Masks and CPAP

Taikhum Sadiq

CPAP or Continuous positive airway pressure machines are incomplete without the mask. One wears a face or nasal mask attached to the machine during sleep. The mask is connected to a pump and provides a positive flow of air into the nasal passages in order to keep the airway open.

CPAP masks and headgear come in many styles and sizes to comfortably treat your sleep apnea. Different people have different needs, preferences and face sizes, and sometimes you might need to try different mask styles before you find the perfect one that works the best for you. Different sizes are available across different mask styles and brands. You might need to try on several styles and sizes to find the best combination of comfort and efficiency.

For example, if you take a small mask in one type it does not necessarily mean you will need the same small one in a different brand. Appropriate sizing is very important for the comfort and performance of the masks. There are three CPAP mask’s styles and all have different kinds of benefits. Advice from your doctor and CPAP mask supplier is important to make sure you have a mask that suits your needs and fits you properly.

The three types of masks are:

  • Nasal Pillow Masks
  • Nasal Masks
  • Full Face Masks
