How To Select A CPAP Mask
Selecting a new mask is challenging and very subjective. Unfortunately, it's difficult to provide definitive recommendations. As you know, each person has different facial features and fit and comfort is different for everyone. What works for someone else may not work for you. Your best bet is to do your own research. Read reviews and visit a local CPAP store. If available, feel, touch, try on, for comfort and fit. If this is not an option, I would recommend you ordering something that is packaged as a 'fitpack' which comes with all size cushions for a higher chance of something fitting you. Learn more on what a fitpack is here. Research is key. Keep in mind if a mask is open, it cannot be returned. If you are unsure, please visit a local CPAP store in your area.

To increase your chances of a mask fitting, select CPAP masks that are labelled fitpacks. Some masks are purposely packaged as a fitpack. This means the mask is packaged with with various size cushions. For example, a mask can come with small, medium and large cushions or small and medium cushions. This variety ensures new CPAP users can find a good fit when trying a mask for the first time. Due to packaging, we cannot accommodate requests of giving multiple of the preferred or same size per one mask.
