Several types of masks are available from the Talk About Sleep Online Store, including the full face CPAP mask. The others are oral and nasal pillow masks. All three types achieve the same purpose – delivering air from the machine to the body – so one is not necessarily better than another. What’s important is to choose a mask that fits well, that is comfortable and that does not leak air.
Beyond those basic guidelines, choosing among the three types of masks is a matter of personal preference for a simple and understandable reason: everyone’s facial features are unique. Choose the type that works best for you.
Full face CPAP masks cover both the nose and mouth while delivering pressurized air. They are designed for patients who breathe through their mouth, or through both their nose and mouth, during sleep. They also work for those who breathe primarily through their nose but sometimes open their mouths during sleep.
Those who experience mouth leaks when using a nasal-only mask should consider switching to a full face CPAP mask. Some nasal-only mask wearers use a full face CPAP mask seasonally or periodically to help with nasal congestion resulting from allergies or chronic stuffy noses.
The Talk About Sleep Online Store offers nine different full face CPAP masks from four different manufacturers. Compare mask designs, noise levels, features and other differences.
Make your decision carefully. The fit of the mask will strongly influence the comfort of your sleep therapy each night.
