How do you know what type of CPAP mask would best fit your needs while treating your obstructive sleep apnea? At My CPAP Club, we offer two types of masks for CPAP therapy, including:
Using the right mask is essential to the success of your treatment. You need a mask that is comfortable and fits properly. It should form a good seal on your face so that air doesn't leak (this would be uncomfortable and make your therapy less effective). A nasal mask that covers the nose is the most common choice among individuals suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.
However, some people breathe through their mouth when they sleep. In this case, a full face mask that covers both the nose and mouth is the best option. Another option would be a nasal mask and chinstrap, which will prevent the jaw from opening during sleep and still provide you with effective CPAP therapy.
If you are still unsure of what CPAP mask is the right option for you, contact My CPAP Club today at 1-888-272-7050. We would be happy to explain our different mask types and answer any questions you may have.
