SAN DIEGO, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ResMed (NYSE: RMD) continues its 25-year history of innovating powerful and comfortable solutions for treating sleep-disordered breathing with today's introduction of the ultra-light, ultra-quiet ResMed AirFit™ P10 nasal pillows system.
The AirFit P10 weighs just 1.6 ounces, and has only three parts, including a new soft and stable QuickFit™ headgear. ResMed has pioneered a new mesh vent called QuietAir™ so the AirFit P10 is 50 percent quieter than its predecessor, diffusing air with minimal disturbance to patients or their bed partners. ResMed's AirFit P10 maintains a secure seal while delivering a high level of facial freedom.
"The AirFit P10's light weight and ultra-quiet performance also translates directly into better compliance," said Jon Yerbury, vice president of ResMed's Sleep-Disordered Breathing Strategic Business Unit. "Our internal research has shown that the AirFit P10 provides an average of 40 more minutes of sleep per night than ResMed's current market-leading nasal pillows mask."
For the convenience of ResMed's home medical equipment provider customers as well as patients, the AirFit P10 has color-coded cushion sizing, with small, medium and large sizes in the standard AirFit P10 system, and extra-small, small and medium sizes in the AirFit For Her system, which features headgear designed for women.
ResMed's AirFit P10 begins shipping in the U.S. today.
