This package includes both the replacement cushion and silicon flap for the ComfortGel Full Face Mask by Philips Respironics. The combination of the silicon flap and the gel cushion provides users of the mask both comfort and a reliable seal.
A damaged or worn cushion or flap can cause difficulties in maintaining a good seal and compromise the effectiveness of your sleep therapy. Over extended regular use of your full-face mask, the cushion can become soft and become effective at maintaining the seal. If you find that your full-face mask is leaking more often, the problem may be the worn cushion. Replace the cushion and the flap of your mask as soon as necessary to get the most out of your sleep therapy and extend the life of your mask.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder wherein patients have difficulty breathing while sleeping. These breathing difficulties cause disruptions in sleep. Breathing difficulties arise when the muscles in the patient’s airway relax, causing it to collapse and thus obstructing breathing.
An effective therapy that can mitigate this condition is application of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) to the patient’s airway, which forces the airway to remain open and allows the patient to sleep through the night.
Efficient delivery of CPAP requires a leak-free seal from the ComfortGel mask, so always replace old and worn silicon flaps and cushions to get the best out of your therapy.
