Tap PAP - CPAP therapy without headgear
The Tap PAP is a nasal pillows CPAP mask that addresses two of the most common issues with CPAP masks - overburdening headgear, and leakage. The Tap PAP does away with traditional headgear, instead using a small mouthpiece to position the nasal pillows - and keep them in place throughout the night.
For some CPAP users, any form of headgear is problematic. By using a mouthpiece, the Tap PAP removes this. Instead, the heat and bite mouthpiece is moulded to your upper teeth, staying securely and comfortably in position without relying on headgear straps.
Another advantage of the mouthpiece design is that the upper jaw and nose are joined together - you cannot more one without the other. This means that once fitted, the Tap PAP stays fitted, with greatly reduced risks of dislodging or leakage during the night.
Fully adjustable, the Tap PAP works around you
The Tap PAP allows you the adjust the positioning and angle of the nasal pillows, allowing you to get it to fit just right. It uses a simple screw lock which, once set, will stay set for the night and for the foreseeable future. It can simply be readjusted at any time if required.
An optional headgear is available if preferred for a more traditional fit. This is used in conjunction with the mouthpiece, rather than in place of.
Both the nasal pillows and the mouthpiece can be replaced if and when required. The Tap PAP includes three sizes of nasal pillows as standard, Small, Medium and Large, for you to try and choose appropriately.
This product can only be used by patients that:
- Have at least 8 of their original permanent upper teeth
- Do not have any teeth positioned out of line with the others
- Do not wear removable dentures
- Do not have dental implants
- Do not have any loose crowns or fillings, or any broken or soft teeth
- Do not have permanent bridges on the upper teeth
If you do not meet all of the criteria above, then the Tap PAP would not be suitable for you. Please consider a conventional nasal pillows mask.

Down side blows cold air directly at partner, face or back, or on your own arm depends how you do sleep. Cannot find replacement mouth piece in the UK, you have to go to US and pay duty in the items into the UK. You wait months for a replacement on the NHS.
