ULTepap Single Size Cartridge Replacement

SKU: ULTepap Replacement Body and Cartridges


ULTepap Single Size Replacement Nasal Cones

Product Description

These are the single size replacement body and cartridge seals for the ULTepap system. The ULTepap™ employs soft, comfortable nasal pillows to gently seal primarily on the epidermis under the patient’s nares.  This is a design that has been in use in CPAP interfaces successfully for over thirty years, and does not require extended contact with the nasal mucosa.

ULTepap™ is FDA cleared for the treatment of mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) for adults over 66 lbs. This therapy device has a number of uses in the clinical management of OSA.  These include:

  • Patients who are non-adherent to CPAP therapy
  • Patients who travel and would like a more portable solution that doesn’t require a power source
  • Patients diagnosed with mild to moderate OSA who would prefer to initiate a less cumbersome therapy than CPAP
  • Patients in a facility that doesn’t allow CPAP devices for fear of spreading COVID

What is EPAP?

EPAP stands for Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure, meaning positive pressure is only exerted during exhaling. Most sleep apnea sufferers are only familiar with CPAP, which provides continuous pressure administered through a blower and mask.

Of course, this can lead to a great deal of discomfort related to ill-fitting equipment, difficulty in traveling with the CPAP machine, cleaning, noise, and even embarrassment related to its use. EPAP works with your own exhalation, meaning no power source or additional equipment is necessary.

How Effective is EPAP?

  1. While EPAP is new to most of our patients and customers it has already been proven to be a successful form of sleep therapy for decades:
  2. ​Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure (EPAP) has been known to be an effective treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) for almost as long as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). 
  3. ​EPAP has been shown to treat OSA successfully since 1983.
  4. A pilot evaluation of EPAP created with an experimental nasal valve device was tested on thirty men and women and found to be effective in treating OSA and snoring.
  5. ​It was not until 2008 that the first commercially available EPAP device was cleared by the FDA. It is a disposable device that is intended to be used one-night only.
  6. ​By 2011, nine peer reviewed published articles studying the effectiveness of EPAP had demonstrated clinically and statistically significant reductions in apnea hypopnea index (AHI), oxygen desaturation index (ODI) and sleepiness as well as high patient acceptance and compliance.
  7. ​A latter review of 18 studies demonstrated that EPAP can improve all of the OSA outcomes based on what can be measured during a sleep study as well responses from questionnaires. The studies also showed that adherence to EPAP therapy was high for most studies.
