CPAP pillows can really help tackle mask issues!
#1
At the suggestion of a forum advisor (chill), I just wanted to write about what a godsend a sleep apnea pillow can be if you're having troubles with mask leak or other comfort issues while sleeping on your side, like I used to have.

For anyone who hasn't seen one, they are specially shaped pillows with cutouts for your mask. Most come with a matching pillow cover for washing. Your mask hangs off the edge of the pillow while your head remains supported. They can be stuffed like a traditional pillow or made out of memory foam. I personally found the memory foam version too hard and it still tended to knock my mask off. I've had my filled pillow for years now, and it was a game-changer for me. If you Google "sleep apnea pillows" in Google images, you can see all sorts of available designs.

This is a picture of the pillow that looks closest to what I use:

Mine was about $50. I've seen versions that are much cheaper - like $15 - but I worried that they weren't as well made or supportive.

I hope this helps some of you! All the best!

I too purchased one of those. Mine is somewhat similar yet different. Has a cool side and a soft ( fuzzy) side. Gives support all the way to the edge so you can hang your mask off the edge and still have support. Mine was 60.00. They are not cheap but worth every penny.
Dont-know  I am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay
