Enhanced Expiratory Rebreathing Space for Dreamwear or N30i

Enhanced Expiratory Rebreathing Space for Dreamwear or N30i
Hi,

The Enhanced Expiratory Rebreathing Space seems to be a very interesting topic, however it isn't commercially available and the examples I've seen on the board wiki are mostly for masks where the hose is placed in front of the mask. Does anybody have suggestions for masks where the hose is at the top of the head, like the Dreamwear and N30i? 

Thanks...

I do not believe that you would be a candidate for EERS. Why would you want to explore it?

I am not planning on using it, I was just wondering if it is possible. We could say I am inquisitive in nature Smile

If you used putty to block the nasal vents then the hose length to the head vent would be the first part of extra Re breathing space

Agree, and adding additional tube segment between the mask and vent is all that is needed for a nasal mask.
