How To Buy A CPAP Mask - What's My Size?

Example of a nasal interface CPAP maskIf this is your first CPAP mask, we suggest purchasing a mask that includes multiple sizes. You can then experiment with the sizes to determine your best fit. We offer a whole category of COMBO PACKS that includes masks with multiple size cushions in the package. When replacing parts or getting a new mask in time, you will know your size for that particular mask and can buy the exact size. Also, sizing guides are available on most CPAP masks product pages, in PDF format. The sizing guides can be downloaded, printed, and used as an estimate of your size.

If you already have a CPAP mask, you can normally find the size of the current mask on the bottom of the cushion. Some descriptor should be present on the cushion to notate size such as a letter or a part number.

We also can try to determine your size over the phone. We will ask about your facial charateristics, your physical characteristics, and your bedtime routine and sleep habits. Some masks are better for those patients who like to read in bed while adjusting to the ramp pressure of the machine, some are better for wider noses, some are better for side sleepers or stomach sleepers. We are here to guide you through that process and can usually determine the best fit for you. Call us at 1-888-494-4647 to speak to a customer care representative, 9am-5pm Eastern.
