3M tape for Sleep Apnea--December Blog


3M Tapes are not just for hairpieces, wigs and toupees!
Did you know that our 3M Surgical Quality Medical Tapes can be used for Sleep Apnea masks?
Many sufferers of sleep apnea use our 3M clear tape to stop their mask from leaking. We have found that 3/4 and 1" width rolls work best and that it is important to apply the tape first to the face and then attach the mask.
Since the tape is thin, flexible, and works well with moisture and perspiration, you can be assured that your nights of waking up due to leaks will be eliminated.
The tape is also a perfect cure for people that have nose pillows in their mask. The tape is to be applied once the nose pillows are in your nose. Just cut a piece approx 5" and tape it around the nose pillows and up either side of your nose. The pillows should stay tight throughout the night without any annoying leaks.
Choosing between the rolls or the pre-cut strips is a matter of personal preference.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we will provide you with further information on tape usage
