CPAP Nasal Masks – What’s the Big Difference?

CPAP nasal masks spell the big difference in treating sleep apnea caused by the closure of airways during sleep. To prevent this from happening, regular air pressure is fed through the air passages. It’s time to educate yourself about the device if you have this type of sleep apnea.

The Different Brands of CPAP Nasal Masks

The various CPAP brands offer different nasal masks. The masks play a pivotal role in sleep apnea treatment. These masks are placed over the nose and to hold it in place, these have chin straps. CPAP clinics in Ontario offer a wide range of masks and they offer rental service for patients who prefer to ‘test-drive’ their mask before making a purchase.

Ontario CPAP clinics have a line-up of nasal masks from ResMed, Respironics, ComfortLite, Fisher and Paykel, Breeze, and Mirage. They also have lesser known brands to widen your choices to suit your budget too, but these are carefully selected for their efficiency and durability. The CPAP nasal masks Ontario clinics have to offer are latex free, easy-to-assemble and easy-to-clean. These companies have been in the business for years and continue to improve their products.

These are models that are so light on the face the wearer can’t feel any discomfort whatever sleeping position they assume and some these masks are designed with minimal or flexible adjustable head straps and parts which makes these easy to put on and remove and must be easy to adjust without much fuss. The easier these can be managed, the more convenience it gives to the user.

The different makes and models of CPAP nasal masks in toronto clinics have to be tried on to help customers find one that has an excellent fit, does not leak, or makes a ruckus when air is expelled. Excellent fit and comfort are top priorities when choosing a mask or else the CPAP treatment is ineffective. It is also more expensive in the long run if you don’t like your CPAP mask because these cannot be returned or exchanged.

The feel of a mask on the face can be uncomfortable, unless it is of flexible material. The same is true with CPAP nasal masks. It has never been easy to choose a mask with the right fit and unless you try it on for a night, you cannot know if it indeed it has a comfortable fit. CPAP nasal masks in toronto CPAP clinics have different shapes to conform to different face sizes and shapes, because admittedly, no two face shapes are identical in dimension.

How it Works

CPAP increases the air pressure on the air passages – nose and throat. Patients with this type of sleep apnea go through alarming non-breathing episodes that cause fatigue and drowsiness during daytime. To determine the type of sleep apnea, doctors put patients through a polysomnography or sleep test; during the test doctors can pinpoint sites where air obstruction occurs and recommend a nasal mask if the obstruction is along the nose and throat.

The CPAP mask is attached to the CPAP machine by tubing, which transports a steady supply of pressurized air to the airways. The pressure is prescribed by a doctor not a CPAP machine seller who can only help you make a selection from the range of CPAP nasal masks in toronto health home care stores.
