This Years Best CPAP Mask !  

The recommendations you will see here  is based from actual feedback we get from our patients and also based on analyzing their clinical download report from their CPAP machine. What I mean is , it is pointless for a person to use a CPAP mask they like but they are experiencing severe leaking and  their sleep apnea is not being treated.

 

The views expressed here are very biased and opinionated. We listen very closely to the feedback we get from our patients and make changes based clinical data.

Caveat ~ Everyone's facial feature, tolerance, attitude (to the idea that they now have to sleep with a mask) and other underlying health issues is unique to that individual. That is why a CPAP mask that works great for one person may not work for another.


Allergies & Colds (What CPAP Mask To Use)

We do not recommend using any Nasal Pillows or a Nasal Mask while your nose is congested. They will make you feel worse. When our nose is clogged up, we become mouth breathers.

Recommended CPAP Full Face Mask to use when you have Allergies (CPAP Sneezing) are:

(I know you hate the idea of using a Full Face Mask. But the fact that you suffer from allergies means you are a mouth breather during allergy season or when you are suffering from a cold. Just get a Full Face Mask ......keep it on the side as a back up mask.....use it "only" when your nose is blocked up)

Allergic To My CPAP Mask 

These masks are excellent alternatives if you are currently allergic to the material - primarily the Silicone that your mask cushion is made of. If you are allergic to your Nasal Pillows, you should then use the following Nasal Mask and Full Face Mask.

  • The ELAN 



  • ( Both these nasal masks made from cloth)

 

Cpap Full Face Mask

If you are Allergic to the “Gel” in your Cpap Full Face Mask, then consider using full face mask that has only Silicone in it. 

  •  Sleep Weaver ANEW  ( Full Face mask made from cloth)
  • Use The Sleep Weaver Advance Mask (a nasal mask but you use a CPAP Chin Strap with it to keep your mouth closed. 
  •  Use a CPAP Mask Liner with the mask you think you are having an Allergic Reaction. Place the liner  between your face and the mask.
