Obstructive Sleep Apnea Mask Tips For Better Sleep

Posted on July 09 2015

tips to help with cpap / bipap mask sleep
Using a CPAP / BIPAP mask for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treatment can be difficult, frustrating and annoying… to say the least.
So what can you do to improve mask comfort and get a good night’s sleep whilst also being treated for OSA?
We have put together some tips from existing CPAP/ BIPAP users:
never give up cpap therapy
#1 Never give up – keep persisting.
#2 If in doubt refer to #1.
#3 If you are having a hard time getting started wear your mask without the hose before you are ready to go to bed. This will help you get used to the feeling of the mask.
#4 Try to have a good relationship with sleep clinic medical providers or wherever you get your equipment, I know it’s not always possible but if you have one person who knows what they are talking about it can help you get the right mask / machine for you…

#5 … And on that note. No one mask fits all. There are hundreds of different masks on the market offering a wide range of different features. Read reviews of what works for people but keep in mind that people have differently shaped faces and so one mask doesn’t fit all.
#6 There are many machine / hose accessories available to make using your mask more comfortable including; mask liners, hose protectors to stop condensation and rainout within the hose and CPAP pillows.

#7 Join CPAP / OSA / BIPAP forums and online communities. There is a wealth of knowledge online and really helpful and knowledgeable CPAP / BIPAP users who can answer any issues / questions you may have as well as just having someone to chat to.

#8 Download a program to keep track of your progress, there are many online available for free download that can be used on your computer.
#9 Never forget why you are using your machine in the first place. The medical problems when using your machine are less sexy than the mask itself.
