CPAP and BiPAP: What’s the Difference?

Positive airway pressure (PAP) has long been the medical community’s gold- standard for chronic obstructive sleep apnea treatment. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is by far the most common prescription, but bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP) may be the better choice for some. The difference between the two lies in how each machine administers therapy, with CPAP machines delivering continuous air pressure and BiPAP machines delivering variable pressures, with less pressure experienced during exhalation. Simply put, BiPAP therapy makes breathing out easier, which can make it the preferred apnea treatment for patients with medical conditions who expend a lot of energy breathing such as those with COPD.

Regardless of whether your medical professional has prescribed CPAP or BiPAP therapy for you, both machines use the same masks, hoses, and other accessories. CPAP masks are technically BiPAP masks as well, since they are designed to work with most standard equipment. To learn more about the differences between CPAP and BiPAP therapy, visit us at our Birmingham store or online today. As a durable medical equipment provider, we are committed to ensuring you achieve the best possible treatment outcomes so that you can get back to living your best life.

CPAP and BiPAP Masks to Match Your Rx and Your Lifestyle

To be sure, the most important consideration when selecting a CPAP or BiPAP mask is your specific pressure prescription from your medical doctor. The pressure prescribed will dictate to a certain extent which mask type will be the most appropriate for you to use. For example, apnea patients who require high levels of air pressure are more likely need a full face mask that covers both the nose and mouth to add a larger, more secure seal and prevent leaks.

While the prescription from your medical professional plays a role in which type of mask is best for you, it’s not the only factor to consider. Your lifestyle, comfort level, and other personal preferences will also come into play when making your decision. Maybe you’re an active sleeper who tosses and turns throughout the night. In that case, you may prefer a mask that accommodates the way you move Alternatively, if you have claustrophobic tendencies or experience anxiety when wearing a mask, you may prefer an open design that doesn’t cover as much of your face.

At OxyMed, we take into account your sleep position, facial structure, personal preferences, and other important factors in addition to your prescribed pressure to help you choose the right CPAP or BiPAP mask for you. With so many different types of masks on the market today—including nasal masks, full face masks, nasal pillows and more—the options may seem overwhelming at first. But our experienced staff will help you sort through all your choices and find the perfect match for your individual needs.

We carry all major brands of CPAP and BiPAP masks, including ResMed, Philips Respironics, and Fisher, and with our extensive inventory of oxygen-related equipment and replacement parts, the price you’re looking for is always within reach. Stop by our store or browse our online selection to find the perfect CPAP or BiPAP mask for you.

Nasal Pillow Masks

Nasal pillow masks rest just below the base of your nose and deliver air directly to your nostrils through two soft, flexible pillows. Because they don’t cover the mouth or nose, they add more freedom of movement and are less likely to cause claustrophobia. They’re also smaller and lighter than other types of masks and can be a good choice for patients with facial hair, glasses, or dentures.

Held in place with a headgear that goes around the back of your head, nasal pillow masks are available in either adjustable or fixed types. The adjustable type allows you to make small adjustments as needed so that your mask remains stable throughout the night and doesn’t restrict movement or add unnecessary discomfort. The lightweight design creates fewer points of contact on the face for increased

comfort; however, nasal pillow masks generally work best for patients who require low to moderate air pressure settings. As such, if you require high pressure, a nasal
pillow mask may not be the option for you.

At OxyMed, our selection of nasal pillow masks includes top brands like ResMed, Fisher & Paykel, and Philips Respironics for easy comparison of features, price, and
options. And to ensure that you always receive high-quality medical equipment at an affordable price, we’re proud to offer a wide range of parts and accessories both in store and online.

Nasal Masks

The most popular mask choice for CPAP and BiPAP therapy, nasal masks feature a triangular-shaped silicone or gel cushion that covers the base of your nose and delivers air directly to your nostrils. Nasal masks offer a good balance of features found in full face and nasal pillow masks as they can accommodate higher air
pressure than nasal pillows but add more comfort for side and stomach sleepers than a full face option.

Relatively small and unobtrusive, nasal masks are often the ideal choice for patients who are new to sleep therapy as they offer a good seal without being too bulky. The headgear is adjustable so that you can find the perfect fit, and many nasal masks feature an exhalation port which helps to reduce noise and dryness. One of the main drawbacks, however, is that nasal masks can be uncomfortable for some patients, particularly those with claustrophobia. Add to that if you move around a lot during the night, you may find that your mask comes loose and needs to be readjusted.

options. And to ensure that you always receive high-quality medical equipment at an affordable price, we’re proud to offer a wide range of parts and accessories both in store and online.

Full Face Masks

As the name suggests, full face masks cover both the nose and the mouth and are traditionally the largest type of CPAP or BiPAP mask. A well-fitted full face mask creates a secure seal as it covers both airways from the bridge of the nose to just below the lower lip. Full face masks are the conventional option for patients who require high pressure, as well as those who tend to breathe through their mouths.

The coverage of a full face mask also makes it the ideal pick for chronic allergy sufferers or those with nasal obstructions. They can additionally be a good choice for back sleepers as well as for those who move around a lot during the night since they provide a secure seal that won’t break easily. Headgear for a full face mask is generally less adjustable than for other types of masks; however, the lightweight design and rigid frame mean it stays in place throughout the night without it pressing against your face.

While full face masks provide an effective seal and deliver air efficiently, they’re not without their drawbacks. Because they cover such a large area of the face, some patients find them bulky and cumbersome to wear. Additionally, if not sealed properly, full face masks can cause leakage around the edges which can be disruptive and noisy.

There have been many improvements in the field of full face mask design in recent years, with a focus on increased comfort and field of vision. At OxyMed, we carry the latest models of full face options from all major brands at competitive price points, and our expert staff will help you find the perfect fit for your medical needs and preferences. Shop our selection today to start enjoying the benefits of uninterrupted sleep therapy.

Hybrid Masks

Hybrid CPAP or BiPAP masks combine the benefits of a nasal pillow with an oral mask, sealing over the mouth and under the nose. If you are struggling with your CPAP or BiPAP mask, consider trying a hybrid to get the best of both worlds. With its combination nasal pillow and oral mask features, a hybrid mask offers an effective seal without the added bulk or discomfort to your nostrils. The oral component consists of a small cushion that rests over your mouth and is held in place with headgear straps. One of the main advantages of hybrid masks is that they offer a wide field of vision for reading or watching television before bed.

While hybrid masks are smaller and more comfortable than full face models, they may not be suitable for everyone. If you have a very narrow face, you may find that the oral component does not fit snugly enough, resulting in leaks. Also, it may be more difficult to move your mouth while wearing a hybrid mask, which can make it more difficult to talk or eat in the morning.

We offer a large range of hybrid masks from all the top manufacturers like Fisher & Paykel, ResMed, and Philips Respironics at affordable price points, so you can start
enjoying the advantages of uninterrupted sleep therapy right away. Now is the time to discover the mask that works best for your apnea treatment.

CPAP and BiPAP Masks: When and How to Resupply

Your CPAP equipment is an important investment in your health. Proper care and maintenance ensure its optimal function and can add years to its life expectancy. Part of this essential routine is the regular replacement of your CPAP or BiPAP mask and other supplies as recommended by the manufacturer. The good news is that Medicare as well as most private insurance companies will cover scheduled replacement for all CPAP and BiPAP equipment and related medical supplies, including masks.

At OxyMed, we are committed to helping you achieve the best results from your sleep apnea treatment.

Masks

Full face mask frames should be replaced every 3-6 months, while nasal and pillow masks can last up to 18 months with proper care. If you notice that your mask is not fitting as well as it used to or is causing leaks, it may be time for a replacement. Additionally, if you see any visible signs of cracking, tearing or excessive wear and tear, it’s time to replace your mask.

If you’re unsure about whether or not it’s time for a new mask, our team of experts can help. We offer expert guidance and support, as well as convenient in-store and online shopping with fast shipping on all orders. Feel confident that your CPAP of BiPAP mask is up to the task and begin breathing easy with OxyMed.

Mask Cushions

The most direct connection between you and your sleep apnea treatment, the mask cushion is a small but integral piece of CPAP equipment. Designed to ensure an adequate seal, minimize leaks, and add extra comfort, cushions are soft inserts that fit inside the frame of your full face or nasal mask. They can be made from silicone, gel or foam depending on the mask design and manufacturer.

Routine cleaning of your mask cushion can help prevent premature breakdown and decrease exposure to contaminants such as bacteria and mold, but continued use beyond the manufacturer’s replacement guidance may compromise your seal and negatively impact your sleep therapy. Generally, mask cushions should be replaced monthly.

If you can’t remember the last time you replaced your mask cushion or suspect it may be time, look for obvious signs of wear and tear such as cracks, tears, or permanent misshaping. Add to that, if you are experiencing leaks or have difficulty achieving a proper seal, it’s likely time to replace your mask cushion. Find the mask cushion selection of your dreams at OxyMed and breathe a little more comfortably. Visit our Birmingham location at 5025 US Highway 280 or convenient online store to add replacement cushions to your cart and sleep well knowing you have what you need.

Nasal Pillows

Nasal pillows are soft inserts used in conjunction with a nasal pillow mask. These cone-shaped pillows direct air flow into your nostrils and are generally made of silicone or gel. Nasal pillows typically require replacement every 3-6 months, although your specific needs may vary.

If you are experiencing leaks or have difficulty forming a seal with your nasal pillow mask, replacing the nasal pillows can help to improve performance. Also, if you notice that the pillow is cracked or has shrunk significantly in size, it may be time for you to add a new set to the cart. At OxyMed we are committed to helping you breathe easy and access all the medical supplies you need to succeed with your sleep apnea treatment. Find the right nasal pillows for you today in our online shop and add them to your resupply cart to get back to breathing evenly and sleeping well.

Mask Headgear

Headgear consists of the straps or bands that are used to secure your CPAP or BiPAP mask to your face. Headgear as well as chinstraps should be replaced every 6-12 months, although it is important to note that some designs may need replacement more frequently than others.

If you notice damage to your mask headgear such as tears or cracks it’s likely time to add a new set to the cart. Additionally, if your headgear has stretched out significantly in size, you may want to consider replacing it. Don’t underestimate the significance of comfortable and well-fitting headgear. Headgear that is too loose can cause leaks, while headgear that is too tight may be uncomfortable or cause skin irritation.

OxyMed is proud to offer a wide selection of replacement CPAP and BiPAP mask headgear for all of the most popular brands on the market. Find your perfect fit today.

CPAP/BiPAP Filters

Regular replacement of your CPAP filter can have significantly positive effects on the quality of your apnea treatment and the overall health of your lungs. CPAP filters are responsible for trapping impurities from the air before it is directed into your body, and if they are not replaced regularly, they can become clogged with contaminants and jeopardize the quality of your sleep therapy.

There are two types of CPAP filters—disposable and reusable. Disposable filters are designed to be used for a single treatment session and then discarded, while reusable filters can be rinsed and reused multiple times before needing to be replaced. Depending on the type of filter you have, you may need to replace a reusable filter anywhere from every 2-6 months.

At OxyMed, we carry replacement filters in a variety of sizes, types, and price points to fit your particular needs. Whether you need an inline filter for a portable CPAP machine or a BiPAP mask filter for advanced treatment options, we have the perfect option for you. Visit our Birmingham location or add a filter to your online shopping cart to keep your machine running its best.

cPAP/biPAP tubing

The tubing that connects your CPAP equipment may look simple, but its role in your apnea treatment is quite important. Your tubing serves as a conduit for air flow from the machine to you and back again, and if it’s damaged or dirty, it can compromise your treatment quality.

Whether you use heated or standard CPAP machine tubing, it’s important to replace it every three months, although some designs may require replacement more frequently than others. Barring replacement, tubing breaks down, allowing tiny holes and cracks to form, which give passageway for contaminants and bacteria to enter your system. Tube condensation is another potential issue that may arise from worn out tubing, and if not addressed can add to the risk of serious health complications.

OxyMed offers replacement CPAP and BiPAP tubing in heated or standard varieties for all the most popular models on the market. Find yours today at our Birmingham location or our convenient online store where you can simply add the tubing you need to your cart when you’re ready to resupply.

machine replacement

The longevity of your CPAP or BiPAP machine is dependent on several factors, including how often it is used and general maintenance routines. While sleep technology has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time, general replacement guidelines suggest 3-5 years as the average lifespan of a CPAP or BiPAP machine. It’s important to consult with your medical professional if you think your machine may be nearing the end of its usefulness, as a replacement may be necessary to maintain optimal treatment quality.

At OxyMed, we offer a wide variety of CPAP and BiPAP machines from the leading manufacturers in the industry like Fisher & Paykel, Philips Respironics, and ResMed. Whether you need a new machine or just replacement parts, we have what you need at a variety of price points to keep your equipment up to the task of keeping you healthy.

Don’t Let Your Mask Make You Quit Your Therapy

The importance of a good mask to your overall sleep therapy cannot be overstated—a mask that is too loose can cause leaks, while one that is too tight may be uncomfortable and cause skin irritation. Either of those scenarios can be enough to discourage you from using or even beginning your prescribed medical therapy, which is why it’s so important to find the right mask as well as be able to troubleshoot some common issues that may arise.

If your CPAP of BiPAP mask is leaking, check the seals and make sure they are free of any wrinkles or creases. You may also need to adjust the headgear to get a better fit. If your mask is too tight or too loose, you may need to adjust the straps. Make sure the straps are not twisted and be careful not to make them too tight as this can add unnecessary discomfort. If you are having difficulty breathing through your mask, check the air filter and make sure it’s clean. You may also need to adjust the airflow setting on your CPAP machine.

Following these tips should help you keep your CPAP or BiPAP mask in good working order. However, if you continue to have problems, it’s best to consult with your medical doctor or a sleep specialist. At OxyMed, we understand that every user’s experience is different, which is why we have something for everyone, regardless of their individual needs or preferences. Whether you’re a new patient looking to start therapy or an experienced user looking to upgrade your parts or medical equipment, look no further than OxyMed and trust us for all your sleep apnea needs.
