One way to manage your sleep apnea is by using a full face mask. Full face masks cover both the nose and mouth and are designed to provide a secure seal, allowing for uninterrupted oxygen flow as you sleep.
With so many options on the market, it’s important to understand which type is right for you.
Choosing the best cpap full face mask for sleep apnea can be challenging but it doesn’t have to be. There are broad ranges of sleep apnea masks available in the market for side sleepers.
We know the post says 4 best, but we have added a fifth and updated this post because it is too good to leave out.

It has a Rollfill seal on the cushion that is designed with pure comfort in mind. The roll seal does exactly what it’s name indicates.
It adjusts and moves on the nose but still keeps the seal. The Simplus Full Face Mask comes in 3 sizes and also can be adjusted on the headgear by using the velcro strips.
Many individuals have a problem with the thought or idea of having to wear a mask while they sleep.
Admittedly it is a big change in lifestyle having to put one on every night, but it isn’t the end of the world and things could be much worse.
