SAN DIEGO, April 11, 2019 – ResMed (NYSE: RMD, ASX: RMD) today introduced its second top-of-head-connected CPAP mask for treating sleep apnea, a new nasal pillows option, AirFit P30i.
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.”
How AirFit P30i compares
In a clinical study comparing AirFit P30i to the other tube-up nasal pillows mask:
- CPAP users preferred AirFit P30i nearly 2 to 1.
- More than 70 percent whose preference was based on mask seal preferred AirFit P30i.
- Twice as many reported AirFit P30i is easier to use and more comfortable.
AirFit P30i is available today across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. It will be available throughout the United States and Canada on Monday, April 15, and other countries later this year.
The mask joins ResMed’s portfolio of 30-plus CPAP masks, including its popular “tube-down” nasal pillows mask, AirFit P10, winner of the international Red Dot product design award.
“We believe that every patient is different, and we are committed to providing the best possible experience to everyone who needs CPAP therapy,” said Hollingshead. “That’s why ResMed offers a wide range of AirFit masks, and we’ll keep innovating to expand the portfolio.”
