The ComfortLite 2 is a unique interface which combines the freedom of a nasal pillow device with the comfort and seal of a nasal cushion.
Here are the highlights:
- Three cushion/pillow styles
- Flexible, adjustable headgear
- No pressure points on face
- Above the head hose connection
The ComfortLite 2 offers three styles of cushions: Pillows Cushion, Simple Cushion and Direct Seal Cushion. The Pillows Cushion is a nasal pillow design, the Simple Cushion is a smaller, shorter nasal cushion with a narrower edge that even works well with most mustaches. And the Direct Seal Cushion is a rounded design that seals against each nostril without being inserted inside.
The stability of the ComfortLite 2 comes from the headgear - not from the cushion pressing against the face as with most devices. The headgear is very flexible and adjustable without side straps against the face. And the adjustment assembly at the forehead provides stability for the cushions below and the hose attachment above. This means there are no pressure points against the face. And having the hose attach and swivel at the top of the head keeps it out of the way.
The improvements to the ComfortLite 2 include a softer, more flexible headgear with three different adjustments, better positioning of the hose connection at the top of the head to remove contact with the pillow and the option of the Pillows Cushion in addition to the original Direct Seal Cushion.
Respironics packages the ComfortLite 2 with two sizes of either the Direct Seal or the Pillows Cushion, and two sizes of the Simple Cushion. Most people with use the medium size; men will usually buy the medium/large combination and women the medium/small.
