The mask’s “tube-up” connection, also featured on ResMed’s AirFit N30i
nasal mask released in January, keeps tubing out of the wearer’s way so
they can move and sleep in any position.
AirFit P30i fits 90 percent of wearers with just two frame sizes and
three cushions, helping home medical equipment (HME) providers fit
patients easier and faster.
“The AirFit P30i provides great freedom of movement for patients who
want an unobtrusive nasal pillows mask,” said Jim Hollingshead,
president of ResMed’s Sleep business. “This unique pillows tube-up frame
is a great addition to our growing mask family, and it’s easy for sleep
labs and HMEs to stock and fit.”
