At Philips innovation is a priority

Over the past 10 years our 3D facial scanning system has been building a vast database that analyzes facial differences in thousands of sleep apnea patients.


Ensuring the right fit for you is important - mask issues are often cited as causes for poor compliance to CPAP therapy.* The Philips DreamWear masks have the innovation to feel like nothing at all. 1-3

If you’re starting therapy, it’s helpful to understand how your mask and related components work – and when to replace them. Masks are used to deliver the air from your therapy machine to you. Most masks have built-in exhalation ports that vent your exhaled air.

Comfort and fitting tips

 

A mask that fits properly is crucial to keeping you committed and comfortable. Here are some tips to follow:

No 1
Use the smallest size mask that fits without pinching.
No 2
A tight fit is not necessary. Try loosening the mask if there are leaks.
No 3
Headgear should be secure but not too tight. If your mask has a forehead arm or adjustment feature, adjust that first. Adjust straps to minimize air leaks.
No 4
The cushion should not be crushed against your face.
No 5
Don’t block the exhalation port between the mask and the connecting tubing. Position the port away from your bed partner.
No 6
The mask should be fitted while you are in a sleeping position and with air blowing at the prescribed pressure.
No 7
Mark the headgear straps with permanent marker to remember where they should be fastened.
No 8
Remove the mask by pulling it over your head or use the quick-release clip.
No 9
Consider looping the tubing over the headboard to reduce the pull on the mask.
No 10
If your mask was fitted with your dentures in, your mask may not fit properly without them.
