Typically, most masks are triangular in shape and are worn over
your nose, or the nose and mouth with a full-face mask for mouth
breathers. Pressurized air is delivered through the mouth and
side straps maybe used to keep the mask in place. Masks may have
a hard plastic shape with a silicone seal or foam cushion that
covers the mask to increase your comfort. More recent masks will
have a gel cushion that can be shaped to an individual’s face.
A full face mask might work if you have nasal obstruction or
congestion that makes breathing through your nose difficult. If
you breathe through your mouth at night, using a full face mask
that fits over both the nose and mouth may be your best choice.
A nasal mask covers your nose and will have side straps to keep
the nasal mask in place. If you tend to move around a lot in
your sleep the suction on the nasal mask, as well as the side
straps will help keep the nasal mask in place.
Nasal pillow masks sit beneath the nose and have side straps
that keep the nasal pillow mask in place. This may be the right
choice for you if you feel claustrophobic in CPAP masks, need a
