The EasyLife Nasal Mask by Philips Respironics feature Auto Seal technology that provides the superior comfort and efficiency sought by patients for their CPAP therapy.
The Auto Seal system comprises two cushions: the soft inner cushion and the outer cushion. The soft inner cushion creates a flexible and self-adjusting seal that forms around the nose. The inner seal cushion adjusts with patient’s movements, maintaining a consistent seal even for sleepers move a lot during the night.
The outer cushion provides stability and support. It allows the mask to easily fit over the face and minimizes the need for tightening the mask to secure the seal. The forehead pad is integrated with the outer seal and self adjusts to the face.
Important to any mask interface is comfort and the ability to form and maintain a stable seal. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) prevents patients from sleeping restfully through the night. People suffering from OSA are disturbed from restful sleep because of breathing interruptions caused by relaxed airway muscles that collapse and close off the upper airway.
The application of a continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP, keeps the airway from collapsing and allows for normal breathing, which in turn ensures better sleep for the patient.
CPAP therapy requires the mask interface to maintain a good seal for the duration of sleep. As the ultimate desired outcome is uninterrupted sleep for the patient, mask comfort is also an important factor. The EasyLife mask fulfills both requirements.
This well-designed mask only comprises four components: the mask frame, headgear, the outer support cushion, and the inner seal cushion. The simplicity of the design makes the mask very easy to use.
The included headgear is equipped with adjustable straps that converge to a single back panel. The back panel features a crown strap for another level of stability. For the best fit, place the mask over your head and adjust both the top and bottom headgear straps so that little force from the mask is applied against the face. The upper headgear straps should fit above the ears and the lower straps below the ears.
The back panel crown strap can be adjusted to comfortably position the headgear. Upon turning on the CPAP machine, the inner seal cushion should automatically form a seal over the nose. When leakage occurs, simply reset the inner seal cushion by pulling it away from the face and allowing it to set back into place. Using this mask is just that easy.
