The latest and greatest among CPAP masks has arrived in the form of Bleep DreamPorts. What the bleep? Yes, Bleep DreamPorts seem odd until you begin to understand why this revolutionary design will keep you from counting sheep; hence the name. It eliminates the need for chinstraps, headgear, and leaves zero red marks all while maintaining the highest standard of CPAP therapy. Intrigued? Keep reading.
What Is the Bleep DreamPort CPAP Mask?
The Bleep DreamPort CPAP Mask was created by Stuart Heatherington, founder of Bleep and Head of Product Design. He’s a pioneer in the sleep industry and has secured “approximately 15 sleep apnea product patents during the course of his [30-year] career.” What makes his newest FDA-approved acquisition so unique and enticing is that the Bleep DreamPort is the closest thing to a no-mask CPAP solution on the market today.
Traditional CPAP masks require additional supplies, and patients are often comfortable, even complaining of claustrophobia as a result. Bleep Dreamports use adhesive patches to stay in place like Band-Aids, so your Bleep DreamPorts will never come undone if you toss and turn throughout the night.
Are DreamPorts the Same as Nasal Pillows?
Nasal pillow CPAP masks are really only similar to the Bleep DreamPort in the sense that they push the airflow through your nose. Bleep DreamPorts do not physically enter the nasal cavity, and yet you still get the maximum amount of sleep therapy.
Bleep DreamPort adhesive conforms to your face, reducing air leaks and putting an end to returns. Not only does this keep you headgear free, it also means your CPAP mask will fit perfectly the first time, every time. Plus, you can sleep in any position; side, back, stomach, even snuggling with your bed partner. That’s a win-win.
Silicone and latex are a thing of the past. In fact, Bleep DreamPorts are hypoallergenic. Not to mention, the adhesive facial pads come in a 16-night supply and should be disposed of after each use. Aside from your CPAP machine and CPAP tubing, you won’t have to worry about a cleaning schedule anymore either.
What Are the Benefits of Using DreamPorts?
Bleep DreamPreps have also revolutionized CPAP hygiene. DreamPreps are wipes soaked in witch-hazel instead of alcohol, designed by Bleep to clean your nose prior to use. Now, both your airways and your pores will be thanking you when you use Bleep DreamPorts.
No Mask, No Headgear, No Red Marks
And we’ll say it again: there’s no traditional CPAP mask, no headgear, and no red marks. The Bleep DreamPort sleep solution is independent of all that, and it’s one size fits all. That’s right; adhesive strips means your facial features no longer determine if you can wear your CPAP mask. Ladies, you don’t need to worry about irritated skin, and guys, grow that facial hair like a man. This is what makes the Bleep DreamPort such a game changer in the world of CPAP.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re wondering when the sales pitch will end and when the nitty gritty questions will start to be answered, look no further. We have a handful of FAQs ready to convince you that Bleep DreamPorts aren’t too good to be true:
- Will DreamPorts work w/ my CPAP machine?
Yes, Bleep DreamPorts are compatible with any CPAP or BiPAP machine.
- How do you put on DreamPorts?
Start by making sure your nose is clean; you want to get the bridge of your nose, upper lip, and sides of your cheeks. Do not use soap. The lotions in soap cause the adhesive to deteriorate, so your DreamPorts will not be properly sealed and may come undone during the night. Instead, try Bleep DreamPreps.
Once you have used a Bleep DreamPrep, apply the DreamPort adhesive to the base of your nasal passage; one adhesive for each nostril. The connectors should be facing forward. If your connectors bow out or sit below 45°, reapply the adhesive, because the airflow will not be as direct and may cause mask leaks when there shouldn’t be any. Bleep recommends standing in front of the mirror when applying the DreamPorts the first few nights of use until you get comfortable.
Finally, connect your CPAP tubing to the connectors. These will work with any tube; including short tubes and heated tubing. After that, all you need to do is have a good night’s sleep.
