The Differences Between The Nasal Pillow, Nasal & Full Face Masks
Seal around the Nostril Base
Preferred by over 28% of users, nasal pillow masks add the least amount of weight and material on a user face. This mask is generally the best option if you have facial hair, get claustrophobic easily or like reading and watching TV before bed.
Seal around or under the Nose
Preferred by over 45% of users, nasal masks are best for users who breathe through their nose, like to read or watch TV before bed, are active sleepers, and have a wide range of pressure settings on their machine. A chinstrap can also be used to when using a nasal mask to keep the mouth from opening while asleep.
Seal around the Nose & Mouth
Preferred by over 26% of users, full face masks are great not only for users who breathe through their mouth when sleeping but these masks also give relief to users who suffer from allergies and congestion. This mask, like the nasal mask, is held in place by four point headgear.
