Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) masks and headgear come in many styles and sizes to comfortably treat your sleep apnea. Everyone has different needs, preferences and face shapes, and sometimes you will need to try different mask styles before you find the one that works the best for you.
Sizes may vary across different mask styles and brands. You may need to try on several styles and sizes to find the best combination of comfort and efficiency.
For example, if you take a small in one type it does not necessarily mean you will need a small in a different brand. Proper sizing is very important to comfort and performance of masks.
Here's a look at a few CPAP mask styles and some possible benefits of each. Work with your doctor and CPAP mask supplier to make sure you have a mask that suits your needs and fits you properly.
