PixiTM mask: Just for children

 

Pixi isn’t a small-sized adult mask being used for children; it’s a nasal mask that is designed especially for kids ages two and over, taking into account the bone structure, facial characteristics and skin sensitivity of young faces. Every feature of the Pixi mask is carefully considered to improve therapy comfort, acceptance and overall experience for both the child and caregiver. Read more about the carefully considered features of the Pixi mask or download the Pixi brochure.

 

Respiratory support devices

 

ResMed produces a range of pressure support devices that are suitable for children in a range of environments. Once your child is ready to begin treatment, your care provider will recommend the most appropriate device for your child. Learn more about the :

 

ResMed Power Station II (RPS II)

 

ResMed devices also give you the option to connect to an external battery source, either the RPS II or Astral external battery. If your child needs therapy during the day and night, having such an external battery means he or she can get out with their equipment, even while in a wheelchair.

 

Helping kids adjust to therapy

 

Just like adults, children may initially resist the idea of something new – maybe even more so than adults. To help make your child’s treatment journey as smooth as possible, our therapy solution also includes extras that can help he or she overcome difficulties to starting therapy.

  • Along with the Pixi mask, ResMed has developed the fun loving Pixi character, who is featured throughout the whole treatment journey (from coloring sheets to stickers, on the device).
  • In addition to the functional User Guide, we’ve also created a Parent Guide for caregivers. Using tips and techniques from clinical specialists, the reassuring Parent Guide helps empower those who are new to therapy, and support them on their child’s journey.
  • A picture book called “The Magical Mask” tells the fictional story of a little girl who also needs to wear the mask every night.
  • Plus, we’ve developed a Pixi soft toy, coloring sheets and crayons to engage your child.
