CPAP Nasal masks are breathing devices used for relieving sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a chronic health issue. It causes choking or gasping, loud snoring, sudden awakenings during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common type of sleep apnea. OSA results in breath obstruction, which stops the airflow in the nose and mouth. A common cause of OSA is overweight which results in blocking of airways. Large tonsils and nasal congestion also result in sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea (CSA) is not as common as OSA. The delay in passing the signals to central nervous system results in CSA. It may also be caused due to injury involving the brain stem.
The CPAP nasal masks help eliminate OSA. OSA causes the person to miss one or more breaths of air. This may occur repeatedly during the night causing breathlessness during sleep. CPAP nasal masks prevent the blocking of airways by increasing the air pressure in the nose and throat. Nasal masks deliver the pressurized air that prevents sleep apnea from occurring. This mask also improves cardiovascular effects and reduces the symptoms of heart failure.
Sleep apnea masks are available in a variety of forms and sizes. The nasal mask is attached to a tube that is connected to the CPAP machine. The mask is made to be comfortable and provide a proper seal for the airflow. The comfortGel nasal masks have new robust design. This provides higher levels of comfort to people suffering from sleep apnea.
A CPAP nasal mask covers the nose and holds it securely in the place with straps or headbands. There are masks, which also cover the entire face. The nose cushion device fits under the wearer’s nostrils. There are nasal prongs, which have plastic extension to help them fit inside the nostrils. Oral nasal CPAP masks deliver the pressured air to the mouth rather than the nose. CPAP nasal masks are the most commonly used breathing devices by sleep apnea patients.
CPAP nasal masks have to be chosen carefully. If they don’t fit comfortably on your face, it may result in air leakage. The facial hair also may result in air leaking. The nasal masks are designed to ensure maximum comfort to sleep apnea patients so that they sleep without disturbance.
There are nasal pillow masks available in the market, which makes it easier for the patients to sleep on their side or stomach. There are no straps against the cheeks, so they will suit people with facial hair. They are suitable for faces of any size and shape. While choosing a nasal CPAP mask select the right size so that it will fit perfect on your face.
