After you decide which Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine is best for you it is very important to carefully consider the CPAP mask. A flexible tube connects the machine with a CPAP mask or other interface device that is worn over the nose and/or mouth. As everyone has different needs, concerns and faces a CPAP user will want to find the CPAP mask that is right for them. There are numerous CPAP masks available from numerous CPAP mask manufacturers, but you need to remember, the best CPAP mask is the mask that is comfortable and works.
It is important for you to consider several items when deciding on a CPAP mask: the fit, the size and the style. When considering a mask these items are the foundation for a CPAP mask that is comfortable and provides a proper seal for the air flow. If there is not a good seal, the proper air pressure level will not be reached and the CPAP user will not receive the full benefits of their CPAP machine.
Most individuals stop using their CPAP device because their CPAP mask is not comfortable. It is believed that approximately 60% of CPAP users stop using their CPAP equipment because of problems with their CPAP masks. Many of these issues can be resolved easily with the assistance of your physician and the staff at Sleep Restfully, Inc.
First the mask should seal the nose and/or mouth without the straps being too tight or too lose. If the straps are too loose, air will leak from the mask. If the straps are too tight, they can break the seal which will create leaks and more importantly they will cause discomfort. A mask should fit snug so it will not move during the night, but not so tight as to be uncomfortable.
Second, CPAP masks come in a variety of sizes which can vary by manufacturer. A general rule is to choose the smallest size that is wide enough to extend beyond the nostrils but does not obstruct normal breathing. On the Sleep Restfully website you are able to look under Resmed and/or Philips Respironics downloads and find more specific information, depending on the mask, which can be printed to assist in determining which CPAP mask fits best.
