Tucker the Turtle Pediatric Aerosol Mask is currently on an extended backorder with the manufacturer. For an alternative bottom-loading Pediatric Sidestream mask, click here.
Tucker the Turtle Pediatric Mask is designed to appeal to children, to make nebulizer treatments easier. This mask's design has shown to reduce aerosol deposition in and around the eyes. This mask is meant to be used with a Philips Respironics Sidestream nebulizers. This product is made of soft, flexible material for added comfort and the included elastic strap provides a snug fit. This mask must only be hand washed.
I have an older child that likes using the “fun” masks also but they don’t come in any other size but child. Having the different sizes would be great to chose from.
Cute but very stiff!
The Turtle nebulizer masks for pediatrics is perfect fit for my littles face. However, because the masks were either flatten while in storage or while in transit they are difficult to hold open. That lack the metal ridge that would aid in flexing the plastic. So we've had to alter it by placing something heavy on it to flatten it out for a few days. We will try it again soon.
works as expected
original worked great - ordered 2 more
String plastic smell
So this wad the only Phillips resperonics pediatric mask I could find. But I was ok with that because my son loves Tucker turtle. The turtle part of the mask is just a sticker on the mask and I could see how it would start peeling with use. However, I have never used this mask on my son because when I opened the mask it smelled like a beach ball. The plastic smell is very strong and has not disappeared even after being washed and sited it for several weeks. Not sure if the smell is just a fluke, but it's prevented Mr from using it.
