    The Mirage SoftGel nasal mask offers exceptional comfort with ResMed's renowned performance and quality. The Mirage SoftGel provides a soft touch with strong stability for a comfortable, effective seal. Its unique DoubleGel cushion includes a blue gel layer for strong support and a clear gel layer that gently conforms to individual facial contours, making it easy, quick and intuitive to fit.

    Manufactured by ResMed.

    Product Features

    The ConvertAble Series is a new ResMed concept that allows cushions to interchange with other masks. The SoftGel frame and Activa LT frame are identical. The ActivaCell or DoubleGel cushion will work with either mask. This provides users with a choice of technologies at the cost of a new cushion instead of a complete mask.

    DoubleGel technology automatically seals around the user's face and offers a personalized fit. The two layers of gel provide comfort and stability while maintaining a solid seal. The clear gel layer sits against the cheeks and provides a soft, gentle feel while conforming to any unique facial features. The blue gel layer is more dense; therefore, providing additional support and stability once the mask is fitted.

    The MicroFit Dial allows CPAP users to find the right fit using 24 small incremental adjustments. The dual-wall cushion and forehead move in tandem as the dial is turned. This design is intended to address difficultly with "first time" fittings and also helps prevent the need to over-tighten headgear.

    The new diffusion vent and 360 Degree elbow disperses air softer and quieter than before. The exhalation ports are configured in a circular design that greatly reduces the audible sound of exhaled air and redirects the airflow away from your bed partner.

    Headgear Quick Clips allows for fast and convenient removal of the mask without the need to re-adjust the headgear.

    This package DOES NOT include Headgear. Headgear can be purchased separately Headgear for the Mirage™ SoftGel or the mask can be purchased with headgear here: Mirage SoftGel™ Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear.

    Important Tips

    Fitting Help

    SoftGel and ActiveCell Technology are designed to seal without needing to over-tighten the mask headgear to create a secure seal. A looser fitting mask reduces pressure points and prevents red marks.

    ResMed also provides a printable sizing tool that has cut-outs with sizes for the Mirage Micro, SoftGel and Activa LT Sizing Template.

    For more help with fitting, read through ResMed's Softgel User Guide. ResMed's Product Guide also provides helps with fitting and tips to avoid over tightening.


    Where do I find the size?

    The Mirage SoftGel™ Nasal CPAP Mask frame has two different sizes: Small and Standard. Only the small size is labeled and will accept only small size cushions. When examining the front of the mask, the size is printed on either side of the elbow, where the headgear clips attach. The Standard mask frame is not labeled and will work only with cushion sizes: Medium, Large, and Large Wide. The Mirage SoftGel™ cushion is replaceable and comes labeled. When examining the front of the mask, the size is printed on the top, bottom and right left side of the cushion.


    Sizing Recommendations if you are changing from a Philips Respironic's ComfortGel mask

    If you are currently using a ComfortGel and are trying the SoftGel, we recommend the following sizing recommendations:

    • ComfortGel - Petite = SoftGel - Small
    • ComfortGel - Small = most will fit the SoftGel - Medium, some may find the SoftGel - Small a better fit
    • ComfortGel - Medium = SoftGel - Large
    • ComfortGel - Large = SoftGel - Large Wide

    Convertable Use with Activa LT

    The ConvertAble Series is a new ResMed concept that allows cushions to interchange with other masks. The SoftGel frame and Activa LT frames are identical in size. The ActivaCell or DoubleGel cushion will work with either mask. If you would like to purchase the Activa LT cushion separately, please visit:

    Silicone Cushion and Clip for Mirage Activa LT Nasal CPAP Mask

    There are two frame sizes between these two masks. The size small is the only system that cannot change mask sizes. We recommend the following conversion equivalent chart.

    • Small Activa LT and Small SoftGel masks only accept Small size cushions
    • Size Medium/Large/Large Wide Masks will fit either DoubleCell or ActiveCell cushion in any size other than Small

    ResMed's Convertable Series Brochure illustrates how to change the cushions. ResMed's Patient Brochure speaks to the benefits of convertibility and other features of the SoftGel mask.



    CPAP Video & FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Are prescriptions required for mask, machine, humidifier, and Provent purchases?
    Yes. Federal law requires we have a valid prescription on file before we ship your mask, machine, humidifier, or Provent.

    We provide many easy ways to get your prescription:
    • 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.

    For more information on prescriptions, please see our Prescription Section of the Learning Center.
    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.

    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:

    Unscented CPAP Mask Wipes

    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 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.
    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 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.
