Best CPAP Masks for Active Sleepers

Best CPAP Masks for Active Sleepers

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.

A Review of CPAP Masks for Active Sleepers

The AirFit N30i Nasal CPAP Mask offers more flexibility for active sleepers. The top-of-head swivel rotates as active sleepers change position, so the connection remains secure. The contoured nasal cushions prevent red marks even as active sleepers turn on their side. The additional septum bridge membrane on the mask also ensures a secure seal no matter how often the sleeping position changes.

Because it is 50% lighter than the most popular nasal pillow masks there is less weight on the face of an active sleeper as they change positions. Soft nasal pillows reduce contact and red marks even when side sleeping. The flexible headgear remains stable as an individual moves about at night. And the flexible tube pivots with nighttime movement so there are no disconnections and the sleeper stays CPAP compliant.
