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.
Mask rotation has been proven to decrease skin breakdown, by varying the pressure points on the skin.¹ The AF541 mask allows you to alternate between over-the-nose and under-the-nose cushions, which offloads skin pressure points and supports your mask rotation strategies.
