Confused about mask size? Try a FitPack


 A FitPack is a bundle, i.e., a mask with all three sizes of cushions-small, medium and large.

Replacing your mask

Replacing your equipment is an important part of being successful with your sleep therapy. Since masks are disposable, periodic replacement is needed when the mask shows signs of wear and tear.

Mask comfort is crucial for adherence
Do not overtighten your mask to compensate for wear and tear. Overtightening can cause discomfort.

Frequently asked questions

My headgear slips, how can I fix it?

We have enhanced our headgear for both the DreamWear Nasal and the DreamWear Silicone pillows masks with DreamWear headgear with arms.  It not only reduces slippage but also improves the overall stability of the mask.  See your favorite home healthcare equipment provider to purchase.

My DreamWear mask leaks, how can I fix it?

DreamWear nasal comes in 3 frames & 4 cushion sizes.  If you are experiencing leaks with the mask, contact your local homecare provider to try a smaller frame & / or cushion size. 


Additionally, we have also launched an updated slip resistant headgear with arms which may improve mask seal & overall stability.

I have the updated slip resistant headgear with arms, do I need to buy a new mask?

The updated slip-resistant DreamWear headgear with arms will work with your current DreamWear Nasal or Silicone pillows mask. It connects to the existing loops on the mask frame. You do not need a new mask to use this headgear unless recommended by your homecare provider.

How do I know I am putting on the headgear with arms correctly?

For easy orientation note the L & R symbol on the arms. Loop the tab with the L symbol through the left side loop on the frame and R on the right side. Once correctly assembled the L&R symbols will face outwards, DreamWear logo on the fabric will be on the right & Philips Respironics logo will be on the back of the headgear. 


You can also watch the “how to size & assemble the mask” video on YouTube.


Please refer to the instruction for use for more detailed information regarding the use of your device

I like my all fabric headgear, where can I get that?

The all fabric headgear is also available for use on DreamWear Nasal & Silicone Pillows mask, please contact your local homecare provider for more details.

With the tubing right next to the ear, will DreamWear Full Face be noisier than other masks?

From a sound level perspective, the DreamWear Full face mask is a quiet full-face mask. However, since the airflow is located closer to the ears with this design and not routing downward in front, some people may notice the airflow noise more than a traditional mask. For most users, the experience is quiet and comfortable with the unique design offering more freedom of movement. However, since this is such a different design, it may take some people some time to get used to the difference in the noise. It’s not louder, simply different.

If a person lays on their side and closes off one side of the tubing, will the mask still provide therapy? Will it create a pressure spike?

The mask will continue to provide the prescribed therapy. Every other mask on the market operates with one tube running to the cushion and this mask operates in the same way. No increase of pressure or noise will occur. 

There are 3 sizes of frames. How do I choose the right size?

Always start with the medium frame. If the mask is too small, the frame will sit too close to the eyes. If the mask is too big, it will sit too close to the ears. Please refer to the quick start guide or instructions manual for pictures and a thorough description. In most cases, it will be obvious if a different size frame is needed. However, if there are leaks at night or the mask seems to move too much, a different size frame and/or cushion should be tried. 

What are the cushion sizes? Does it size the same as DreamWear under the nose nasal cushions? Does it size the same as Amara View?

DreamWear Full Face cushions come in four sizes: small, medium, large, and medium-wide. The full face cushion, while covering both the nose and mouth, is sized based on the nasal opening, just like the under-the- nose cushions. The nasal opening is the exact same design and shape as the DreamWear under the nose cushion which means, there is a direct correlation between DreamWear full face and DreamWear under-the-nose sizing – a medium in the full face is a medium in the nasal, etc. However, the DreamWear full face nasal opening is a different design and shape than the Amara View opening and the two masks size differently.


Therefore, there is not a direct correlation between DreamWear full face and Amara View.

How can you tell the difference between cushion and frame sizes?

The cushion indicator is on the front of the cushion next to the arrow that points to the arrow on the frame for the connection. The frame size indicator is on the top of the frame behind the elbow connection. 

Why is it that a person measures one size on the sizing gauge but works better with another size cushion?

The sizing gauge is a guideline to indicate which cushion to start with.  However, it is only a guideline and will never be 100% accurate.  It is always best to start with the size suggested by the gauge but then fit for comfort if another cushion and frame size combination works better for you.

Philips Respironics now offers Mask Selector 3D and 2D tools.  Philips Respironics Mask Selector is rooted in science and data:

-Pioneering tool for achieving CPAP mask personalization

-Proprietary software based on over 10 years of facial scanning research for mask design

-Mask type, sizing and fitting algorithm built upon a wide range of ethnicities and geographies

-Ask your home healthcare equipment provider if they are a certified provider of this service.

Is there a sizing gauge in the bag?

The sizing gauge is included with the mask in the bag and is part of the Quick Start Guide that is attached to the mask on the elbow.
