The top-of-head connection keeps tubing out of the wearer’s way, letting them move and sleep in any position. The nasal cradle cushion – ResMed’s first – is designed to reduce facial markings and irritation.

AirFit N30i is also convenient for equipment providers and sleep labs – it fits 96 percent of PAP users with just two frame sizes and four cushion sizes.

How AirFit N30i compares to the market-leading nasal top-of-head mask

In side-by-side comparisons, three out of four users preferred AirFit N30i over the other nasal mask with a top-of-head connection. A majority stated they loved AirFit N30i and would take it home as their mask of choice, with many claiming it was “very comfortable,” it’s “easy to use,”or that it “caused little disruption to their bed partner.”

“AirFit N30i is a great choice for nasal mask wearers who move when they sleep,” said Jim Hollingshead, president of ResMed’s Sleep business. “It’s all about freedom – users are free to sleep however they want and enjoy a comfortable, reliable seal. And AirFit N30i is so easy to fit, sleep professionals are going to be freed up to serve more people.”

AirFit N30i is also available in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and most of Europe, with other countries planned to follow later this year.

MIL-OSI Australia: Woolworths continues to deliver drought relief to dairy farmers – Woolworths Group

Source: Woolworths Limited

Monday 21 January 2019: Woolworths Drought Relief Milk has now provided $4.5 million in relief payments to more than 285 drought-affected dairy farmers across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.

It comes as Woolworths continues to sell Drought Relief Milk on the eastern seaboard while it works with the dairy industry on longer-term reform measures.

Woolworths Fresh Food Director Paul Harker said it was clear the effects of drought remain significant for dairy farmers.

“The drought is far from over and neither is our drought relief milk effort,” Mr Harker said.

“The fourth monthly payment was distributed to dairy farmers last week and more relief is on the way.

“We want to find a pathway to a more sustainable dairy industry over the long term and will continue to engage closely with industry to this end over the coming months.”

Dairy Connect CEO and New South Wales Drought Relief Committee member Shaughn Morgan said the extension was vital.

“We’re grateful Woolworths has listened to Dairy Connect’s representations on behalf of dairy producers and extended the sale of their drought relief milk range,” Mr Morgan said.

“While many producers have welcomed recent rain storms, the impact of drought persists as dairy farming families and communities move into the New Year.”

Premium Milk Limited Chairman and Queensland Drought Relief Committee member Peter Jervis said it was welcome news for the 150 Queensland dairy farmers he represents.

“We’re appreciative of the manner in which Woolworths took the initiative to introduce the Drought Relief Milk and also the speed in which the funds have been made available to the drought-stricken farmers,” Mr Jervis said.

“We applaud Woolworths for listening to our calls and extending the range.”

Woolworths’ Drought Relief Milk first hit the shelves in October 2018 and was always set to run through until at least January 2019.
 

The limited-edition range offers customers the option to buy Woolworths Full Cream and Woolworths Lite Milk varieties at $2.20 for two litres and $3.30 for three litres.

The extra 10 cents paid on each litre of milk is distributed in full to drought-affected dairy farmers.

The distribution of funds is overseen by the Drought Relief Committee, which includes Premium Milk Limited Chairman Peter Jervis, Dairy Connect CEO Shaughn Morgan, Parmalat General Manager – Supply Chain Vince Houlihan and an independent auditor from KPMG.
