It’s important to choose a CPAP face mask that effectively treats your individual sleep apnea while maximizing your comfort.
Talk to your doctor about your unique needs, to determine your ideal fit.
CPAP mask and headgear
Minimal contact masks
As the name implies, minimal contact masks have little contact with your face and are often preferred by those that like to have an open field of vision. The lightweight design allows you to sleep freely through the night. In order for this type of mask to deliver successful therapy, you must be able to breathe freely through your nose.
Nasal masks sit around the base of your nose. Like minimal contact masks, they are small and lightweight and can be used by people who like to read or watch TV before they go to sleep, as their line of vision is not obstructed. Again, you need to be able to breathe freely through your nose to use these types of masks.
Full face masks
Full face masks can be used whether you are a nose or mouth breather as the mask seals around your mouth and nose.
