Philips Respironics DreamWear Gel Pillows Mask
The DreamWear Gel Pillows mask from Philips Respironics gives patients an exciting new option for their sleep therapy. Similar to the original Philips DreamWear nasal mask, the DreamWear Gel Pillows utilize the DreamWear’s signature frame design – a hollow silicone construction that routes airflow up to the hose connection port located at the crown of the head. This innovative DreamWear frame assembly is mated to a new gel nasal pillows cushion, which delivers a secure yet comfortable seal. The end result is a nasal pillow mask that most patients prefer to their previous CPAP mask.
DreamWear Gel Pillows Mask Features:
- Gel nasal pillow cushion rests comfortably at base of nostril with minimal invasiveness
- Innovative silicone frame provides structural support and routes airflow up to hose connection
- Open field of vision allows patients to read or watch TV without distraction
- Unconventional hose connection point location enables greater freedom of movement
- Three cushion sizes included in Fit Pack, with additional frame sizes available to order
- Quick-release hose allows patients to easily disconnect without removing entire mask assembly
- Flexible headgear with easy-to-use pull-tab adjusters delivers stable, comfy fit
Freedom, Flexibility and Comfort
The DreamWear series of masks provide CPAP patients with a wide freedom of movement thanks to its unique design layout. The DreamWear’s distinctive silicone frame wraps behind the cheeks up to the top of the head, anchored into place by the comfy fabric headgear strap. But what makes the DreamWear frame truly unique is its hollow silicone construction, which serves the dual purpose of structural support as well as an integrated pathway for the airflow delivery from the hose connection point.
This unconventional location of the hose connection makes a world of difference for the DreamWear patient’s CPAP experience. The cumbersome tubing that so often distracts the patient’s field of vision or constricts movement during sleep is repositioned out of sight completely. In fact, the DreamWear’s unencumbered view is one of its most cherished traits. The open field of vision allows patients to easily watch TV or read as they wind down for bed. The novel placement of the hose connection at the top of the head also better accommodates changes of sleeping position and the frequent movements of restless sleepers. So whether you sleep on your side, back or belly (or all three, and then some during the night!) the DreamWear Gel Pillows system helps keep your CPAP therapy running smooth.
Gel Pillows for Comfort and Security
The distinguishing characteristic of the DreamWear Gel Pillows mask is its namesake nasal pillows cushion. Unlike some nasal pillows, which contact inside the nostrils, the DreamWear’s blue gel pillows gently seal at the base of the nostril exterior with only the soft silicone tips resting inside the nostrils. It’s a less invasive feel than more conventional nasal pillows and a big reason why the DreamWear Gel Pillow is preferred by patients.
The DreamWear Gel Pillows Fit Pack includes all three available nasal pillow cushion sizes (Small, Medium, Large), with a convenient sizing guide included to help patients find the perfect fit. Replacement DreamWear Gel Pillows Cushions are also available for sale individually. Owners of the original DreamWear nasal mask can also swap out their existing nasal cushion for the Gel Pillow option if they want to give it a try, as the DreamWear frame and headgear are interchangeable between mask designs.
DreamWear customers should also know that a replacement DreamWear frame is offered in three sizes, with Small and Large options available along with the standard Medium frame included in the Fit Pack. Between the three cushion and frame sizes, almost every DreamWear user should be able to find a pleasingly comfortable fit.
Easy-to-Use Nasal Pillows System
The intuitive DreamWear Gel Pillows design makes life easy for the patient. Assembly is fast and easy, and so is the process for taking the mask on and off. Simply pull the flexible DreamWear headgear over the head and adjust tension with the flanking pull tabs. The quick-release hose connection allows patients to easily disengage from the CPAP without removing the entire mask assembly. This convenient feature comes in quite handy during those pesky tasks that require leaving the bed momentarily, like, say, answering the call of nature in the middle of the night.
Patient-Preferred Nasal Pillows Option
Philips Respironics backs its claims of comfort and performance for the DreamWear Gel Pillows mask with its own research data. Philips patient studies compared the DreamWear Gel Pillows against rival nasal pillows designs like the ResMed AirFit P10 and Swift FX, as well as Philips Respironics’ own Nuance and Nuance Pro. Patients reported the DreamWear Gel Pillows mask caused “less discomfort on the face, nose and nostrils” than its rivals. They also claimed more satisfaction with sleep quality using the DreamWear Gel Pillows, as well as experience better mask seal and stability.
