ResMed, Poway, Calif, introduces the Ultra Mirage full-face mask designed to stop mouth leak. Like all Mirage® products, the full-face mask features dual-wall cushions to reduce pressure on the nasal bridge. This unit also features a forehead support with four position options to minimize mask movement. It offers quick-release headgear clips, and once the headgear is set up, it does not need to be readjusted each time the mask is used. A safety valve in the mask elbow allows patients to breathe fresh air when the flow generator does not provide airflow. The Ultra Mirage offers minimal dead space and features built-in air vents to reduce CO2 rebreathing, even at low pressures. Multi-patient and multi-use, the full-face mask allows for chemical and thermal disinfection for up to 15 cycles of cleaning. (800) 424-0737.
