The ComfortGel Blue Nasal Mask by Philips Respironics is a traditional triangular nasal CPAP mask decked out with features intended to sculpt it to fit everyone regardless of facial size or facial shape. Philips Respironics designed the ComfortGel Blue mask to be a universal nasal CPAP mask. Philips Respironics created it to be a mask for everyone, including people who have not been able to wear nasal CPAP style masks without excessive air leaks or discomfort in the past.
The Philips Respironics Comfort Gel Blue Nasal Mask is an enhanced update to the original ComfortGel Nasal Mask.
- Squishy blue gel nasal mask has a dual-layer cushion that conforms to your face to create a good seal.
- Premium forehead pad prevents red marks and improves fit.
- A built-in stability selector tool allows you to find the perfect angle for the mask on your face.
- Ball and socket headgear makes it simple to take the mask off and on.
- A “silent” exhalation port quietly directs air up and away from you and your bed partner.
- The System One Resistance Control rating allows Philips Respironics CPAP machines to work particularly well with the ComfortGel Blue mask.
The ComfortGel Blue mask uses a dual-layer cushion design. A squishy blue gel cushion nests inside a thin, malleable silicone Comfort Flap cushion. The two cushions work together to establish a custom seal to your face. The interior gel cushion provides additional stability to keep the proper adjustment on your face. The interlocking cushions come apart easily to simplify cleaning.
Personalized fit at critical pressure points:
A built-in stability selector tool at the top of the mask allows you to fine-tune mask fit at critical pressure points. Without proper positioning, nasal masks tend to leak around the bridge of the nose, at the eyes, below the nose or near the lip. Over tightening the headgear to correct for leaks in these key areas results in discomfort, skin irritation, and can even create other leaks. By simply squeezing the arms of the stability selector, you can move the support arm down to seal leaks around the bridge of your nose or your eyes. To seal leaks below the nose or near the lip, move the stability support arm to a higher position, then simply squeeze the arms on the stability selector and slide up to move the bottom edge of the mask closer to your face.
The premium silicone forehead pad keeps the mask comfortably anchored and your skin irritation-free at that important pressure point. The forehead pad should sit lightly on your face.
Easy on and easy off:
Headgear is an important contributor to mask fit, comfort and overall ease of use. The headgear with the Comfort Gel Blue nasal mask simplifies getting the mask on and off due to a ball and socket design. The headgear clicks into place with Quick Clip technology that makes the need to thread the headgear through small holes on the sides of the masks a thing of the past. When removing headgear, just unhook one side and pull the headgear up and off your head. The next night just slip it back on and click back in place. Very little adjustments will be needed from night to night.
Four EZ Peel tabs on the headgear also simplify fine-tuning mask fit. The EZ Peel tabs are located at four key points on the top and bottom straps of the headgear to allow quick adjustments once the mask is in place.
Quality of life enhancements for you and those around you:
Angled exhalation micro ports located in the center of the mask direct exhaled air up and away instead of into your face or the face of anyone sleeping with you. The micro port design also quiets the system. Dual 360- degree swivel connectors keep the tubing moving seamlessly with you in your sleep.
Philips Respironics System One Resistance Control Ready:
The ComfortGel Blue Nasal mask will work well with any CPAP machine but is designed for optimal compatibility with Philips Respironics CPAP machines. Users enter the code stamped on the bottom of the mask into their Philips Respironics CPAP machine and the machine then knows precisely how to best adjust to the mask in use.
This mask was designed to be a nasal CPAP mask for almost anybody, but it may be a particularly worthwhile one to consider if:
- You want to wear a standard shaped triangular nasal CPAP mask but have not found one that fits just right.
- You want to avoid red marks, discomfort, and irritation.
- You want a mask that goes on and off with ease and requires little adjustment night after night.
- You breathe mostly through your nose at night.
