The Wisp Paediatric Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear – Fit Pack from Respironics is a child friendly take on the widely popular Wisp mask. The Wisp Paediatric Mask includes three cushions designed to fit the size and shape of a child’s face. The mask has a more playful appearance to help children ease into therapy. The mask is intended for children who weigh 10 kilograms or lower.
The Wisp Paediatric Nasal CPAP Mask is designed to help children feel more comfortable with their therapy. The mask has a giraffe print headgear, frame, and tubing wrap to encourage a more inviting reaction.
Three Cushions Included
The Wisp Paediatric Mask includes three cushions: small child, medium child, and large child. The child sized cushions are shaped to better fit the size and shape of a child’s face as opposed to an adult.
Leak Correction Dial
The cushion features a leak correction dial at the bottom of the cushion to aid in mask fit. The dial can be adjusted by an adult while the mask is on the child for ease of use. The dial allows for adjustment of the cushion to help stop leakage that may occur.
Tube Management Loop
The tube cover features a tube management loop that can be used in conjunction with the crown strap to route the tube over the head. Routing the tube over the top of the head will help keep the mask stable if the child is an active sleeper or changes positions during therapy.
