Somnera’s low-flow technology eliminates the cumbersome humidifier and allows the system to feature a hose so light that patients don’t feel attached to anything during sleep. This is the first sleep apnea treatment device that provides positive airway pressure without the continuous high airflow of CPAP. The reduced airflow has additional benefits: no humidifier is needed along with the smallest and lightest hose on the market. The Somnera System provides a great alternative to patients suffering from OSA who don’t want CPAP or who feel claustrophobic and overwhelmed by the continuous rushing airflow required to deliver therapy from traditional CPAP devices.
No, the Somnera System Airbox can only be connected to the Somnera System hose and mask.
Yes, the Somnera System fits within the existing reimbursement coding for CPAP devices. However, all insurers have different reimbursement policies. Check with your individual insurer for additional information about your device.
If you are tired of battling your CPAP hose, the Somnera System Hose could be your new best friend. CPAP hoses are heavy, industrial, and catch on the bedding, which can pull on the mask and disturb sleep. Somnera’s low-flow technology greatly reduces the airflow requirements for the Somnera Hose, which at 9mm in diameter is the smallest and lightest hose on the market. Designed for ultimate comfort, the soft, stretchy smooth body design leaves patients feeling like they are not attached to anything when they are sleeping. The Somnera System hose also has proprietary connectors that rotate at both the mask and the Airbox to allow patients unparalleled freedom of movement throughout the night.
The Somnera System provides the same therapeutic pressures as a CPAP device but does so with the development of an innovative valve that requires much less airflow. The valve creates a natural humidified environment on every breath. Less airflow from the Airbox gives patients the ability to draw in room air, helping to reduce excessive drying of the airway.
The Somnera System components have been tested to last up to 90 days. Accessories should be checked before each use. If anything is worn or cracked it should be promptly replaced.
