ResMed Chin Strap
ResMed CPAP Mask Chin Strap
This product does not require a prescription
The ResMed chin strap keeps the mouth closed when you are using a nasal or nasal pillow mask for CPAP therapy. The pressure delivered from your sleep apnea therapy device can cause the mouth to open, especially if you are prescribed a higher setting.
Air leaks severely reduce the effects of your prescribed CPAP therapy, causing you to wake up with a dry mouth, feeling tired, and needing more rest. Other options to consider for eliminating mouth breathing would be to try a full-face-style CPAP mask that covers the nose and the mouth. Waking with mouth dryness can be an indicator that your mouth is falling open during sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions
Everything you need to know about this ResMed CPAP mask headgear accessory.
What Is the Best CPAP Chin Strap?
As it is with CPAP supplies, it may all boil down to preference. But the best chin straps should provide these benefits:
These accessories are meant to support CPAP masks and machines. This means that these straps need to fit right to avoid any discomfort that may result in one stopping sleep apnea treatment.
These straps should work in tandem with CPAP machines and other sleep apnea treatment solutions. The AirSense 10 CPAP machine, for example, will not be able to bring out its full potential if the strap does not provide the necessary support. Mask compatibility is important too. A strap should never disrupt a mask’s main function of offering optimal sleep apnea treatment.
Simple to Use
As CPAP tool enhancements, these straps need to be easy to wear and use. It will defeat the purpose if one can’t properly wear a strap in the first place!
Aside from having straps being easy to wear or use, adjustability also needs to be factored in. Wearers need to have the chance to make simple and quick-fitting adjustments.
Keeps the Mouth Closed Safely
These strap enhancements were designed to help keep the mouth from opening during sleep. This also means that keeping the mouth shut needs to be done in a relaxed and less-intrusive manner, as well. Safety is always the highest priority in CPAP treatment supplies.
Do CPAP Chin Straps Work?
When it comes to keeping your mouth from opening, yes. But as a viable treatment for sleep apnea, no. These CPAP accessories are mainly meant as enhancements for CPAP machines, nasal mask models, and nasal pillow mask types.
How Do You Put a ResMed Chin Strap On?
This chin restraint uses a simple, single-strap design. The single-strap design fastens at the top of the head, allowing the strap to stay in place. A chin cup has also been integrated in the overall design, making the accessory comfortable to wear. Aside from the soft cloth cup, Velcro straps are included for quick-fitting adjustments.

I had a hard time with CPAP because I was a mouth-breather. This chinstrap does an excellent job!

I like my mask but i couldn't keep my mouth closed and would wake up dry. I tried a full face mask but hated it. My boss told me about this product and it works like a charm.
