Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is the first company that developed an oral mask. The Oracle HC452 delivers air pressure only through a mouthpiece. The mask has been clinically proven to treat OSA and offers a viable alternative to a full face mask, with less structure against the face.
Here is how the Oracle works:
The mouthpiece comes in two sizes and is placed behind the lips and in front of the teeth. An outside flap is then fitted into the mouthpiece and folded over the lips. This combination keeps the device stable in the mouth and has been redesigned without the inner flap of the earlier design, which rested on the tongue
Out of Box Solution. All Fisher & Paykel masks come fully assembled and ready to wear so there is no fumbling or confusion.
Bias Diffuser. The Oracle mask has an exhalation vent design of a series of small holes and uses a filter to help reduce noise. The mask comes with five filters.
Rotating Adjustment Dial. This dial adjusts the space between the SnapFlap Cover and SoftSeal mouthpiece to increase comfort and stability and can be used after the mask has been fitted into the mouth. This is an upgrade to the earlier design of the Oracle.
Single Strap Easy-Release Headgear. One strap around the back of the head keeps the Oracle stable and a swivel in the front of the mask allows free rotation of the CPAP hose.
The headgear is adjusted once, then easily removed with just a pull of the Easy-Release cord. No ongoing adjustments are needed.
Why might I need an oral face mask?
An individual who cannot breathe through their nose at all due to a severely deviated septum, nasal congestion or facial injury may find an oral delivery only preferable over a full face mask.
Oral masks deliver airflow only to the mouth. The nasal passage is closed with nose plugs. It is highly recommended to use a heated humidifier with an oral mask.
The manufacturer recommends that new patients purchase their devices, masks and initial accessories from a homecare company that can provide an individualized patient equipment setup, clinical and after-sales support, and a program to assist patients with therapy success.

Exceptional service and value
The customer service at CPAP Clinic is outstanding. I ordered the Z1 CPAP unit for a trip to Europe but I didn’t order the battery pack. When I contacted Air Canada to ‘register’ my CPAP device they informed I couldn’t use it without a battery pack. I called the CPAP Clinic for help, the found me a battery pack at a very fair price and shipped it overnight. Thank you CPAP Team!

My #1 source for equipment
If you are looking for great prices and excellent service this is the place. I have purchased my machine, masks and accessories from CPAP Clinic and have never been disappointed. The service that I have received has been exemplary. Also, with CPAP Clinic as a registered ADP vendor (Ontario), I have had no issues submitting my purchases through my private health insurance company.
Outstanding service and competitive pricing. Products are fantastic. I wouldn t go anywhere else to purchase my CPAP accessories.
