ResMed's paediatric non-invasive ventilation (NIV) solution is designed with the comfort and compliance of young patients in mind, giving their caregivers and families peace of mind
Pixi™ mask: Just for children
Pixi is not merely a scaled-down adult sized mask that is used for children. It is designed especially for them, taking into account the bone structure, facial characteristics and skin sensitivity of children, aged 2 years and over.
Every feature of the Pixi mask is carefully considered to address and improve therapy comfort, acceptance and overall experience for both the child and their caregiver - from the single-wall, thin silicone cushion and special headgear with three points of adjustment to the spring-flex lightweight tubing, optional port and quick-release latch.

ResMed Power Station II (RPS II)
Having the option of an external battery gives children extra mobility and freedom during therapy, especially if they are in a wheelchair. The RPS II can be used with Stellar and Astral devices when the main power sources are not available, and as backup power in case of power outages.
Astral devices also have a dedicated external battery solution offering, providing even more flexibility.
Addressing the compliance barriers associated with treatment
To make a child's therapy journey as smooth as possible, ResMed's paediatric NIV solution is not just about product, but also about overcoming the psychological barriers to therapy. Along with the Pixi mask, ResMed has developed the fun loving Pixi character, who is featured throughout the whole paediatric journey.
In addition to the functional user guide, we've also created a parent guide especially for caregivers. Using tips and techniques from clinical specialists, the reassuring parent guide helps empower parents who are new to therapy and support them on their child's journey.
