What is the best full-face CPAP mask?

Sleep apnea treatment Jan, 23 2024

Three key features that may help you decide

Selecting the right mask is important to the success of your obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) therapy.


A full-face mask sits over your nose and mouth, creating a seal and closed system so air can flow from the CPAP* device to the airways and vice versa. This mask also needs to be comfortable so you can sleep when higher pressures are applied throughout the night. 

Some therapy users may find full-face masks too obtrusive, particularly for watching TV and reading or sleeping on their sides.  

Your mask choice comes down to your personal needs and preferences, but in selecting a full-face mask, there are several features you should look for to help you make your choice, including:  


Minimalistic design: If you want a full-face mask that is compact, ensure it is also secure.  

Effective seal: The mask should be able to dynamically adjust with your movement and feel comfortable.  

Adjustable headgear: Look for flexible and cooling material.  


There are advantages to full-face masks. The secure fit and seal makes this a suitable mask choice for mouth breathers and people who tend to move around a lot in their sleep.  

Full-face masks can also help prevent you from getting a dry mouth or experiencing excessive air leak when high pressures are applied throughout the night.2
