New face mask for the sleep apnoea patients

ResMed, the U.S.-based medical device company, has come up with a new device for comforting the sleep apnoea-affected individuals. The device called “AirTouch F20” full mask is basically designed for patients undergoing the continuous positive airway pressure therapy for the treatment of sleep apnoea.

The face mask has an UltraSoft memory foam mask cushion made especially looking at the patients’ comfort in the mind. The mask cushion is so comfortable and adaptable in nature that it can face contour any patients face that too without causing any skin irritation and facial markings in the long run. The cushions are made permeable making it possible for the breathable air as well as heat and sweat to flow through it without affecting the pressure therapy. The cushions are made in such a way that it is compatible with any continuous positive airway pressure therapy. In short, it is almost similar to that of the AirFit F20, which has InfinitySeal silicone cushions.

Looking at the functionality of the AirTouch F20, it is anticipated to set the bars high for the continuous positive airway pressure therapy. The task of putting on the mask full time during the night when sleeping is the major reason for the rising demand among the people for a more comfortable and efficient therapy.

According to ResMed chief executive officer, Mick Farrell, the new mask is going to take the healthcare diagnostic market to a next level. Currently, the face mask is only available at the medical stores in the U.S. and Canada.
