FitLife Total Face CPAP Mask with Headgear
FitLife Total Face Mask Overview
The FitLife Total Face CPAP Mask with Headgear by Philips Respironics covers the entire face, including the eyes. It may be a consideration for users who were unable to tolerate or find success with other mask types. The FitLife Total Face Mask is available in three sizes: Small, Large and Extra Large.
Air pressure from the system inflates the soft, flexible sealing layer, which minimizes leaks while providing optimal airflow through the nasal passages. The cushion is over-molded to provide a seamless seal for air pressure to circulate throughout the mask and allow for more natural, comfortable breathing.
The mask comes with easy-to-use snap clips that do not need readjusting when removing or installing.
FitLife Headgear is designed to support and stabilize the mask. The back of the headgear may or may not have a cutout. Per the manufacturer, these variances do not affect the performance of the product.
- Size Small mask comes packaged with the size Small Headgear.
- Size Large mask comes packaged with the size Large Headgear.
- Size Extra Large mask comes packaged with the size Extra Large Headgear.

Where do I find the size?
The cushion is not replaceable.
The mask frame does not have an identifiable size because the unit is sold as one piece. To find the size of the unit, look for the marking on the cushion. With the mask turned upside down, look at the flat bottom of the cushion, where the frame connects to the silicone. A large circle with a letter is found directly in the middle of the bottom of the cushion. The letter indicates the size of the entire unit.
Fit and Sizing Guides
Currently, the manufacturer is packaging this mask with grey headgear. There may be an opening at the back of the headgear. Whether or not there is an opening, the headgear will function as it should, as per the manufacturer.
Adults only mask with headgear. Two sizes fits most adults. NOT for side sleepers but work well for users on their back.
Early models of the FitLife Full Face Mask came with two elbows. The blue elbow is an alternative Non-Ventilated elbow. Use this only with a ventilator equipped with adequate alarms and safety systems for ventilator failure. A typical CPAP device will not have adequate alarms and safety systems.
The Headgear for FitLife Total Face CPAP Masks come in three sizes:
Small - Part Number 1060807
Large - Part Number 1060808
Extra Large - Part Number 1089990
The Small FitLife comes packaged with the small headgear, the Large FitLife comes package with the large headgear and the Extra Large FitLife comes packaged with the extra large headgear. Colors vary and do not affect the function of the headgear. The headgear may or may not have a cutout on the back head strap, performance is not affected by this design change.
Swivel Note: In some instances, the swivel that attaches to the elbow on the Fitlife mask to connect a CPAP hose comes packaged unattached. Simply attach the swivel by snapping to the elbow and then connect the hose for use.
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 FitLife Total Face CPAP Mask is X1. Please Note: System One Resistance Control is for System One Machines only.

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.
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.

I am a nose mask user with a newer ResMed CPAP device. I average 99% usage per year, 6 years running now. Nose/mouth masks, and nasal pillows trigger phobic and anxiety reactions. A few times a year, I may suffer minor sinusitis for different reasons (a condition that used to be chronic until I discovered CPAP's). When my sinus stuffs up, its usually means that I will be up in a chair with no CPAP until my decongestants take affect - if at all. I purchased this as a 2nd option (I knew that I had no problems with all-face gas masks when I was working). Initially it seems to work. I Sized out as a Large. It is about a 95% good fit - could be a touch larger but not much to be perfect for me. Switching my CPAP settings to FULL FACE (closest I am aware of that match this type of mask) still produces a slightly "vibrating" or "oscillating" type of air flow during breathing. Initially, I was able to nap a few minutes over 1 hr trials (normally, I can sleep nearly 55 out of 60 minutes or such naps with my usual mask). However, I can see where if this is as best as I can get it, I will eventually probably adjust to it. With a comfortable tension on the head set, I am still getting a slight leak around the seals. It seems to build, then eventually begin breaching the seal. I still have to experiment with added tension to see if I can tolerate it. The connection/disconnection process for the mask/straps connection is still not natural when the mask is on. I am presuming this is a learning curve. Wasn't ready for my breath to begin to condense on the inside of the mask. As I breathed further, that seem to reside. Again - learning curve. I have a way to go (including contact with my ResMed provider) to see if I can tweek this mask better. However, for now: it is not perfect but it does seem to be potentially able to fill an occasional need. more...
Seal did not offer enough material for comfortable fit.
I tried this mask because my previous mask the Full Face mask, which covers just the mouth and nose, pressed along the top side of my nose and cut off the air entering that nostril. This total face mask seals along the forehead rather than the top of my nose and allows me to breathe freely through both nostrils. A negative to this mask is that the I find clipping the bottom of the mask to the head gear is very difficult. I really don't understand the design of these clips and find other masks I have used to have clips that are much easier to use and not as prone to accidentally unclip like I have experienced with this mask. A common problem I have had with both this total face mask and the full face mask is that several times during the night my auto cpap increases the air flow drastically and starts blowing out the side of the total face mask and the top of the full face mask.This wakes me and I have to turn off and on my cpap to reduce the air pressure. It would be great if the seals around the total face mask could withstand this increased air pressure without necessitating that I tighten the headgear so tight that it cuts off the blood flow in my head. more...

I use a mask that fits over my nose and mouth usually. The day I broke my nose that mask was no longer usable. I hunted on CPAP.com for a total face-covering mask. Voila! No more pain. This mask does the trick and is great. It does not dry out my eyes. more...
I had problems with all the other CPAD mask out there. I would get a rash on my face though I was using the the mask with the cushion, I was using the cotton cloths on my face but nothing was working. I decided to give this mask a try and I love it. I haven’t had any more problems. more...
