    • Disposal: Your mask may be disposed in the general waste

    • Use Life: The TAP PAP mask has a minimum use life of 6 months.

    • Shelf Life: There is no claim made on shelf life, as the materials used are stable at the stated storage temperature range.

  2. The angle of each Pillow may be adjusted individually to suit the angle of your nostrils. To do this, grab the Pillow at its base and rotate.
