NIV mask options designed specifically for pediatrics

Pixi™ mask

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 older. 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.

Ventilation accessories for pediatric patients

ResMed’s external battery gives children extra mobility and freedom during NIV therapy, especially if they are in a wheelchair. The Astral ventilators offer a long battery life: the combination of internal (8 hours) and external batteries (2 batteries can be coupled for a total of 16 hours) can provide up to 24 hours run-time. ResMed’s RPS II can be used with Stellar and S9 VPAP ST-A devices when mains power is not available, and as backup power in case of power outages.
