DreamWear Full Face CPAP Mask – FitPack

 

The DreamWear Full Face CPAP Mask from Philips Respironics is designed to give full face patients more freedom and comfort than any mask before it. The unique design directs airflow through the frame up to the top of the head. This positioning allows patients to sleep in their preferred sleeping position – whether on their front, side or back – with greater ease. The under-nose design also minimises facial contact – improved comfort and making it easier to seal.

This positioning allows patients to sleep in their preferred sleeping position – whether on their front, side or back – with greater ease. The under-nose design also minimises facial contact – improved comfort and making it easier to seal.

In studies conducted by Philips, patients reported that the DreamWear provided more comfort and provided a better fit than their existing masks. The DreamWear Full Face was being compared to leading masks such as the ResMed AirFit F10 and F20, Fisher & Paykel’s Simplus, and Philips’ own Amara View.

 

 

This FitPack comes with all four cushion sizes included, making it ideal for those wanting to try the mask for the first time. You can try all of the sizes to determine which provides the most comfortable and effective fit for your needs.

Mask Fit Insurance is available for this mask

If you are considering trying this mask for the first time, you can order in confidence using Mask Fit Insurance.

Mask Fit Insurance costs £14.99 for nasal masks and £19.99 for full face masks, and allows you to return this mask for a refund if unsuitable.

You have 28 days from the dispatch date to assess the mask and notify us that you are unhappy with it for any reason. You can return it and have it refunded (we must receive it back within 7 days of being notified).

The fee for the insurance is non-refundable once the mask is opened, nor are any outgoing postage costs. The mask itself will be refunded in full.

A pre-paid returns label will be included for customers in the UK. We strongly recommend getting a proof of postage (which is free) as returns not received cannot be refunded. For overseas customers, the return postage will need to be arranged by the customer and this cannot be reimbursed.

CPAP masks purchased without insurance cannot be returned/refunded once opened for hygiene reasons, as explained in our returns policy.

Mask Fit Insurance must be ordered at the same time as the mask in question, and cannot be added retroactively.

Intus Healthcare reserve the right not to honour any orders containing multiple masks purchased with Insurance; please instead choose which mask you feel is most suitable and select the size required as per the sizing gauge (if applicable). Should you subsequently determine a different mask or size is required, you can of course return the first and order the other.

If you need any further information, please use the chat function (if available), or contact us.

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.

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 of the patient, some people may notice the airflow noise more than a traditional mask. For most patients 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 use to the difference in the noise. It’s not louder, simply different.

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

Always start with the medium frame, which is the size included with the FitPack. 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. If a different size frame is required, it can be purchased separately.

How do I clean the mask?

If you remove the headgear, cushion and swivel, the frame is essentially one tube. This can be cleaned the same way the short tubing on other masks or the longer CPAP tubing is cleaned. Wash with warm soapy water, it can be rinsed through the swivel connection as well. Set to dry and if there happens to be any remaining moisture in the tube before therapy is started, connecting it to the CPAP with pressure can help to remove this. The mask may also be cleaned in the dishwasher once a week. The non-fabric parts can be washed on the top shelf of the dishwasher and air dried. Please refer to the instructions manual that came with the mask.

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.

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 works better. This is why we recommend the FitPack when trying the DreamWear Full Face for the first time, as all sizes are included to allow you to try them all.

This mask has magnetic headgear clips, is it safe to use with a pacemaker?
