  • Publication number: 20160095996
    Abstract: Nasal interface systems and related components. An embodiment of the system employs a nasal interface comprised of a base portion and a soft pad portion. The base portion employs one or more side-entry fluid supply hoses and flow redirection structure which gently and quietly redirects the flow of incoming fluid to avoid the creation of noise. One or more fluid supply hoses are connected to the one or more inlets, preferably by releasable engagement structure. The nasal interfaces of the invention are sleek, unobtrusive, visibly attractive and avoid exposure of expelled gases toward partners of the wearer.
