Ladies!  October is turning out to be a great month for you.  First, ResMed introduced the S9 AutoSet, now they are releasing a Quattro FX for Her.   It's just for her! New styling and color features promote CPAP acceptance and adherence.

The Quattro FX for Her represents a new design element for ResMed masks. With no forehead support to obstruct her views, ladies can read in bed or watch television to fall asleep.

The high-tech Spring Air cushion distributes pressure evenly and absorbs even the slightest user movements, so users can enjoy a good night’s sleep confident that her seal is secure.
