Do you need a rx prescription for your CPAP mask?
No, you do not need a prescription (Rx) to purchase a CPAP mask. However, it's recommended to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the most suitable type of mask for your individual needs.

Yes, most CPAP masks are compatible with most CPAP machines with the exception of the ResMed Airmini which requires a special setup pack or adapter.
What are the different types of CPAP masks?
Nasal masks: These cover your nose and are held in place with a strap. They are a good option if you breathe through your nose and prefer a mask that's easy to use and maintain.
Nasal pillows: These are small, soft cushions that fit into your nostrils, creating a seal without covering the nose. They are a good option for those who prefer a more minimalistic mask and for those who breathe through their nose.
Full face masks: These cover both the nose and mouth and are held in place with a strap. They are a good option for those who breathe through their mouth, have nasal obstructions or congestion, or those who prefer a more secure mask.
How often to replace CPAP mask?
CPAP masks should generally be replaced every 3-6 months, but this can vary. Check your mask for signs of wear and replace as needed. Replace the cushion or pillows every 1-3 months for a proper fit.
