Part Number: 1109097Brand: Philips Respironics
These LiquiCell Nasal CPAP Cushions give extra comfort and help avoid mask skin and pressure sores. Whilst they are designed for the nasal bridge, these can be placed anywhere the mask touches the skin without losing the mask seal. However, they are not designed to be inserted into the nostrils with nasal pillows mask.
The ultra-thin and nearly invisible liquid-filled membranes of the pad provide a synthetic, external bursa that allows the body to glide or float with an object and aid in the reduction of shear and friction of the skin.
Hope2Sleep highly recommend these, as even in the unlikely event people prefer not to use them with their masks, there will always be a use for these in the medicine cabinet. (Kath Hope, CEO of Hope2Sleep, herself was relieved to discover she got instant relief from a painful heel sore caused by a new pair of shoes! and other customers have told how they've come to the rescue for other burns and sores etc).
There are 30 disposable pads per pack with adhesive-backed strips, designed for one night's use, but some people may find they can get more than one night's wear out of them, although the adhesive will probably not work on successive nights. Using them for more than one night is NOT recommended medical advice - it is simply observation some users have reported.
The pads do NOT contain Latex and are made from polyurethane containing an odourless silicone fluid. Each pad is approx 6 cm long.
received these are a trial from Philips at an open day. They were on the shelf for a few weeks, until i got a nose sore using my Resmed Airtouch Mask. I've started using these cushions since, and its letting the sore heal. you can barely feel them when being worn, so much smaller, lighter and thinner than the Resmed Gecko.I'll be ordering a full set now.Only given 4* as they are 1 night use only, and they are quite expensive for what they are. I intend to use only when the bridge of my nose gets sore, so probably 3 days on, 3 days off to spread the usage.

Helpful in stopping a sore red nose.
The pad was too short to go round my nose. It just hung on top. People wider noses wasn't considered. They should have sizes but it seems to be one size fits all which is not the case. The length should be specified in the advert. Very very disappointed. waste of money. The least they should do is refund my money. Am gonna get the ResMed which comes in small, medium and large size.

Sorry the size isn't mentioned, but we've not come across anyone having a trouble with size before. I don't recall you've actually contacted us to ask for your money back and a review to help others is certainly not the place to do this! However, our charity couldn't afford to do this anyway and we do try hard to find suitable products for our fellow sufferers. Unfortunately what works for one person doesn't always work for another, but the Liquicell do have a high rate of positive feedback for many people. I hope you find a solution, and please don't throw away the Liquicell as they have many other uses (sores, burns etc) so are not just for the nasal bridge.
Am getting a few nights use out of each cushion by sticking it onto a piece if hard clear plastic during the day. Def makes a full face mask more comfortable on the bridge of the nose

Good tip there Keith which I'll have to try, as I can only get one night's use out of them. Kath
I found these very thin and they did not help in anyway to reduce the irritation caused by the mask on my nasal bridge. I was dissapointed.
Again, sorry to hear yet another product didn't work for you, as both the products do work for the majority of people. Unfortunately with CPAP "what works for one person doesn't always work for another" so it seems you've been unlucky, and I do hope you find a way to sleep more comfortably.
There seemed very little gel in the pads I received and so the gel that was in the pad has been spread to the end of the pad giving the bridge of my nose very little protection.
I have used these for a while. I find them more convenient and more comfortable than a gecko
Quick delivery and the product was just as described , worked really well
Unfortunately the first night I woke up with a burning feeling.Removed the gel pad and had a bad reaction to the pad.So although they are a good cushion, my skin had an allegetic reaction.
Sorry to hear you had an allergic reaction, as we've not heard of that so far before. If you used the pad on broken skin it would be worth trying again when it's healed just in case it was due to irritation rather than an allergy. Meanwhile, one of the Silent Night Liners would be worth trying to act as a barrier between your skin and the mask to help with the healing. The CPAP Cream is also an excellent product with healing properties.
Great product does exactly what is says on the packet.
