How To Select A CPAP Mask
Selecting a new mask is challenging and very subjective. Unfortunately, it's difficult to provide definitive recommendations. Each person has unique facial features, as a result, fit and comfort is different for everyone. What works for someone may not work for you. Your best bet is to do your own research. Read reviews and visit a local CPAP store. If available, see and feel a demo, try on a demo for comfort and fit. If this is not an option, we 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. If you are unsure, please do more research. A open mask cannot be returned. Please visit a local CPAP store in your area for further assistance.
What Size CPAP Mask Do I Buy?
Most CPAP masks have sizing guides in their product description.
- Click on the mask you are interested in.
- Look under description tab.
- Print the size guide out and measure your face for guidance. Click here for an example.
To increase the chances of a mask fitting, absolutely use the sizing guide to help you find the correct size. You may also select CPAP masks that are labelled fitpacks. This means the mask is packaged with various size cushions. For example, a mask can come with small, medium and large cushions or small and medium cushions. This variety pack ensures new CPAP users 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.
