How does it work?
When CPAP is applied, air is pumped through a mask into your upper airway acting as a splint to hold your airway open so that you can breathe normally. This prevents the upper airway from collapsing and thus prevents apnoeic events and snoring.
CPAP masks come in all shapes and sizes, just like every individual’s personal preference. However, there are typically four different variations of sleep apnea masks to choose from: nasal pillow, nasal, full face CPAP masks, and oral masks.
