Getting the perfect fitting CPAP Mask is not always easy. In this article, we will guide you to choosing the right fit for your mask, even if the task seems daunting.

Let’s begin by learning a little about how CPAP mask sizing works. 

Mask Sizing in the CPAP Industry

Currently there isn’t any specific standard for the sizing of CPAP masks. Sizing differs among all models of CPAP masks, even within manufacturers. The usual sizes of masks are petite, extra small, small, medium, large, and extra-large. 

Some manufacturers are starting to include a variety of cushion sizes within one mask package to help alleviate the issues sizing can bring up. In most cases, the headgear included with a CPAP mask is one size fits most, while small or large headgear sizes are usually available if needed.

Gauging the Size of Your Face

Q: How do you get fitted for a CPAP mask?

Manufacturers now offer sizing gauges for most of their mask products. These are very useful when determining the mask size. Although not always completely accurate because individuals have unique facial features, it is a great place to start.

Here at Respshop.com we have accumulated as many CPAP Mask Sizing Gauge PDF files as we could find for the masks we carry. These will help you measure for the mask that is an ideal size for you. 

(Note that for added security in your CPAP Mask purchase, you can add our Mask Assurance to your order. Our Mask Assurance Program enables you to use the mask for up to 30 days risk free. 

If for any reason you want to exchange or return the CPAP mask, please inform us by the 30th day after the purchase. We will then exchange or refund the amount spent on the mask, no questions asked.)

Mask Fit and Adjustment

Upon choosing the mask size and style for your face, you will need to adjust it properly before sleep. While sitting upright on your bed, turn the machine on, and hold the mask against your face with the straps unfastened. 

Lie down in your normal sleeping position with your head on your pillow. Now gently and slowly pull the straps until you get a good seal, and then fasten the straps.

We hope this guide has helped you choose the right size for your CPAP mask.
