ResMed Mirage Activa™ Nasal Mask - 5 stars
"I have tried a lot of masks and this one beats them all. It almost fits perfectly right out of the box. I move around a lot at night and this mask stays in place perfectly. There are no constant adjustments to stop leaks." - Dan
"I have to say this is the best mask I have ever used. I have very bad sleep apnea and the air pressure I have to have is 14. So finding a mask that will not leak is hard to find. I was having to tighten the straps so much before to try and prevent leaks that my face ... [More]

As CPAP therapy has become more and more common, we've seen the industry explode with products designed to increase your comfort while your sleep with your CPAP machine. While navigating all the new product options can sometimes before confusing for users who've had CPAP machines for years, we feel that these new options are a good thing for all users. Now, instead of just handing you a bulky mask and noisy machine and telling you to "get used to it", CPAP providers are hoping to offer solutions, smaller masks, and more efficient machines to make CPAP therapy a much more bearable experience.
One of the first comfort accessories available, the CPAP pillow was debuted on the market over four years ago. Designed to answer the complaints of side-sleeping CPAP users who couldn't make their traditional pillow fit correctly around their mask, CPAP pillows generally offer cut-outs or indentations on each side to allow you room to settle your mask comfortably.

CPAP therapy has a language all its own, and you might hear us toss around terms or acronyms that mean absolutely nothing to you, a new CPAP user. Please excuse us in advance - some terms and concepts that are so natural to us might not help you at all understand your therapy or choose a CPAP set-up.
Here we've tried to compile a list of some of the most common CPAP terms used and their meanings. Hopefully, this will get you started in your research about CPAP... sometimes it's just a matter of knowing the right word or acronym to find the information you need!

BiPAP or Bi-Level - Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure. This technology is a more sophisticated form of PAP therapy that delivers two different pressures - one on inhalation (a higher... [More]
Whether your doctor suspects some form of sleep disorder, or you’ve had a diagnosis for years, chances are you will be required at some point to undergo a full sleep study (known clinically as a polysomnogram) to either diagnosis or reevaluate your current sleep problems. Though the test itself will probably not be the most comfortable or relaxing night’s sleep you’ve ever had, your sleep study does not have to be a dreaded experience. Educating yourself about your experience and preparing for the possible experiences you might have will go a long way in calming your nerves for your next sleep study. Below are a few things to expect or remember for your first (or follow-up) polysomnogram:
1) Sleep Studies Have Many Purposes – Seasoned CPAP users may not feel they need a sleep study to continue their treatment, and undiagnosed individuals may not believe there is actually anything wrong, but regardless of your feelings about the study, remember this – a sle... [More]
