Ultra Mirage™ Full Face CPAP Mask with Headgear
Get mask wipes for just 1˘ more when you add this item to your cart.About 40 percent of people who use a CPAP machine and just about all BiLevel machine users lose pressure directly from the mouth. This happens usually through leaks from the mouth or via mouth breathing while wearing a nasal mask. The resulting loss in pressure may bring about flu-like characteristics, inadequate sleep therapy, and disrupted sleep. Since the Ultra Mirage full face mask covers both the nose and mouth it prevents pressure loss from mouth breathing thereby improving both your comfort and your sleep therapy.

|Full Face||Full Face||Full 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 really like this mask. With a few exceptions...
The mask I've been using for the past 6 months or so is the Respironics ComfortFull II. That's my main comparison.
1. Venting. The ComfortFull shoots a stream of air out in front, right above where the hose joins the mask - which meant my wife was sometimes awakened by the breeze blowing in her face. The Ultra Mirage vents out the top of the mask, so I don't have to worry about disturbing my wife when I roll over her direction.
2. More about the venting: Because it vents out the top of the mask, rather than near where the hose connects to the mask, the "sweep" inside the mask seems a lot better. The air in the ComfortFull would occasionally seem a bit stale, and I'd always awaken with condensation in the mask, even at low humidifier levels. With the Ultra Mirage, I no longer have condensation. At all. Even on a humidity setting where I'd occasionally end up with a puddle inside my ComfortFull.
3. Headgear. There are clips at all four connection points, making it really easy to completely remove the headgear for cleaning without having to twiddle with the sizing adjustments afterward. And though I first thought it might be more difficult to deal with the clip when I take the mask off and on in the middle of the night when I get up to go to the bathroom or something, it's really easy. I picked up the hang of it immediately - it's designed well enough that the clip just seems to slide right into place, even though I can't see what I'm doing. The headgear also seems more comfortable on the back of my neck.
4. Fit. With the exception of a leak around my nose (see below), I haven't had any leakage problems. The ComfortFull often leaked in random places.
5. Oxygen Ports. On the ComfortFull, the oxygen port was a hole with a little rubber cover. The cover had a tendency to come loose in the night, and I'd awaken to find I was losing pressure. The Ultra Mirage has two ports, but the covers screw on, so it's a lot more difficult for them to just open up while I'm sleeping.
6. Replaceable cushion. Rather than having to replace the whole mask, it's possible to just order a new cushion for the Ultra Mirage. The cushion is not replaceable on the ComfortFull. A replacement cushion is less than 1/3 the price of a new mask.
1. To take the mask apart for a thorough cleaning, it's like a jigsaw puzzle with several small parts that can easily get lost. On the plus side, the instructions are clear, and it's possible to get the entire mask good and clean.
2. The plastic in this mask doesn't feel as substantial as that in the Respironics, but it's also lighter.
3. The forehead piece adjustment isn't as good for me. I've tried some masks that didn't have a forehead piece adjustment, and they don't work for me. The Ultra Mirage has a forehead piece adjustment, but it's not as flexible as on the ComfortFull. On the ComfortFull, I had to bring the top of the mask in toward my face to seal around my nose. The Ultra Mirage doesn't allow me to bring the mask in as far. Nevertheless, the mask almost fits - my only problem is a persistent leak on the left side of my nose. I'm a side sleeper, and it doesn't matter whether I'm on my left side or right side - I still get that leak, and it occasionally wakes me up. If the forehead adjustment allowed me to bring the top of the mask in just a bit, the fit would be perfect, because that is the ONLY LEAK I have trouble with. I've tried repositioning the mask, moving it up and down on my face, moving it from side to side ... still have trouble on the left side of my nose."
"I found this mask to be unsatisfactory for several reasons:
Noisy - more so than the mask I was using. Air flow, leaks, and creaking of the forehead piece when I would shift positions in the bad.
Uncomfortable - forehead piece at points of contact even though adjustable. (looking somewhat flimsy, possibly not hold up)
Leaks - the only way I could stop "flatulent" like leaking was to cinch up the headgear so tightly that it caused my head to ache.
Head gear latch - difficult to find the place where it attaches, especially at night in a dark room.
The four nights I struggled with this mask were not restful and I was awake more than normal, trying to adjust straps or stop the inordinate noise of the air flow, or get relief from inordinate pressure from the headgear. Thankfully, I am able to return the mask and go back to the mask that I have been using for several years."
"love this mask, realize that there are better masks on the market, but this one has worked very well for years, only the second mask in the last seven years. You should replace the cushion once per year from discoloration. If you are a smoke, you should replace every six months."
"I love this mask (well, to the degree one loves using one)! I can't find a local supplier for it so I appreciate being able to order it online. Thank you for such good service."
"Plastic bracket on forehead moves the mask Easley from contact by pillow when sleeping on your side."
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.

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.
If your mouth drops open during sleep, a full face may be selected to allow for the CPAP airflow to be delivered through both the nose and mouth.
Some CPAP users move to using a full face mask after finding that using a nasal mask along with a chinstrap does not meet their sleep therapy needs. Some CPAP users use a full face mask when suffering from seasonal allergies.
