The FitLife is an alternative to conventional nasal or full face CPAP masks. The seal wraps around the outer most perimeter of your face. This moves the pressure off the cheeks and nose, allowing the soft silicone cushion to fit quickly and evenly for maximum comfort.
Air pressure from the system inflates the soft, flexible sealing layer, which minimizes leaks while providing optimal airflow through the nasal passages. The cushion is over-molded to provide a seamless seal for air pressure to circulate throughout the mask and allow for more natural, comfortable breathing.
The mask comes with easy-to-use snap clips that do not need readjusting when removing or installing.
FitLife Headgear is designed to support and stabilize the mask. The color of the headgear varies between black, pale blue and dove gray. The back of the headgear may or may not have a cutout. Per the manufacturer, these variances do not affect the performance of the product.
Size Small mask comes packaged with the size Small Headgear.
Size Large mask comes packaged with the size Large Headgear.
Size Extra Large mask comes packaged with the size Extra Large Headgear.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Currently, the manufacturer is packaging this mask with a light blue/grey headgear rather than a black headgear. There may be an opening at the back of the headgear. Whether or not there is an opening, the headgear will function as it should, as per the manufacturer.
Adults only mask with headgear. Two sizes fits most adults. NOT for side sleepers but work well for users on their back.
Early models of the FitLife Full Face Mask came with two elbows. The blue elbow is an alternative Non-Ventilated elbow. Use this only with a ventilator equipped with adequate alarms and safety systems for ventilator failure. A typical CPAP device will not have adequate alarms and safety systems.
The Headgear for FitLife Total Face CPAP Masks come in three sizes:
Small - Part Number 1060807
Large - Part Number 1060808
Extra Large - Part Number 1089990
The Small FitLife comes packaged with the small headgear, the Large FitLife comes package with the large headgear and the Extra Large FitLife comes packaged with the extra large headgear. Colors vary and do not affect the function of the headgear. The headgear may or may not have a cutout on the back head strap, performance is not affected by this design change.
Swivel Note: In some instances, the swivel that attaches to the elbow on the Fitlife mask to connect a CPAP hose comes packaged unattached. Simply attach the swivel by snapping to the elbow and then connect the hose for use.
"This is to my taste the most non-invasive mask tried yet. I have no problem falling asleep with it. Unlike the other masks which either covers the nose or the nasal double insert device, this mask does not inflict tremendous pressure around the nose. The only problem with it is the marks it leaves around the face in the event of sleeping on your side. Otherwise, the pressure throughput that is needed to sustain similar positive displacement must be adjusted by your sleep doctor to learn the full potential of this mask. Overall I think this mask is good and most times the scaring goes away in a couple of hours. But it is there to be seen for a while unless the next generation of this product can come up with better padding."
Voted most helpful critical review
Victor R, BROOKLYN, NY – September 03, 2009
"I recently purchased this mask based on several factors: 1 - Review from 1 user. 2 - It appearance. 3 - Great concept.
It looks like the mask would solve a problem I have with my full face mask of leaks and itchings around the top lips. But it failed.
PROS: Vision is clear, if you watch TV, like I do, on bed! Your nose is not under pression! It does not matter if you mouth is open since it is inside de mask.
CONS: At least for me: 1 - It leaks profusely all over but more on the front-head side.
2 - In the morning I get up with pain all over around the area of the head-gears.
BTW, this mask is not for side sleepers, although you might be able to manage, if you try hard enough.
One last thing, CPAP was great in handling the return. I purchased "return insurance" and it works as advertised."
"I have used 5 different masks over the last 10 or so years. All have either hurt my face in different areas, or leaked and were very difficult to sleep with.
The FitLife Total face mask is the best one I have used. I seals great and does not irritate my skin at all.
The only issue I have is that when I roll on my side, it will lose its seal unless I very carefully position my head on the pillow so that there is no pressure on the mask.
Otherwise, it a very good mask!!!"
Makes All The Difference

"Finally, I have found a mask which does not pinch my nose. The mask fits well and is leak-free most nights."
Strong preference for Total Face CPAP Mask
Philip N, CO – January 18, 2014
"I'm a mouth-breather, so I needed a CPAP mask that covered the lower part of the face. I tried the high-end 'full face' masks, but these pressed in to tight on the bridge of the nose, leaving very noticeable skin impressions and, worse, soreness. By contrast, the FitLife Total Face Mask makes its skin impressions along the sides of the face where they're much less noticeable and don't cause any pain. I wash my face and shave every night to maximize the seal, and I've been very pleased with the result. My sleep therapist doesn't carry this mask, so I had to order it myself--and I have no regrets."
There are special circumstances or needs for this mask such as a patient who leaks air out of the corner of their eyes or have a facial condition preventing the use of a nasal or full face mask. Like a Full Face mask, a total face mask equalizes pressures for even delivery of treatment. However, this mask encompasses the entire face to cover all opening on the face where air might escape, such as the eyes.

Do you have a guide to help me choose the right mask?
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. Get started here:
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:

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.
How often should I replace my mask?
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.
