The MicroFit Dial has a total of 24 tightness settings which contribute to achieving the most optimal and comfortable position for each user of the mask.
Improved Diffusion Vent
It is a known fact that apnea therapy patients usually face problems regarding the noise which comes out from their therapy sessions. Furthermore, their bed partners usually face the consequences and difficulties in the process too. ResMed has dedicated special time and effort to eliminate this problem. For this reason, they have designed an improved diffusion vent which uses advanced technologies in order to provide a noise-free environment for both the patient and everyone in the environment.
More specifically, there are strategically placed exhalation holes through the ResMed Mirage Micro Nasal Mask. Their main function is to reduce the noises produced in the process to a substantial degree. The exhalation holes also push the air away from the patient and their bed partner. This way they can both enjoy their night of sleep, without being disturbed or distracted by outgoing air.
Easy to clean and maintain
Due to its convenient design, the ResMed Mirage Micro mask is one of the simplest ones when it comes to disassembling and assembling. This nasal mask features the quick headgear removal clips which allow the patient to detach the headgear in a simple step, simultaneously preserving the patient’s fit.
When it comes to the cleaning of the nasal mask, each component needs to be cleaned and hand washed separately. Furthermore, the mask doesn’t allow the use of strong detergents or strong smelled ingredients because these can affect the quality of the mask. It is highly recommended to use only a gentle soap or a baby shampoo and warm water.
The drying for the mask must not include direct sunlight because the mask is also sensitive to this part. The best timing for cleaning the mask is in the morning, after each use. This way each patient can remove the oils which are left behind from the skin. If you constantly delay the cleaning of the mask, the oils can seriously harm the lifespan of the mask.
Available in different sizes (Version for Kids included)
The ResMed Mirage Micro is available in 3 sizes. There is a fitting template from ResMed which assists patients in their decision to choose among different sizes. The fitting template needs to be cut out and placed around the nose of the patient (using a mirror in the process). The important fact is that the user needs to obtain a close fit around the nose, yet allow some clearance around the nostrils and the nasal bridge.
