CPAP Mask Replacement Headgear
Masks are made up of three major parts: the frame, the cushion, and the headgear. Headgear is the part that holds the mask in place. All masks have headgear. The headgear is directly related to the size and model of the mask. CPAP mask headgear is made to be adjustable so you can rest easy while also benefiting from sleep apnea therapy. But like with most soft materials, your headgear will wear out over time. Even normal use will eventually cause the straps to loosen up, stretch out, or fray over time. You may eventually need to pull the straps so tight that your headgear is uncomfortable to wear and it's a lot harder to sleep when you're uncomfortable. There is no exact timeline on when headgear needs to be replaced, but if you are noticing wear and tear, then check out RespShop.com's replacement CPAP mask headgear to wrap around your head at night.
The headgears today are soft, comfortable and as light as possible, to encourage compliance. Your mask must be comfortable for daily usage. Never over-tighten your headgear. Once your mask is fitted, you should be able to run your fingers easily between the straps and your face and head. Overtightening can actually cause leaks and will leave marks on your face each morning. The headgear is specific to the mask and is not interchangeable. Headgear can be washed as needed and hung to dry. The headgear should be replaced every 6 months to a year. This depends on the wear of every individual user.
