Tired of adjusting your headgear every time you take your mask off during the night? Quick-Clips allow users to easily remove and replace the mask on your face without re-adjusting the headgear straps.
This describes the type of mask cushion for the mask. These values are either cloth, foam, gel, or silicone. The foam and gel are usually both silicone based materials. The masks that are marked as "silicone" are without gel or foam.
Indicates which masks come packaged with more than one cushion, pillow or prong. Masks can come packaged with ALL Sizes or a combination of sizes as a Fit Pack. This is ideal for users who have not tried the mask before and do not know the right size to select.
This property identifies masks that are ideal for small facial features. Any mask with a size petite or extra small will be marked 'Yes'. Nasal Pillow masks are ideal because they accommodate the size of the 'nare' or nasal openings, not the face.
The value will be marked 'Yes' for CPAP masks with interfaces that are unique to CPAP users with wide facial features. Masks with 'Wide' cushion sizes would fall under this category. Nasal pillow and prong masks are ideal for wide faces because the seal occurs around the nare, not the face.
Do you move around a lot when you sleep? These masks are ideal for users who either sleep on their side or stomach or restless sleepers who toss and turn. There are a few specialized cushions that address this issue as well as most Nasal Pillow and Prong CPAP masks.
These masks are designed to prevent mouth leaks. If you are opening your mouth during the night, airflow escapes and reduces therapy effectiveness. Users who are experiencing a dry mouth, sore throat, or sinus congestion may require a mask that seals around the mouth.
These masks have the least amount of material around the face, fewer headgear points, and offers more freedom when you sleep. Most Nasal Pillow and Nasal Prong masks are ideal for claustrophobic users.
These CPAP masks have interfaces that accommodate a wide variety of facial hair styles. Gel cushions and foam inserts provide support and comfort for users who may need to over-tighten headgear straps to help seal around facial hair. Silicone gel also helps create a fluid seal over the hair.

All Breeze Pillows are interchangeable with the Breeze pillow frame.
All parts of the "old" and "new" Breeze versions are compatible with each other. The shell and pillows are unchanged. The newer version Breeze has a more durable hose guide with adjustable halo strap anchor positions. The foam inside the head cradle is thicker. The new tubing has a swivel/hose connector on the CPAP hose end.
"This is my 3rd order for this product and it is excellent. Before I found this I went through CPAP hell! Masks that left marks on my face, infected my eyes and make me hate to go to bed. I found this mask, it touches you nowhere but on the head and the nasal pillows set gently on your nose. It is heaven. No marks on your face, no sore places on your face and no infection in your eyes, it is so quiet I have to make sure it is on. This is the answer to all of you out there that hate going to bed because you have to use your machine. This makes it just like you do not have anything on, it takes a little getting used to for the first time CPAP user but all the masks do. I recommend this to anyone having to use a CPAP machine. GREAT Product!!! C. Kaufman, Texas"

Breeze Sleepgear Review
Dorothy S, Cambridge, ON – July 28, 2008
"The good points about this nasal pillow cushion interface/mask is its light weight, non claustrophobic feel while wearing it and its easy setup for use. If this is your first nasal pillow mask and you are unsure of the pillow size, go for the unit that contains all 3 pillow sizes. You may be able to trade the unused sizes for the size that you use via the message board on this site.
Although this is my 3rd unit, I do have bad points to express as well. The major one is the short life span of this mask. The major culprit is the piece that the pillows insert into at one end and the hose connects to at the other end. In my case that brittle plastic piece breaks down in 4 to 6 months meaning that I must replace this mask AT LEAST twice a year. If it wasn't for that, I would have rated it higher.
The other bad point is the noise from air leaving the exhaust ports. It doesn't affect me so much as it does my partner."

Many participants will continue to use the Breeze as an alternative
What Participants want improved about this mask: “The shell, that holds that nasal pillows, is not at the same angle or position that my nostrils are and it is not adjustable. I could get my left nostril positioned into the pillow but the right one would not line up properly.” – Bridget M.

As a heavier mask some reported the Breeze shifts around at night
Difficult to seal for some participants who are side sleepers

How often should I replace my mask?
Medicare allows for mask cushion replacement every three (3) months, and a complete mask system replacement every six (6) months. CPAP manufacturers and vendors suggest these replacement schedules as well.
In our experience, most mask cushions begin to deteriorate after about six months of use. The cushion eventually becomes too soft to hold a seal. The headgear straps lose elasticity and must be tightened more and more to get the same quality seal.
We strongly suggest replacing cushions and pillows as soon as they start to soften. Air leaks may reduce the effectiveness of CPAP therapy and headgear that is too tight may cause facial sores at pressure points. In most cases, replacement headgear is available if it is stretched out or the Velcro worn out.
To see what parts of your mask are replaceable refer to our Replacement Part Finder. Just search for your mask to see all of the replaceable parts.
How do I care for my mask?
Masks should be washed daily with warm water using a very gentle soap or baby shampoo, and left to air dry. Never use antibacterial soap as it will break down the silicone of the mask cushion. Avoid soaps that include lotion which can coat the mask and cause it to lose its seal. A safe cleaner is the Control III Disinfectant CPAP Cleaning Solution. Remember, going to bed with a clean face will improve your seal and protect the lifespan of your mask.
The best time to clean your mask is in the morning after use. This removes the oils left behind from your skin which can reduce the lifespan of your mask. We recommend using mask wipes to make daily morning cleaning easy. The mask wipes are made from materials that will not break down your mask.

Why might I prefer a nasal pillow mask?
Nasal pillow delivery systems offer less contact with the face than either full face or traditional nasal masks. This system works well for those who tend to feel closed in or claustrophobic. Many nasal pillow systems have nothing that cross in front of the bridge of the nose allowing for a clear line of sight for reading or watching TV.
It can be easier to achieve a seal with this system, because there is less for you to adjust and less surface area to create and hold a seal.
Nasal pillow systems may work well for someone with a mustache or beard as the seal occurs only at the nares or nasal opening.
Someone who has a facial mole or scar near or around the nose, may find getting a seal with a traditional nasal mask difficult. Nasal pillows are an option in this circumstance.
Most nasal pillow masks also come with all sizes included to make finding the right size easier.
