Choosing the Right Pediatric CPAP Mask
Sleep apnea is a disorder that can affect people of all ages. Up to 3% of children under age 8 have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and factors such as obesity, parents smoking, and large tonsils can increase the risk. Symptoms in this age range vary greatly, from trouble paying attention in class to nighttime bedwetting, making it hard to diagnose. For those who have been diagnosed, CPAP machine therapy for kids can be effective. However, since children's faces are much smaller than those of adults, they will need a smaller CPAP mask.
If you need a children's face mask for CPAP machines, RespShop.com has them available from respected sleep therapy brands such as Philips, Pixi, and Mirage. We carry kids' CPAP nasal masks with headgears for use by children as young as age 2. These small and lightweight masks are designed for comfort and safety, often using softer materials to prevent harming a child's delicate skin. Features such as quick release latches, large clips, flexible tubing, and leak correction mechanisms allow children, adults and caregivers alike to handle the masks. Check out individual masks for more on sizing, parts, instructions for use, and other information to help you pick the right mask.
Many children are uncomfortable having full face masks covering their face. Nasal CPAP masks counter this issue. These petite masks from RespShop.com can give your child CPAP therapy without the bulk and leakage that comes with trying to use a full face mask. With nasal masks, children can also wear them while reading in bed or using their tablet before sleeping. As with all of our 1,300 sleep therapy products, you can count on a low price with fast shipping to get your mask on your doorstep as soon as possible.
