Understanding CPAP devices and masks


CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy consists of a device that sends airflow through tubing to a face mask in order to keep your airway open during sleep.


It may be difficult at first, but adapting to your sleep therapy will lead to better sleep and a healthier life.

Masks


There are a variety of comfortable masks to fit your individual needs. The mask will cover your nose or your face, depending on how you breathe during the night. You can breathe naturally with your mask on.

Cushions


Cushions make the mask comfortable while forming a seal so that the air from the therapy machine can keep your airway open.

Headgear


Headgear keeps the mask stable while you sleep. Over-tightening your headgear can damage your equipment and lessen the effectiveness of your treatment.

Therapy machines


A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) sends a constant flow of air pressure to your throat so that your airway stays open while you sleep.

Display settings


CPAP machines have different settings that allow your doctor to adjust air pressure. You should always be sure to use the setting your doctor specifies.

Tubing


Tubing passes air from the CPAP machine to the mask. It’s important to position the tube over or through your headboard so that you don’t pinch it during sleep.

Filters


Filters ensure that you’re only breathing clean air. Some machines have one filter, while others include an additional ultra-fine filter.

Airflow


The CPAP machine pushes air into the tube and through the mask into your airway. This prevents your airway from collapsing and stops sleep apnea from occurring.
