A Nasal prong CPAP mask is the most lightweight type of CPAP mask. The headgear for nasal prong masks is worn on the crown of the head. The prongs of the mask rest in the nostrils and inflate slightly in order to create a seal. Nasal prong masks are non-restrictive, but they may cause irritation and dryness in some users.
