The nasal mask is one style of mask interface for the effective delivery of positive air pressure therapy for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
The cause of sleeping difficulties with OSA patients is the fact that the airway muscles become relaxed during sleep and close off, obstructing breathing and causing the patient to awaken from sleep. Applying continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP) to the airway can keep the airway open and allow the patient to breathe more regularly and to sleep better.
Positive air pressure is generated from a BiPAP or CPAP machine and delivered to the patient’s airway through the nasal mask interface. A BiPAP or CPAP nasal mask fits snuggly over the patient’s nose to form an airtight seal so that the air pressure can be applied to the patient’s airways. The mask seal must remain stable for the duration of sleep for the therapy to be effective.
