Clinical Launch of Innovative Cloth Sleep Apnea Mask Creates Buzz at Sleep Conference
Date:6/30/2008

PITTSBURGH, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Circadiance launched the revolutionary SleepWeaver(TM) Nasal CPAP Mask at the tradeshow of the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, SLEEP 2008, which was held in Baltimore June 9 - 12.

Many sleep apnea patients discontinue their CPAP therapy because their CPAP mask causes discomfort, irritation and sleep interruption. The innovative SleepWeaver is the only 100 percent cloth CPAP mask on the market today. It gently inflates and softly conforms to the patient's face to create a seal, and because the cloth is flexible and follows the exact shape of each individual patient's face, air leakage is reduced. It is also designed to reduce mask noise to provide a good nights sleep. And unlike other masks, SleepWeaver has no plastic or silicone parts that touch the face, preventing it from irritating sensitive skin.

"There are several advantages of this method over conventional CPAP masks," explains David Groll, President of Circadiance. "The air pressure causes the soft, breathable cloth to balloon and conform easily to the patient's facial anatomy, creating the seal. There is no need for excess tension in the straps and no localized pressure points that can create pressure sores."

More than 5,000 scientists and doctors were in attendance at the conference. The SleepWeaver received an overwhelmingly favorable response from doctors, therapists and others in the sleep products industry.

Dr. Natalio Chediak MD, of the Boca Raton Sleep Center, who was introduced to the mask at this conference, commented, "This is the most unique interface at this meeting. I have never seen anything quite like it before. I can see its place in my practice. This is very impressive."

Another perspective came from sleep technician Joshua Whitaker, RPSGT of the Lake Point Sleep Lab in Rockwall TX: "This is awesome. The fact that the air pressure makes a cloth balloon is really awesome."

Luis DelaCruz, RPSGT of the Adirondack Regional Sleep Disorders Center, commented, "I can really see a place for this in my practice particularly in those patients with sensitive skin and allergic conditions."

SleepWeaver is available in the United States and can be purchased directly at http://www.circadiance.com or through most home care companies.
