    Product Features

    Fisher and Paykel continues their unique design approach with the FlexiFit 432 full face CPAP mask. Like the FlexiFit 431, the full face cushion fits under the chin rather than up against the chin. This is a full face mask and covers both the nose and mouth.

    Key Benefits:

    • Under Chin fit gives a better, more stable fit. It is also good for holding up the jaw and sealing over some beards.

    • Firm Foam Seal. A soft inner foam cushion has been added to the silicone cushion for a better seal, stability and comfort. It helps fit a wider variety of bridge sizes and shapes.

    • Adjusts As You Sleep. Same Glider-Strap technology as other Fisher and Paykel masks, to help keep the mask sealed even when moving around during sleep.

    • Easy On, Easy Off. Headgear is a crown strap style to add stability, with fit-and-forget sizing and a quick-release strap for fast removal.

    • Replacement Cushion & Insert Available. The life of the mask can be extended by replacing the Flexi Foam Cushion Insert and Silicone Seal Kit for the FlexiFit HC432 Full Face Mask.

    • One Frame Size. The frame for the HC432 comes in one size and can accommodate all sizes of the cushion and insert. Need to try an alternate size? Only the Foam Cushion Insert and Silicone Seal Kit are needed.

    The headgear of the HC432 is latex free, as are all other headgear by Fisher & Paykel.

    Important Tips

    Where do I find the size?

    The FlexiFit HC432 mask frame does not have an identifiable size because it offers a universal fit for all four cushion sizes created for the HC432 Full Face CPAP Mask.

    To find the size of the cushion, turn the mask to look at the flat bottom of full face cushion. Large embossed letters spell out the words "S M A L L," "M E D I U M," or "L A R G E." The words are found near the rim connecting the mask frame to the full face cushion.

    The silicone cushion and foam insert are both replaceable. To find the size of the foam insert, pull the insert out of the cushion. Hold the insert as if preparing to place the insert inside of the cushion. A small, embossed letter is recorded at the peak of the insert, where the nose connects to the foam material.

    Frame and Cushion Compatibility

    • The HC432 foam insert and silicone cushion will not fit the HC431 frame.
    • The HC431 silicone cushions made after April 2006 will fit the HC432 frame. The HC431 silicone cushions made before April 2006 will not fit the 432 frame.
    • The Flexifit HC432 mask size runs a bit smaller than the Flexifit HC431.
    • The manufacturer has stamped the part number (431 or 432) identifying the mask on the upright bar for the forehead support. The manufacturer did not include the alpha characters "HC" in front of the numeric characters.

    Which CPAP masks work on which machines?

    Any mask will work with any machine, with one important exception. The ResMed AirMini is only compatible with certain ResMed CPAP masks. Compatible masks for the AirMini are as follows:

    • ResMed AirFit™ N20 Nasal Mask
    • ResMed AirFit™ F20 Full Face
    • ResMed AirTouch™ F20 Full Face
    • ResMed AirFit™ P10 Nasal Pillow

    When considering another CPAP, APAP or BiPAP machine from ResMed or any other manufacturer, mask compatibility extends to all brands. The AirMini uses non-standard tubing to connect the machine to the mask, and is the primary reason why other masks won't work with the AirMini. Despite this issue, many of our customers consider the AirMini to be an excellent machine.

    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:

    Help Me Choose - 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.
    What does a mask prescription need to say?
    A mask prescription must contain all of the following information:
    • One of the following words or phrases: "CPAP Mask", "CPAP Supplies", "CPAP Humidifier", "CPAP", "Continuous Positive Airway Pressure", "APAP", "AutoPAP", "AutoSet", "Auto CPAP", "Auto Adjusting CPAP", "Self Adjusting CPAP", "BiPAP", "BiLevel", "VPAP", "BiPAP Auto", "BiPAP ST", "Synchrony ST", "VPAP ST"
    • Your physician's contact information
    • Your physician's signature
    • The patient's full name

    Why might I need a full face 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.
    What are the CPAP, BiPAP, Sleep Apnea, and Oxygen related HCPCS, CPT or billing codes?

    E1399 is Miscellaneous and is used for other CPAP and Oxygen items.
    How do I care for my mask?

    Masks should be washed daily with warm water and gentle soap or baby shampoo. Let the mask 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. Citrus Mask Wipes

    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.

    Citrus Mask Wipes


    For customers who want to completely disinfect their mask and accessories, there's an even better option than wipes. The Lumin Mask and Accessories Cleaner uses powerful UV light to disinfect, killing almost all bacteria almost instantly. It's not a cleaner and doesn't scrub or wash anything, but for simple disinfecting the Lumin works great!




    Here are some other cleaning products to help with keeping your mask fresh:


    Citrus II CPAP Mask Spray Cleaner

    Control III Disinfectant CPAP Cleaning Solution - Home Care Kit

    Hurricane CPAP Equipment Dryer

    Unscented CPAP Mask Wipes

    Lumin CPAP Mask and Accessories Cleaner

    Are the FlexiFit HC431 and HC432 cushion sizes interchangeable on the mask frame?
    All FlexiFit HC431 and HC432 cushions and mask frames are interchangeable. The silicone cushions are interchangeable, but the foams will not work with the 431.
