Brevida Nasal Pillow Mask with Headgear
The F&P Brevida Nasal Pillow Mask is as easy and as simple as it looks. A lightweight nasal pillow CPAP mask built for comfort with a unique inflatable AirPillow design that allows for a remarkable seal not only inside the nostril but around the nose. This feature inflates the cushion creating a pillow of air and allowing your CPAP therapy to flow comfortably.
In the process of inhalation, the soft walls of the cushion inflate. This provides stability. Much like most nasal pillow masks the Brevida includes all sized nasal cushions. Offered in extra small-small and medium-large cushions. Moreover, this mask uses VisiBlue- the blue ring around the mask- to guide the user to the point of connection.
AirPillow Cushion Seal
Unlike nasal masks, which tend to cup the nose, nasal pillows tend to fit underneath it and funnel air into your nose. The F&P Brevida changed this model by inflating it's AirPillow cushion. The AirPillow seal inflates then allowing a gentle cloud of air to fill into your nasal passage.
The AirPillow is designed to inflate in and around the nose to create a one of a kind seals. This cushion is triangular in shape which extends from the tip of the nose to the upper lip. This unique shape and design are built to provide a seal in and around the nose. Other nasal pillow masks seal is up to the nostrils only.
This one of a kind AirPillow was mask designed with comfortability in mind.
All Size Cushions Included
Most CPAP masks on the market require you to use their sizing guide. That said, sizing guides can be confusing to the average CPAP user. Fisher and Paykel goes against the grain by reducing confusion made by complicated sizing guides! Instead the Brevida makes it very simple to get on with your regular sleep apnea therapy.
To accommodate most facial structures the Brevida mask includes two sized AirPillows. One cushion is sized to fit extra small-small and the other is sized to fit medium-large. This will surely help reduce stress that occurs when trying to find the correct mask size.

The diffuser which was designed to reduce noise is now washable. This filter diffuses unnecessary sounds as it is released from the mask and captures fine particles. Now it is not only easy to maintain and is cost effective due to the newly designed washable filter. It is recommended to clean once a week to be able to provide maintenance to the item making it continuously functional.

We all have unique facial structures and RespShop stocks a large variety of masks for CPAP so that everyone can find something that works best for them.

Many nasal pillow masks have narrow frames and thin headgear straps, adding up to less surface area that needs to lay flat. For a nasal pillow mask designed around particularly slim headgear, Fisher & Paykel’s Brevida is a great option.
When shopping for a CPAP mask to wear with facial hair, don’t fall into the trap of sizing up. Use size guide and select the size that fits your facial structure. Over sizing results in leaks, frustration, and discomfort.
