Title
(EN) COMFORT ENHANCER FOR A BREATHING APPARATUS
(FR) DISPOSITIF AMELIORANT LE CONFORT POUR APPAREIL RESPIRATOIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A comfort enhancer for supporting a CPAP mask and hose is designed to be portable and deployed on any standard bed. The support has a bi-pod base placed between the mattress and the inner spring of the bed. An upright pole, removably attached to the base and adjustable in height, carries hose clamps. A bracket attached to the top of the pole has a cantilever arm pivotally attached by a spring loaded pulley. The cantilever arm also carries hose clamps. The comfort enhancer supports the air hose at a distance from the bed and above the head of the user allowing the hose descend vertically to the user. The cantilever arm pivots to compensate for the movement of the mask and the spring loaded pulley absorbs the shock to the line.

Un support fixé à la partie supérieure du montant possède un bras en porte-à-faux relié pivotant par une poulie sous charge de ressort. Le bras en porte-à-faux supporte également des brides de serrage. Le dispositif améliorant le confort supporte le tuyau pneumatique à une certaine distance du lit et au-dessus de la tête de l'utilisateur, ce qui permet au tuyau de descendre verticalement vers l'utilisateur. Le bras en porte-à-faux pivote de façon à compenser les mouvements du masque, et la poulie sous charge de ressort absorbe le choc.
