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.
|Free Return Insurance|
This insurance allows returns on items within 30 days of purchase for a full refund of the product's purchase price
|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.
"I ordered this mask at the end of December but am not submitting a rating till now as I wanted to see how it worked over a couple of months. My primary mask prior to this was a F&P 407 (flex fit) so my comparison is with this mask. The flex fit has a two part sealing system with foam and then silicon parts that I found lasted about 3-4 months before they developed cracks or holes and had to be replaced. The UM2 uses a one part cushion to seal around the nose--a welcome change. The only thing I do not like about the UM2 cushion is the cushion clip seems rather brittle (but I have not broken it in two months of usage so who am I to complain) and could have been made more sturdy. The headgear is the best I have ever used. I have used after-market cloth strap covers to keep from getting "strap face" the next morning. With the UM2 I don't have this problem, it is the most comfortable headgear that I have ever used. The headgear clips are also very easy to use...only thing I don't like is it does not have a swivel mechanism on it so that if you clip it on with the strap turned on itself you can not straighten the strap out (you must detach, straighten the strap out and then reclip). This is a minor complaint as in return I feel that the clip will not have to be constantly replaced as I have read reviewers of the Comfort Gel mask having problems with this. The only other problem (another minor problem--but full disclosure is a good thing) is the forehead support--perhaps I have it too tight but I like a good seal, --I usually wake up with an indentation in my forehead from the support in my forehead that takes about 2-3 hours to go away.
Ok now I have compliance data from my encore-viewer software. I use a pressure setting of 11.
With the F@P flex fit hc407: avg time apnea per day 12 sec., avg. time in lg leak per day 39 sec., avg ahi 0.7. With the Ultra Mirage 2: avg time apnea per day 2 sec., avg. time in lg leak per day 0 sec., avg ahi 0.5.
I am very demanding of what I consider good sleep (I never sleep without my cpap, and always have 100% compliance). The Ultra Mirage 2 helps me sleep better with less problems...there are a few minor annoyances but on the whole I am very pleased."
"Had high hopes based on reviews and the amount of people that had purchased this mask. It was comfortable and the construcion solid. The downfall was the exhaust port. It is extremely noisy and it blows on you in whatever direction the elbow faces. Tried it for three nights and struggled each night not knowing if the mask was leaking or just blowing exhaust on me. Woke up each morning with dry eyes or lips, depending on the direction of the elbow. Also the amount of air that blows through the exhaust is excessive. My cpap pressure felt much lower than normal due to this. Had the insurance and sent it back. Originally wanted to purchase the Mirage Activa LT mask but the on line sizing tool said it was not a good fit. I checked Resmeds website and according to Resmed the sizing is the same for these two masks. I just ordered the Activa LT, this has a redesigned exhaust port -we will see what happens."
"Good mask. It is comfortable when tightened properly, but leaves a mark on your face in the morning. If you try to loosen it so that it doesn't leave a mark it will fail to give a good seal then leak around the edges. However it is still the most comfortable mask I have used."
"the mask leaks a little and is a tad bit hard to adjust without getting it too tight."
"I have tried others but this mask fits me the best."
Yes. The same cushion is used for the Ultra Mirage and the Ultra Mirage II mask frame. The cushions and mask frames are interchangeable.
We work very hard to provide many different ways for our customers to compare products. Here are the machine product guides we have created and maintain:
Yes, we created a Help Me Choose guide to help you select the right mask or machine according to your preferences. The guide asks you a series of questions regarding your preferences and your facial features. Based on your answers we provide you with a comparison chart of the masks that meet your criteria.

All CPAP masks work with all machines.
Yes. Federal law requires we have a valid prescription on file before we ship your mask, machine and/or humidifier.
We provide many easy ways to get your prescription:
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.
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.
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.
