Masks for women? Read here. This article will review all the For Her masks, their unique qualities, individual pros and cons, and how they differ from other masks. By Patty – Certified Polysomnographic Technician.
Although sleep apnea is more common in men, women are certainly not immune. A woman's facial structure tends to differ from a man's. So, what might be a great CPAP mask for him isn't necessarily right for you. There are a few reasons the For Her series of CPAP masks may be the best choice for you.
- The first reason would be about the size of your head in general. Do you have a smaller head? “For (-smaller-) Heads!”
- The second reason would be the shape of your face. FH masks seal well to defined facial features.
- The third reason may be about your hair. Long hair or certain hairstyles can be accommodated by the FH series of masks by allowing for your hair to go over or under the headgear while still maintaining a good fit. A comfortable fit and a good seal are always the end goal for the best mask. The FH series adds more options to the choices available.

While sleep apnea was considered a "man's disease" for many years, it affects people of all genders in the U.S. More and more women are being diagnosed with sleep apnea yearly. The National Sleep Foundation estimates that 25 percent of women over the age of 65 have sleep apnea, with 14 percent of women at this age having a severe form. This disorder is just as dangerous for women and can lead to complications during pregnancy or menopause. While both genders can benefit from CPAP machine therapy, most CPAP masks are made with men in mind. Since women have different facial structures than men, masks made for women may fit better.
