ResMed is releasing a new nasal cradle CPAP mask that features a front-facing tube that points downward. The AirFit N30 mask is the first of its kind, as similar masks typically have the air tube connect on top of the head, which makes them uncomfortable for many patients.
The AirFit N30 is also ResMed’s lightest CPAP mask, and the company has been trying to minimize weight across its product portfolio.
The device is adjustable thanks to elastic headgear and a novel nasal cradle cushion, positioned below the nasal bridge, helps to reduce irritation. The cushion works to maintain the air seal even as the patient turns in bed and assumes different sleeping positions.
“AirFit N30 is about ease of use, helping people ease into therapy and addressing the most common pain points for longtime users,” said Jim Hollingshead, president of ResMed’s Sleep business. “As the first mask of its kind, AirFit N30 reflects ResMed’s continued leadership in sleep innovation – the cornerstone of our company for over 30 years.”
The mask is now available for purchase in the United States and ResMed is planning on making it available in many more countries shortly.
