The most common method for applying the pressure to the airway is with a soft mask shaped to fit over the nose and seal against the face. A comfortably fitting mask is the most important part of your CPAP therapy. A comfortable mask ensures effective treatment.
If you have trouble adapting to your first mask, there are many shapes and styles to choose from. Other devices are sometimes used, including direct seal nasal masks which seal inside the nostrils or full-face masks which fit over the mouth and nose.
Your RANA sleep clinician will ensure you are fitted with the best mask for your face to ensure effective CPAP treatment.
