The Profile Lite Gel Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear has an innovative gel cushion which offers a custom fit for better sealing and comfort.
The Respironics Profile Lite Gel Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear offers the unique option of customizing the fit of the gel cushion. It is offered in a wide range of sizes making it a good option for a variety of face shapes and sizes.
Boil & Fit Gel Cushion. The custom fit gel cushion increases comfort and reduces leaks and adapts for facial hair. Here's how it works: Just boil the mask for four minutes. Cool it for ten seconds in cold water, and then press it against your face. It will mold to every facial contour. If your facial features ever change due weight loss or gain, you can easily repeat the process and refit the mask.
Wide Variety of Sizes. Seven sizes for more accurate fit and less leakage. When choosing a size in the Profile Lite, keep in mind that the size range is very wide, from Petite to Large. The Large sizes are rarely used by anyone but very tall people, and even the Medium can be too big for many men.
Gel Forehead Pad The Gel forehead pad helps relieve pressure at the nose bridge.

Mask Port Caps
Respironics packages this mask with both port caps in the off position. The ideal position for standard CPAP use is with the port caps on. Our pictures of the Profile Lite show the port caps in the on position. Port caps should be in the on position unless ports are attached to supplemental oxygen or you are using a machine, such as the 420E APAP, which uses a sensor tube that measures pressure at the mask

Help with Sizing
For help with fitting directions, please review: Profile Lite Mask User Instructions.
The Youth size is designed for children and is smaller than the Petite size.
Where do I find the size?
The Profile Lite frame is labeled with a letter and part number, designating the size. When examining the front of the mask, the letter size is located towards the top center of the frame. The part number, also designating mask size, is located on the front of the mask, just below the elbow. The Profile Lite cushion is not replaceable and is not labeled.
System One Resistance Control Tips
If using a Respironics System One machine, a system one resistance control number from Respironics can be set to allow the machine to compensate for different mask types. The resistance control number for the Profile Lite Gel Nasal CPAP Mask is X1. Please Note: System One Resistance Control is for System One Machines only.
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.
Yes. Federal law requires we have a valid prescription on file before we ship your mask, machine, humidifier, or EPAP therapy, including Provent and Bongo RX. You will also need a prescription to purchase the Nightbalance POSA device.
We provide many easy ways to get your prescription:

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!
Here are some other cleaning products to help with keeping your mask fresh:
Why would they have a design where the top headgear straps pull against something resting on your forehead,instead of pulling... at the top of the nose piece? This is stupid! I pulled the rubber off the top trying to cool my head. Then I got the imprint of the plastic in my forehead from trying to get the mask pulled in adequately to seal. I'm forced to use it until I find something better, not happy at all. more...
