Design Award for Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask

One of the newest CPAP masks on the market is also one of the easiest to use and most comfortable. The Fisher & Paykel Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP mask comes from a manufacturer with a solid reputation for introducing the highest-quality products for sleep apnea patients. This time, Fisher & Paykel may have hit a new high point.

The Fisher & Paykel Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask: Supreme Comfort in an Award-winning Design

One of the most challenging aspects of therapy is finding a mask that’s both comfortable and is effective. The F & P Brevida nasal pillow is all of that and more. Here are just some of the reasons:

  • Soft, inflatable nasal pillows with side supports means less chance of slippage during sleep
  • Enhanced stability with a specialized clip locks the pillow into place
  • The comfortable, adjustable, easy-to-wear headgear is flexible and has minimal contact points on the user’s face
  • Includes both XS/S and M/L pillows for user preference
  • The bottom of the tubing swivels conveniently and fits all CPAP and BiPAP machines
  • Innovative VisiBlue which makes disassembly and reassembly simple

Another great feature of the Fisher & Paykel Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP mask is a diffuser filter that’s washable, extremely quiet, and keeps air from disturbing the person in bed next to the user. The idea behind the Brevida is that the wearer gets the full therapeutic effect without involving disrupting anybody else.

Brevida Nasal Pillow Mask is a Winner of an Important Product Design Award

In February of 2017, the Fisher & Paykel Brevida received the iF International Forum Design GmbH’s prestigious Product Design award. The honor has been bestowed on superior design innovations across multiple categories since 1953.

“Our goal for Brevida was to create a truly user friendly experience when it comes to assembling, fitting and using the mask,” Jason Huang, senior product development manager for the Brevida, said in a company press release about the award.
“This is a global acknowledgment from independent experts on the quality of our product design,” Huang said. “Our design process is all about doing what’s best for the patient, so it’s great to have that recognized with this award.”
The Brevida was among more than 5,500 products from nearly 60 countries assessed for the award, the judging of which took into consideration elements such as usability/ergonomics and aesthetic/design quality. It was the third time a Fisher & Paykel product has been honored by the design organization, the first two being for its F&P Pilairo mask and Optiflow Junior nasal cannula.

A Few More Things to Know About the Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask

The Brevida’s air pillow seal is unique in that it fits somewhat looser than other nasal pillows. This means there's less pressure on the nostrils when air inflates the pillow. Multiple tests have shown that the Brevida’s seal is both easy on the nares of the nose and incredibly effective.  The headgear is available to fit various sizes. It loops through the clips to attach to the frame of the mask and is easy to adjust.

Finally, the Fisher & Paykel Brevida Nasal Pillow CPAP mask comes with two air pillow sizes: extra small/small, and medium/large. The package (shipped free through The CPAP Shop) includes the mask frame, air pillows in both sizes, headgear and clips, mask tube, and two mask diffusers.
