The Comfort Gel mask is no longer manufactured with the Deluxe Headgear. Respironics has upgraded the headgear to the Premium Headgear with EZ Peel Tabs. System One Resistance Control
Resistance Control is a numbering system on all new Respironics CPAP masks and based on variable resistance characteristics. Each number instructs the device to compensate for different mask types. The result is a consistent and reliable pressure, enhanced with all the benefits of Flex Technology, no matter which mask is used.
You can find the Resistance Control number next to the size indicator on the SST FLap. The size of the frame, cushion, or flap is printed or embossed on each individual part. An example of the size indicator is a printed "L" meaning the replacement part is a size "Large." Use the number next to the Size for use with yout PR System One CPAP Machine. Help with Sizing

Where do I find the size?
The ComfortGel frame is available in three different sizes. Each frame is labeled with a letter and a part number, designating the mask size. To find the letter on the mask frame, locate the elbow of the mask. Just below the elbow, the user will see a clear letter embossed into the mask frame, indicating the size. The larger black numbers listed below the embossed letter represent the part number, which directly corresponds to the product's size.
The size of the gel cushion and the SST flap is located on the bottom of the gel cushion, where the mask frame and nasal cushion connect. If the mask is a size small, medium, or large, the letter indicating the size of the mask will be black. If the cushion is petite, a blue letter will indicated the size of the cushion.
If the user removes the gel cushion from the SST flap, the size will not be identifiable. The size of the gel cushion is not recorded, yet it directly corresponds to the size written on the silicone flap. Replacing Mask Frames and Cushion with SST Flap
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.
- Large frame = Large cushion and flap
- Small/Medium frame = Medium cushion and flap
- Small/Medium frame = Small cushion and flap
- Petite frame = Petite cushion and flap
The same size silicone flap must be used to secure the gel cushion to the frame. Where do I find the size?
The ComfortGel frame comes in three different sizes (see Replacing Mask Frames above) and is labeled with a letter and a part number, both designate mask size. When examining the front of the mask, the size is located on the left side of the frame and the part number is printed below the mask elbow. The ComfortGel cushion size is printed on the bottom, underneath the cushion body. The ComfortGel cushion flap is also labeled and the size and Resistance Control number is printed on the base side of the flap.
