Take Kiwi Engineering to Bed with F&P

A lot of CPAP patients know all about Respironics and ResMed when it comes to CPAP device manufacturers, but there is at least one more major manufacturer out there - Fisher & Paykel Healthcare (pronounced pie-kull). Fisher & Paykel entered the respiratory care market in 1971 with the development of a unique respiratory humidifier system for use in critical care. F&P now offers a broad range of products and systems for use in respiratory and acute care and the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)...

A Patient's Review of the ResMed Mirage FX

ResMed describes their new Mirage FX as a “…transformation in nasal mask comfort.” Today, I take a detailed look and see whether that’s a bunch of hyperbole. The number of components that make up the Mirage FX is noteworthy, as there are only four: headgear, frame, mask, and hose joint. Each of these has thoughtful features that I’ll discuss in turn, then examine the mask as a whole and how it performs...

ResMed's new one-size-fits-most Mirage FX CPAP mask is taking off in popularity. A quick scan of comments around the forums and chat sites on the Internet produce some interesting patient responses. Most responses to the mask are extremely favorable, while a few are from those who seem to dislike the whole process of CPAP therapy no matter which mask is in use.

A Patient's Review of the Puritan Bennett Breeze

This week I had the chance to meet Javier Sotomayor on our Facebook page. Javier posted a comment about the Puritan Bennett Breeze nasal interface. I found out that he was a long time user of the Breeze and that even after trying multiple other masks, he still loved it. We have a previous post on our blog about the Breeze and the loyalists who still sing the praises of a classic mask, Javier is one of those people. I asked Javier to write us a blog post about his experiences with the Breeze and he was happy to do so. The following is his account...

He was skeptical and asked if we still had the "old" ComfortGel...

Mouth breather? Try the Oracle.

It surprises me that more people don't know more about the Fisher & Paykel Oracle CPAP mask. It's the world's only Oral CPAP mask. Having trouble with your mouth falling open during therapy? Hate that chin strap? This is the perfect solution for you. You can even use this mask without the headgear. Just imagine, no more nose irritation, no more red marks from tight headgear. Evidence has also shown that this mask is less likely to be pulled off (or rather out) during the night...
