New but a little familiar too

Is it just me that gets pretty hype whenever there is a new product launch in the CPAP world? I don’t use a CPAP, although depending on whom you ask they might tell you I should, but I can’t help but get excited for y’all CPAP users when something new comes out for y’all to try. I’m pretty much like a kid in a candy store for a lack of a better metaphor. That being said, you can imagine my excitement when I learned that ResMed was launching a new mask.

The N30i is the newest mask introduced to the ResMed line. The design is quite similar to Respironics’ Dreamwear mask. The frame is made of soft silicone material and is designed to cover less of your face; it sits right above the cheek bones, similar to a nasal cradle or cannula, to hold the cushions that will sit under the nose. It also allows for easy airflow throughout the night no matter what position the patient is sleeping in. There is a top-of-the-head tube design, again, similar to that of the Dreamwear mask, which allows ease of use for the patient through the night.

The top-of-the-head tube design allows you to sleep closer to your significant other without anything really getting in the way. At least, that’s what the website says. The website also mentions the mask is within the same sound rage as other nasal masks, but users have reported little to no noise at all. Another great feature, although this is nothing new to ResMed products, is the quick-release elbow connection via the tubing; it makes getting up in the middle of the night easier as patient will not have to not take of the entire mask, rather they just have to disconnect their tubing.

As of now, patients who have tried to mask seem to really like it. The cushion comes in four different sizes: small, medium, small wide and wide, and the frame comes in a small and a standard sizing. Thus far, the N30i seems to be very promising. If I were using a CPAP of some type, this is definitely something I would want to try ASAP!
