Best Masks for Side Sleepers
As a side sleeper, you are in a unique position with your CPAP equipment. The best mask types for side sleepers are nasal and nasal pillow masks as they cover a smaller surface area of your face, allowing for more movement. If these two masks don't work for you, there are more options to consider for your comfort!
Full Face Masks for Side Sleepers
If you are a side sleeper and mouth breather, but the nasal or nasal pillow option with a chinstrap doesn't work for you, consider the Philips DreamWear Full Face Mask or the AirFit F30i Full Face Mask with Headgear by ResMed .These full face masks with a "top of the head" tube connection have a unique design, allowing for more freedom of movement and comfort.
"Top of the Head" Tubing Connection
Additionally, ApriaDirect offers a variety of nasal and nasal pillow masks with a "top of the head" tubing connection. These masks will keep tubing away from the face and body. Perfect for side and stomach sleepers!
To make sure your CPAP tubing is completely out of the way while you sleep, consider a positional pillow. The CPAPMax Bed Pillow 2.0 by Contour helps to reduce mask leaks and pressure by helping you find a comfortable position to sleep all night. The larger cut-outs on either side will allow you to sleep on either side of the pillow
