ResMed has just come out with a new line of mask which are very exciting. The newest mask in this line? The ResMed P30i! Having the tube at the top of the head is just one of their latest features in design and comfort.
With the P30i design, Cpap users can easily turn around in bed without having the tube running along their neck or around their arms. Philips Respironics has a similar design which has been around for a while but is also a great choice. While these products are similar, there are some subtle differences that we will go over.
The ResMed P30i has a similar frame to the Philips DreamWear Pillow Gel mask with a few differences. The frame has a springfit, accordion frame at the top which allows for a personalized fit yet provides nice stability while The DreamWear Pillow mask has a smooth frame. The swivel at the top of the DreamWear easily turns while the P30i swivel is a bit firmer but still works nicely.
Both masks provide mask wraps for the frame to reduce marks on your face and provide a bit of comfort. Philips DreamWear wraps are removable for easy cleaning while ResMed has the wraps permanently attached to the frame and can’t be removed. The removable cushions on both masks are easily replaced and both have a venting area on the cushion and at the swivel. The ResMed P30i has an added feature on the cushion with a built-in diffuser allowing a quieter sleep for you and your partner.
The DreamWear cushion is made from Gel providing an effective and comfortable seal with minimal contact to prevent red marks while the ResMed P30i is made of a soft silicone and easily fits in the nostrils. The headgear on the P30i seems a bit stiffer on the ResMed Pillows mask then the DreamWear but also does a great job of holding the mask in place.
We think both of the masks are a real winner due to the top of the head hose connection and the similar pricing. At the end of the day, we believe our customers will be pleased with either mask. For any questions you may have be sure to email us at [email protected]
