Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is the first company that developed an oral mask. The Oracle HC452 delivers air pressure only through a mouthpiece. The mask has been clinically proven to treat OSA and offers a viable alternative to a full face mask, with less structure against the face.
Here is how the Oracle works:
The mouthpiece comes in two sizes and is placed behind the lips and in front of the teeth. An outside flap is then fitted into the mouthpiece and folded over the lips. This combination keeps the device stable in the mouth and has been redesigned without the inner flap of the earlier design, which rested on the tongue
Out of Box Solution. All Fisher & Paykel masks come fully assembled and ready to wear so there is no fumbling or confusion.
Bias Diffuser. The Oracle mask has an exhalation vent design of a series of small holes and uses a filter to help reduce noise. The mask comes with five filters.
Rotating Adjustment Dial. This dial adjusts the space between the SnapFlap Cover and SoftSeal mouthpiece to increase comfort and stability and can be used after the mask has been fitted into the mouth. This is an upgrade to the earlier design of the Oracle.
Single Strap Easy-Release Headgear. One strap around the back of the head keeps the Oracle stable and a swivel in the front of the mask allows free rotation of the CPAP hose.
The headgear is adjusted once, then easily removed with just a pull of the Easy-Release cord. No ongoing adjustments are needed.
Why might I need an oral face mask?
An individual who cannot breathe through their nose at all due to a severely deviated septum, nasal congestion or facial injury may find an oral delivery only preferable over a full face mask.
Oral masks deliver airflow only to the mouth. The nasal passage is closed with nose plugs. It is highly recommended to use a heated humidifier with an oral mask.
The manufacturer recommends that new patients purchase their devices, masks and initial accessories from a homecare company that can provide an individualized patient equipment setup, clinical and after-sales support, and a program to assist patients with therapy success.
CPAP Clinic meets this set of requirements by providing you with the following services:

I have been going to the Dixie Road branch for more than a year and each time I am impressed by the prompt, patient and careful service provided by the CPAP clinic. I discovered them online last year and called them up and their response was encouraging and compassionate. I was very sleep deprived at the time! I went to the Dixie Road branch and got excellent service from them. I remember Rob Pierce in particular, who was incredibly patient with me and helped me find just the right mask! I went back to them this week for a replacement mask and their service was just as good!
