Preventing Nose Sores Caused by Full Face CPAP Masks

CPAP full face masks are often attributed with causing sores on the nose ridge of cpap patients.  Nose sores can be caused by many things.

The cpap full face mask may cause nose sores for the following common reasons:

  1. Improperly Positioned Mask — reposition the mask and properly tighten the the cpap headgear
  2. Too Tight — loosen the cpap headgear so the mask fits snuggely, but not too tight
  3. Wrong Mask Size — order the next size up or down and try the new mask
