Designed to rest comfortably on the face, Philips Respironics AF541 noninvasive ventilation (NIV) mask features interchangeable under-the-nose and over-the-nose cushions to achieve the benefits of NIV mask rotation while using a single NIV mask.
By regularly rotating between over-the-nose and under-the-nose cushions, you can offload and redistribute pressure, which reduces the potential for skin breakdown. By replacing just the cushion, instead of the entire mask, you can improve workflow while reducing costs.
Aids efficient workflow
Adapts to different ventilators
The AF541 oro-nasal mask can be used in multiple settings, so there’s no need to replace the mask as your patients move between acute and sub-acute environments. Plus, the mask supports nebulizer treatments and bronchoscopy procedures, to help you continue NIV therapy without disruption.
Adjusts for patient comfort
Adjustable to meet patient needs
With the AF541 mask, you can tailor the fit and comfort to even your most challenging patients. The mask features a push-button forehead pad for easy adjustment, as well as four sizes of over-the-nose cushions and three sizes of under-the-nose cushions, so you can choose the most effective and comfortable option.
Accommodates a variety of elbows
Elbows that are easy to attach
Elbows click into place with sturdy push tabs, and release easily. The AF541 mask can be used with four elbows: EE Leak 1, EE Leak 2, SE and bronchoscopy.
