Face and nasal masks for CPAP machines
The offer of the Medseven medical store includes a large selection of masks for CPAP devices. Face masks or nasal masks are definitely one of the most important parts of CPAP machines, so when you start treating obstructive sleep apnea or other types of respiratory failure, you should first choose the type and model of CPAP mask that suits you.
How does the CPAP mask work?
Masks for CPAP machines are designed to deliver air under the appropriate pressure to the patient. The mask is connected by a flexible tube with a device that acts as a pump that draws air from the environment. This air is then filtered and fed to the patient under necessary pressure. The exact route of air administration depends on the type of CPAP mask used for this purpose, i.e. how it is placed on the face. Regardless of the type of CPAP mask you choose, you should always pay attention to the fact that it is comfortable for the patient and that it does not hurt him anywhere, which guarantees a comfortable sleep.
Types of face masks for CPAP machines
There are two basic types of CPAP masks: face masks and nasal masks. They differ from each other in the method of air delivery and appearance.
Face masks (full face) for CPAP machines – covers nose and mouth. Their usage is recommended primarily to patients who breath through the open mouth as a result of obstruction of the free flow of air through the nose. When purchasing a face mask for your CPAP machine, for your convenience, pay attention to whether the hose connection is at the top of the head or near the face.
Nasal masks for CPAP machines – Nasal masks are much smaller and therefore may seem more comfortable to some patients, making it easier to use the entire device. We offer gel and silicone masks.
