Sleep apnea patients can choose from a wide range of sleep masks.
Some masks cover most or all of the face; these models often include a chinstrap to keep the mouth closed, which helps prevent irregular breathing and heavy snoring. Other, less invasive mask types cover less area and do not include a chinstrap; although these masks often provide effective CPAP therapy, many sleepers struggle with snoring and breathing problems because their mouths won’t remain closed.
For this reason, a CPAP chinstrap – usually sold separately from the mask – is a good investment for people with sleep apnea. These chinstraps are interchangeable with different mask types, and may also be used for other types of PAP therapy, such as bi-level PAP (BiPAP) or automatic PAP (APAP).
