Additional Information on CPAP Masks
What is CPAP?CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. As its name suggests it involves the uninterrupted flow of air under pressure into the airways, via either the nose, the mouth or both. CPAP can be used to treat a variety of breathing problems, most commonly obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when airways collapse during sleep preventing air from flowing in and out of the lungs. As well as causing noisy breathing (snoring) this can lead to tiredness and difficulty concentrating during the day because of sleep which is repeatedly interrupted. CPAP works by delivering a continuous flow of air which keeps airways open. This air is delivered through some form of mask or tubing on the face. In order for CPAP to work it is important that pressure is developed, and this usually means there needs to be a seal around the mask so that all of the air flow goes into the airways rather than escaping around the edges.
What different types of mask are available and which might suit me best?There are three main types of CPAP mask, a full face mask, nasal mask and nasal pillows. Each of these works in a slightly different way, and has different advantages and disadvantages. Although there are factors which might suggest which mask may suit you best, there are no golden rules. The best way to find the ideal solution for you is by trial and error. There is no doubt that taking the time to choose carefully – and not being afraid to change your mind and try something new – is really important. Finding a mask which fits well and is comfortable is the best way to ensure you are happy to continue using it, and feel the benefits which CPAP can offer you.
As well as the basic mask design, there may be options to change the type of strap used to secure it (for example fabric held in place with Velcro or a plastic strap) and liners for the mask to improve the seal. Most masks come in a range of different sizes. Remember to keep asking about different options, and trying them out to see which solution is right for you.
