Fisher & Paykel Releases New Full Face Mask

The F&P Vitera positive airway pressure interface for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is now available for sale in the United States.

Released by Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corp Ltd, the mask features several technologies for the first time in a Fisher & Paykel full face mask.

  • RollFit XT: RollFit was on the company’s previous generation of masks, but the new RollFit XT technology brings 93% more roll and comes with a variable thickness silicone seal. When combined with the new enhanced stability bar system, XT provides dynamic support: stability and sealing irrespective of patients facial geometry and movement while sleeping. Also new is a quick release forehead clip and other usability features to enhance overall ease-of-use.
  • VentiCool: This breathable technology means that a proprietary fabric helps to dissipate heat and moisture, providing a comfortable patient experience.
  • VisiBlue:  Visual cues facilitate simpler, quicker, and more intuitive patient education and to aid the patient in fitting, disassembly, and reassembly.

“On full-face masks, leaks are the number one complaint from patients,” says Justin Callahan, president of the Fisher & Paykel Healthcare US business, in a release. “Vitera is designed to remain stable on the face and maintain a comfortable and effective seal, so patients can sleep in their preferred position and wake up refreshed and energized.”

F&P Vitera was previously available in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Europe and will be available in other regions upon receiving the relevant regulatory clearances.
