How Does a CPAP Chin Strap Work?
CPAP chin straps hold your moth closed and keeps your jaw in place while you undergo sleep apnea treatment. These chin straps are designed to work seamlessly with CPAP equipment and won't interfere with your mask's headgear. Using the chin straps will complement and optimize your CPAP therapy by reducing leaks and making the mask more effective. We offer a wide selection of CPAP chin straps for sleep apnea from industry leaders like PureSom, Philips Respironics and ResMed.
Using one of these CPAP chin straps will help you to enhance your sleep apnea therapy for maximum effectiveness and better results. While CPAP mask straps are not a requirement for CPAP users, they can greatly help those who may be experiencing a greater than normal amount of leakage. As a bonus, CPAP chin straps also help to eliminate snoring.In addition to open-mouth sleepers, people who have a deviated septum or small nostrils will enjoy the convenience of a CPAP chin strap. Also, for those who have trouble breathing through their mouth instead of their nose and people who find the full face mask uncomfortable and awkward, CPAP chin straps are a great alternative.
CPAP chin straps are designed to hold your mouth closed while using a CPAP machine, helping to reduce or eliminate leaks. Rather than a cumbersome full face mask that might make you look like Darth Vader, with a CPAP chin strap you can comfortably use a standard nasal or nasal pillow mask.
Note: If you use a full face mask, you don't need a chin strap. It's designed so that the mouth area is covered, so you won't experience the leakage that you may get with a nasal or nasal pillow mask.
