Brief summary
Currently Fisher & Paykel Healthcare (FPH) is developing a new full face mask. The objective
of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the usability and acceptance of the
investigative mask, the effectiveness of the seal and headgear.

The participant will be randomised to use either full face mask prototype 1 or 2 as according
to the randomization log for 7 ± 3 days in home. The participant will then crossover to the
other full face mask prototype to use in home for 7 ± 3 days. Neither the investigators or
the participants will be blinded to the study.
