At EzCPAP, we understand just how frustrating it can be to find a mask that works and is comfortable. It is the most difficult part of adapting to therapy, and unfortunately many CPAP equipment companies do not offer a choice. Many patients are stuck with the first mask that was used on them in their sleep study. Sadly, sleep study techs are notorious for using the same mask for every single patient regardless of facial structure or preference. What’s worse is that a lot of techs use the same mask that they liked when they first entered the field instead of upgrading as technology has improved. Some facial structures just do not work with certain masks and it can make the overall experience of sleep with CPAP therapy even more difficult than it already is. We recently had a patient tell us she was waking up with very “dry eyes.” We had her come to the store and this very petite lady had been given a size large mask that not only covered her nose but also her eyes. We have seen this and other similar situations happen way too often. We have done this for long enough that we typically can look at your face and immediately tell if you have a good seal with your mask. To help you find the right mask for you we offer free, personalized mask fitting sessions where you can try on every mask made with your current CPAP/BiPAP pressure setting. Our experienced professionals, many of whom use CPAP themselves, will work with you to find the perfect fit with your preferences. If you’re not in the Phoenix area, give us a call and we usually can offer you some guidance to masks that we have found work better than others.
We have a large selection of masks in our lobby for you to acquaint yourself with before purchasing one. Feel free to come in and take a look around to see the different kinds of masks available.
If you are interested in having a mask fitting, please call ahead and schedule an appointment. We want to ensure that we have as much time available as you need. 480-614-5281
