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 pressing into your nasal bridge.
Open field of vision
Since no bulky headgear or plastic touches the forehead or crowds the eyes, the DreamWear Full Face Mask provides an open light of sight that makes it perfect for reading or watching TV. It's also one of the few full face masks that is compatible with glasses.
Magnetic quick-release clips
With a pair of magnetic quick-release clips, the DreamWear Full Face allows for effortless mask adjustments and easy removal and reattachment, even in the middle of the night.
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.
The headgear is one-size-fits-all while the frame in available in small, medium, and large. The DreamWear Full-Face Cushion comes in small, medium, large, and medium-wide.

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 DreamWear Full Face Mask in the dishwasher?
Yes, you can clean your 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. Instead, allow the parts to air dry away from direct sunlight after cleaning. Please do not put the fabric headgear in the dishwasher.
Weekly dishwasher cleaning supplements daily mask cleaning but does not replace it. 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.
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.
Does the DreamWear Full Face mask work with the new DreamWear Headgear with Arms?
No. The DreamWear Headgear with Arms is not compatible with the DreamWear Full Face Mask.
Careful sizing of both the face cushion and the frame is vital to successful CPAP therapy with the DreamWear Full Face mask. The cushion should sit under the nose, but no part 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.
The fit pack (SKU 1133400), which includes all four sizes of cushions and a medium frame, is a convenient choice for new users.
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.
