Nasal CPAP masks are considered the “standard” design for CPAP masks. They cover only the nose when put on properly. Typically this is the first style of mask that is attempted on new patients with sleep disordered breathing. Below are several reviews of Nasal CPAP Masks. There are many of these designs available so I limit my reviews to major manufacturer designs. My personal favorite mask had been the ResMed Mirage Vista. It is a very well thought out and well designed mask. A mask that has recently improved on the design is the Swift FX Nano. So my long time love “Vista” has been shunned for another mask….the Swift FX Nano.
Heated humidification is recommended for all nasal CPAP masks to prevent mouth-leaking. Keep in mind that heated humidifiers simply make the air you’re breathing moist so that your nasal mucosa (sinus lining) doesn’t become dry and inflamed, thus blocking the nasal passage.
-Easy to fit
-More difficult to dislodge while sleeping
-Wide selection available
-Possibility of mouth-leaking (dry mouth?)
-Sometimes too many to choose from.
