the best (and not so best) respironics cpap mask. Please note the opinions listed here is extremely opinionated and it comes from actual feedback we get from our sleep apnea patients who faithfully
uses their CPAP and also from those who struggle with it.
Best respironics cpap mask in the nasal pillows category: (Watch
the video below to understand to what we mean.)
Pro Gel. Very good Respironics nasal cpap pillows. Many people absolutely love how comfortable these
nasal pillows feel especially the blue gel it is made out of. If you have soft silky hair, you will truly
benefit from their special fabric they use on their cpap headgear that
minimizes slippage. Very useful feature.
- Go Life For Men and the Go Life For Woman (a
This Respironics cpap nasal pillow has very few people who liking it. The
primary issues were – depending on your facial features, the strap was to close
to their eyes, insufficient spot to Velcro the strap and the angle of the nasal
pillow entered ones nostril made it feel uncomfortable.)
- Optilife -
no longer being sold. Some Home
Medical equipment companies still have a few on their shelf for sale. This is an older nasal pillow for CPAP. People
found that could tolerate higher cpap pressures with it. But…. The CPAP chinstrap
looking strap that came with the Optilife would not keep your mouth shut.
That’s because that strap was not meant to function as a CPAP chin strap but
just to stabilize the mask on your face. So many doctors would prescribe it and
many people bought it thinking that they can avoid using a CPAP Full Face Mask
but it backfired. Those same people had to spend more money and eventually buy
a Full Face CPAP Mask.
- Comfort Lite 2 -
no longer being sold. Very few people liked it because you could either
use it with Nasal Pillows or with a Nasal Mask Cushion. It was extremely bulky.
I still work and meet fans of these masks.
Especially unfortunate people suffering from Trigeminal Nerve Pain and
since nothing touched sensitive areas of their face, they loved this
Respironics CPAP mask.

Best respironics cpap mask in the Nasal Mask
category: (Watch this video at minute 3:48 to understand what we mean. It will then
make more sense to you.)
Wisp with Fabric Frame - Fantastic mask! Lots of people love it.
- Awesome for people who feel claustrophobic easily when using their cpap. You
can watch TV or read with glasses in bed with this mask. Only get the Wisp with
Fabric Frame – so comfortable on your face. It comes packaged with 3 different
size cushions so you try all 3 sizes to get the fit.
- Cpap TrueBlue Nasal Mask - Outstanding mask. Great for someone who
moves around in bed a lot. Very bulky. The headgear it comes in is big …great
for the average size head and large headed person. The forehead cushion is very
comfortable and it moves with you. Good for people who have been hurt from
their previous cpap mask, good for people with facial hair.
- Comfort Gel Cpap Mask or properly known as the
Respironics ComfortGel Blue nasal mask. – this mask has a very large fan base. Awesome mask. Great for people who bruise
easily from other masks and for men with mustache or beards.
- Easy Life Nasal CPAP Mask - older mask, great for higher CPAP pressures.
Many of our patients have shared with us how they feel their CPAP pressure does
not feel as strong whenever they use this mask. Personally I have felt that way also when I
used this mask. I asked the manufacturer rep about this years ago but they said
they never heard of this issue before.
- Comfort Fusion Nasal Mask – older and cheap
mask. The Respironics CPAP Nasal masks listed above is
hands down so much better.
- Comfort Classic - this mask was around when dinosaurs walked
the earth ;). Older mask. Get the never masks with newer technology
- Profile Lite -
older mask. Very few people like
it. Hard to find.
- Simplicity -
older mask that truly was ahead of its time. The latest version is the
WISP with Fabric. Recently some changes were
made to it and the people who were in love with it ……not so much in love now.
Best respironics cpap mask in the Full Face Mask category: (
Watch the video at minute 9:33 to understand what we mean. It will then make
more sense to you.)
- Amara Full Face Mask In Gel and in Silicone
- awesome concept but just somehow
failed to produce the results we so hoped it would. Many people would complain
how it leaks !
- Comfort Gel Blue Full Face Mask - very comfortable. Many like it but it is
super bulky. It used to be the preferred
mask for many people with facial hair and those that bruised easily. An older
mask and lost market share when other manufacturers came out with masks with
- Full Life -
This cpap full face mask was ahead of its time.
The mask was so tough and the headgear was super complicated. Most people hated
it. It was designed for people who were claustrophobic. If you suffer from
claustrophobia you must check out these masks we recommend – click here.
Best respironics cpap mask in Total Mask Category. ( Watch
this video at minute 12:11 to understand what we mean. It will then make more
sense to you.)
- Fit Life CPAP Mask – This is the better one out
of the 2 types in this category. Once
again, this is a very good example of how progressive and creative Philips Respironics
of a company is. Designed for anyone who
cannot tolerate the various brands and models of CPAP full face mask, people
with hard to masks that fit their facial features, disfigurement on the face or
wounds. Unfortunately, we are not big
fans of it even though we love the idea.
Most people do not like it because it leaks on the fore head, it pulses
or bounces when you inhale and for people with sensitive eyes…..it dries them
out very quickly when you open your eyes with mask and CPAP turned on. Now
there are small pockets of people who like it a lot but for the average person
it just does not work for them.
- Total Face Mask - have you seen this thing ? We have had zero
success with this mask. The handful of people that was shown this mask did not like it. It freaked them out.
