Even though there’s a wide range of users who are more than satisfied with the ResMed’s Ultra Mirage Nasal Mask, there are many of them who wish to try out the upgraded version from it - ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask.
This new, advanced model has combined the features from various ResMed masks, in order to provide the best possible comfort. Yet, apart from being comfortable and adjustable, there are quite some other features which make this mask as popular as it is.
Dual-Layer cushion (optimized seal and comfort)
The main function of the two-layered cushion is to provide the optimal seal for each patient, simultaneously minimize the pressure on the nose and in the nasal area. The cushion is made of soft clear silicon. More specifically, the inner layer of the ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask cushion has a supportive function and provides stability. The purpose of the outer layer is to reduce leaks and pressure sores.
For this reason, the outer layer is in form of a soft membrane. The inflation of this membrane is initiated by the flowing air which pushes and positions the membrane against the patient’s face. Due to these circumstances and functioning, there is no need for headgear or any components which form tightness to the patient’s face.
Unique air vent
Apart from the two-layer cushion, the ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask features a specifically designed air vent which provides reduced noise. Apart from this benefit, the air vent allows optimum CO2 washout. The function of the air vent is to provide a peaceful night of sleep, both for the patient and their bed partner.
Unlike many traditional masks of this type, the ResMed masks provide unique air ventilation and spread out of the air through multiple little holes positioned on the mask. What’s more, the ResMed masks redirect the air away from the patient and their partner in order to allow a peaceful night without any disruption.
360º elbow rotation
In addition to the adjustability and flexibility of the ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask, the tubing position is a breeze with the 360° elbow. This way, each patient is able to achieve the most suitable position, no matter what their needs, wants and preferences are.
Countless patients consider the headgear of a mask as the most important feature. When it comes to the headgear of the advanced version of Ultra Mirage, this mask uses the latest one in the headgear technology. This headgear is beneficial due to the fact that it draws moisture away from the face skin and simultaneously allows air circulation through the material of the mask.
Breath-O-Prene Headgear is polyurethane foam with an outer layer of nylon and spandex. No adhesives are included in the design of the headgear. The components are simply heat-laminated together. Even though the Breath-O-Prene Headgear provides great comfort, ResMed doesn’t recommend it for someone who moves too much through the night. There are more specialized masks for those kinds of patients.
The Breath-O-Prene Headgear is available in 3 sizes:
Adjustable forehead support
The forehead support is designed in order to provide one hand adjustments in any position. More exactly, there is a choice of 4 available positions. Together with the forehead, there are one-piece forehead pads which adjust to the contours and structure of the patient’s face. Furthermore, the forehead pads stay in place through different actions and activities.
Quick release features
The ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask comes with a Quick Release Swivel and a Quick Release Headgear.
The quick release clips of the headgear allow the patient to remove the headgear easily and simultaneously eliminate the need to constantly adjust the device. The Quick Release Swivel provides a simple and fast detachment of the tubing from the mask. This feature is extremely useful through the night when the patient wants to disconnect from the tubing for a short period of time (ex. going to the toilet) and connect to the CPAP tubing once again.
Disassembling and cleaning the mask
The disassembling of the mask includes separating the component of the ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask: the main air tubing, headgear, headgear clips, swivel, forehead pads, cushion clip, cushion, and ports cap.
The next step is to remove the vent from the elbow. The procedure follows with removing the forehead support from the mask frame. Last but not least, the patient needs to remove the clip and mask elbow from the frame of the nasal mask.
The process of disassembling is extremely needed when it comes to cleaning the ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask. More specifically, the mask needs to be cleaned on a daily basis, after each use of the device (usually in the morning).
Even though the headgear may be washed without being disassembled from the mask, the components must be hand washed in warm water, using only light ingredients such as pure soap. Once the user rinses all the components, he/she needs to leave them to dry out of direct sunlight. On a weekly basis, each user needs to repeat this procedure, including the headgear.
The cleaning process of the mask must not include strong detergents such as bleach, chlorine, alcohol, aromatics, moisturizers, antibacterial agents, or scented oils. These kinds of products may seriously harm some of the components or reduce the lifespan of the mask.
All in all, the ResMed Ultra Mirage II Nasal Mask can fit the needs of various users. Yet, it is all a matter of tastes and preferences. We recommend you to carefully compare and choose among the wide span of face masks for apnea therapy.
Choosing the right type of mask depends on your personal needs and preferences.
