The Philips Respironics Wisp nasal mask is a minimally invasive nasal mask, much like a nasal pillows mask but without the need to insert nasal prongs into the nostrils. If you like the idea of minimal-contact masks like nasal pillows masks, but don't like the idea of inserting the nasal pillow cushions into your nostrils, then the Wisp may be just what you're looking for.
The Wisp has a quiet vent which diffuses air nicely away from the wearer and a bed partner. The air leaves the elbow at approximately a 45-degree angle upwards as you are looking at the mask from the side. This means that if you're facing a bed partner, the bed partner is unlikely to feel any air. It also means that air won't be blowing down the tube onto your chest or arms.
With very few parts, the Wisp is easy to use and easy to clean. The replaceable cushion consists of the soft silicone seal which is attached directly and permanently to the hard, polycarbonate plastic shell which fits into the clear silicone or fabric "frame". The cushion, frame, headgear (with quick-release clips) and short tube are the only components of this mask.
The short tube is approximately 15 inches long and connects to any standard CPAP tube. One end of the short tube is the mask elbow with air vent and quick-release mechanism. The mask elbow rotates a full 360-degrees when connected to the mask. The other end of the short tube is a clear plastic swivel that also rotates 360-degrees. This swiveling action will reduce tugging and twisting of the CPAP tube, and will make wearing the mask more comfortable.
The stretchy headgear strap has four anchor points and is fully adjustable with hook-and-loop closures at each anchor point. The headgear strap seems to run a little small, so if you have a big head (like a hat size bigger than 8) you may notice that the headgear strap is slightly tight the first couple of nights of use. It will stretch out a bit after the first couple of uses, especially if you purposely don't use the quick-release headgear clips and choose, instead, to pull the mask off by stretching the headgear.
The entire mask weighs about 3 ounces.
Part numbers: Clear Frame (1094050), Fabric Frame (1094051).

The patented "tip of the nose" cushion results in minimal contact and a superior seal. In addition to the low profile, the cushion features "auto seal groove technology" which accommodates your every move. In essence the grooves at the top and bottom of the cushion allow the cushion to flex in and out. This flexing action helps to maintain a good seal even while you move around in your sleep.
