Testimonials"I have used a progression of CPAP, BiPAP and VPAP machines, coupled with just about every mask marketed over the last 14 years, with mixed (at best) results. Currently I do best with a variable pressure machine delivering between 15 and 25 cm O2. No matter what design of mask I have tried, there is a lot of annoying blow-by. I had doubts that any design utilizing nasal pillows would work at the high pressures I need. I had tried nasal pillows in the past and they literally blew off my face. But this mask flat works. I can't believe how secure it fits, how quiet it is, and how well it seals around my nares, without any headstraps and with just light pressure against my nose. It does not stimulate my gag reflex at all. It is about the most effective and non-irritating solution I could imagine." Pat Beug
"In my bedroom closet, I have a box filled with at least 25 discarded masks. Do not hesitate, buy this mask today. It is absolutely terrific. I know, I have tried them all. Over the past ten years, every time a new mask would come out, I would buy it, hoping that it might be the one mask that would actually work for me. Every one was uncomfortable, they leaked, and more often than not, I would pull my mask off in the middle of the night. I hated them all. On a whim, I skeptically purchased the TAP PAP, and I can say without hesitation that this is the single best interface on the market today. Not only does it work well, I actually say without hesitation that, for the first time, I actually LOVE my mask. Perhaps the most important aspect of this mask is the fact that my CPAP compliance is, for the first time, nearly 100%. Because of this mask, I am now getting the most from my CPAP therapy for the first time in ten years. Molding the mouthpiece is a breeze. Once properly fitted, the mouthpiece hardens, and actually snaps right into place. The mouthpiece stays in place all night, it is unobtrusive, and there are no annoying straps wrapped around my head. Best of all, it is extremely comfortable to wear. This product is revolutionary. If you are a side sleeper, a restless sleeper, or you haven't found headgear that works for you, you must give this mask a try. Again, I have tried virtually every mask on the market, and none of the can hold a candle to the TAP PAP. Buy it today! George - Iowa"
"...When I saw the TAP PAP I thought I might be a solution to my problems....and I was right! This mask is SO much better than the Swift II. I will say that it does take a couple of night to get use to the mouthpiece and I did have to refit (as the instructions cover) once to get it just right, but now I can honestly say I don't even realize I have a mask at time. This mask is nearly silent as you inhale or exhale. The pillow absolutely will not move once you have it in place..."

"First of all, I really hesitate to call the TAP PAP a mask but that's the only term I can think of to describe it conveniently. However, this is the most amazing CPAP mask I've ever used. The stability of the mask comes from the mouthpiece that is custom formed easily by the user. This holds the mask in place, even if your bottom teeth are not in contact with the mouthpiece.
THIS MASK DOES NOT LEAK. I am a side sleeper and my nasal pillow mask would generally leak when the side of the mask came in contact with the bed pillow. With the TAP PAP, there's no mask "harness" to come in contact with the bed pillow… YOU WILL NOT BE CONSTANTY ADJUSTING THE MASK THROUGH THE NIGHT. There's no undue pressure under your nose. There are no sore nasal openings in the morning.
Several times during my trial, when I awaken, I CANNOT FEEL THE MASK ON MY FACE. It's that light and unobtrusive.
I am sleeping ALL NIGHT LONG without being awakened by a leaking mask. I'm feeling better rested when I get up in the morning and have gotten up several times during my trial of this mask before my alarm went off.
My wife likes it because it is so quiet…"

"...I sleep like a rock and there are no annoying air leaks, no strap marks on my face or smashed and tangled hair! And since its like wearing a mouth guard, I can't grind my teeth in my sleep and wake up with a sore jaw! I thought it was going to be weird trying to sleep with something in my mouth but it was surprising easy and no big deal..."

"... This mask is absolutely stable - even without the headband. The nasal pillows are also extremely comfortable and the exhaust port is much more gentle than my previous mask. Highly recommended."

"Outstanding news this afternoon! I have been on CPAP since last September but it didn't work very well, The mask was terrible and the head gear was unbearable. In desperation I visited my ENT and he recommended the TAP PAP Nasal Pillow Mask. It's a CPAP mask that is anchored on the upper teeth with nasal pillows fed by the air hose. I've been on it for a month. Over the weekend I wore a monitor for two nights. I saw the Doctor today and my sleep apnea is CURED while I sleep with the device. I have been sleeping all night with only an occasional interruption for a month. The monitoring device that I wore Saturday night and last night showed no apnea at all. I am PSYCHED. Thank you Dr. Thornton for your brilliance and invention." Mike Crognale - TAP PAP NPM User
“…This product caught my eye because it used the upper teeth to anchor the device. Since I have been wearing a dentist provided "Night Guard" for teeth grinding for many years, I knew this was something I could easily adjust to. Secondly, getting rid of straps and the movement of the pillows allowed me to successfully use a nasal pillow device. After 3 or so nights of getting the adjustments right, I'll never go back to another style mask...In summary, this is the best mask I have ever owned. It's very comfortable after adjusting, strap free, and great for naturally opening your airway (I have allergies!). This is my new "go to" mask!"
