QuietAir reduces noise by 89 percent and produces a 70 percent gentler exhaled airflow, compared to ResMed’s previous design, allowing for a quiet, uninterrupted night of sleep and mitigating two barriers to therapy compliance: noise and bed partner comfort.

“With this technology, our full face masks’ noise levels are well below ambient noise in the bedroom,” said ResMed CEO Mick Farrell. “We are providing patients and their bed partners with the peace and quiet they deserve for better sleep.”

QuietAir is the latest innovation to ResMed’s line of AirFit and AirTouch products:

All three masks complement ResMed’s suite of cloud-connected PAP devices: Air10 bedside machines and AirMini, the world’s smallest PAP device. Remote and self-monitoring, enabled by cloud connectivity, is proven to help improve patients adherence and clinicians’ business efficiencies.

QuietAir diffuser vents for AirFit F20 and AirTouch F20 masks are now available in the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. For more information, contact your ResMed sales representative.
