DreamWear Mask with Gel Nasal Pillows – Philips Respironics
The DreamWear gel nasal pillows CPAP mask retains all the innovation from the popular DreamWear nasal mask and simply swaps in nasal pillows in place of the under-the-nose cushion. This mask has several unusual features intended to keep your line of sight clear, allow freedom of movement, and enhance comfort. The modular design of the CPAP mask permits a quick conversion from nasal pillows to the under-the-nose cushion, giving the CPAP user flexible, efficient options.
Soft silicone frame
Over-the-head connection for tubing
Gel layer on nasal pillows to reduce chafing
Minimal facial contact
The gel pillows cushion on the mask sits under the nose, leaving the bridge of the nose untouched. A silicone tip fits inside the nostril while a soft gel layer rests over the nostrils to complete the seal while preventing nasal irritation. The design accommodates glasses, reading, and television watching.
Soft, flexible frame
The soft silicone mask frame rests gently along the sides of your face and moves with you as you move in your sleep. The airflow from the CPAP machine travels through the frame to the mask’s cushion. Since there are no hard plastic pieces, sleeping comfortably on your side is possible once the mask is fitted correctly. Fabric wraps can be placed on the silicone frame if you prefer the feel of cloth.
Elbow connection on the head
The hose to the CPAP machine connects to an elbow on top of the headgear, sending flow through the silicone frame to the cushion under the nose. Most CPAP machines connect to the front of the mask at the cushion. This innovative design keeps the CPAP tubing behind you and out of your way all night long.
Sizing and Fitting
The Philips Respironics Gel Nasal pillow mask comes in three frame sizes (small, medium, and large), and the nasal pillows come in three sizes (small, medium, and large). Careful sizing of both the nasal pillows and the frame is essential to attain the full benefits of all the unique features this mask offers.
Three sizes of pillows are included in the Fit Pack so you can quickly evaluate which size is best for you. The silicone tip of the pillows should rest inside the nostrils. The blue gel base on the pillows should rest entirely outside the nostrils.
The medium frame included in the Fit Pack fits most people, but if there are leaks or frustrations with tightness or pillow movement away from the nostrils despite having the right size nasal pillows, you may need a smaller or larger frame.
To get the best fit for comfort and effective CPAP delivery:
First, place the nasal pillows under the nose.
Next, position the elbow connector at the top of the head.
Pull the headgear behind the head.
Adjust the fit evenly with both tabs on the headgear.

CPAPMAN Mask Review
The DreamWear Gel CPAP Mask is a unique and innovative product that has been designed to provide maximum comfort and freedom of movement for users during sleep therapy. The mask's soft, silicone frame directs airflow through two tubes that join at the nasal pillows, allowing for an unrestricted airflow and accommodating almost any sleeping position.

It’s a fantastic design if you often feel tangled up in your CPAP equipment or like to sleep on your side. Many people love nasal pillows, but some people find they dry the nose out too much or cause friction inside the nostrils.
The gel-infused nasal pillows of the DreamWear Gel CPAP Mask provide a soft, secure seal without red marks, pressure, or pinching. The nasal pillows contour to the base of the nostrils and adapt naturally to facial contours, ensuring maximum comfort for the user.
The DreamWear Gel CPAP Mask's headgear is simple and secure, with a soft, single strap that rests at the back of the head, stabilizing the mask without requiring over-tightening or excessive contact. The tubing elbow is located on the top of the head, where it can swivel freely to help reduce drag and clutter on the bedsheets.
The DreamWear Gel CPAP Mask is lightweight and provides minimal contact, making it one of the most minimal masks available for CPAP therapy. It provides users with an open field of view for reading, talking, or watching TV before bed.
