SNAPP-X Nasal Prong Overview
- NEW Multi-ported exhalation port
- NEW Locking clips for elbows
- Cushioning bellows
- Unique Butterfly headgear attachments
- Special 360 Degree Swivel Elbows
- Several wearable configurations
The Small Size cushion is not compatible with size Medium, Large, and XL masks. There are two different size elbows and tubing. The Small Size cushion will not work with Multi-Size tubing.
There are three points for the mask to form a seal. A soft nasal "volcano" shape creates a double seal at the patient's nostrils. The prong is narrow at the top and bells out as it comes down to the cushion body, allowing the prong tips to insert into the nose to a depth of 1/8" to 1/4". This creates a soft seal in the interior of the nares. The pillow body at the end of the prong creates a simultaneous seal at the outer rim of the nares. Lastly, the cushion body seals once the head straps are adjusted for patient comfort.
This feature addresses the soreness patients often experience when a cushion obstructs only the inside of the nose. The bellows cushion has an added feature of swivel elbows on each side, that allow movement of 360 degrees. Patients have the freedom of wearing their CPAP hose up over their head or over the chest. The single exhalation port is found below the bellows cushion, thereby directing air flow downward, rather than onto a bed partner.
The headgear is a very simplistic design of just two straps, one fitted over the crown of the head and the other over the back of the head. The headgear attaches to the bellows on two soft butterfly flanges. If needed, a user would be able to place the mask on themselves using only one hand, once the straps are adjusted for comfort.
Clinical trails on the SNAPP-X have proven it to be not only comfortable and light weight, but perfect for the restless or claustrophobic patients.

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.
Masks should be washed daily with warm water and gentle soap or baby shampoo. Let the mask 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.
For customers who want to completely disinfect their mask and accessories, there's an even better option than wipes. The Lumin Mask and Accessories Cleaner uses powerful UV light to disinfect, killing almost all bacteria almost instantly. It's not a cleaner and doesn't scrub or wash anything, but for simple disinfecting the Lumin works great!

Easy to knock off your face. Does not work for me.

I began using this interface in June of 2008 and really like how it works for me. It is so minimal! There is a hardly any mask at all. It seals very well and is very comfortable. It is also very easy to put on and remove. At this price, I was stocking up. I know this is not a popular mask, but for me, it is great! Since I am expecting them to not be available soon, at this great price, I stocked up. more...

I'E BEEN WEARING THE SNAPP-X FOR THREE YEARS AND I FIND IT TO BE VERY COMFORTABLE AND RARELY LEAVES MARKS ON MY FACE. IN THE BEGINNING I DEVELOPED A SORE INSIDE MY NOSE BUT IT WENT AWAY SOON AFTER. more...

I have used the Snapp mask since 05 and really like it. It gives me the freedom of movement I need plus I do not wake up in the mornings with the red dents in my face. It is also quite. The only problem with the Snapp was the elbows leak after about 6 months. The new Snapp-X has different elbows but it has a major drawback for me. The exhaust is way too loud. I do not know why as it is designed just like the Snapp. The new Snapp-X I have exhaust so much that I can tell a difference in the amount of air I need for the apnea. If you like a quite mask then I would not recommend the Snapp-X more...
