Philips Respironics Dreamwear Mask Review

Philips Respironics Dreamwear Mask Review

PROS: Unique design. Alternative to nasal pillows. Durable. CONS: Prone to leakage in certain positions. Dual vents may create noise. May be difficult to clean and dry. OVERALL: Another mask from Respironics that tries to merge a number of designs that may cater to a certain group of CPAP users. Recently, Philips Respironics has been prepping us for the release of their “Dream” line-up. Although I might not be authorized to announce the upcoming release of their new Dreamstation CPAP/ BiPAP line-up because Philips want to keep it “hush-hush”, they have however, released the Dreamwear mask for all of us to start dreaming about what’s to come. Over the past few years, Philips Respironics has struggled to develop a mask that competes with the Resmed and Fisher& Paykel line of mask offerings, so this time instead of trying to imitate the designs from their competitors, they finally tried to completely change the design with the Dreamwear nasal mask. For those who have not seen it in person, you might be deceived by the pictures that have been published online. Is it a nasal mask or a nasal pillow mask one might ask? Well let’s just say it’s a hybrid of both designs. Don’t be mistaken by the hybrid designs of the full face mask like the Liberty Mask from ResMed; this one is completely different. A number of years ago, Respironics released two masks similar to this called the comfort Curve and the Optilife but they didn’t really gain much traction in the industry and to be honest were short-lived. Let’s just start by saying, that the Dreamwear is...

CPAP Therapy: A simple solution for better sleep!

So you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, and maybe you are just a little unsure about your doctor prescribing you a 30 day trial on the CPAP machine, also sometimes referred to as a sleep apnea machine. Let us share with you the history behind the machine and what you can expect from your CPAP therapy. CPAP is an acronym for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. When you suffer from sleep apnea, your airways relax and collapse to cause an obstruction in your breath, and the CPAP machine counter acts this by gently blowing air into the airways through a mask that fits over your nose. The machine is a small, quiet and portable, which means that it can go with you wherever you travel, and does not disturb your sleeping partner. Furthermore, CPAP therapy will do the following things extremely well, and that is why it is the number one prescribed treatment for sufferers of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). ➢ Stops snoring ➢ Improves quality of life ➢ Restores restful sleep ➢ Reduces the risk of heart attack, hypertension, stroke, motor vehicle and work place accidents CPAP machines have a 80-90% success rate in treatment for OSA, versus 60% for oral appliances, 50% for invasive surgery, and various results for weight loss, which different for each individual. Every CPAP user inevitably goes through a period of adjustment while on their CPAP trial, as they are becoming familiar with using their equipment, however, we are hear to help you on every step of your journey.
