Sizing The Quattro™ AIR Full Face Mask

  • When it comes to sizing the Quattro Air it is important to note that the sizing model is the same as the original Mirage Quattro Full Face Mask. However, don't think that all ResMed full face mask sizing gauges are the same. For example, if you are comparing the size of the Quattro FX Full Face Mask then you should know the sizing is a lot different. It is different for many reasons but mainly because the Quattro FX has no forhead support structure at all so it's really just a different design and way to size customers. If you are comparing the Quattro FX with the Quattro AIR you should consider going up in size. In other words, if you wore a small in the Quattro FX you would most likely wear a medium in the Quattro AIR.

    However, the best way is to download and print out the original Mirage Quattro Sizing Gaugeand whatever size you end up with the Original Quattro the Quattro AIR will be the same size. It will just feel a lot different and more comfortable because remember the Quattro AIR only weighs 3.3 ounces (90 grams)

Important Note: When fitting the Quattro AIR remember that the frame and cushion size can't be mixed up. In other words if you have a small frame, you can't mix it with a medium cushion.

Is a Full Face Mask Right for Me?

When it comes to using a full face mask most of you have probably been told by your doctor or bed partner that you are a "mouth breather"; or you are experiencing "jaw drop" during your CPAP use. This simply means that you can't keep your mouth shut. If this is you then you really only have a few options to receive adequate therapy. You could try a chin strap. CPAP Chin strap's fit just beneath your chin and around the top of your head to help keep your mouth closed. The other option is a full face CPAP mask. Full face masks have always been feared by many CPAP users because of how much bigger they are than a nasal or nasal pillow style mask. However, a full face mask for a mouth breather is always the best option to get the most of your CPAP experience.

There is good news for those of you who have to wear a full face mask. They have been getting better year after year in design and comfort-ability. The Quattro AIR is a great example of how far CPAP mask design has come in the full face arena. So if your on a nasal mask or nasal pillow CPAP mask right now and you know that your still snoring or your mouth is opening; don't be afraid of trying a full face mask. When your mouth is opening you are not getting adequate therapy. I would encourage you to check your therapy if you can.

Most CPAP machines today have some type of therapy compliance reporting or even on board details of your therapy. If you are able to check your therapy you will most likely see that your apnea hypopnea index or "AHI" is still well above 5 where it needs to be. A Full face CPAP mask like the Quattro AIR will help a lot and get you back on the right track. If you are looking for a light seal and comfort in your CPAP mask, the Quattro AIR is a great choice. It really is lighter than any other full face mask on the market.
