TAP PAP Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask Review

There are many innovative and useful features in the TAP PAP Nasal Pillow that users love. The innovation of the TAP PAP Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask is the ThermAcryl™ mouthpiece. This supportive piece eliminates air leaks, provides easier breathing, and avoids the need for headgear, straps, or other support apparatus on the face and head. By minimizing the design, TAP PAP offers a more comfortable and secure fit.

Key Features of TAP PAP Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask 

The most distinctive feature of the TAP PAP is the upper teeth mouthpiece, which reduces adjustment hassles and provides more stability. Mask stability helps minimize air leaks, and in this case, this mask completely eliminates them.

Other features include:

  • Streamlined nasal pillow mask design which allows easy breathing regardless of pressure
  • Flexible tubing which offers freedom of movement with no headgear straps or adjustments
  • Three pillow sizes to fit each face shape and size

Benefits of Using TAP PAP Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask

Using the TAP PAP means you never have to wear uncomfortable headgear or straps for CPAP therapy. Eliminate claustrophobic full face masks and end unsightly red marks due to mask facial contact.

The TAP PAP moves freely with your nighttime movements, so active sleepers will love the flexibility. And this nasal pillow mask works well with varied air pressure settings, so you don’t have to change your mask when you change your pressure.

What Is Unique About TAP PAP Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask?

The unique ThermAcryl™ mouthpiece sets this mask apart from other nasal pillow masks. This mouthpiece component minimizes the number of parts in the mask and is easy to fit. You only need to warm the mouthpiece in hot water and place it on your upper teeth. Once shaped to your mouth you no longer need to adjust.

How to Clean and Maintain the TAP PAP Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask

Cleaning the TAP PAP is easy. Rinse the mouthpiece well after every use with cold water and let air dry.

Every week you should remove the pillows from the mask frame. Soak the pillows and mask frame in a bath of lukewarm water with light soap. Using a gentle toothbrush scrub the mouthpiece.  Remove the mask parts and thoroughly rinse them in clean water. Dry all the parts thoroughly.

How to Fit the Mouthpiece and Mask of TAP PAP Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask

Fitting the TAP PAP mouthpiece is a step-by-step process that takes some time. But once that fitting is made you never have to readjust your mouthpiece again.  Fitting the mouthpiece requires soaking it in warm water until it softens and molding the softened mouthpiece to your upper teeth. Use your fingers to fine-tune the mouthpiece for a perfect fit.

How to Change and Adjust the Nasal Pillows

This mask comes in three sizes of pillows. Hold the mask frame with the medium size pillow against your nostrils to check for sizing. You should use the largest size pillow that you can, ensuring that the pillow outlets fit comfortably into your nostrils. If you are unsure you can try the different sizes after you have completed the fitting process and have connected your mask to your CPAP machine.

This mask comes with a thirty-day money-back warranty. The TAP PAP is covered for product defects or if you simply do not find the mask comfortable. The flexible warranty gives users the freedom to try the mask for several nights to make sure it is the perfect fit for their CPAP therapy.
