What's the Difference Between Nasal, Full Face and Nasal Pillow Masks?
Nasal Masks: Around the Nose
Nasal masks are great for CPAP users who breathe through their nose. A chinstrap can be used for those who breathe through their mouth.
This type of mask seals around the nose in the shape of a triangle and is generally held in place using four point headgear.
Full Face Masks: Around the Nose & Mouth
Full Face masks are great for users who breathe through their mouth or frequently suffer from allergies or congestion.
Like a nasal mask, a full face mask is also triangular in shape, but seals around the nose and mouth. It is also held in place by four point headgear.
Nasal Pillow Masks: Around Base of Nostrils
Nasal Pillow masks work well for claustrophobic users because they have minimal contact points to the face. It also accommodates facial hair and provides a clear line of vision for watching television or reading a book before bed.
