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 Cushions and SST Flaps
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.
The same size silicone flap must be used to secure the gel cushion to the frame.
Philips Respironics System One Resistance Control
Resistance Control is a numbering system on all of the newer Respironics CPAP masks. It is based on variable resistance characteristics of each mask. The RC 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.
To find the Resistance Control number look near 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 the PR System One CPAP Machine.

We provide many easy ways to get your prescription:

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:
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.
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 have purchased this mask before. But this time just did not fit right
Been using the same mask for years, have no intention of using anything else.
This is the best fitting mask I’ve found.
It’s the only mask I use.
CPAP .com is very quick and I really liked the service I received
This is the 4th mask I've tried and I love it, good seal without having to tighten the straps very... tight, very comfortable. All the other ones I tried either leaked or you really had to crank down on the straps to get a good seal. more...
