Formerly known as sleep comfort care pads, these unique CPAP mask pads help achieve a better seal with nasal and full face CPAP masks as well as reduce nasal bridge irritation caused by CPAP masks.
A CPAP user may experience pain and discomfort on and around the bridge of the nose or other areas of their face associated with using nasal CPAP masks or full face CPAP masks. These occurrences may be attributed to over tightening the CPAP headgear straps or using a CPAP mask that doesn?t have a good overall fit. Every CPAP user has different facial structures as well as different skin textures and finding the right CPAP mask is like buying a comfortable fitting pair of shoes; it takes patience and good advice.
The Gecko Nasal Pad is used much like a shoe insert or foam insole. The shoes you own may fit pretty good but they feel more comfortable when you put a nice pair of inserts inside of them. The same theory applies to this product line in that it acts as cushion between the CPAP user's face and their CPAP mask.
The protective polymer gel pad is hypoallergenic, latex and silicone fee and with proper care can be used multiple times. The product was designed to be placed as shown in the instructions across the bridge of the nose. Each person?s face is different so take your time and place the pad on your face so that it covers the affected areas where you are experiencing discomfort or leaks then place the mask over the pad and tighten the straps on the CPAP mask. Don?t over tighten the straps but insure that they are applying enough pressure to provide a seal with no air leaking around the pad or your CPAP mask.
