If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, then your doctor will most likely prescribe a CPAP machine and CPAP mask. While some changes in lifestyle and diet may improve your sleep apnea symptoms, the most effective treatment is still a CPAP machine. Wearing a CPAP mask can initially be uncomfortable, continuing the treatment is essential to adjust to wearing your mask. Wearing the mask during the daytime hours, when you are awake, is an easy way to get used to your new mask and machine. Finding a comfortable, correctly sized mask is also essential, as well as finding the right machine that will offer optimal air pressure when you need it.

Philips Respironics' ComfortGel Blue is an improvement over previous models of the ComfortGel series.The new mask reduces pressure points, minimizes noise and redirects exhalation air flow away from your bed partner, making the mask convenient both for you and your significant other. The soft, pliable blue gel in the mask adapts and contours to facial features, while the premium head gear is easy to use and provides a proper seal. The increased comfort of the ComfortGel Blue ensures patient compliance, which increases the effectiveness of CPAP treatment. Philips Respironics' ComfortGel Blue is latex free.

In addition to finding the right mask, determining the optimal CPAP machine can be overwhelming. The Philips Respironics PR System One device utilizes advanced intelligence to provide optimum care and patient management. As opposed to older machines that are set to a single constant air pressure, the PR System One device uses smart technology that delivers constantly changing air flow that is designed to fit your needs. With the PR System One working in with your mask through the use of simple settings, the technology instructs the machine to compensate for the resistance of your particular mask. By using advanced humidity control technology, the PR System One device can compensate for ever-changing environmental conditions. By analyzing ambient temperature, relative humidity and patient flow, the device delivers optimum humidity - and ultimate comfort - to the patient while also dramatically reducing rainout.

The Philips Respironics System One device also includes an advanced even detection system that allows patients to make more informed decisions by monitoring apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), large leak, flow limitation, and respiratory effort-related arousals (RERAs). This ensures that the patient is able to determine appropriate clinical management.The most important advancement, however, is the ability of the device to point out when a patient is experiencing symptoms beyond classic OSA. With a system that can immediately identify clear airway apneas and periodic breathing, the device can indicate the potential need for specialized therapy.

Finding the correct mask and machine can increase your lifestyle, comfort and overall quality of life.With the Philips Respironics ComfortGel Blue mask and System One device, patients are guaranteed comfort and results.
