The Nasal CPAP mask is designed to fit over the nose. This type of mask is available in many different sizes and models, as well as differing cushion types. The Nasal mask cushion is available in silicone, gel, or plastic. In addition, other nasal masks include Nasal Pillow interfaces.
The full face mask is the best type of CPAP mask for mouth breathers since it covers the nose and entire mouth in a triangular shape, or an ovular shape that covers the entire face. This type of mask is typically available in gel or silicone. CPAP Full Face Mask Selection: Resmed, Respironics, Fisher & Paykel, and more!
The Nasal Pillowinterface is more lightweight than standard Nasal masks. While the CPAP Therapy is applied directly through the nasal passages via Nasal Pillows, this process is accomplished via small inserts (called Nasal Pillows) at the base of the nare. The advantages of the nasal CPAP masks include wide varieties in style, size, material, cost and light-weight.
Hybrid masks have commonalities with full face masks, but instead of covering the nose and mouth, they incorporate a nasal interface with mouth delivery. Popular for patients who wear glasses or want to read in bed.
The opposite of the nasal pillow CPAP mask, this type of mask only covers your mouth. It creates a seal against the inner and outer lip and air passes exclusively through the mouth.
If nasal cushions, nasal pillows and full face cushions are just too much then the unique Total Face Mask may be the perfect solution for you. Total face masks are the only type of mask that cover your entire face, including your eyes. Total face masks are similar to the masks worn by firefighters, and allow unobstructed vision.
Mask kits come with the replacement frame and cushion. When your mask is no longer performing, sometimes purchasing replacement parts can be cheaper than replacing the full mask. While a mask requires a prescription, replacement parts do not require a prescription to purchase.
