Part Number: 1133375Brand: Philips Respironics
The long-awaited version of the DreamWear Mask is now available for mouth breathers, and there is also some compatibility with the parts of the DreamWear Nasal Mask, should a person occasionally need to switch over from nasal to full face and vice versa.
This is a brand new mask so we eagerly await reviews, but after trials ourselves, we're expecting them to be positive. Time will tell......

This DreamWear Mask is suitable for mouth breathers, who can now benefit from the great features the original DreamWear brought to the market, such has having the hose connected at the top of the head rather than hanging below the mask. Philips Respironics describe it as "like wearing nothing at all" and certainly compared to full face masks in general, it really is a light-weight mask.
"Like wearing nothing at all.
By moving the tube location to the top of the head, DreamWear Full Face offers more freedom of movement during the night. Users stated they didn't need to choose a sleeping position when wearing DreamWear Full Face.
The under-the-nose, innovative design of the cushion means no more red marks, discomfort and irritation on the nose bridge.
Open design makes it easy to wear glasses, read, watch TV and use a computer or tablet before falling asleep.
The soft, flexible frame is comfortable to wear at night. Users have said that it feels like wearing nothing at all.
The modular design allows users to choose the cushion that works best for them, all on one frame.
Only a few parts for easy assembly, disassembly and cleaning.
There are 2 options for purchase - you can either select the FitPack which contains all the mask cushions to ensure you obtain the correct size, or if you're confident of what size you require you can simply purchase the size of cushion you require.
It is highly recommended when purchasing the mask for the first time that you do go for the 'FitPack' so that you have the opportunity to try all the sizes.
Small, Medium, Medium-Wide + Large Cushions
If a different size of Mask Frame is needed, these can be purchased separately by clicking on THIS LINK and just like the headgear, over time it will stretch and a new frame can make a huge difference without the need to purchase the full mask. In fact all parts of the mask can be purchased only as and when required.
If a person lays on their side and closes off one side of the tubing, will the mask still provide therapy? Will it create a pressure spike?
The mask will continue to provide the prescribed therapy. Every other mask on the market operates with one tube running to the cushion and this mask operates in the same way. No increase of pressure or noise will occur.
With the tubing right next to the ear, will DreamWear Full Face be noisier than other masks?
From a sound level perspective, the DreamWear Full Face mask is a quiet full face mask. However, since the airflow is located closer to the ears with this design and not routing downward in front of the patient, some people may notice the airflow noise more than a traditional mask. For most patients the experience is quiet and comfortable with the unique design offering more freedom of movement. However, since this is such a different design, it may take some people some time to get use to the difference in the noise. It’s not louder - simply different. (We at Hope2Sleep noticed the 1st night of use the mask did sound louder, but after a few nights the noise seemed to disappear!).
There are 3 sizes of frames. How do I choose the right size?
Always start with the medium frame. If the mask is too small, the frame will sit too close to the eyes. If the mask is too big, it will sit too close to the ears. Please refer to the quick start guide or instructions manual for pictures and a thorough description. In most cases, it will be obvious if a different size frame is needed. However, if there are leaks at night or the mask seems to move too much, a different size frame and/or cushion should be tried.
How do I clean the mask?
If you remove the headgear, cushion and swivel, the frame is essentially one tube. This can be cleaned the same way the short tubing on other masks or the longer CPAP tubing is cleaned. Wash with warm soapy water, it can be rinsed through the swivel connection as well. Set to dry and if there happens to be any remaining moisture in the tube before therapy is started, connecting it to the CPAP with pressure can help to remove this. The mask may also be cleaned in the dishwasher once a week. The non-fabric parts can be washed on the top shelf of the dishwasher and air dried. Please refer to the instructions manual that came with the mask.
What are the cushion sizes? Does it size the same as DreamWear under the nose nasal cushions? Does it size the same as Amara View?
DreamWear Full Face cushions come in four sizes: small, medium, large, and medium-wide. The full face cushion, whilst covering both the nose and mouth, is sized based on the nasal opening, just like the under-the-nose cushions. The nasal opening is the exact same design and shape as the DreamWear under the nose cushion which means, there is a direct correlation between DreamWear full face and DreamWear under-the-nose sizing – a medium in the full face is a medium in the nasal, etc. However, the DreamWear full face nasal opening is a different design and shape than the Amara View opening and the two masks size differently. Therefore, there is not a direct correlation between DreamWear full face and Amara View.
How can you tell the difference between cushion and frame sizes?
The cushion indicator is on the front of the cushion next to the arrow that points to the arrow on the frame for the connection. The frame size indicator is on the top of the frame behind the elbow connection.
Why are there 2 exhalation ports?
The split exhalation design enables the exhalation airflow to be dispersed and therefore isn’t as strong coming from just 1 exhalation port.
What mask does this replace?
DreamWear Full Face is our premium full face mask offering. It is not intended to replace any Philips mask.
The headgear clips and mask cushion contain magnets
As of August 2022, Philips Respironics is updating its existing contraindications and warnings to the following:
Contraindication: Use of the mask is contraindicated for patients and their household members, caregivers, and bed partners that may be in close vicinity to patients using the masks, that have implanted devices that may be affected by magnets, including but not limited to:
Warning: Magnets with a magnetic field strength of 400 mT are used in the mask. With the exception of the devices identified in the contraindication, ensure the mask is kept at least 6 inches (approx. 15.24 cm) away from any other medical implants or medical devices that can be impacted by the magnetic fields to avoid possible effects from localized magnetic fields. This includes household members, caregivers, and bed partners that may be in close vicinity to patients that use the masks.

My experience of the Dreamwear FFM has been good so far, with few leaks or morning face marks. The choice of separate frame and mask/cushion sizes made for a great deal of flexibility in getting a good fit. Also the hose connection on top of the frame (i.e. your head), makes for easier movement and less dragging when in bed (particularly with a hose lift and hose cover). The mask seems lighter, more pliable and wears closer to the face than many of the full(er) face mask alternatives - no sense of a bit of furniture clamped to your face! Iíve experience consistently low nightly leak levels using this mask, probably because there is none of the drag from the weight of a hose connection on the front.It does vent from both the top of the frame Ďswivelí as well as from the cushion/mask - initially I thought this was a big leak! It takes some time to get used to the little tornado kicking off at the top of your head, but it does mean a reduced vent flow round the face. The face mask vents are directed more downward and outward, so away from your eyes; while the vents on the top direct upwards away from your head. The vents also act to diffuse the expelled airflow and reduce noise, but because of this I found it difficult to distinguish between the deliberately vented air and minor mask leaks when feeling around the mask for leaks. I also found that using my humidifier with its more moisture laden air, dampened the noise considerably in both the mask and frame.Head straps are adjusted by velcro (at four points) and the two straps to the actual mask part are held in place by magnetic catches rather the hooks. These are strong enough to positively self-locate if brought near the mask attachment points - they latch on very quickly and securely. Iíve had no issues with these coming undone when sleeping. I found I donít have to tighten the straps that much to maintain a good seal through the night, so not had any problems with face marks in the morning. People who have implanted medical devices are advised to seek guidance before using masks with magnetic attachments.Masks are obviously very personal items, where comfort and fit are crucial (and usually non-returnable if not!). I went down to H2Ss office to get one fitted, cost of trip easily offset by the likely cost of getting it wrong. Natalie is able to Ďsize you upí and point you in the direction of the best candidates and let you try out various sample masks. They have a bed setup to allow you to try these out while lying down. Ideally bring your own machine (and possibly pillows?) to see how it works at your pressures and preferred sleeping position Öand book ahead!

Thanks for another thorough review Alistair which will help many others in their mission to find a suitable mask. It's good you were able to travel to us too and be fitted properly for the correct mask and size. Was nice to meet you too 😊
I was originally given a Resmed nasal mask, which was quite difficult to get a good fit, it was either too tight or it leaked badly. After buying this with the fit pack, the leaks have improved and so has my sleep.

Good to hear you've found the 'right' mask for you 😊
Since switching to the Dreamwear full face I have been relieved and delighted with a reduced number of nightly episodes. I am also pleased with the design which is comfortable and practical for someone who turns in their sleep quite a lot!
We're always pleased to hear when people find a more suitable mask, as with the best CPAP machine in the world, if the mask isn't the 'right one' and comfortable, it lowers our therapy.
I started with my prescribed "Dam Busters" type mask and found it very awkward. I have tried slightly different designs of full face masks but the Dream Wear is by far the best for me. Comfortable, good seal, air tube system avoids tangles.
So pleased to hear this Christopher as it's certainly a challenge for us all to find the 'right' mask, as the one that works best is not the same for everyone.
I am a side sleeper and really struggle with tubing disconnecting when I move. This mask solves that. The clever design puts the tube connector on top of your head, feeding the air down 2 silicone tubes to a mask that sits comfortably over your mouth and beneath your nose, which pushes gently up to form a seal around your nostrils. I am using a medium with medium headgear and for me itís perfect. It has kept a great seal even when I turn over and is very light and comfortable. Took a bit of adjusting but once you have it really is fantastic!
Great to hear 😊
Very adjustable mask with easy fixing magnetic clips.
I have given this mask a good trial and have decided itís not one that suits me. I like the top of head connector, the soft side air flow tubing and the low volume mask profile. However, the mask is soft and flexes with side sleeping and the airflow hole small even for large mask I felt the mask material sucked up against my nostrils. It also was subject to frequent air leaks. I got used to the airflow noise which overtime is no different to my Amara full face mask which I prefer as the nasal airflow hole is much better shape. The downside to the Amara is the upward air vents so will now try the FP Evora with its down vents to see whether that will become my ideal maskÖ
Yes it really can be a challenge for us all getting the 'right' mask to suit our individual faces, and although the DreamWear is a very popular mask, we're also getting excellent reviews of the Evora so fingers crossed that one will suit you 🤞 In fact with you saying the softness didn't suit you with the DreamWear, you may find the Evora does turn out better for you as it has extra support.
As usual Hope 2 sleep came up with the goods. If you have this CPAP machine, this kit fits perfectly. Would recommend.
A really good experience, probably takes a couple of nights to get use to it, and the correct adjustment of the straps to get a good seal. Otherwise its really good and easy to use.
I like most things about this mask. the port at the top of the head is very sensible and it also is extremely light on my face because the lack of Tube around the front of the face. I like the fact that you have two tubes one either side of your head, so one may get blocked but the other will have a free flow. however I felt that the noise was something I couldn't get used to. If I persevered with that I'm sure it will be a perfect mask but after about 3 days I was about ready to give up. Might retry one day.
Thanks for a thorough review Wayne with the positives. Hope you do go back to the mask again as amazingly after a few nights most of us don't even hear it as we become desensitised to it.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before making a payment. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.
If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges incurred.
Important for International Orders
We can ship most products internationally, but all prices are in UK British Pounds and if paying by debit or credit card the bank will automatically convert to the current conversation rate. Likewise, if you choose the Paypal option, they will convert into your currency for you as payment is made.
International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any delays at Customs at your end, or charges that may be added in your own country, such as customs fees and import tax on delivery, which are determined by your country’s import laws and are beyond our control. Therefore, it is the customer’s responsibility to pay these charges, and certain courier companies will not be able to deliver the goods to you without pre-payment of any charges. From our experience, it appears to be randomised as to which parcels incur extra charges, but please know that all accompanying paperwork is filled in correctly when shipping and there is nothing more we can do, as much as we'd like to.If you purchase from us out of the UK or you move to another country after purchasing products, please be aware that the warranty for CPAP machines, masks and parts from the manufacturers are under warranty with the manufacturer based in the UK, so you will be responsible for sending the product back to us and will need to pay postage to get the product back to you after exchange or repair, as the manufacturer will not pay for shipping in any country outside of the UK.
Masks, CPAP machines and and most other products are exempt from a refund or exchange unless faulty due to health and hygiene issues - as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions', and in particular due to the risk of cross contamination as they cannot be re-sold.
