LiveO2 has engineered two types of masks, our original or standard mask and our Premium Mask for Ultimate Flow.
An EWOT mask kit is critical to the effectiveness of your system. You want a mask that has a comfortable fit, allows for high flow rates of air, and has a long lifespan.
For most users, our premium mask kit is the best choice. If you are on a budget or have many users of your system you may consider our standard mask kit.
The best EWOT mask for most users is the LiveO2 premium mask kit.
This new mask comes in four size options. It has a LiveO2 engineered Ultimate Flow Valve. This valve allows a flow rate of over 150 LPM (liters per minute). The valve is autoclave compatible.
In addition to coming in four sizes, it also features four adjustable straps. These straps make it easy to get the perfect fit every time.
The cost of the premium mask kit is higher than the standard mask but the service life is over three years opposed to six months for the standard mask kit.
The total cost of the premium mask kit after three years is $240.
The total cost of the standard mask kit after three years (5 replacements) is $450.
Features and benefits of the premium mask kit:
The best option for facilities with more users.
The standard mask kit weights less and costs less to purchase. It is compatible with both our adaptive contrast and standard systems. Because of it’s lower cost it is a great fit for facilities that have many users. They are also great in demo environments where you need a new mask for each user as it is impractical to wash and sterilize masks between users.
This mask also includes a silicone pillow that can be inflated or deflated with air using the included syringe. This allows for an airtight seal around the contours of your nose, cheeks, and mouth.
This mask is paired with a comfortable neoprene strap. The Strap also has two velcro closures one for the base of the head and one for the crown of the head ensuring a secure fit. Unlike the premium mask, you need to adjust the strap every time you put on the mask.
Benefits of Resistance
This mask has a smaller opening and creates a small resistance when drawing a breath. This will actually benefit some users as it creates a mild exercise for respiratory muscles. A slight resistance assists in the gas transfer in the lungs. You can learn more about the science behind breathing with resistance and why we do not use positive pressure here.
Features and Benefits of the Standard EWOT Mask Kit:
Can I share masks?
We recommend against “sharing” masks. Most people sweat and exhale saliva in their breath when they work out. This creates a film which must be removed by rinsing or washing with soap and water.
How do I clean my mask?
Our masks are easy to clean. You can wash them with hot water and soap in the sink after use. You can learn more about cleaning your mask here.
Do you offer discounts on bulk orders?
We do offer discounts if you are buying a large number of masks. The discount is automatically applied on our store when you add multiple masks.
Does your system use positive pressure?
Some systems claim to be “positive pressure” systems. Our system uses Airflow Resistance to create better results. You can learn more about the science of airflow resistance here.
Do both masks work with all systems?
You can use both the premium and standard mask with any LiveO2 System.
What sizes do the masks come in?
The standard mask is one-size-fits-all. The premium mask comes in four sizes: petit, small, medium, and large. You can download a sizing guide from the premium mask page on our store.
Can I use ozone to sterilize the masks?
Do not use ozone to sterilize EWOT masks. Ozone is considered a respiratory toxin because ozone injures the lungs. It is not medically appropriate to use ozone to sanitize components used in breathing circuits. Learn how to clean your mask here.
