Best CPAP Masks for the Active Sleeper

If you typically toss and turn a lot while you sleep, you are an active sleeper. Traditional CPAP masks and tubing can be a problem for those who change position while they sleep. However, new technology and innovative designs have taken the active sleeper into consideration. Keep your CPAP mask secure no matter how much you move at night with the suggestions below.

ResMed AirFit™ P10 Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask with Headgear

Rigid tubing not only hinders movement but can also tug on your mask and come undone during the night. The ResMed AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow CPAP mask features more flexible tubing that moves with you. The lighter tube design is also durable so the most active sleeper can change positions frequently without compromising the seal. Additionally, the split-strap design of the headgear enhances the stability of the mask with minimal face contact.

Along with flexible tubing, more compact lightweight CPAP mask designs help active sleepers rest comfortably. The ResMed Swift™ FX Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask with Headgear was designed with active sleepers in mind. Lightweight tubing and a smaller mask design allow more freedom of movement. By minimizing the overall size and reducing the amount of facial contact, active sleepers can feel as if they are sleeping with no mask at all. Included soft wraps help increase comfort without compromising security.

Nasal CPAP mask users will love the top of the head tube connection of the Philips Respironics DreamWisp Nasal CPAP Mask. Because the tube is connected at the top of the head, users are able to move freely throughout the night without getting tangled. The connection swivels as sleeping positions change which keeps the seal remains secure in any position. The included headgear offers four connection points and magnetic clips to keep the mask in place, while making it easy to connect and detach the mask when needed.

The top-of-the-head tube connection design is consistent with other Philips Respironics DreamWear masks. We recommend the Philips Respironics DreamWear Full Face CPAP Mask with Headgear for those who prefer full face masks and the Philips Respironics DreamWear Gel Pillow CPAP Mask with Headgear for those who use nasal gel pillow masks.

Along with tubing materials, mask design and improved connections, headgear also plays an important role in enhancing comfort for active sleepers. The ResMed Mirage Activa ™ LT Nasal Mask with Headgear features MicroFit dial technology, which more precisely adjusts headgear tension. The design not only allows greater freedom of movement and comfort but also helps prevent red marks from headgear straps that are too tight.

    I’m using the fx swift nasal mask and it is causing a sore on my left nostril. It really irritates while I sleep. What is causing this, and what can I do to stop it?

    • Chris Vasta

      Hi Kent, we are sorry to hear you are having trouble with your therapy. Sores on your face could be from a few different things, including having the headgear too tight around your face, making it dig into your skin. Make sure you adjust the headgear properly so that it fits your face, but not too tightly. Another reason could be that your cushion is worn out. If you have not replaced your CPAP cushion recently, we recommend changing it out. Please give us a call at 866-414-9700 if you have any additional questions.
