Salter Labs Hybrid CPAP Mask - Full Face
It's true you can't please all the people all the time, but the Hybrid CPAP Full Face Mask from Salter Labs comes pretty close. This CPAP mask is designed for the treatment of respiratory insufficiencies such as obstructive sleep apnea. An innovative hybrid design allows this mask to function as a combination of serving as a nasal interface and oral. As the hybrid is a dual airway interface, it comes with three sizes of nasal pillows and oral cushions to ensure the right fit.
Emphasis on Comfort
CPAP users who experience painful pressure or sores with traditional nasal masks can rejoice: The Salter Labs Hybrid complete system CPAP mask is smartly constructed to eliminate contact with the bridge of the nose and eliminates pressure points.
The included headgear has five adjustable points, guaranteeing a custom fit. Chin support is provided by a built-in chin flap instead of an intrusive chin strap. This design of the hybrid mask means it can also be used while wearing eyeglasses, leaving you free to read or watch TV as you prepare for bed, as it does not have a forehead strap. This helps to relieve pressure points on the forehead and across the bridge of the nose as the mask cushion does not cover this area.
- Hybrid Design - oral, nasal, and combination interfaces
- Comfortable Headgear - no uncomfortable pressure points or chin straps
- Custom Fit - includes three sizes of nasal pillows and oral cushions
This mask design is great for users who wear glasses.

Cool full face design that uses a different design on the nasal piece. It goes in your nose instead of over, which is great for me since I would get irritated on the bridge of my nose. With some adjustment, the mask forms a good seal without causing any discomfort. I'm a very big fan of this, and it's much better than the masks I've used before.
Headgear isn't really anything to write home about, but it's good enough. The material can get a little hot but I'm able to sleep fine, so not really a negative.

I’ve always used a nasal pillow design as those were comfortable and kept my nose from getting irritated. However, I would always have some issues during allergy season or when I had a cold, when I would switch to mostly breathing through my mouth. Full face masks had the irritation issue I mentioned but I found this Hybrid which uses a nasal design with a mouth covering component too. This design is ingenious and has helped me a lot when I have congestion, letting me breathe freely without causing any irritation.
As mentioned, this design was the primary reason I chose the mask. It’s excellent, holding tight against my nose and mouth and delivering air cleanly. Leaks are minimal. Potential buyers of any kind of mask design should be able to find something to like in this. There’s no quick release feature on the tube feed like newer masks have, so that’s one downside. You’ll have to manually loosen the straps.
As for the headgear/straps, it’s fine. This is a pretty old mask so no fancy quick-release clips or magnets. You’ll have to manually loosen it which also means you have to tighten them each time you put it on. The straps are fine to adjust and the material is fine. It’s nothing to rave about but it doesn’t impede my sleep.
Overall, this is a fine mask. It has a very nice cushion design which makes it worth the price. Helped me with sleep when I have nasal congestion, but I think a wide variety of customers will like the design.

Update on this mask, I was correct in the fact the barbs that hold the straps to the mask are cheap and break off I purchased two replacement headgear straps and now cannot use them. Ill have to either return them if they will let me but I do not recommend this mask to anyone that wants a product that lasts. I expect more from these products simply because they are pricey and you should count on quality. this product has neither..
This mask is replacing a Phillips Full Face that is no longer available. I like the fact this mask has an improved field of vision and they send 3 sizes for you to try and get the best fit. NOTE: The rubber masks and nasal inserts are all the same size, What makes them Small Med Lrg are the holes in the rubber fittings. I am a fairly large man and the mask seems a bit small compared to my previous mask. I have been using this new mask for a few weeks now and I seem to be getting used to it. I like the fact the have the 30 day return as it may be beneficial to some that do not like the product. I will be keeping the mask as I have had a sleep disorder for several years and realize all products take some time to get used to.. I hope the plastic barbs on the hard mask the headgear attaches to hold out? My biggest beef is my nose gets extremely dry even with my humidifier full and on high. I would recommend the mask to anyone who asks. I will also be purchasing a few replacement head gear straps. Happy Sleeping Folks!
This mask has to be the best one I've used so far! I was using a Phillips Comfortgel Blue for a while, which was always leaking and gave me sores on the bridge of my nose. Ever since I got this one, I have had not one issue. I would highly recommend!
I have used CPPAP equipment for over 10 years and tried a collection of different masks.
This is the only one that have really worked. I have used this for the last three years. Finally found something that do not leak, and I am a side sleeper that moves a lot during the night.
Will highly recommend. Also recommend use an 8 feet air supply hose, so that you will have more room to move.
This is actually a pretty cool mask, at first I thought somebody ship me their lunch bag, but it was the mask I purchased. It can actually function as an oral and nasal interface, and in the package it came with 3 sizes of oral cushions and nasal pillows that way I can choose the right fit. Goodbye restless night!!!
Amazing mask, low leakage once you get the nose piece adjusted. Sleeps comfortably and easily :)! Love it!
I have been looking for a mask for awhile that i could easily sleep in. I have tried several versions of full faced masks. This one i can easily move around in, because i flip from side to back to stomache constantly. Very rarely does it leak or cause me problems.
