The simple design of cushions allows a minimal contact with skin. The need for a forehead support is replaced by the design frame and headgear.
The Wisp Nasal CPAP Mask by Philips Respironics was developed to offer comfort and ease of use while fitting a wide range of users. The first to offer options in headgear materials, the Wisp steps up to a new level of individual choice. Never losing site of the fact that mask comfort promotes successful therapy, the design of the Wisp is lightweight with minimal facial contact.
- Frame Choice - Fabric or Clear Silicone
- Multiple Size Cushions Included
- Minimal Contact Design
- Clear Line of Sight
- Easy to Fit and Seal
- Lightweight, Flexible Short Tube
- Hose Position Options
The unique frame of the Wisp is offered in two formats - Clear Silicone or Fabric. The molded silicone is lightweight and flexible with smooth surfaces. For a different feel, select the fabric covered frame. Extending yet another choice, each side of the fabric frame has different material for different feels. The modular frames are interchangeable and reversible.
Cushion - Minimal Contact & Multiple Sizes
The Wisp cushion is small and lightweight with a minimum of silicone touching the face. Three sizes of cushions are included with the Wisp, sizes Petite; Small / Medium and Large. The mask comes packaged with the size Small/Medium cushion in place and can easily be changed with the Petite or Large cushion.
Minimal Design - Clear View
The headgear and frame design is the source of support and seal for the Wisp omitting the need for a forehead support. Having nothing on the forehead makes for a more comfortable therapy experience. People who enjoy watching TV or reading before going to sleep will appreciate the clear field of view.
Flexible Short Tube
The lightweight and flexible short tube included with the Wisp connects to the swivel elbow. It serves as the connection between the long hose and the cushion - allowing for movement without losing the seal. The tube can be disconnected from the elbow for cleaning. Offering choice of hose position, the short tube can be secured to the headgear using the crown loop keeping the hose up and out of the way.
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.
