Your CPAP mask is the most important piece of equipment in your treatment plan, second only to the device itself. Finding exactly the right style and proper fit for your individual face shape can help you stay comfortable all night while wearing the mask, without fear of leaks or shifts.
For first time CPAP users, it’s important to know that leaving your mouth uncovered while connected to the CPAP device can reduce the effectiveness of your treatment, which is why most sleep specialists recommend a full face mask when beginning CPAP therapy for sleep apnea. There are a variety of types and styles to choose from, so we recommend consulting your sleep therapist when choosing/fitting your CPAP mask, to ensure the best type and fit for your needs.
Full face CPAP masks seal around your nose and mouth. These masks are used by those who breathe through their mouth during sleep and do not wish to use a nasal mask and chinstrap.
