Learn More About Your New Mask

Fisher & Paykel is phasing out this mask beginning March 31st, 2008. For details, read the notice.

Our supplies are limited so if this is your favorite mask, you may want to stock up.

Fisher & Paykel recommends that people who use the Infinity mask try switching over to their new Opus 360 Nasal Pillow Mask.


The Direct Nasal Seals on this mask are anatomically designed to fit gently but securely into the nostrils. The mask elbow is a new ball-and-socket joint which allows nearly unlimited freedom of movement to be achieved between the mask and the "Flexitube," so that no matter how much you move during sleep the Infinity will move with you -- securely and quietly.

Features

  • Anatomically Designed Joint Mask Base Ball-and-socket joint allows unprecedented freedom of movement for comfort and ease of use. A continuous choice of sleeping position is provided as the Flexitube moves with the sleeper
  • Microgear Headgear - Lightweight and comfortable offering unhindered vision and freedom of sleep. Two headgear straps included with each Infinity mask
  • Contoured Silicone Seal - Anatomically shaped to the nostril to provide comfort and a superb seal
  • Maintenance free air diffuser vents disperse air quietly and efficiently without disturbing sleep
  • Four seal sizes ( Extra Small, Small, Medium, and Large) are included with a sizing guide so that you get the perfect fit

    How can I compare different machines?
    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:
    • CPAP Machine Comparison Guide. This guide stacks up every CPAP machine we sell, feature by feature. If you don't know the meaning of a feature, click the question mark for a definition. The links below will take you to the most popular CPAPs, or all CPAP machines we sell.

    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.
    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:

    What does a mask prescription need to say?

    • We can request your prescription for you! When you checkout, just let us know you would like us to request your prescription, or you can log into your account to have us request your prescription.
    • Fax your prescription to our toll-free fax number: 866.353.2727, or our international fax number: 713.541.7377

    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.
    Why might I prefer a nasal mask?
    The ideal CPAP mask is not noticeable to the user during CPAP therapy. If you breathe through your nose only, the nasal mask may offer the best therapy. Nasal cushions create a very good seal around your nose, while keeping a small profile. Also, nasal masks can be found in silicone, gel, foam, or cloth material. The SleepWeaver masks are the only cloth masks on the market, and are a very popular choice among nasal mask users. Lastly, most nasal masks have a forehead support which offers stability and support for the mask.

    I am sorry to say, but the Infinity Direct Nasal CPAP Mask, was very uncomfortable for me. The problem is that the tubing sits on your lip and it is very painful. It is also hard to move because the swivel sometimes does not moved with you and it pulls the entire gear from your face.

    WHAT A FIND

    Verified purchase | Mar. 01, 2008 | Verified CPAP.com Customer
    I've been using a cpap for a long time now, and have never found a mask that did not leak. It seemed no matter how the headgear was constructed I couldn't get a good seal. So you can imagine my surprise when not only did this mask seal, but with only a small rubber tube. I now have a mask that is not intrusive (strap) and allows me to sleep in any position. Previous masks would get pushed sideways if I slept on my side, but not this one. I also have always had to use the large size for the nasal masks, but found that the medium kept the best seal with this one. I would highly reccommend this mask to everyone! Good Luck

    I recently got my new Infinity HC481 mask. Things are going pretty good I suppose. I am still in the adjustment stage but overall I believe this mask is going to be just what I need. I am still having soreness under my nose when I awaken but I am trying new adjustments nightly. The mask is so light, the air export doesn't make near the noise my last direct nasal mask did. I am satisfied with this product as well as the company I ordered it from. They were on the ball with shipping it to me. I got it a couple of days before I expected it. Thanks Cpap.com!

    I believe the Infinity HC 481 is the best the market has to offer. The Nasial Air II is more comfortable and stays on better but I was paying $100.00 every four to five months for a replacement. Some adjustments on my part are required to adapt to the Infinity. Bruce
