The full face Philips Respironics Comfort Gel Blue combines ComfortGel Full Face Technology with ComfortGel Blue technology to create a more comfortable and functional facial mask.
Cushion Technology "Blue" Gel
The updated gel "Blue" used by Comfort Gel Blue is softer and more compliant in the face to provide a better grip. In addition, the Comfort Flap uses the SST (Sure Seal Technology), which provides a single type of seal around the entire bearing blue gel. Bearing Gel Blue and Flap SST can be replaced to prolong the life of the mask.
The micropores expiration of ComfortGel Blue Full Face reduce noise during use. The angle of the holes directs air away from the user CPAP and partners. With a swivel connection at 360 degrees, the bend elbow allows movement during sleep and the tube can be placed over the head or down over the chest.
Faceplate and pad Angle Adjustment
The proven Premium Front Pad comfort is used with the ComfortGel Blue to improve the fit of the mask. The Stability switch located between the support front pad and the mask fits easily allowing users to get the best fit.
System One Resistance Control Number
Philips Respironics has developed the System One Resistance Control to provide the pressure for the most suitable according to the mask therapy. Each mask is numbered to indicate the resistance of the same. If you are using a machine with the PR System One, such as the PR System One 60 Series Auto and heated hose, the value is entered at the time of the setting and the output pressure is adjusted according to the mask.
What is the difference between a silicone cushion and a gel cushion?
The two main differences that distinguish a silicone cushion by a gel counts in weight and in the comfort given to the patient.
Silicone has the advantage of being extremely light and can be molded into a rather thin cushion. Unfortunately it is necessary to carefully choose the size of the mask, since the material does not ensure a 100% fit around the face.
The gel, in contrast, provides a comfort and adherence to the face that the silicone is not able to reach, resulting in much more soft and adaptable. Obviously, the cushion can be much heavier than its counterpart, more often and cumbersome, and not always the patient tolerates these defects.
Essentially, the advantages and disadvantages of these two materials must be assessed solely on the basis of patient preference.
