CPAP side effects differ from one person to another. Probably the most common CPAP side effect is discomfort caused by the mask itself. Everyone has reported “red marks” on their face or soreness on the bridge of their nose. This is usually caused by the headgear straps being too tight. To compensate for this particular side effect, a variety of masks are being developed. There are also mask pads available or masks that only attach at the nostrils.
