ResMed, a big name in continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for treatment of sleep apnea, has just unveiled new sleeping masks. The AirFit N20 is a nasal mask and the AirFit F20 is a full-face device. Both are new generation masks that were designed to improve the comfort and ease of use of CPAP therapy.
The masks use ResMed’s new “InfinitySeal” silicone to make contact with the face, which provides a comfortable feel while keeping an airtight seal. The material also helps to make the masks fit different shape faces by conforming to various curves and bends.
There are also magnetic clips on the full-face AirFit F20 mask that make it easy to put it on and take off.
“These new masks address two of the biggest catalysts for effective sleep apnea treatment: fit and comfort,” said ResMed CEO Mick Farrell in the announcement. “Patients rate mask comfort as the number one reason that can help them stay on therapy. Not only are the F20 and N20 our most comfortable masks ever, they’re easier and faster for clinicians to fit on patients the first time, helping more people suffering from sleep apnea adhere to this life-changing therapy.”
