A CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) mask is a device that is used in conjunction with a CPAP machine to treat sleep apnea. The mask covers the nose and/or mouth and delivers a continuous flow of pressurized air to the patient's airway, helping to keep it open and prevent pauses in breathing during sleep.
There are several different types of CPAP masks available, each with its own unique features and benefits. The three main types of CPAP masks are:
Nasal masks: These masks cover only the nose and are held in place with a headgear. They are a good option for patients who breathe through their nose.
Full face masks: These masks cover both the nose and mouth and are also held in place with a headgear. They are a good option for patients who breathe through their mouth or who have nasal congestion that makes it difficult to breathe through their nose.
Nasal pillow masks: These masks have small cushions that fit into the nostrils and are held in place with a headgear. They are a good option for patients who find traditional nasal masks uncomfortable or who want a less intrusive mask.
In addition to these three main types, there are also hybrid masks that combine features of both nasal and full face masks, as well as oral masks that fit inside the mouth. Choosing the right CPAP mask is an important part of successful CPAP therapy, as a comfortable and well-fitting mask can help improve compliance and reduce side effects. It's important to work with a healthcare provider to find the best mask for your individual needs.
