To provide a more custom fit, the TrueBlue includes a flexible spring connecting the mask frame to the cushion. This spring both reduces pressure on the bridge of the nose and compensates for movement while sleeping.
Premium Gel Cushion and Inflatable Silicone Flap
By molding to the shape of your nose, the gel cushion provides a comfortable, self-adjusting seal. Designed to fit loosely on the face, it is not necessary to over tighten the headgear straps to create a seal. Simply adjust the straps and position the mask so it rests comfortably on your face. The TrueBlue fits loosely to allow the outer cushion silicone flap to inflate and create a seal around your nose.
The best way to achieve a seal is to put the mask on, connect it to your CPAP hose, and turn on your CPAP machine. While your machine is blowing, pull the mask away from your nose to allow the outer cushion flap to inflate. Bring the mask slowly back to its original position. For more information, please see Philips Respironics' mask guide for more information.
Easy Click Cushion Re-assembly
There are three quick contact points that the spring and gel cushion can easily be clicked into place with.
Soft, Adjustable Forehead Pad
With three soft gel cushions, the forehead pad increases comfort by distributing pressure across a larger area. The flexible pad is made to conform to your forehead by swiveling up and down.
Talon Headgear Clips
The sturdy headgear clips easily unhook, removing the need to unfasten headgear straps to remove the mask. They are made from a softer plastic and can withstand more tension. Each clip snaps into place with one click and can be twisted to detach.
With a crown strap and four adjustable straps that converge into a single back panel, the headgear is designed to provide constant stability. Philips Respironics offers the headgear for the TrueBlue in two sizes: Standard and Reduced Size. All size TrueBlue masks come packaged with size Standard headgear. The Reduced Size Headgear may be purchased separately: Headgear for TrueBlue Gel Nasal CPAP Mask.
System One Resistance Control
Please take note of the Resistance Control rating located on your mask's cushion if you are using the TrueBlue with the System One line of CPAP machines. By programming this rating into a System One machine, the pressure will output will adjust relative to the mask in use, thereby delivering more consistence and reliability in terms of pressure.
