CPAP masks

Are you ready to find the right CPAP mask for you?

What do modern CPAP masks look and feel like?

You might be surprised. As the leader in CPAP innovation, our masks are constantly getting smaller, smarter and more comfortable.

Types of CPAP masks

There are 3 main types of CPAP masks

Nasal pillows masks

Nasal pillows masks are very small and lightweight. They snuggle against your nostrils. They’re popular because of their minimal design and are a good choice if you tend to be claustrophobic. You can watch TV, read and wear your glasses while wearing a nasal pillows mask. If you move about a lot when you sleep, this may be a good mask for you.

Nasal pillows masks aren’t so good for people who need higher air pressures or people who tend to breathe through their mouth. But if you are a mouth breather, you can still try one and add a chin strap to help keep your mouth closed.

Nasal masks

Nasal masks fit over your nose and provide a slightly more indirect pressure compared to a nasal pillows masks. They’re better for people who need higher pressures and there’s a good range of sizes to choose from.

Nasal masks, like nasal pillow masks aren’t ideal for mouth breathers unless you add a chin strap. Some people find the nasal mask irritates the bridge of their nose. If you often get a blocked nose, you may have trouble with a nasal or nasal pillows mask.

Full face masks

Full face masks cover your mouth and nose, and are a good choice if you’re a mouth breather, if you frequently get a blocked nose or if you need higher pressure.

Look for a full face mask that has a good fit. This will prevent leaking air, especially near your eyes (giving you dry eyes). Newer styles of full face masks may allow you to wear glasses, read or watch TV without too much obstruction. It may be harder to sleep on your stomach while wearing a full face mask.

Recommended replacement periods for your CPAP parts

Just like a car, your CPAP equipment works best with proper maintenance for optimal therapy. And that means regularly replacing certain parts.

Every month
  • Mask cushions and pillows
  • Machine air filters
Every 3 months
  • Mask frame (excluding headgear)
  • Tubing (standard or heated)
Every 6 months
  • Headgear and chin strap
  • Humidifier water tub

It is recommended that you maintain and inspect your products on a regular basis, and replace any components if deemed necessary. If any visible deterioration of a component is apparent (cracking, discolouration, tears, holes, etc.), the component should be discarded and replaced.
