Choosing a CPAP mask that has the perfect fit and function for your situation can be confusing. CPAP therapy masks are worn on the face to provide a gentle stream of air through your nose or mouth. Masks should be comfortable and fit securely. There are several different categories of CPAP masks and a trained professional will help you find the mask that’s right for you.
Nasal Mask: Mask seals over the nose and is shaped like a triangle. The mask attaches with 4-point headgear. This mask is best suited for patients that breathe through their nose, sleep their side and want a lightweight mask.
Nasal Pillow: Mask seals around the base of the nostrils, is shaped like two small, soft pillows and attaches with headgear. The mask makes minimal contact with the face. This mask is best suited for patients that breathe through their nose, sleep on their side, and have a difficult time getting a good seal.
Full Face: Mask seals around the nose and mouth and is shaped like a triangle. The mask attaches with headgear and is ideal for people who sleep with their mouths open.
