Houston, TX, February 09, 2010 --(PR.com
of Houston, Texas, a leading distributor in the sleep therapy and oxygen equipment and supplies, announces the arrival of the Sleep Comfort Care Pad for a better mask experience.
SeQual Technologies has released the Sleep Comfort Care Pad intended for patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) who experience pain and discomfort on or around the bridge of their nose associated with using nasal or full face masks. The pad acts as a cushion between the patient’s face and mask, and is simply placed across the bridge of the nose under the mask. The protective polymer gel pad is composed of USP grade mineral oil, is hypoallergenic, latex and silicone free. It is reusable, does not require any adhesives and can be cleaned with soap and water. The material and design have been thoroughly tested and proven to provide the patient with a comfortable leak free seal.
A patient can experience pain and discomfort on the around the bridge of their nose or other parts of their face associated with using nasal or full face masks. This can be due to over tightening the headgear straps or using a mask that doesn’t have a good overall fit on the patient. Every patient has different facial structures as well as skin textures. Finding the right mask is like buying a comfortable fitting pair of shoes. It takes patience and advice from your doctor and a clinician to evaluate the options you have related to the many different masks available on the market. The Sleep Comfort Care Pad is used much like a shoe insert or foam insole. The shoes you own may fit pretty good but they feel more comfortable when you put a nice pair of inserts inside of them. The same theory applies to our product line in that it acts as cushion between the patients face and their mask. The protective polymer gel pad is hypoallergenic, latex and silicone fee and with proper care can be used multiple times. The product was designed to be placed as shown in the instructions across the bridge of the nose. Each person’s face is different so take your time and place the pad on your face so that it covers the affected areas where you are experiencing discomfort or leaks then place the mask over the pad and tighten the straps on the mask. Don’t over tighten the straps but insure that they are applying enough pressure to provide a seal with no air leaking around the pad or mask.
The Sleep Comfort Care Pad is a polymer gel material which provides ultimate skin protection. Simply apply the pad to your face and place your mask over the pad. The pad does not require any adhesives to make it stay on your face and this is benefit over products on the market which need tapes or glue to make them stay in place. When you awake after a refreshing night’s sleep remove your mask and the pad and wash it with soap and water and place in the protective container provided with the product to keep lint and dust from collecting on it.
