DreamWear Full Face Mask - Philips Respironics
The Philips Respironics DreamWear Full Face mask is a lightweight, compact mask perfect for full-face mask users who want a comfortable, unobstructive 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, and into the mouth and the nose. The four-point headgear is attached 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 the exhaled air. You can assemble and disassemble the DreamWear Full Face mask easily for cleaning.
Over-the-head circuit connection
With DreamWear’s innovative frame design, airflow 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 DreamWear's innovative, under-the-nose, over-the-mouth design, you can receive the benefits of full-face mask CPAP therapy without rigid plastic pressed into the bridge of the nose.
Open field of vision
Since no bulky headgear or plastic touches the forehead or crowds 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 movement. 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 it off and put it back on.
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 to use with the DreamWear frame to save you time and money in your search for comfort and good sleep. Available cushion options include 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 cushions, check out the corresponding sizing gauge located above under 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 and do not use the drying cycle. Allow the parts to air dry away from direct sunlight. Please do not put the fabric headgear in the dishwasher.
Weekly dishwasher cleaning supplements daily mask cleaning. It does not replace it.
The frame, cushion, elbow, and quick-release connector can also be hand-washed once a week. Use mild, unscented soap and rinse all parts thoroughly under running water. Let the parts air dry away from direct sunlight.
Like with all masks, the DreamWear full face cushion should be cleaned daily with mild soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly under running water and let the cushion air dry away from direct sunlight.
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. The 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.
Recommended If You Have Facial Hair
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.
Mouth-breathing beard wearers need not 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 the sizing guide and select the size that fits your facial structure. Over-sizing results in leaks, frustration, and discomfort.
Note: If you have a metallic medical implant, such as a pacemaker, defibrillator, etc., we recommend choosing a mask that does not use magnetic clips.
