Exploring the Top Full Face CPAP Masks

Taking a look at the top options available in full face masks from leading CPAP mask manufacturers

While full face masks might not be the most popular mask design available, there are more than enough of them to make choosing one feel daunting if you’re unsure where to start.

In this roundup, we will explore popular full face CPAP mask models and take a quick dive into why you might choose a full face design over smaller models, such as nasal masks or nasal pillow masks

Let’s get started!

Full Face CPAP Masks Explained

Like the oxygen mask you might see in a medical show on TV, full face masks typically cover the nose and mouth completely.

This expanded coverage naturally makes them some of the bulkiest mask designs today.

However, thanks to lightweight materials and intelligent design, added size doesn’t have to mean the mask is overly heavy or uncomfortable to wear.

The added coverage comes with additional benefits for some users as well. 

If you’re the type who switches between mouth or nose breathing throughout the night, a full face mask can eliminate the need to worry about a chin strap while ensuring you receive optimal pressure levels throughout the night.

The larger size and higher surface area on the seal against your face also make these masks ideal for high-pressure CPAP prescriptions.

If you tend to toss and turn or prefer to sleep on your side or stomach, full face masks might not offer the comfort and flexibility you need though.

The added bulk around the bridge of the nose can also obstruct your view if you prefer to read or watch television while in bed—especially if you wear glasses.

Top Full Face Mask Options

Like most CPAP mask options, you’ll find that full face CPAP masks come with a unique balance of benefits and concerns that you’ll need to consider based on your preferences and needs before deciding on the best option for you. 

The following picks receive praise from online reviews, industry experts, and our customers. 

Respironics Dreamwear Full Face CPAP Mask

Featuring Respironics’ hollow frame design and top-of-head hose connection, the Respironics Dreamwear Full Face CPAP Mask keeps the bulk to a minimum while providing excellent performance for a range of pressure ratings and sleep positions.

The hollow frame is also cross-compatible with Respironics’ Dreamwear nasal and nasal pillow cushions to provide greater flexibility and ease of use. However, the headgears for the masks are different, so be sure to consider your needs if you plan to use multiple cushion types.

Instead of resting over the bridge of the nose, the minimal cushion covers the mouth and rests on the bottom of the nose—just covering both nostrils—to provide the performance and comfort of a full face mask without visual obstruction and bulk.

Finally, magnetic clasps make tear down and reassembly a breeze—a critical consideration for routine maintenance and upkeep.

ResMed AirFit F20 Full Face CPAP Mask

ResMed’s open visibility design ensures that no straps or headgear elements will obstruct your view.

At the same time, the InfinitySeal full face cushion offers reliable performance and comfort for various pressure ratings.

Paired with the padded headgear and magnetic clips, you’ll find the mask comfortable and easy to adjust when searching for that perfect fit.

With multiple headgear sizes available, you can further customize the fit to suit your facial structure and preferences!

Finally, a quick-release elbow with an air diffuser helps to keep your breathing quiet—something those sleeping nearby will love—while making it easy to release the mask from the CPAP tubing for those late-night trips to the restroom or kitchen.

ResMed AirFit F30i Full Face CPAP Mask

The ResMed AirFit F30i Full Face CPAP Mask sheds much of the bulk at the front of your face, featuring a top-of-head hose connection, hollow frame, and minimal cushion, maintaining ideal performance—even when using higher pressure levels.

The mask design minimizes facial touch points to reduce facial irritation and eliminate distractions or visual obstructions while wearing the mask. 

That means no more frustrations when trying to read or watch TV in bed!

Quiet venting technology also works to improve comfort not just for you but for those around you as well—reducing your breathing noise to a whisper-quiet level.

Finally, magnetic clips and a quick-release elbow make donning, disassembly, and reassembly simple. 

Whether you’re getting up for a quick drink after lying down or breaking down your setup for a good cleaning, everything is intuitive.

ResMed Mirage Quattro Full Face CPAP Mask

The ResMed Mirage Quattro Full Face CPAP mask is all about adaptability with a dual cushion design, four different sizing options, and a 24-step Microfit dial.

While it’s far from the sleekest mask on this list, it makes up for the added heft with customizability. 

If you have trouble finding a mask that stays in place without overtightening or you’re an active sleeper needing something to provide reliable performance at high pressure levels, this is an excellent option.

Other features include a refined air vent design for quieter operation, set-and-forget headgear, and a cushion membrane at the chin to support jaw movement and ensure a solid seal throughout the night.

Fisher & Paykel Evora Full Face CPAP Mask

Fisher & Paykel’s Dynamic Support designs provide freedom of movement and minimal touchpoints while ensuring your mask is always firmly in place.

Their full face mask design features their Stability Wings for a snug fit, while the cushion’s Floating Seal design ensures full pressure delivery—even for restless sleepers. 

Their VentiCool headgear technology also helps to wick away moisture and allow heat to dissipate, keeping you stay cool and comfortable throughout the night.

Better yet, the minimal design means that breaking down the mask to replace components or give things a thorough cleaning is straightforward.

Note: This mask is sold in a Fit Pack so you will receive all sizes of this mask and be able to fit it at home.
