What are customers saying about the DreamWear Nasal CPAP Mask?

Excellent Value for the Money
“I first found this CPAP mask at the CPAP Shop and it was the first mask I could seriously tolerate. I later ordered it through the medical facility that diagnosed my sleep apnea. They charged more than 6 times the cost at The CPAP Shop to my insurance company. After the discount, I could have purchased 3 masks from The CPAP Shop for the amount I had to pay using my insurance.” – Review by CJ on 9/22/19

DreamWear Nasal CPAP Mask – Excellent
“I have been using a CPAP machine and mask for over 6 years. I’ve been using the DreamWearNasal mask for over 1 year. I find the DreamWearNasal mask to be excellent. No problems breathing and can turn from side to side without a problem. If there is a leak—usually detected by my wife—I tighten the straps and no more leak. The nasal cushion is very flexible and easy to clean. I recommend it.” – Review by Tony on 5/21/19

Nice Mask for Side Sleepers
“The concept of this mask is nice. You can truly sleep on your side with this mask. The mask is very comfortable to wear. I can hardly feel the mask against my face when I have it on. It’s nice how the hose connects from the top. I wedge the hose between the headboard and mattress and am free to switch positions without having to hold the hose I as move.” – Review by Njcharlie

Best Nasal Pillow Mask That I’ve Ever Had
Over 19 years of using CPAP machines, this mask is the absolute best! Why?
Comfortable & doesn’t come off
I can roll side to side without getting tangled in tubing
nasal pillow stays in place so no air leaking noises
material is soft enough that it is comfortable to lay on”

    I really like my dreamwear headgear I use an under the nose, my problem is the head gear allows it to move. Is there a 4 point headgear like the dream wisp that uses the under nose mask??

  • Rich

    I tried the WISP Mask for the first time last night but when I open my mouth the air rushes out mt mouth. Is this normal?

    • Chris Vasta

      Hi Rich, if you open your mouth at night you’re better off using a Full Face mask rather than Nasal mask. When you open your mouth, the pressure is not going to your airways and is leaving out of your mouth.

  • Scott Smith

    During the night I evidentiy breathe through my mouth quite a bit. I often wake up with a very dry mouth. i have tried the nose pillows(not dreamwear) and nasal masks and end up waking up breathing through my mouth. I have also tried using a chinstrap, but find them annoying. My cardiologist told me about the dreamwear nasal mask, and says they almost like wearing nothing. Any suggestions?

    • Andrew Rivenbark

      Scott,

      The DreamWear family of CPAP masks from Philips Respironics are very popular. If you sleep with your mouth open and do not like the feel of a chinstrap, you may want to try the DreamWear Full Face model. Like the nasal mask, it sits underneath your nose but covers your mouth as well. It is not as bulky as traditional full face masks and is ideal for people who breathe through their mouth. If you have any questions email us at questions@thecpapshop.com or call 866-414-9700. Hope this helps!
