Resmed mini help

Post by jzgbx2 » Wed Apr 13, 2022 1:59 pm

Hi everyone this is my first post. I've been using my CPAP for three years and it has been life changing. I used to wake up and was already thinking about when I could get a nap. Since getting subscribed CPAP there are no more naps. But the reason for my post is I just got a resmed mini. But I didn't get a hose or adapter or anything else. Just the machine and electric adapter. I use a F20 mask. What to I need to get ie. Hose adapter for hose to unit and adapter for hose to mask? What about the filter? I think I heard that a specific filter will aid in humidification. Any help y'all can give to point me in the right direction would be appreciated. :D

Welcome! It's good to hear you're doing so well on CPAP.

You're right that the Mini has various special requirements. You can see them all here:

Read the tips, specifications, and features (three different tabs on the page). I think that'll answer all your questions.

You just need an AirMini hose, an Airfit F20 & F30 Connector Elbow for AirMini to use your existing F20 mask with the AirMini. If you want humidification, the Airmini HumidX F20 HME Humidifier Filters for Airfit & Airtouch F20 Masks snap into the F20 mask. Just note that they are a bit pricey and are only good for 30 days once opened out of the package. Another alternative is using a standard hose with a universal hose adaptor for Airmini Machines. If you go that route you can use a standard Cpap hose and will not need an adaptor to connect to your F20. In addition you can buy in-line (HME) Heat Moisture Exchange Humidifiers that are much cheaper than the HumidX.

After owning my AirMini for at least 3 years, I just discovered that there's a filter that needs to be changed frequently. Needless to say, my filter was filthy! Read those instructions!!
