What type of mask should I choose?
There are three main types of CPAP masks:
Nasal Pillow Masks – Have soft silicone pillows that sits just inside the nares of your nostrils. These masks are very small, lightweight and do not intrude into your field of vision. These types of masks may also be a better fit for people with facial hair. For more information on Nasal Pillow Masks click here.
Nasal Masks – These masks have a soft silicone cushion that covers the entire nose, from the bridge to the upper lip. Some of these masks may also have forehead pads, which rest on your forehead to stabilise the mask. For more information on Nasal Masks click here.
Full Face Masks – Have a soft silicone cushion that goes from the bridge of the nose to your chin. These masks are usually best for mouth breathers as it covers both the nose and mouth. Some of these masks may also have forehead pads, which rest on your forehead to stabilise the mask. For more information on Full Face Masks click here.
