Is the Respironics Wisp Pediatric Nasal Mask Too Loose Or Too Tight?

Make sure the headgear straps aren't too tight or too loose. The mask will leak if it is too loose, and the child will not receive appropriate treatment.

If the straps are too tight, the skin can turn red and become irritated. If the child is in the hospital, respiratory therapists or nurses can rotate various masks on the child's face on a regular basis to check the skin underneath to prevent irritation.

To secure the mask in place, the straps should never be over-tightened.
