However, in the event you have specific struggles with using CPAP, or have specific needs above and beyond the typical user, you do have options. 


Disclaimer: There are many dozens of products that can help CPAP users have a better therapy experience. We cannot review or feature them all here. The best products for our patients are the ones that best serve their needs and work for them. Products featured here constitute examples (three in each category, whenever possible) which are based on online customer reviews, but do not necessarily constitute product endorsements by Sound Sleep Health. 

10 CPAP accessories you might want to look into

1. CPAP pillows

Using one of these can help CPAP users achieve more comfort if they are typical side sleepers, as the pillow design provides allowance for the headgear and mask parts that might otherwise protrude into the pillow once the sleeper turns to the right or left side.

2. Heated tubing insulators

Placing an insulating sleeve around the CPAP hose, especially when you're using heated tubing, can help defend against problems with rainout, especially if you tend to keep your room cooler at night.

3. Tubing lifts

Keeping your CPAP tubing out of the way may be a priority for you, especially if you have limited space along the sides of your bed, frequent "visitors" (pets and children), or a sleepmate. These products help stow unused lengths of hose out of the way while you sleep.

4. Eye shields

Some people struggle with air leaks that can irritate their eyes. Usually this is a problem related to mask fit or style. However, if you've tried many different kinds of masks and cannot find relief, you might opt for one of these products.

There are many different kinds of mask liners you can use to cut down on red marks and pressure sores if, after multiple mask fittings and trials, you can't seem to avoid them.

9. SoClean CPAP sterilizing system

There's only one of its kind available right now, but for those who want to have ease in cleaning CPAP and confidence in the sterilization of equipment with every use, this option can't be beat.

10. Portable CPAP machine

These can be very handy for people who travel a great deal, experience frequent power outages where they live, or spend a lot of time overnight while outdoors. Two machines make up this market, and they both have distinct features.

Always seek help from your durable medical equipment (DME) provider first before investing in products to ensure you actually need them. Many CPAP comfort issues can be fixed through mask trials and refitting. Sound Sleep Health has an onsite DME provider who can help you with all your comfort issues.

Sometimes, however, all the adjustments in the world don't resolve certain issues, which is the reason why some of these products were developed. As you browse these products, don't hesitate to ask the DME about them if any interest you. They may already have many of these items in stock or could order them for you.
