Designed for All-Night Comfort and Relief
Made of high-quality odorless memory foam, this contoured pillow maintains its shape for a long period of time. The memory foam material also provides just the right level of firmness, perfect for back, stomach, and side sleepers. Use this orthopedic anti-snoring pillow for comfortable head, neck, and cervical spine support, leaving you well-rested and ache-free in the morning. Whether you use a CPAP machine or not, this pillow will hold your head, neck, and shoulders effectively to help improve cervical posture, reducing pain and strains.
How Does This Contoured Pillow Work With a CPAP Machine?
The shape of this anti-snoring pillow was designed specifically with CPAP machine users in mind. On the bottom, the outer corners of the pillow are dipped wedges made to hold the tubing of the CPAP machine in place to reduce air leakage, uncomfortable placement, red lines, and dry eyes. Using this memory foam pillow, you can rest comfortably on your side or stomach overnight with your mask.
Using This Orthopedic Side Sleeper Pillow for Neck and Shoulder Pain Relief
This side sleeper pillow is perfect for you if you’ve been experiencing shoulder, neck, or upper back pain due to your sleeping habits. The wedges on the bottom edges of the firm pillow allow you to place your hands or shoulders where you wish to sleep comfortably on your side or stomach without the pain that would normally follow in the morning. The pillow contours to the natural curves of your cervical spine to help improve posture as you sleep, resulting in relief from aches and pains in your neck and shoulders.
Sleeping with a CPAP Pillow vs The Traditional Pillow
So what exactly is the difference between using this CPAP pillow in place of a traditional pillow? Using the CPAP pillow allows for a comfortable full night's sleep with benefits, such as:
- Prevents air leakage
- Odorless materials
- Better overall sleep
- Spinal comfort
- Improves cervical posture
In turn, using a traditional pillow will cause you to experience aches and pains in your cervical pain due to sleeping in an incorrect, misaligned posture angle. If you use a CPAP machine, using a traditional pillow also makes you prone to mask dislodgement, uncomfortable positioning, and air leakage, which is sure to disrupt your sleep.
What Are the Benefits of Using a CPAP Machine?
Using a CPAP machine can make a huge difference in your sleeping schedule and your everyday life. CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy is the leading treatment for sleep apnea. Using a CPAP machine keeps your airway open by gently providing air through a mask you wear while you sleep overnight, eliminating breathing issues. There are many benefits correlated with using a CPAP machine for those who struggle to sleep through the night, such as:
- Snoring prevention
- Reducing your risk of a stroke
- Improved emotional stability
- Diabetes prevention
- Staying alert throughout the day and while driving
- Improved concentration
- Reducing your risk of heart disease
If you’re struggling with sleeping apnea due to snoring or other breathing issues as you sleep, try using a CPAP machine to effectively improve your sleep quality. Using a CPAP machine along with the contoured pillow will ensure your mask doesn’t experience any leaks and keeps your neck and shoulders in a proper, comfortable position.

Just what I needed
Pillow works for me as a side sleeper. When sleeping with this pillow, my full-face CPAP mask doesn't get squished into the pillow and doesn't fall off. Thanks
Not happy with pillow
Pillow was not thick enough. I had one prior to purchasing this pillow and it was good and had better padding.
The area for your mask is nice, but the pillow is too flat and on the smaller side. I ended up going back to my other pillow.
