[Equipment] Air deflector for partner protection against air stream

Air deflector for partner protection against air stream
Hello all,

The air coming out from my mask is disturbing my wife, because it blows to her face or neck. Therefore, I wonder if it could be possible to design an air deflector, that would blow air to another direction. Do some of you have any clue on how to design such a deflector ? Do you know if files for 3D printer exist ?  Unsure

I am using a ResMed Mirage Quattro.

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards.

A more modern mask like the Resmed Airfit F20 solves that issue with its quiet elbow

I agree, the quiet elbow is very silent plus it does a great job diffusung the air.

We sleep back to back--no problems with the CPAP exhaust for either of us

I have the quiet elbow and my wife says I sleep silently. 

180 degree difference from the way I used to.  Bigwink

I've ended up really liking the "Aloha" mask, but it does blow pretty strongly (and LOUD if it hits a sheet or pillow).
I cut a postage-stamp size piece from a filter and hot-glued it to the elbow.
Problem solved.
