FlexiFit HC405 Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
FlexiFit HC405 Nasal Mask Overview
The HC405 mask is the upgrade to the Aclaim 2. It features the same "Fit and Forget" technology that combines a unique foam cushion shape and headgear design for a comfortable, stable fit. The major difference between the Aclaim 2 and the HC405 is the hose connection which now swivels instead of being fixed upward and over the head.
FlexiFit Cushion. The unique inner foam cushion provides a secure seal. The mask includes a small and large seal and one foam cushion.
Glider Strap Anti-Leak System. This strap is used to connect the headgear to the mask frame for stability, but it slides across the frame when the head is turned so that the pressure of the seal stays uniform regardless of sleep position.
Front Swivel Hose Connection. The HC405 has a swivel hose connection instead of the fixed one of the Aclaim 2 so that the hose may be positioned in any direction for ease of movement during sleep.
Bias Diffuser. The HC405 exhalation vent has be redesigned and placed on the elbow of the swivel to help keep it from blowing onto a bedmate. It also uses a filter to help reduce noise.
Four Strap Headgear. The top headgear strap has been removed for a simpler, more open design. The headgear of the HC405 is latex free, as are all other headgear by Fisher & Paykel.

Where do I find the size?
The FlexiFit HC405 Nasal CPAP Mask is a mask frame that comes with two nasal cushion sizes: small and large. The bottom of the mask frame is labeled with the mask name: HC405, representing the necessary mask frame needed if the user wears a size small or size large. When examining the front of the mask frame, the name is printed below the glider strap.
The FlexiFit HC405 cushion is replaceable, and it has an identifiable mark. To find the size of the nasal cushion, locate the flat bottom of the mask. Embossed in silicone, the user will see the word small or large. Depending on the word recorded on the bottom of the nasal cushion, the replacement cushion will need to correspond directly. The HC405 cushions can be viewed here: Flexi Foam Cushion Insert and Silicone Seal Kit for Aclaim 2 and HC405 Nasal CPAP Mask.

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.
Help Me Choose - Mask
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 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.
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.
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!

I used this type of Mask for over 20 years and for me it works great, I have tried full face Mask and it doesn't work well for me. more...

A very good full nasal CPAP mask. I have used this model for about five years and now am buying replacement parts - particularly the double elastic around the back of the head. With regular wear and cleaning the elastic lasts about one year, then begins to lose elasticity. If you can manage sleeping with a fairly large apparatus on the front of your face, this model mask is an excellent choice. I have not tried any of the nose plug type masks, so cannot compare to them. more...
wonderful item great
Have used this type of mask for 5 + years and found it better than nasal masks. In winter or high humidity areas suggest you remember to dissassemble daily, if possible, to let the pillow dry out. It's very easy to take appart and re-assemble. more...
