The new Wisp Nasal Mask by Philips Respironics is the latest device aimed to help sleep apnea suffers get a comfortable and restorative night’s rest without loud machines and obstructive masks.
The Wisp nasal mask combines comfort and performance in a minimally invasive design. It is the first device of its kind that can be customized to fit a wide range of users, more than 98%! Many of the features were designed with the patient in mind. The unique headgear design is sleek enough to allow users to wear glasses while using the Wisp. Mask comfort and flexibility are important factors in achieving successful sleep therapy.
The customizable features of the Wisp nasal mask include:
- Fabric or silicone choice – The ability to choose between a fabric or a clear silicon frame. They are lightweight and interchangeable. Headgear adjusts easily with a few clips.
- 3 cushion sizes – There are three sizes included with the Wisp to help get the most comfortable fit and strongest seal.
- Clear view design – Because the headgear and frame ask as the support, there is no need for forehead support, offering an unobstructed view.
- Flexible tube – The tubes on the Wisp are connected with a swivel elbow to allow movement without breaking the seal. The tubes easily disconnect for cleaning.
People with mild to moderate sleep apnea may be able to wear a nasal mask with their CPAP therapy instead of a full face mask. Nasal masks cover the nose only, while the full face mask covers the mouth and nose which is better for severe cases of sleep apnea.
Talk to your doctor and see if the versatile Wisp nasal mask is the right CPAP therapy machine for you.
