Side Sleeping with CPAP – Here’s How You Do It

Are you a side sleeper? While this didn’t used to affect how your nightly routine went, when you mix CPAP into the equation, it certainly can change things. But just how many of us are sleeping on our sides?

A recent nationwide survey that was conducted aimed to find out how common side sleeping was, and the results found that 74% of people sleep on their side during the night as the preferred sleeping position. In short, roughly two-thirds of people using a CPAP mask will at some point find it annoying because they rolled over onto their side, disturbing airflow and comfort.

How to Side Sleep with Sleep Apnea

We get it. You didn’t sign up for sleep apnea. Nobody wants this condition. But you should pat yourself on the back for taking measures to actively treat sleep apnea. Doing so offers a myriad of immediate health benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked. Now on to the goods: What can you do to more effectively side sleep with sleep apnea?

Well you have two options to consider and either can help you get a better night’s sleep while enabling you to sleep on your side (as you’ve grown accustomed to doing). So, let’s break down the best option you have for side sleeping with CPAP.  

The Nasal Pillow

While this isn’t the preferred mask of choice for some CPAP users, it’s ideal for side sleepers, and is designed for those who do not want to deal with the headgear that’s associated with a full face mask. A nasal pillow CPAP mask is designed similar to the full face mask, but has fewer attachments and does not cover your entire nose and mouth.

A nasal pillow CPAP mask for side sleepers sits just under your nostrils, providing steady airflow all night. It’s connected to your head with a comfort gel band and the hose goes in the middle of the nasal pillow. This unique design ensures that you can enjoy side sleeping as often as you like. However, it should be noted that the nasal pillow isn’t as sturdy an option for side sleepers, which is why we still highly recommend the full face mask.

But if you like the unobtrusive nature of the nasal pillow mask, we’ve got you covered with plans that start at just $33/month with free shipping and that come with our signature 30-day Fitmask™ Guarantee.

Full Face Mask

The very best recommendation for side sleepers with sleep apnea is to consider upgrading the type of mask that you are using. Since masks can have differing placements and locations for the hoses, finding the one that helps you enjoy those snuggly side sleeping moments is critical to your success. In enters the full-face CPAP mask.

These masks are designed to not budge while you are sleeping, and they wrap nicely for a snug fit that ensures that mask won’t shift around or become cumbersome during your snooze session. What’s more, the hoses connect to the front of the mask, just beneath the mouthpiece, giving you complete regulation of your airflow via nasal passages and your oral cavity.

Yep, these masks won’t budge, they’ll let you sleep while breathing through your mouth or nose, they also help reduce dryness and chaffing, and the hose connects to the middle of the mask. It’s almost like they were intentionally designed for side sleepers.

Just select the Full Face plan when you join, and get everything you need, including the mask, headgear, frame, hoses, filters, cushion and tubing as well as free shipping and 30-day Fitmask™ Guarantee for just $37/month with free shipping.
