Comfortable Chinstrap for CPAP Masks
The Respironics chin strap is a basic strap designed to connect to the headgear straps on your mask. The chin cradle of the Respironics chin strap has a narrow and a wide section, giving you two different positioning options.
CPAP chin straps are helpful for patients who get dry mouth, or if your mouth drops open during sleep. This indicates that your jaw drops, which allows the air from the CPAP machine to flow out of your mouth.
To attach the Respironics CPAP chin strap, simply wrap the strap around your forehead, leaving enough space so that your head is comfortable. Attach the velcro straps near your ears for an optimal fit.

Don't overtighten the strap: the strap is intended to make your sleep apnea more therapeutic, and if it's too tight, you will struggle to fall asleep.

Using the Chin strap
- Put on your mask and headgear
- Remove the two small hook tabs from the chin strap and place one on each of the upperstraps of the Softcap or headgear. Position them near your temples. The tabs will not stick to all surfaces of the Softcap and should only be applie to the straps.
- Hold the chin strap with fuzzer side of the elastic strap toward your face. You may want to try fitting the chin cradle so that the narrower section is closer to your lips, placing the wider section under your chin in order to achieve the best fit.
