Devilbiss has released a new nasal mask, the FlexAire with an innovative, unique feature. The FlexAire has a foam filled bladder cushion. The firmness of the cushion is adjustable by the user. Want it firm? Push the pump button on the side of the mask. Too firm? Bleed some pressure out by pushing a recessed vent. The mask has other nice features, including a Quick release that allows the user to detach the mask from the forehead pad without removing the headgear. This mask's many adjustments and user settings allow it to work on for a wide range of users. The mask is one size fits most with the average man's nose right in the middle of its capabilities.

Resmed is releasing a new Auto cpap, the AutoSet Respond. The machine has the "AutoSet Advantage" algorithm, with a reduced compliance and result measuring capability. Reducing these reporting capabilities also reduces the price of the system. The changes create a better value for those who do not wish to buy software and review detailed results. We will have more details on this machine next month.
The Medtrade Show is being held in Atlanta the first week of October. This show always produces new products and news and cpap.com will be there to get the stories. We do know that Fisher & Paykel is introducing a new nasal mask. Resmed will be releasing their new "Activa" nasal mask. The Activa is causing quite a stir in the industry with its active suspension technology. Will this be THE mask to use? We will find out. Resmed is also releasing the long anticipated VPAP III. All we know for sure today is that it is much smaller than VPAP II and very quiet. Our October newsletter will have the latest on these products and more.
