Mouth breathing is a common problem when using continuous positive airway pressure (cpap) for sleep apnea. That is why ResMed, developed a line of oral masks especially for mouth breathers. ResMed is a leading developer of medical products for sleep disorders.

ResMed cpap machines and accessories have been selling in stores since the early 90’s. Their products lean toward the treatment of common breathing problems with focus on sleep disorders. ResMed cpap products range from sleep devices, ventilation devices, humidifiers, masks and screening devices.

ResMed’s Mission Statement : Provide global leadership in sleep medicine and non-invasive ventilation based on innovative technology advancing the diagnosis, treatment, and management of sleep-disordered breathing.

Some people unconsciously open their mouth a little to breathe while asleep. This specially happens when exhaling. If you are a nasal cpap user, this can reduce the effectiveness of your therapy. This is because the required level of air pressure is not delivered sufficiently. Mouth breathing is also common when you have colds, allergies or any other nasal obstruction.

Chin straps can be a good solution for mouth breathers. It keeps the mouth closed while you sleep.  Full face mask is also an option. The name is a little misleading because it doesn’t really cover your face but only the nose and the mouth. However, there are masks available that covers the face entirely including the eyes.
