Living with obstructive sleep apnea and snoring, as well as its resulting side-effects, is frustrating for many adults. This is especially true when you first start continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy and as your body adjusts to wearing a mask while you sleep. One of the common issues are nose bridge sores and skin irritation from daily use. Because facial sores can be embarrassing and painful, they sometimes dissuade people from their CPAP therapy altogether. It is important to follow your doctor’s orders, otherwise you can quickly compound medical risks and put your health in jeopardy. Silent Night Liners are designed to help people comply with their CPAP therapy.

Similar to wearing glasses for prolonged timeframes, the pressure of a CPAP mask on the bridge of your nose can cause irritation and unsightly, painful nose bridge sores. The CPAP mask can also cause a variety of skin irritations and red pressure marks.
Silent Night CPAP Mask Liners are designed to improve nose bridge comfort and may reduce the likelihood of facial and nose bridge sores.
• Increasing Comfort – When you combine the challenges of CPAP therapy with pain from nose bridge or facial sores, it’s easy to see how this could impact your ability to get a good night’s sleep. Over time, many users admit to discontinuing their therapy as a result. Using the soft and cushioned mask liner can improve nose bridge comfort and may reduce the likelihood of facial and nose bridge sores.
• Easing Headgear Tension – Without a Silent Night liner, users often become desperate for their masks to seal and will tighten and re-tighten the straps of their headgear in an attempt to create a proper seal. This can lead to excessive mask tension, increasing nose irritation. This excessive tension then leads to red pressure marks on your face, skin irritation and nose bridge sores. With our cushioned liner and enhanced seal, less strap and headgear pressure is often necessary, reducing the risk of developing pressure marks, irritations and sores.
Please note: Silent Night Liners are designed to improve nose bridge comfort and may also help prevent the occurrence of nose bridge sores. Silent Night liners are only to be used with intact skin. Do not use on open wounds, blistered or infected skin.
