DreamWear Gel Pillow Mask Design

Between the softer silicone frame and the fabric wraps, the DreamWear Gel Pillow Mask offers a more comfortable and stable fit. The top-of-the-head tube design accommodates active sleepers and various sleep positions for an uninterrupted night of sleep. Users can choose between small, medium and large gel pillows.

Intended Use

The DreamWear gel pillow mask can be used for a single patient (>66lbs/30kg) in CPAP or Bi-Level therapy.

Storage & Disposal

Store the mask at temperature ranging from -4° F to 140° F (-20° C to 60° C) in relative humidity 15% to 95%, non-condensing. Look at local regulations for proper disposal.

Is the DreamWear Gel Pillow Mask Comfortable?

The specialized design of the DreamWear gel pillow mask helps prevent red marks on the bridge of the nose and irritation in the nostrils. As a result, users are able to enjoy a more restful and peaceful sleep.

Cushion Comfort

Use Philips Respironics DreamWear Nasal cushions which are designed to gently align with your nose for a consistent and comfortable seal.

Headgear Comfort

With air flowing through the soft silicone frame, the flexible headgear is lightweight and comfortable. Plus, the top-of-the-head tube connection keeps tubing out of the way for open vision and freedom of movement throughout the night.

What are customers saying about Dreamwear Gel Pillows Mask?

“The Dreamwear Gel Pillow Mask is GREAT! The connector to the frame, on the top of my head, is easy to use with smooth rotation of the joint. The tubing does not dig into my cheeks, and it comes with all three nasal pillow sizes.” Review by Stu

“I have been a CPAP user since 2000. 18 years and lots of different masks. I’m a nasal pillow user and a side sleeper. After fighting with different masks over the years, I can finally get a full night sleep with this mask.”Review by Siggy

“This CPAP is wonderful and comfortable to wear.”Review by vee

    Every time a use a new gel pillows I have a difficult time getting a good seal for a while. Any suggestions?

    • Chris Vasta

      Hi Elizabeth, fitting a CPAP nasal pillows mask properly really depends on the position you are in. Your facial muscles change whether you are sitting up or lying down, so try sealing the pillows while you are all set in your sleeping position.

  • Nancy

    Hi…I have sensitive skin so I get red sores under my nose from my nasal pillow. I’m thinking I might try the gel pillow, do you think this will help? Thanks

  • Thomas

    PLEASE HELP. URGENT. How can I stop the BURNING sensation in my nostrils after 30-60 mins of use/?

    • Chris Vasta

      The burning sensation can occur when your nasal passages becoming dry. YOu may want to adjust your humidifier settings. You can use the Nasal Moisturizing SKU# AGCE1000. It may also help to use a nasal mask so the air is not so concentrated. With the Philips Respironics, Dreamwear Gel Pillow Mask, you could swap out the pillows for the cushion.

  • Sue

    I find I have a crackling noise from the front vent on this mask. If I cover the vent the noise goes away so I know that’s where it’s coming from. It is a very comfy mask but this is quite an annoying sound. I’d love to know how to fix the problem.

    • Chris Vasta

      Hello, Sue. The crackling noise is likely being caused by rainout. Rainout is the term for moister build up inside of the tube. The heated tube available for the CPAP/BiPAP machines is intended to prevent rainout, or you can use a tube buddy.

  • Ken DeVilling

    I want this pillow combined with a full face mask. I am a mouth breather. Must have the mouth covered.
    I really like the looks of this nasal pillow. can it be done?

    • Chris Vasta

      Hello, Ken. No the Full Face version of the Dreamwear mask dose not have pillows. The gel pillows from the Dreamwear Nasal Pillow Mask are not compatible with the Full Face Dreamwear mask.

  • John Dawson

    I am looking for the elastic band that attaches to the F&P icon + nasal pillows. Purchased May/2016

    • Chris Vasta

      Hello, John. I am currently not able to locate an order with your name from that date. May I ask which Fisher&Paykel mask you need the headgear for?
