Naturs Design Inc, the maker of RemZzzs CPAP mask liners, recently exhibited a new liner style specifically for nasal pillows mask users. The company says that in nasal pillows masks, skin breakdown occurs at the point of mask insertion into the patient’s nostrils, an extremely sensitive area, and is a major reason that users abandon therapy.
“This is a first-of-kind product on the market,” says Robert Rutan, CEO of Naturs Design Inc, in a release. “This is the result of years of requests by both patients and sleep professionals. They’re looking for a way to prevent sores on the nares and leaking that causes them to adjust their mask all night.”
The product debuted at the SLEEP show in Minneapolis earlier this month.
