Sizing and Assembly
Wearing and Adjusting
Nasal pillows rest directly inside your nose all night long. This means that dirty nasal pillows can cause a nasty infection. In order to avoid hygienic issues and improper mask usage, you should replace your DreamWear Gel Nasal Pillows, which can be purchased HERE, every two weeks.
CPAP mask tubing is susceptible to developing small holes or tears which may not even be visible to the naked eye. These can cause air leaks, and if your tube is leaking, you may not be receiving your prescribed therapy setting from your CPAP. This may cause you to feel as if your sleep therapy is not working as intended, even though it is. Therefore, you should replace your tubing (Check out some tubing offered by ApriaDirect HERE) once every three months.
Your frame system is in close proximity to your face, and therefore needs to be replaced relatively frequently. However, it is not directly touching your face, which is why it doesn't need to be replaced quite so often. We sell the DreamWear Frame, which can be purchased HERE and works with all DreamWear masks. We also the DreamWear Gel Nasal Pillows Assembly Kit, which includes absolutely everything you need besides the headgear, and can be purchased HERE. The DreamWear Frame needs replacement every 3 months, so whether you want to buy the DreamWear Gel Nasal Pillows Assembly Kit or DreamWear Frame, it should be replaced once every three months.
Over time, your CPAP headgear and chin straps may become stretched and lose their elasticity, leading to over-tightening and discomfort. They can also trap bacteria from sweat and moisture. Therefore, your DreamWear Nasal and Nasal Pillow Headgear should be replaced every six months. To purchase, please click HERE.
