Nasal Masks

How to Choose a CPAP Mask

Determine which type is best for you – full face, nasal mask or nasal pillow mask – by how much general air pressure you need. If you need a smaller amount in general (below 10 cmH2O), you can try the nasal pillows. For higher a amounts(10 cm H2O or more), you can try a nasal mask. If you breathe through your mouth most of the time while you sleep, you will need a full face mask.

Next, go by the size and shape of your face when choosing a CPAP mask. Measure the width of your nose or the width of your mouth (depending on which part of your face will be fitted to the mask, according to which type of mask you need) and purchase the mask with the dimensions that match up to the dimensions of your face.
