Most CPAP users like to use masks that allow them freedom of movement during sleep. Full face masks might feel claustrophobic for some, while nasal pillows that go into the nostrils feel quite obtrusive. The good news is that there are many types of masks available, and you can always find the perfect CPAP equipment that suits your needs and requirements. Let’s check out two highly popular nasal masks, the Bleep DreamPort and the AirFit P10 Nasal CPAP mask by ResMed.
Bleep DreamPort CPAP Mask
Bleep DreamPort is quite an innovative CPAP mask that comes without a headgear. It is flexible, lightweight and highly comfortable. The mask uses medical grade adhesive strips in order to hold the seals (called DreamPorts) in place so that you will not even need a headgear. If you are looking for a mask that allows you maximum freedom of movement, then Bleep might represent the best choice.
While wearing the DreamPort mask, you will never wake up with red marks and irritations on your face. The mask does not have a headgear, so there is nothing that would cause these irritations. With DreamPort you can also sleep in any desired position. The DreamPort Sleep Solution is an extremely flexible and lightweight mask. It has been designed to fit all patients, regardless of the width of their nasal area.
You will get the perfect fit every time with Bleep DreamPorts. The DreamPorts are designed to meet at the level of your nostrils, without entering your nostrils. Patients who consider nasal pillows uncomfortable will definitely enjoy wearing the DreamPorts mask.
DreamPorts mask is also considered one of the most ergonomic CPAP solutions available on the market. It is important to mention that the seals are disposable, and one box of 32 ports + connectors will be enough for 16 nights of therapy.
Bleep DreamPorts top highlights:
- No headgear- meaning maximum comfort without the feeling of claustrophobia
- No straps- which means no more red marks and irritations on your face each morning. Just a restful night of sleep, without compromises
- No leaks guaranteed by the innovative design of the mask
- Bleep DreamPorts is compatible with all BiPAP/ CPAP machines
It is highly advisable that the first few times you apply the DreamPorts, you should use a mirror. This way you will ensure that the ports are placed well and that the ports fit securely. When you remove the seals, you will not feel uncomfortable at all.
Make sure to thoroughly cleanse the nasal area of dirt, facial oils, and other impurities before applying the ports. Only this way can you ensure that the seals adhere properly and securely so that you can get a good seal.
As you can easily note, there are very slight differences between the two types of masks. The AirFit P10 comes with nasal pillows that go slightly into the nostrils, while the Bleep DreamPorts will get adherence to your face with the help of adhesive strips. Both masks are super lightweight, comfortable, offering you an open field of vision and allowing you to sleep in any desired position.
