Event Description
Resmed cpap mask airfit n20 only has one size head gear to fit around users ranging from small medium and large. The head gear only has 1 1/4 inch slack in the adjustment as i need a large; the head gear was impossible to adjust to where it fit me. Neither resmed maker (b)(6) nor (b)(6) medical supplies (b)(6) can resolve this problem without me buying a different head gear from them. As i explained to them it's like buying a large shoe and being sent a small shoe. I am at risk of serious injury from not using my cpap machine at night as i stop breathing for long periods. It is really bad when you buy a large product and they send you a small size. Their product information gives three different sizes and product numbers for the head gear and yet they admit they only send out one size and say it's not their problem. Please take this seriously as i am retired on a fixed income and spending more money on an f20 that i am told may fit is not an ideal solution when it is their problem. You should issue a recall of their airlift n20 mask from resmed as it is not fit for proper use.
