Finding the proper CPAP mask for treating your Sleep Disordered Breathing diagnosis can be compared with dating. There a quite a few masks out there and you may need to “date” several masks to find out what works for you. I have several masks that I have reviewed in an effort to help you not have so many blind dates.
Just like with dating, it is true that there are plenty of fish in the sea. However, many of those potential mates belong in their mother’s basement ,chained to the pipes, surrounded by pictures of whatever celebrity they have decided to stalk.
The same thing can be said of potential CPAP masks. There are plenty of absolute losers out there. It is my goal to help define what your needs are and educate you so that you can make a better decision about the style and brand of CPAP mask that you would like to use.
My opinions are based to my interactions with patients in several different settings. I have experience with home CPAP set-ups, night time sleep studies, home diagnostic tests, and in lab mask fittings. I have a very good idea of what works and what doesn’t from the viewpoint of a health care provider and the patients who use these products….YOU!!!
