Where is the Frame Size Located?
To find the size of the DreamWear Nasal Mask Frame, locate the elbow opening in the frame which is located at the top of the unit. Just above the opening, grey letters are imprinted on the frame to indicate the size. The letters "SM" represent a size Small, "MED" represent a size Medium, and "LG" represent a size Large.
Fitting Guide for Customers Who Already Have a Frame
For those that have an existing frame, this helpful guide displays if it is fitting properly. The ideal fit for the DreamWear series of masks is one in which the frame goes up the side of the face, between the eye and the ear. If the medium frame slips when positioned this way, and slides back over the ear, it's a sign the small frame is a better fit. If the medium frame bunches up close to the eyes or partially blocks view, it's a sign the large frame is a better fit. The manufacturer has provided a helpful frame fitting guide that can assist with frame selection.
How To Determine the Correct Frame Size?
The frame size is equivalent to the distance around the head from one side of the nose to the other. Follow these steps to determine the appropriate frame size:
Begin by placing the measuring tape marker at the base of the nose on one side. Use the tape to follow along the side of the cheek and upward over the top of the head. Keep pulling the tape measure around the face, down the other cheek, and to the base of the nose on the opposite side.
Use this measurement to most closely match one of the frame sizes listed below:
- Small Frame - 19 Inches
- Medium Frame - 20 Inches
- Large Frame - 22 Inches
Please Note: The DreamWear Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear - Fit Pack is sold with a Medium frame only. The medium frame will fit most users.
Elbow Connection to the Mask
The DreamWear elbow is inserted into the circular opening at the top of the DreamWear mask. The flexible mask frame material allows the user to place pressure on the frame as the lip of the elbow is placed inside the opening. The elbow connection should be completely enclosed within the opening, leaving only the outer rim visible.
I was skeptical of the mask initially, however it only took a couple of days to acclimate myself to the mask. It sleeps well and stays secure even though i am an active sleeper. I will purchase again and CPAP,com had the best prices overall for this product. more...
Now that I'm in the correct size, the frame doesn't bother me at all.
frame fits very well
Exactly as described. Easy to order and reorder and fast shipping.
The design works well. It's easy to forget about the hose, since it stays out of the way no matter how much you turn in the bed. Be sure you get the right headgear. I started with a medium and it kept slipping back off my head. Switched to a small last night, and now the headgear stays in place and the nose seal went from good to excellent. The straps in back could be better. They tend to slip on fine hair, as others have noted. My hair is long enough that I can bunch it up and run it between the straps, and that seems to work. more...
