A CPAP mask fits over your nose and delivers a steady stream of air all night long, minimizing or eliminating snoring and other sleep apnea symptoms. With a steady supply of oxygen, you sleep better, wake more rested, and experience less daytime sleepiness.
The CPAP machine feeds you a continuous stream of positive air pressure. The air travels from the breathing machine, through a flexible tube, and into a sleep mask held in place with headgear.
CPAP masks come in different styles, and it's important that your sleep mask fit you properly for your CPAP sleep apnea therapy to be effective. Without a good seal, the CPAP machine's pressurized air could end up in your bedroom, not your lungs.
