Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corporation Limited announced today that F&P Vitera™, its new mask for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), is now available for sale in the United States.
F&P Vitera is a full-face mask that redefines mask performance through a combination of unique technologies to provide high levels of stability and durability. It offers dynamic support through the RollFit™ XT Seal, which is designed to minimise leaks and pressure on the bridge of the nose. A stability bar keeps the mask in place throughout the night.
“On full-face masks, leaks are the number one complaint from patients,” said Justin Callahan, president of the Fisher & Paykel Healthcare US business. “Vitera is designed to remain stable on the face and maintain a comfortable and effective seal, so patients can sleep in their preferred position and wake up refreshed and energised.”
The mask also incorporates VentiCool™ breathable technology in the headgear. This proprietary fabric helps to dissipate heat and moisture, providing a comfortable patient experience. Together with other new design features such as headgear clips, grip tabs and VisiBlue™ highlights, Vitera is an exciting addition to the popular F&P range of OSA masks.
F&P Vitera is already available in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Europe and will be available in other regions upon receiving the relevant regulatory clearances. Details can be found on our US website, www.fphcare.com/vitera or by contacting your local Fisher & Paykel Healthcare sales representative.
