Full Face CPAP Masks

A full-face CPAP mask is a type of sleep apnea mask that covers both the nose and mouth, providing a continuous stream of pressurized air to keep the airway open during sleep. It offers a comprehensive solution for individuals who breathe through their mouth or experience nasal congestion that requires mouth-breathing.
