Part Number: 1133376Brand: 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 is the new version of the DreamWear Mask which 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.
Small, Medium, Medium-Wide + Large Cushions
The headgear clips and mask cushion contain magnets
Some medical devices may be affected by magnetic fields. The magnetic clips in this mask should be kept at least 50 mm (2 inches) away from any active medical device with special attention to implanted devices, such as pacemakers, defibrillators and cochlear implants.
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 itt 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.
I've been an Amara View user for around five years and have been very happy with it - no mask is perfect, but the Amara was as good as it gets, for me.When I required a new part, my local heath service (Gloucestershire) informed me that the Amara was no longer available and that they would supply a new DreamWear Full Face mask, which I picked up a couple of days later.This mask is so noisy, it kept both me and my wife awake until, at about 3 a.m., I put my old Amara View back on. Ahh, welcome back old friend!I suspect that no-one, who actually has to wear this mask, has tried it in real life, or has ever had an alternative with which to compare it. In my opinion, the exhaust vents on the front of the mouthpiece are either too small, or too few in number to cope with the amount of air pressure I require. In its defense, the seal around the mouth and nose is good and I like the hose attachment at the top of the head, allowing unrestricted head movement when wearing. The magnetic clips seem to work well too.In summary, maybe if you're able to use PAP at less than around 7 (Philips Respironics Remstar), the noise might be bearable. But, buy with caution, this isn't going to work for everyone.

Judging by your review you didn't purchase the mask from us, but you are still welcome to contact us for help. If the mask is noisy like you describe then it's either fitted incorrectly or you have been given the wrong size (see the other genuine reviews too). The side frame is as important size-wise as the mask cushion. I personally use this mask with a BiPAP pressure of 25 and it's very quiet. Don't hesitate to contact us. Kath
I breath through my mouth, so this mask was a good choice. Also, not knowing what size mask I would need meant buying the multi-size option meant I could experiment and get it right. The hose coming out of the top of the head means no tangling when turning over. A1 can't fault.
As long term user of cpap I am always looking for different masks.This mask is great. Fits well. Comfortable. Does not make loud noises ie burps when leaks. Seems to leak less often. My nose occasionally gets sore so I change to regular mask on occasions to give nose a rest. I am very happy with mask. Only question is how long will mask last before needs replacing? So far very impressed
Good to hear the new mask is going well, and regarding your question about how long it will last.....the good thing about the DreamWear is that it's not necessary to replace the whole mask as every part can be replaced only as and when needed.
The mask I have bought off you is not doing the job, the top air hose leaks and keeps us awake, I am unable to fit the excellent swivel connector I use on my other face masks bought from you. please help the rest of the mask looks very good.

James, we've emailed and tried ringing but can't get hold of you. If you see this review please contact us 0300 102 9711 so that we can help.
Product was exactly as advertised and arrived on due delivery date.
This mask has a lot going for it. The magnetic harness fastenings, the hose fitting on top of the head rather from the mask itself and the comfort are marvelous and I was excited to buy it and looked forward to wearing it. However, despite every effort - including changing pillows - I simply could not get it it to stop leaking around the cheek seals.I found the experience of using this mask disappointing but I suspect this is a problem with my anatomy rather than the mask itself. Like everything else it's a case of trial and error but, of course, this can become an expensive business.

Sorry to hear this Derek, and please feel free to book an appointment to see how we can help you further.
This is what I call a life changer. Could never get a mask to fit properly and always getting large leaks and high AHI readings. Have used this mask now for 2 weeks, 100% mask fit every night and highest AHI was 2. So happy and awake
That's great to hear Greg, as makes such a difference when people find the 'right' mask for them 🙂
Minimalist full face mask with an innovative nasal cushion design. The Resmed Liberty was always one of my favourite masks this is like an AirFit version of it. Not the easiest mask to put on but worth the effort.I have thrown all of my other masks away!
Lovely to hear this Ian 🙂
Diagnosed with OSA in March this year. After trying several masks I discovered Amara view which was good apart from needing mask liners which were expensive and not 100% effective. Recently in hospital for major surgery and while in ITU my O2sats were low overnight meaning having to have O2 administered via their C60 CPap which sounded like a jumbo jet engine. Suggested they contacted the sleep apnoea clinic for advice and discovered that O2 can be delivered with the new dreamwear full face mask as the hose had an optional O2 inlet valve. Still needing Xylimelts despite having humidifier but this mask is not as "drying". A wonderful discovery and fantastic to have a quiet nights sleep. Hope this review helps others.

Good to the hear you've found a mask that suits your needs. Interestingly, I also found the Amara View caused more dry mouth than my DreamWear Full Face does, even though I do like the mask. Kath
At first I struggled with the noise on the mask, but after getting a humidifier from my sleep clinic this resolved this issue. Also I wonder if I should have a nasal cushion as the mask does not fit as well as I would like under my nostrils.
That's an interesting tip regarding the humidifier, as I had no problem with noise but do use a humidifier always. Kath
