DreamWear Full Face Mask - Philips Respironics
The Philips Respironics DreamWear Full Face mask is a light weight, compact mask perfect for full face mask users who want a comfortable, un-obstructive mask for use with CPAP or BIPAP! The DreamWear Full Face uses an under the nose, over the mouth cushion with the tubular silicone frame common to all DreamWear masks.
Air from the CPAP circuit flows from a swiveling elbow connection at the crown of the head, through the frame, into the mouth and the nose. Four point headgear attaches to the cushion with magnets and steadies the frame on the face.
The DreamWear Full Face cushion rests under the nose while covering the mouth. Front facing air vents quiet exhaled air. The DreamWear Full Face mask assembles and disassembles easily for cleaning.
Over the head circuit connection
With the DreamWear’s innovative frame design, air flow filters seamlessly through the frame to the cushion. The hose connection placed at the top of the head swivels to allow the user to turn naturally and sleep in every possible position.
Traditional full face CPAP masks leave red marks and irritation on the nose bridge. With the DreamWear's innovative, under-the-nose, over the mouth design, you can receive the benefits of full face mask CPAP therapy without any rigid plastic pressed into the bridge of the nose!
Open field of vision
Since there is no bulky headgear or plastic touching the forehead or crowding the eyes, you have an open field of vision. This allows you to easily wear your glasses or watch TV in bed.
Magnetic quick release clips
Magnetic quick release clips hold the headgear to the cushion. The magnetic clips are a blessing for those who have limited hand motion. There will be no more difficulties in the middle of the night when you need to take off your mask, as it is super easy to take off and put back on again.
The headgear is one size fits all. The DreamWear frame comes in small, medium, and large. The DreamWear full face cushion comes in small, medium, large, and medium-wide.

Mix & Match with DreamWear!
Whether you are new to CPAP or are still looking for the perfect sleep apnea mask for you, the DreamWear line is a great place to find a mask that works. All cushions in this line can be interchanged with the DreamWear frame to save you time and money in your search for comfort and good sleep. Available cushion options include the full face, nasal, and nasal pillow cushions.
To use the DreamWear nasal cushion or nasal pillows with the DreamWear Full mask, you just need to acquire:
- DreamWear Nasal Pillows or DreamWear Nasal Cushion
- DreamWear Headgear with Arms
Sizing from one type of cushion to another does not always translate. To be sure of your size in nasal pillows or nasal cushion, check out the corresponding sizing gauge located above on the tab labeled “Size Gauge”.
Can I clean my mask in the dishwasher?
Once a week, you can put the frame, cushion, elbow, and quick release connector in the top rack of the dishwasher. Use a mild detergent. Dry with an air dry cycle or lay the parts out to air dry away from direct sunlight. Do not put the headgear in the dishwasher.
Weekly dishwasher cleaning supplements daily mask cleaning. It does not replace it.
Does the DreamWear Full Face mask work with the new DreamWear Headgear with Arms?
No. The DreamWear full face cushion needs four points of attachment.
Careful sizing of both the face cushion and the frame is vital to successful CPAP therapy with the DreamWear Full Face mask. The face cushion should sit entirely under the nose, but none of the nose should sit inside the cushion opening. Optimal frame size depends on the length of your face. The medium frame is a good starting point for most people. The frame should not touch the ears or eyes.
A Fit Pack option includes all four sizes of cushions and a medium frame. The DreamWear Full mask is sold in a variety of other packaging options, as well.

If you are still shopping and looking for additional guidance on masks to consider, read on!
We all have unique facial structures and RespShop stocks a large variety of masks for CPAP so that everyone can find something that works best for them. Facial hair simply adds another wrinkle to the search for the mask that is your ticket to better sleep. For you mouth breathing beard wearers, don’t worry. Look for full face designs that rest low on the chin or that have soft frames that conform to the face. The DreamWear Full Face CPAP Mask uses a hybrid cushion that sits under the nose and over the mouth. This hybrid type of mask works very well with facial hair.
When shopping for a CPAP mask to wear with facial hair, don’t fall into the trap of sizing up. Use size guide and select the size that fits your facial structure. Over sizing results in leaks, frustration, and discomfort.

I’ve used this mask for a couple of weeks now and in my limited time with it, I’ve liked the DreamWear a lot. Not normally a full face mask user but I was having trouble with breathing through allergy congestion on my old nasal mask. After consulting with Respshop, they recommended that I try a face full mask so I decided to try this mask.
As I mentioned, I purchased this mask so I could breathe through my mouth more when my nose was congested. I’ve found the cushion to be quite comfortable actually, despite my initial hesitation at switching over. The padding is nice and absorptive and I like that it doesn’t go over my nose but rather under. My nasal masks were all pillow designs rather than cushion, so this felt like a very natural and comfortable transition. Leakage hasn’t been a problem, since the cushion seals against my face quite well.
The dual-tube design works quite well too, I was a little worried about reduced airflow when I slept on my side but I haven’t found that to be an issue. Each tube individually isn’t much thinner than a regular solo air feed, so I haven’t noticed any kind of difficulty breathing. The design has let me comfortably sleep on my side again, which was great since I was never great with sleeping on my back. Air feed goes to top of head which is convenient too, I have my machine on my nightstand and now the hose runs up and away from me. The DreamWear is definitely pricier than most masks, but I think its’ well wroth it for any one.
I have used this mask system for over a year now. Literally, I have used it since I first was diagnosed and found that I needed it. I have had very little problems with the system, as I use the Philips Respironics Dreamstation (with humidifier). I am for the most part pleased with the setup. I am very observant of the required cleaning and maintenance, so mask parts tend to last longer. Except for the headstrap. The materials used do not stand up to daily use over extended time. The straps lose their elasticity, and the velcro fasteners just wear out. When you are on Medicare, they say the straps are only covered for replacement every six months, and the straps do not last that long. I have talked to Respironics and they are aware of and are supposedly working on this. Until such time this is resolved I usually have to buy an extra strap here and there. $39+ at Repshop.
I wanted to write this review to say that this is my favorite mask I’ve used, and that the dual channel air tubes are not “dangerous”. I’ll give some thoughts on the mask first and then I’ll try to give a quick explanation why the dual supply isn’t an issue.
Comfort: Big fan of the swivel tube on the top. Something that always irked me with my previous masks was having the hose run over my chest/arms/legs. With a tube on the top though, I can position my machine towards my headboard and have the tube completely free of my body. No quick release on the connector here which is a little sad since I always find that the easiest way to detach during midnight excursions. The dual tube design is also fantastic, because it means you can sleep on either side without worrying about obstructed airflow. I saw some reviews worrying about the safety of “restricted airflow” but that’s not an issue.
Fit/finish: The cushion is great, I like that it doesn’t cover the entire nose, since the contact with the nose bridge on other masks has always bothered me. All the usual perks of a full-face mask apply, especially when you have a stuffy nose. Four straps mean sufficient adjustment, but the frame itself is relatively static. You’ll need to pick out the right size on that one, otherwise I could see fit being a problem. This is one of those masks that has air diffusers to help reduce noise, my partner never really had a problem with other masks but still a nice touch.
Goes without saying, I really like the mask for the above reasons. No complaints but I do want to defend the double tube design. When you sleep on your side, one tube gets compressed, so the other tube does the lifting. Some people think this means you’re getting half the air or whatnot, making it dangerous, but that’s not how the physics works. Turn on your garden hose and fill a gallon bucket timing it. Then empty the bucket and try it again, this time covering half the hose opening with a finger. The water shoots out faster (Pressure = Force/Area) but it’s still going to take the same amount of time to fill the bucket. You haven’t lost out on any water in this analogy, meaning you’re not getting less air when one tube gets compressed.
can not get it to stay in place and does not seal good. tried differant sizes but no change

I don't understand why folks have a hard time grasping dual air supply.
The design is such that either side can supply all the air thats needed, it isn't a hazard as some would suggest but a safety design giving one two air supplies instead of one.
Don't believe me, put the mask on then collapse one side with your finger, you won't notice the difference.
Sorry, I didn't like this mask - hurt my nose. I went back to my FP mask which is more comfortable and quiter.

Great product. Great customer service. Delivered fast. Down side is fast delivery expensive when you need product for health issue immediately. The only thing I would change is the extra air piece instead small/med an option for a larger size with it. I still give this product 5 stars.
I have been using the Philips DreamWear Full Face Mask for 10 days. I am extremely satisfied as I am consistently getting over 8 hours of sleep. Previously I had been using the Philips DreamWare Under the Nose Nasal Mask for over 2 years and typically was only getting 6 to 7 hours of sleep
To bad if you don’t like it you cannot return it for a refund so they say...those words were not on the page I ordered from..just 30 day return....sorry company not the merchandise
Mask came brand new in package and is in pristine condition.
The top of the head attachment for the hose is perfect for people that toss and turn. My husband found this face mask worked the best for him, especially since he sleeps on his side mostly. The fit has been right on for him.
Was delivered very quickly. It is just like the one I used in clinical trial. It came with all the needed parts. Sleep very well. The price was great. Thanks so much!
Great mask in the size configuration I was in need of. Not available anywhere else even my usual medical supplier. Great service as well. Highly recommend.
I find the mask air leakage is inconsistent. I am trying to figure out why some days is 100% fit while other days are 54%. The air leakage has exceeded 2 hours. I am really baffled and do not know what to do. The mask size is what they recommended at the sleep study.
This is the best designed full face ever! It took a few days to get used to but after that it was perfect. This complaint about air being blocked is a non issue. The air travels down both sides of the mask so If one side is blocked it comes down the other side.
I don't know what the other user is talking about. I've used the nasal-only version of this mask for a little over 2 years and just switched to this one. Side-sleeping is not a problem with either. The whole point of using this mask is that it allows you to move and not lose the seal or pressure. Air comes down both sides.
There is no more comfortable mask than the DreamWear. I've used several before finally finding as close to perfection as possible.
In theory the mask is ideal. However the side air tubes are constricted when side sleeping making the mask dangerous to use.
I am returning the mask today.
