This new Lowenstein Medical Lena Full Face Mask can be used by all CPAP users, but Lowenstein have produced this mask especially for those on high CPAP pressures, Bi-Level and Non-invasive Ventilators (NIV) - thus helping prevent mask leakage. Lowenstein have particularly addressed the problem that can happen for patients needing different pressures on Bi-Level and NIV with a higher inhale (IPAP) and exhale (EPAP) to prevent movement of the mask. See the video below:-
The Lena Mask version we supply is the vented mask for most CPAP, Bi-Level and Non-Invasive Ventilator users. The same mask can be used in specific cases when a non-vented mask is needed, and we do have some non-vented elbow sets but are not putting them on the website to prevent the more common vented mask users purchasing them by mistake, which is dangerous, so if you do need to purchase the non-vented adapter please contact us.
Lowenstein Medical says:-
Lena - Reliable at high pressures too!
Most people breathe in and out without having to think about it. Patients with respiratory insufficiency or sleep-related respiratory disorders need help with breathing. LENA – the new full-face mask from Löwenstein – has been developed specially for ventilation (and CPAP). The primary focus is on a comfortable mask fit, particularly when high pressures are applied or when the pressure difference between inspiration and exhalation is considerable.
Three factors are essential for an optimum mask fit at high therapy pressures.
The mask cushion stands out with its double lip. The therapy pressure creates an air cushion that provides a perfect seal without causing any pressure points. The shape mirrors the anatomy and is based on two factors: Our patient face database that has been growing for many years and the market feedback that is constantly collected and evaluated.
The second important factor concerns the connection between mask cushion and mask body. On the one hand, the connection must be stable during the therapy – both at constantly high pressures and with high pressure differences during inspiration and exhalation with Bi-Level therapy. On the other hand, the connection must be easy to disassemble so that it can be cleaned simply and effectively. An apparent paradox that LENA resolves effectively.
The headgear completes the essential triad. The headgear material is strong enough to ensure that the mask does not leak or become unstable at high pressure differences. An individually adjustable forehead support including forehead cushion gives LENA extra grip.
Forehead cushion - broad surface distributes pressure evenly.
Forehead support - easy-to-use sliding element permits almost infinite adjustment.
Mask cushion - double lip for a perfect seal all round; new design with anatomically rounded, soft edges; varied structure on the surface ensures a good, lasting fit.
Connection for O2 feed - no adapter required
Exhalation system - quiet and diffused flow for unimpaired wearing comfort
Headgear - withstands high pressures and big pressure differences; colour coding helps with correct mask assembly; rounded edges helping prevent marks on skin.
Elbow - vented with ball joint for complete freedom of movement; non-vented for valve circuit ventilation (not available on the website, but can be ordered by request).
The Lena Full Face Mask is supplied in either Small, Medium or Large.
IMPORTANT:- The mask cushions are NOT interchangeable with the different sizes of mask.
There is also an optional 'Ripcord' Quick Release Cord for removing the mask quicker and easier, and an optional XL Headgear if needed.
