The Original ComfortGel is the upgrade to the very popular Profile Lite Gel Mask. It has the same gel that can be boiled and custom fit to your face, but most people get a good fit from one of the four sizes without molding the gel.

This describes the type of mask, either: nasal, full face, nasal pillow, nasal prong, hybrid, oral, or total face.
This filter indicates if the mask comes with headgear included.
These masks offer replaceable cushions, pillows, or prongs. These unique CPAP Masks offer replaceable cushions as a low cost solution to keep your mask feeling and working like new.
Tired of adjusting your headgear every time you take your mask off during the night? Quick-Clips allow users to easily remove and replace the mask on your face without re-adjusting the headgear straps.
These masks come with a silicone-based gel cushion.
Some masks come with a forehead support as part of the mask design. Masks marked "yes" contain a forehead support, while masks marked "no" do not contain a forehead support.
|Mask Cushion Type|
This describes the type of mask cushion for the mask. These values are either cloth, foam, gel, or silicone. The foam and gel are usually both silicone based materials. The masks that are marked as "silicone" are without gel or foam.
|Multiple Sizes Included|
Indicates which masks come packaged with more than one cushion, pillow or prong. Masks can come packaged with ALL Sizes or a combination of sizes as a Fit Pack. This is ideal for users who have not tried the mask before and do not know the right size to select.
This property identifies masks that are ideal for small facial features. Any mask with a size petite or extra small will be marked 'Yes'. Nasal Pillow masks are ideal because they accommodate the size of the 'nare' or nasal openings, not the face.
The value will be marked 'Yes' for CPAP masks with interfaces that are unique to CPAP users with wide facial features. Masks with 'Wide' cushion sizes would fall under this category. Nasal pillow and prong masks are ideal for wide faces because the seal occurs around the nare, not the face.
Do you move around a lot when you sleep? These masks are ideal for users who either sleep on their side or stomach or restless sleepers who toss and turn. There are a few specialized cushions that address this issue as well as most Nasal Pillow and Prong CPAP masks.
These masks are designed to prevent mouth leaks. If you are opening your mouth during the night, airflow escapes and reduces therapy effectiveness. Users who are experiencing a dry mouth, sore throat, or sinus congestion may require a mask that seals around the mouth.
TV Friendly CPAP masks have interfaces that avoid obstructing your vision so you can read or watch TV before going to bed. Any mask designed without a forehead piece will fall under this property.
These masks have the least amount of material around the face, fewer headgear points, and offers more freedom when you sleep. Most Nasal Pillow and Nasal Prong masks are ideal for claustrophobic users.
|Designed For Her|
These masks were designed specifically for women to accommodate smaller facial features and lifestyle needs.
These CPAP masks have interfaces that accommodate a wide variety of facial hair styles. Gel cushions and foam inserts provide support and comfort for users who may need to over-tighten headgear straps to help seal around facial hair. Silicone gel also helps create a fluid seal over the hair.
"For the third time, I have had the socket break on this product, making the entire mask useless. (This is the ball and socket attachment for the head strap to the mask.) I continue to re-purchase this product because it works for me, but I resent the weak plastic socket that breaks easily (for me, after a few months). There is no reason to have this socket be so weak, other than to create a disposable product that people have to re-purchase. Respironics, this product defect creates customer dis-satisfaction."
"I have had a couple of these masks and I like them for the most part. But there is a serious design flaw that keeps these from lasting more than a few months before they break. Unless Respironics corrects this flaw, I will be switching masks on my next purchase.
The ComfortGel mask has a pair of tabs at the bottom of the mask where you connect the headgear straps, and these tabs need serious reinforcement. Every one of my ComfortGel masks has broken at the tabs (these are clear plastic tabs that form the socket part of a ball-and-socket connection system). This is a major stress point for the mask, and there is no replacement part for the tabs. If the thin plastic tabs break, the whole mask is broken and there's no repairing it (I've tried glue, but the repair never lasts more than a couple of days).
Respironics needs to redesign the mold for this mask so these tabs are thicker and stronger. It shouldn't be that difficult to widen the base of these tabs, and it will more than double the strength. I've found unclipping the strap from the mask (the way you're shown in the instructions) actually wears the tabs down faster than leaving the strap connected to the tabs and using the elastic to slowly slip the mask over the head.
This is a serious design flaw that has been around for a couple of years. If you mention "the tabs" to a customer service person, he or she will know what you're talking about. Do not buy this mask unless Respironics has redesigned the tabs to make them stronger. It's a shame I have to give this mask a negative review, because I actually enjoy the fit of this mask over other masks I've worn."
"This one is more comfortable, sealing with less pressure on my face. If you are used to the usual Respironics mask, you may need one size up."
"Great price. The mask leaks a lot. To stop leaking, you have to tighten the head gear which then leaves marks on either size of my nose. Also, for the first time, I am waking up with headaches. May need to go back to the Ultra Mirage which costs twice as much."
"I bought this mask since it was being sold for a great price for when I am able to train myself to breath solely in and out though my nose. Currently, I am a mouth breather but I am trying to train myself to breath through my nose.
As far as I could tell, this mask had one of the highest ratings on this site so I bought it. I have to admit that it is very comfortable!"
ComfortGel and ComfortGel Blue mask frames and cushions are interchangeable, but the cushion and frame must be the same size. ComfortGel Blue Cushion for ComfortGel Nasal CPAP Masks will work with either mask.
There is no Latex in any Respironics mask or their packaging.

All CPAP masks work with all machines.
Medicare allows for mask cushion replacement every three (3) months, and a complete mask system replacement every six (6) months. CPAP manufacturers and vendors suggest these replacement schedules as well.
In our experience, most mask cushions begin to deteriorate after about six months of use. The cushion eventually becomes too soft to hold a seal. The headgear straps lose elasticity and must be tightened more and more to get the same quality seal.
We strongly suggest replacing cushions and pillows as soon as they start to soften. Air leaks may reduce the effectiveness of CPAP therapy and headgear that is too tight may cause facial sores at pressure points. In most cases, replacement headgear is available if it is stretched out or the Velcro worn out.
To see what parts of your mask are replaceable refer to our Replacement Part Finder. Just search for your mask to see all of the replaceable parts.
The ideal CPAP mask is the one you can't tell is on. Start with minimal masks. If you are strictly a nose breather, the nasal mask is a good choice. The nasal cushion creates a very good seal around your nose and has a small profile. Nasal masks are also offered in gel, which many find comfortable. The SleepWeaver Advance is the only cloth mask on the market and is a very popular choice among nasal mask users.
Most nasal masks have a forehead support which offers stability and support for the mask.
Masks should be washed daily with warm water using a very gentle soap or baby shampoo, and left to air dry. Never use antibacterial soap as it will break down the silicone of the mask cushion. Avoid soaps that include lotion which can coat the mask and cause it to lose its seal. A safe cleaner is the Control III Disinfectant CPAP Cleaning Solution. Remember, going to bed with a clean face will improve your seal and protect the lifespan of your mask.
The best time to clean your mask is in the morning after use. This removes the oils left behind from your skin which can reduce the lifespan of your mask. We recommend using mask wipes to make daily morning cleaning easy. The mask wipes are made from materials that will not break down your mask.
