Nuance Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask with Headgear

Nuance Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask with Headgear

The Nuance CPAP Mask delivers the first of its kind, a nasal CPAP mask with gel nasal cushions that provide unmatched comfort by conforming to the shape of your nose.

Each Nuance mask includes 3 different sizes of gel nasal cushions options small, medium, and large. By using the gel nasal pillows the Nuance mask is able to offer a new level of comfort and seal but the benefits don’t stop there.

For unmatched comfort during all times of treatment, the Nuance offers a soft cloth mask frame that delivers lightweight comfort. Thanks to its open style frame you will also be able to watch T.V., read a book, or talk to your spouse before bed with a clear and unobstructed view.

Not satisfied with your current nasal or full face CPAP mask? Then LPT Medical highly recommends that you give the innovative and comfort focused Respironics Nuance CPAP Mask with Gel Nasal Pillows a try.

Feel the Gel Nasal Pillow Difference

Upon putting the Nuance CPAP Mask with Gel Nasal Pillows on for the first time you will instantly feel the difference. The pillows are engineered to create a perfect seal at the opening of your nose in order to deliver effective therapy pressure.

Plus, the gel ring is extremely soft and flexible which allows it to easily conform to the shape of your nose to provide the best seal. You can also use these gel nasal pillows with the Nuance Pro.

Finding the Perfect Gel Nasal Pillow Fit:

  • Step 1: Find a Nasal Cushion Size that is Optimal for You (Small, Medium or Large) by Placing the Nasal Pillow Cushion Tips into Your Nostrils
  • Step 2: Choose a Cushion Size that that Allow the Gel Bases to Sit Comfortably Under Your Nose Without Any Gaps

Putting on the Nuance CPAP Mask:

  1. Headgear – Pull the Headgear Forward Over Your Head
  2. Nasal Pillows – Insert the Gel Nasal Pillow Cushions into Your Nostrils

Adjustable Open Style Headgear

Not only is your view not obstructed, but the open style design of the headgear minimizes facial contact, and voids the need for a forehead support; greatly reducing strap marks and redness.

Easily adjust the headgear to your desired preference using the adjustable crown strap on top of the headgear, doing so will improve the fit and seal of the mask.

Adjusting the Headgear and Frame:

  1. Headgear – Adjust the Crown Straps on the Top of the Headgear Until it Sits Just Above Your Ears
  2. Frame – Peel the Tabs Away from the Straps, Adjust the Lengths Evenly, and Simply Press the Tabs Against the Straps to Reattach

Once completed the mask should rest comfortably against your face, if you notice any pressure points try subtly readjusting to find an optimal fitting. The most common mistake, is overtightening.

Removing the Nuance Mask:

Grab the Headgear Back Strap and Pull the Headgear Forward Over Your Head. This will Allow Your Customized Adjustments to Stay Intact

Non-Medical Feel with a Clear View

Enjoy a clear and unobstructed view while reading, watching your favorite television show, or even talking to your loved one before bed with the open style headgear design of the Nuance CPAP Mask. Its modern design offers a non-medical look and feel to your sleep therapy treatment.    

Flexible Short Tube with 360° Swivel

To connect the Nuance to your main breathing tube there is a short delivery tube extended from the mask to provide a lightweight and flexible connection.

This tube was designed so the headgear can fit loose and comfortably around your face. The short tube boosts comfort by minimizing pull and drag on your face and mask.

The short tube is attached to a 360° Swivel Elbow that reduces torque, while providing you with greater freedom for positioning your tube.

Do you constantly find your breathing tube getting in the way? If so, use the built-in hose loop at the crown of the headgear to route the short tube up and over the top of your head. Keeping the hose out of your way while sleeping.

Micro Exhalation Ports

The 360° elbow connection is engineered with micro exhalation ports to soften your exhalation stream and to reduce overall sound. By angling the exhalation ports towards the short tube you and your loved ones will no longer be woken up with a blast of air to your face.

Using the headgear loop will aim all exhaled air upward or simply allowing the tube to hang down over your chest will direct the air towards your body.

Ideal for Traveling

Being comprised of just 4 parts, the Nuance CPAP Mask is exceptionally easy to clean and maintain. Plus with its flexible, compact and lightweight design, you can travel with the Nuance in your bag without the fear of breaking or damaging the mask.
