The OptiLife nasal pillows system is an exciting new interface from Respironics that may be an excellent solution to CPAP users who need a nasal pillows system that does not interfere with their line of site. This interface can be worn with eyeglasses, which allows the opportunity to read or watch TV before falling asleep. This mask was designed for easy fitting, easy assembly, and easy cleaning, and it also incorporates some innovative design features for superior comfort.
The OptiLife uses a soft, pillows cushion that gently seals inside the nostrils. Unlike most pillows or prongs-style products that rely on the nose to support the seal, the OptiLife employs a chin support band that provides a soft foundation for the seal and further eliminates unnecessary nasal irritation, pressure or pulling. The cushion seal is supported by the chin support band, and, to a lesser extent, the nose. By using the chin to support the mask seal, the OptiLife reduces the pressure on the upper lip and nasal area, providing a comfortable yet stable cushion support.
Respironics' recommends the use of their lightweight Performance Breathing Tube to make this product more comfortable and effective. The Performance Breathing Tube further enhances the effectiveness of the OptiLife by decreasing the pulling forces caused by the weight and limited flexibility of standard breathing tubes.
