ResMed has introduced the QuietAir diffuser vent elbow for its latest continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) full face masks: AirFit F20 with silicone cushion and AirTouch F20 with memory foam cushion.
According to the company, QuietAir reduces noise by 89% and produces a 70% gentler exhaled airflow, compared to ResMed’s previous design, allowing for a quiet, uninterrupted night of sleep and mitigating two barriers to therapy compliance: noise and bed partner comfort.
“With this technology, our full face masks’ noise levels are well below ambient noise in the bedroom,” said ResMed CEO Mick Farrell. “We are providing patients and their bed partners with the peace and quiet they deserve for better sleep.”
QuietAir is the latest innovation to ResMed’s line of AirFit and AirTouch products:
- AirTouch F20 with UltraSoft memory foam launched in May 2017, creating a personalized fit with a uniquely soft and breathable seal, and fitting 98 percent of patients.
- AirFit F20 and AirFit N20 nasal masks launched in November 2016 to enhance facial comfort and fit, fitting 97 and 99 percent of patients, respectively, regardless of facial structure, gender or age.
All three masks complement ResMed’s suite of cloud-connected PAP devices: Air10 bedside machines and AirMini, the world’s smallest PAP device. Remote and self-monitoring, enabled by cloud connectivity, is proven to help improve patients adherence and clinicians’ business efficiencies.
QuietAir diffuser vents for AirFit F20 and AirTouch F20 masks are now available in the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. For more information, contact your ResMed sales representative.
The older elbow is more comfortable for me. Too much air pressure against my face with the quietAir. Feels like exhale air is blocked
