CPAP masks come in different types and different sizes across all brands, and the one that you choose should be based on personal preferences to suit your needs.
There are three main categories of CPAP Masks:
Full Face Mask
Nasal Pillow Mask
As the name suggests a full face mask rests over your nose and mouth with the assistance of headgear, making it more stable and allowing you to breathe throughout the night. However, if you prefer something smaller and less obtrusive, the nasal mask covers your nose to deliver air directly through your nasal passages. Nasal pillow mask is the lightest and quietest of all three, and sits at the entrance of your nostrils, creating a seal with pillow-like cushions. Each mask has its own design, benefits and use, and you should discuss these with your Sleep therapist, as it’s important for the success of your treatment to be as comfortable as possible.
Here is the list of 4 popular CPAP masks for 2019 to help you choose.
