CPAP Nasal Masks

    Nasal CPAP Mask Overview

    Nasal CPAP masks seal around your nose in the shape of a triangle and are held in place by a four point headgear. They do not seal over your mouth. Nasal CPAP masks are the original type of CPAP mask and remain the most popular. They come in silicone, gel, or cloth styles. Avoid low end nasal CPAP masks as the comfort gap between high and low quality nasal CPAP masks is large.

    Nasal FAQs

      Why might I prefer a nasal mask?
    The ideal CPAP mask is not noticeable to the user during CPAP therapy. If you breathe through your nose only, the nasal mask may offer the best therapy. Nasal cushions create a very good seal around your nose, while keeping a small profile. Also, nasal masks can be found in silicone, gel, foam, or cloth material. The SleepWeaver masks are the only cloth masks on the market, and are a very popular choice among nasal mask users. Lastly, most nasal masks have a forehead support which offers stability and support for the mask.

      I sleep on my side or stomach, what are my options?
    Sleeping on your side or stomach is preferable to sleeping on your back because sleeping on your back worsens all forms of sleep-disordered breathing. However, sleeping on your side or stomach can present problems with CPAP therapy. Both positions can put pressure on one side of your mask increasing your leak rate. Your options are to (1) try a mask that other side sleepers like (2) try bed pillows made for CPAP users.
    • Masks: In our experience, some masks allow for movement in different sleeping positions better than others. See our recommended masks for Active or Side/Stomach Sleepers.

    • Special CPAP Pillows: Regular bed pillows can put pressure against the mask and cause leaks. CPAP pillows are made with CPAP users in mind. These special pillows are designed to minimize the contact of the CPAP mask with the pillow, even when you are sleeping on your side.
