Quattro™ FX Full Face CPAP Mask Assembly Kit
Quattro™ FX Full Face CPAP Mask Assembly Overview
The next generation Quattro is modest in appearance, covering less of the face than most masks. The Quattro FX focuses on compliance through comfort by using a suspension-like frame that eliminates the forehead support. Technology like the Spring Air cushion and Swing Seal fitting technique help make the Quattro FX quick and easy to adjust.
Some of the best features from the original Quattro have carried over. The Quattro still includes:
- Built-in vent design for dispersing exhaled carbon dioxide
- 360 degree elbow rotation
- Tube Swivel
- Set-and-forget headgear clips
Fewer Contact Points
The overall design of the Quattro FX helps to create a secure seal without the aid of a forehead support. Eliminating the forehead support means fewer points of failure and an end to red marks on your forehead. Without a forehead support, you will also enjoy a clear line of sight for viewing television or reading a good book in bed.
Spring Air Technology
Spring Air technology helps to create a suspension-like action between the Spring frame and Spring Air cushion. These two mask parts, along with the contoured crown cap headgear, work together to offer an angular adjustment that makes a forehead support obsolete. The stability of the design helps to distribute pressure evenly around the face, yet reacts to accommodate user movement.
Dual-Wall, Spring Air Cushion
The Mirage series of CPAP masks have endeavored to provide superior cushion design through the incorporation of two cushion layers. The dual-walls consists of an inner, supportive layer that stabilizes the cushion and a softer, outer membrane that reduces the likelihood of leaks and pressure sores. As air flows through the cushion, the outer membrane rolls and inflates around the nose rather than stretching over it.
Swing Seal Technique
Size. Swing. Seal. Those are the simple steps used for fitting the Quattro FX. The Swing Technique is the result of the Spring Air technology and the dual-wall membrane that surrounds the bridge of your nose. As air flows through the mask and into the cushion, the contoured membrane inflates and gently positions the cushion against the face so that it forms a secure seal without the need to over tighten the headgear.
This unique design makes fitting a breeze. With the headgear clips removed, just position the mask at an angle, so that the cushion rests on the middle of the nasal bridge. Then swing the mask down to rest between the bottom lip and chin. Reattach the headgear clips and adjust the side straps for a snug fit.
This package DOES NOT include Headgear. Headgear can be purchased separately here or along with the mask here.
The mask system does not contain latex, PVC or DEHP materials.

Where do I find the size?
To find the size of the mask frame, turn the mask upside down. The flat bottom of the mask frame and mask cushion needs to face the user. The size is embossed between the ports cap and the edge of the mask frame. A clear letter will indicate the size of the mask frame.
The size of the full face cushion is located on the flat bottom of the cushion. Turn the mask upside down with the headgear facing away from the user. Located on the bottom silicone flap to the right side of the name of the mask, an embossed clear letter will specify the size of the full face cushion. The letter is larger than the word ResMed and Quattro™ FX.
Quattro and Quattro FX mask frames, cushion clips and cushions are NOT interchangeable. Individual cushions are NOT interchangeable within each mask. The size must correspond for the mask to work properly. For more information visit the Mirage Quattro FX Full Face Mask Cushion and Clip.
The Mirage Quattro sizes DO NOT match up directly with the Quattro FX sizes. The Quattro FX sizes are a bit smaller than the Mirage Quattro sizes.
To get a more accurate idea of your size, measure from the top of the bridge of your nose down to the place in between your bottom lip and chin. View the images below to see where on the face to measure. Compare your measurement with the size measurements here:
- Small: 3 9/16"
- Medium: 4"
- Large: 4 3/8"

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:
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.

Some CPAP users move to using a full face mask after finding that using a nasal mask along with a chinstrap does not meet their sleep therapy needs. Some CPAP users use a full face mask when suffering from seasonal allergies.
I CALL AND NEED INFORMATION ABOUT AN OLDER MODEL MASK WAS GIVEN GREAT INFORMATION ABOUT THE MASK I NEEDED AND ORDERED THE PARTS I WANTED more...
The Quattro FX looks to be a slimmed down and simplified version of the standard Mirage Quattro. For me, the big advantage is being able to sleep on my side, and this mask seems to allow that. Very comfortable. more...
The mask rides up on my face at night. This could be a function of my face shape and/or the headgear. My face is a round shape. more...
Want to spend 15 minutes x 2 every night trying to line up the headgear clasps at chin level so your mask will stay on your face? Then this mask is for you. And if you look in the mirror to try to line up the prongs with the clasp - no help at all, since everything is shown in reverse. In addition, you have the choice of having your mask leak air all around, or tightening the straps so much you have permanent indentations on your face. I thought a full face mask would eliminate the need for a chin strap. Nope. Bad, pricey mistake on my part. more...
