DreamWear CPAP Mask: Sleep Apnea Mask Review

The Philips Respironics DreamWear CPAP mask is designed differently than other CPAP masks to help you get to sleep comfortably.

CPAP machines, the most popular treatment for sleep apnea, are meant to keep air flowing through your airway to help you sleep. Consisting of the machine, hose, and mask, these devices can often feel bulky and get in the way of your comfort while trying to sleep.

Most CPAP masks are designed to fit over your nose or over both your nose and mouth. These masks are secured with straps that fit around the top of your head and also the side of your face, with a tube connecting the mask to the machine.

The tubing that comes out from the mask can often get in the way of comfort, especially for side or stomach sleepers, making it difficult to get into a comfortable sleep position.

How the DreamWear CPAP Mask is Different

Philips Respironics has come up with a new design for CPAP masks that keep the bulky tubing away from your face and the mask from covering your nose.

The DreamWear CPAP mask sits under your nose, while most CPAP masks rest on top of it. It’s cushioned for comfort and because it’s under your nose and not on top of it, it doesn’t cause irritation on the bridge of your nose like many other masks. It’s available in three different types of masks; nasal, full-face, and nasal pillows.

The DreamWear CPAP mask is not only set apart from the others because of its mask design.

The tubing, which usually comes directly out from the mask with other devices, sits on the top of the head, keeping it out of your way. Air quietly flows through the frame of the mask that sits on both sides of your face, and then into the tubing.

 

Since less of your face is covered with this mask, you can comfortably wear glasses to read or watch T.V.

The Dreamwear also comes is a full-face mask option that covers the nose and mouth. This may be helpful for individuals who prefer to breathe through the mouth or like the options of nasal or oral breathing. It comes as an adaptor module to the standard maks.

DreamWear CPAP Mask Reviews from Others

Many reviews for the DreamWear CPAP mask stated that it’s the perfect mask for someone who is not only a back sleeper. This set up is comfortable for any sleep position, even if you move around a lot throughout the night.

Many reviews also mentioned that it’s comfortable because you don’t need to worry about the tubing and that it’s like you’re not even wearing a CPAP mask at all. Also, not only is it comfortable, it keeps a good seal.

Some reviewers stated that it’s a good mask to alleviate any irritation around your nose and upper lip area.

It was also mentioned that the cost for the mask is a bit higher than some other masks out there, but the comfort is well worth the money.

The DreamWear CPAP Mask Works with All CPAP Machines

If you’re considering trying out the DreamWear CPAP masks, you should know that it works with any CPAP machine that uses standard CPAP tubing, without having to purchase an adaptor or extra pieces. It works with either CPAP or BiPAP.

Getting the correct size should be no problem, either. The frame and mask come in different sizes, so you’re able to get the sizes you need for each piece. Talk to your CPAP supplies professional about getting the CPAP mask size that works for you.

    I tried this mask and yes it is lightweight on the face and the tube is out of the way.

    However I find that there is a leak at the top connection. This makes the mask noisy so much so that I had to stop using it as breathing becomes too noisy. One of my highest AHI when using this mask!

    I also agree with the comments of Kerry and Dianne (8 July) comments

    Feel that I’m not getting deep sleep with this mask versus former mask. Air pressure must be low as noted by user above when sleeping on sides. Not enough oxygen flow; kind of dangerous? Going back to my other mask

    CPAP masks are very personal. The Philips Dreamwear nasal pillow mask is the worst mask on the planet for me! It is loud and uncomfortable. I take it off in my sleep so only get 30 – 60 minutes on average per night. I am totally sleep deprived and exhausted. It may work for some but I would give it a 0 out of 10. I am going back to the Airfit P10 nasal pillow mask.

    It is a very comfortable mask but those stupid magnetic ends that connect to the mask are garbage. I’m sure that for the price you charge there is a better design you could come up with.

    I just got my dream wear nasal pillow and I am very disappointed. The noise level would not let me sleep! I finally sleep poorly and woke up and could not go back to sleep. Did anyone try this out? I tried your other gel pillow which was quiet. I changed because it hurt to much in the morning.I have a small head size and have a hard time getting a good fit.

    This mask has changed my life! Was wearing a Quattro full face but Dreamwear is the best! Thanks Respironics!!

    Medical grade soft Silicon not rubber and Uber comfy. No seams and No odor. Fits great.

    I do not like this product. The rubber that goes on the fact sticks to the skin and there is a seam down both sides when it was made that irritates. There should be cloth on the face instead of rubber.

    Yes, the ‘headgear’ as they call the stretchy straps that go around your head and hold the mask to your face are not very good; they stretch out and tend to slide up the hair on the back of my head.

    But I wanted to say that the DreamWear masks I received in June 2019 and again recently came with soft, felt-like sleeves (maybe 3″ long) to slide over the tubes. Cutting the fingers off gloves is impressively resourceful though!

    I have used this mask and find the side strap attachments not as good as the ResMed F20 full face mask. Additionally it feel as if when sleeping on my side the air is restricted through the tubes on the headset. Have tried different positions and the pressure is always reduced when laying on my side. I have stopped using this mask since I feel is not providing the correct pressure.

    There are cloth or paper liners available to use under the mask I found several different ones online.

    My brother in law cut fingers off of gloves and slid over the areas of mask that irritated his skin

    i also have a reaction to the material on the sides of the mask, i use Colloidal Silver cream and it clears up immediately. i have found that if i put some on prior to putting the mask on, i don’t get the problem. Silver is the best cure for anything and this stuff is the stuff I swear by. Not so much the liquid though.
    Triple Strength Silver-MSM Cream 60 ml this is the stuff i use and get from Amazon. i hope it helps!
