easy to use.

"Most users prefer smaller and more streamlined masks, but traditional under-the-nose full-face masks can be challenging to fit properly, maintain a seal and handle higher pressures,"  said Justin Leong, ResMed chief product officer. "Our new AirFit F40 addresses this problem by offering the best of both worlds: an ultra-compact full-face mask with the high seal performance of an over-the-nose mask—bridging the gap between compactness and effectiveness in full-face masks."

A key feature of the AirFit F40 is the AdaptiSeal cushion, a 100% soft silicone cushion designed to maintain a facial seal, even when moving around during sleep. Additional features include:

  • A fully flexible frame that keeps the assembly away from patients’ eyes and ears.
  • A full-face mask with a quick-release short tube, reducing tube drag and offering a convenient way to detach and reattach the mask to the device during the night.
  • Headgear without top strap adjustment, which makes for an easier setup and adjustment process.
  • A new textile material and a dark grey color, offering a more modern look.
  • AirFit F40 is the latest in ResMed’s family of innovative CPAP masks, connected devices, and digital health technologies for helping millions with sleep apnea, COPD, and other chronic diseases sleep, breathe and live better.

AirFit F40 masks are available in the U.S., with plans to launch in Canada, followed by EMEA, Latin America and APAC. For more information, visit
