- This mask should be used with the positive airway pressure device recommended by the manufacturer, your physician, or a respiratory therapist.
- The mask should not be used unless the positive airway pressure device is turned on and operating properly. The mask;s vent holes should never be blocked. The vent holes allow a continuous flow of air out of the mask.
