What makes the Eson 2 so Simple and Effective?

The main feature that we like about the Eson 2 is the classic design. There are so many “new and improved” CPAP Mask styles out there. Sometimes those masks do a great job for a lot of people, but many times they just provide more complications. The Eson 2 is a standard nasal CPAP mask. That means that it has a 4 point headgear and triangular shaped cushion that surrounds your nose. However, that doesn’t mean that the “classic” style can’t provide you with a modern fit.

New Features of the Eson 2:

The Eson 2 may be a very classically styled Nasal CPAP Mask, but it has some features that make it leaps and bounds better than previous models. Many old school nasal masks are clunky and hard to work with. There were too many pieces and parts that have to be disassembled and cleaned. They were also typically very heavy and bulky on the face. The improvements on the Eson 2 take all of that to the next level.

Eson 2 Features:

  • RollFit Seal– This proprietary seal was designed by Fisher and paykel to provide a great seal ,but to also help with one of the major downsides on many other Nasal Masks. That would be the irritation or abrasion at the bridge of the nose. The new cushion automatically adjusts itself to account for your unique nasal bridge.
  • Intuitive headgear– This headgear is legitimate high quality. For years we have spent time trying to get CPAP users to fit their headgear by removing bottom straps and carefully reattaching after placing it on your head. The Eson 2 headgear has the ability to stretch so that you can leave the straps connected and pull the mask right over your head. Without compromising the fit of the mask.
  • Multi-size Mask Frame– The frame on the Eson 2 allows you to connect all 3 sizes to the same frame. It is also available as a fitpack. This means that you can buy one mask and almost certainly guarantee that one of the 3 sizes included will fit you.
  • VisiBlue Highlights– There are obvious blue colored connection points to make sure that disassembling your mask and reassembling it is much easier than previous Nasal CPAP Mask models.
  • Ultra-quiet exhalation diffuser– The washable diffuser on the elbow of the mask allows you to exhale silently and without blasting your bed partner with your exhalation. As a person that sleeps next to a CPAP user, I can tell you that it a game changer for me.

How to fit your Eson 2:

The initial fitting of your Eson 2 is part of what makes this mask so simple for you to use. Because it uses the classic 4 point headgear, this mask provides a very stable and reliable fit. When fitted properly.

Step by Step initial fitting instructions:

  1. Make sure that you have removed all packaging. Including the plastic cover that goes over the cushion.
  2. Grab the mask by the bottom straps and allow the mask frame to hang downwards.
  3. Pull the bottom straps over your head and down below your ears. The seal and frame of the mask will rest against your forehead at this point.
  4. Pull down the mask frame and cushion over top of your nose. The seal must be surrounding your nose and the blue top strap will be sitting on your forehead.
  5. Now you will gently tighten the headstraps, starting with the top straps. Pull from each side equally as you tighten to ensure that the mask stays centered on your face.
  6. Adjust the mask as needed to accomplish an effective seal and to remain comfortable.

Why the Eson 2 is a great choice for those struggling with Nasal Pillows:

If you are struggling with a Nasal pillow CPAP mask, then you are not alone. Nasal pillows are certainly the simplest and the least invasive option of CPAP mask, but that doesn’t mean that there are no drawbacks. One of the main issues that we encounter with Nasal Pillows are new users that feel like they cannot breath normally. In many cases that is because you are trying to exhale through small holes against the Positive Pressure from the CPAP. That is where a mask like the Eson 2 can change the game for you. It is very small, lightweight and easy to use. This means that it has many of the features that drew you to a Nasal Pillow Mask. However, with a Nasal CPAP Mask you can exhale much easier. Many users notice a massive difference almost immediately.

How to Clean and Maintain your Eson 2:

The Eson 2 must be cleaned and maintained on daily basis according to Fisher and Paykel. The Mask and Frame are designed to be cleaned daily. The headgear and diffuser should be cleaned at least once per week. Check out the detailed instructions below for step by step cleaning instructions. Details can be found in the Eson 2 User Manual.

Disassembly for Cleaning:

  1. Unhook your headgear clips from the mask frame.
  2. Slide the forehead straps of the headgear downwards from the top of the mask frame.
  3. Next, remove the silicone seal from the mask frame.
  4. Then, remove the swivel from the elbow.
  5. Remove the diffuser from the elbow.
