What is a CPAP Mask?
The components of CPAP therapy (often prescribed to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea) include:
- CPAP Machine to supply airflow
- CPAP tube to connect to the machine
- Optional humidifier, but highly recommended
- CPAP Mask (which is available in three different styles: nasal, full face, or nasal pillow.
The mask is one of the most important components of CPAP therapy. Having one that’s properly fitted and comfortable enables better compliance and increased acceptance of the therapy. CPAP masks have a cushion which creates a seal on the face to eliminate leakage. They are held securely in place by headgear which attaches to clips on the mask. Nasal Pillow CPAP masks are worn by inserting small, soft canula’s into the nares and securing them with straps around the back of the head. The full face CPAP mask, which covers both the nose and mouth, is primarily used for people who tend to breathe through their mouth while sleeping. The traditional nasal CPAP mask covers just over the nose and has been the most popular mask available. Some have gel cushions while others are simple silicon or dual walled. Different styles accommodate different facial features and structures as well as preferred sleeping positions, beards and glasses.
Types of CPAP Masks
All CPAP Masks work with all CPAP Machines, but here are several categories of masks available. These include:
How to Stop CPAP Mask Leaks
If a CPAP mask is the wrong size or style, or the cushion is old and causing sores, air may leak out, reducing the effectiveness of the therapy.
In general, a mask leak:
- Around the eyes or nose indicates the mask is too big
- Under the nose indicates facial hair is causing the leak
- Around the edge of the mask indicates that the cushion is losing its integrity and needs to be replaced. Most masks have replaceable cushions as well as headgear and other parts. We have an entire section devoted to CPAP Mask Parts.
- Other leaks can result when sleep positions interfere with the mask’s placement, particularly when sleeping on one’s stomach or side. There are special CPAP pillows designed to mitigate these types of leaks.
CPAP Mask Supplies
It is important to keep your masks clean and free of skin oils. They should be washed or wiped down daily. We suggest using warm water with a gentle, non-perfumed soap. They should be air dried out of direct sunlight. Antibacterial soap is not recommended as it reduces the longevity of the silicone parts. Any soap that contains lotions should also not be used because they can make the seal slippery. CPAP Mask Wipes and Cleaners are available on our website and are safe for all CPAP Mask cleaning.
CPAP Mask Liners
CPAP Mask Liners help with therapy compliance by creating a barrier between your face and silicone of the mask. This makes the masks more comfortable and eliminates most of the common problems such as skin irritation and air leaks. Each box of liners usually includes a 30-day supply of nasal liners and forehead liners. Mask liners also help to hold the mask in the correct position during sleep and allow people to use night-time skin products without affecting the silicone of the mask.
