The SNAPP 2.0 Nasal Prong CPAP mask is designed to be a comfortable direct nasal interface for continuous or bi-level positive airway pressure therapy. The SNAPP 2.0 delivers positive airway pressure therapy to the patient via soft nasal prongs.
The nasal prongs are conical in shape and fit comfortably into the nostrils. The soft prongs make two points of contact with the nostrils, the top of the prong forming a seal against the interior of the nostrils and the prong pillow body forming a seal with the exterior of the nostril. The cushion body also forms a seal when the headgear is in place and properly adjusted.
The nasal prongs rest above the bellows cushion, which features a two-tube design. The two tubes are on independent swivel elbows that can each independently rotate to provide freedom of movement.
A standard CPAP hose from the CPAP machine can either be placed above the head or down over the chest depending on the patient’s preference. This design enables patients with different sleeping preferences to find their optimal sleeping positions without feeling entangled in the mask apparatus.
As the system has no hard plastic components, patients will not have to worry about being disturbed by hard or bulky objects coming in contact with the face. Thoughtfully designed, this mask considers small details that affect the patient’s comfort. After all, the goal of CPAP therapy is to get restful sleep, and feeling comfortable is vital to achieving this goal.
The mask system is held in place with the included butterfly headgear. The simple design of the headgear is comprised of two straps that fit over the crown and at the back of the head. The headgear attaches to the mask on butterfly flanges and can easily be removed with one hand.
Patients who are receiving CPAP therapy are often concerned about the noise of the CPAP system as well as the possibility of disturbing their bed partners with the exhaled air. The exhalation port is located below the bellows cushion and directs air quietly in a downward direction, away from bed partners. Patients can feel assured that their sleep therapy does not disturb their bed partner.
The Snapp 2.0 Nasal Prong Mask is a great solution for patients who are looking for an alternative to bulkier nasal masks.
