What should I do if I am having trouble fitting my cpap mask?

Your cpap mask is one of the most important aspects of your CPAP therapy. If you are having any issue with the fit of your mask, please submit a support request so our staff can contact you to help resolve the issue.

If you are a new CPAP user, remember that you should fit your mask just snugly enough to prevent leaks in all sleep positions. Mask fitting takes practice. Over-tightening the straps can cause or worsen a leak. Try readjusting the position of your mask before tightening the straps – gently pull the mask away from your face with the CPAP on, then resettle it until you find the right position. If that does not work, try adjusting the straps.

If you’ve have had your mask for some time and it has just recently become difficult to fit, it may need to be replaced.

Nasal Pillows Mask Stability

Is there a way to keep my nasal pillows mask more secure?

A nasal pillows mask can tend to be unstable, but many people like the comfort and minimal design of nasal pillows masks. If you like your mask, the first thing to do is to replace the cushions, and headgear — maybe even the whole mask. They may not appear to be worn, but on average nasal pillows mask cushions may need to be replaced as often as once per month in order to maintain optimal performance. Remember that there are many models and styles of masks. You may want to try a few different styles to see what’s best for you.

CPAP therapy has some maintenance and equipment replacement but it’s much less intensive than the therapies for diabetes and other common diseases. CPAP therapy is also a natural therapy that doesn’t involve drugs and multiple side effects. Be patient, as time goes by this therapy gets easier and has a very positive effect on many aspects of your health.
