The Wisp Nasal CPAP Mask by Philips Respironics was developed to offer comfort and ease of use while fitting a wide range of users. The first to offer options in headgear materials, the Wisp steps up to a new level of individual choice. Never losing site of the fact that mask comfort promotes successful therapy, the design of the Wisp is lightweight with minimal facial contact.
- Frame Choice - Fabric or Clear Silicone
- Multiple Size Cushions Included
- Minimal Contact Design
- Clear Line of Sight
- Easy to Fit and Seal
- Lightweight, Flexible Short Tube
- Hose Position Options
- Headgear Uses Convenient Magnetic Clips
The unique frame of the Wisp is offered in two formats - Clear Silicone or Fabric. The molded silicone is lightweight and flexible with smooth surfaces. For a different feel, select the fabric covered frame. Extending yet another choice, each side of the fabric frame has different material for different feels. The modular frames are interchangeable and reversible.
Cushion - Minimal Contact & Multiple Sizes
The Wisp cushion is small and lightweight with a minimum of silicone touching the face. Three sizes of cushions are included with the Wisp, sizes Petite; Small / Medium and Large. The mask comes packaged with the size Small/Medium cushion in place and can easily be changed with the Large or XL cushion. Also available as a separate item is size Size Petite Cushion for Wisp.
Minimal Design - Clear View
The headgear and frame design is the source of support and seal for the Wisp omitting the need for a forehead support. Having nothing on the forehead makes for a more comfortable therapy experience. People who enjoy watching TV or reading before going to sleep will appreciate the clear field of view.
Flexible Short Tube
The lightweight and flexible short tube included with the Wisp connects to the swivel elbow. It serves as the connection between the long hose and the cushion - allowing for movement without losing the seal. The tube can be disconnected from the elbow for cleaning. Offering choice of hose position, the short tube can be secured to the headgear using the crown loop keeping the hose up and out of the way.
Headgear Uses Convenient Magnetic Clips
When purchasing the Wisp Nasal Mask - Fit Pack, you'll receive convenient magnetic headgear clips that make it easy to put on and take off the mask. The magnetic clips anchor the headgear to the frame, providing stability and comfort and make it easy to remove the mask when needed.
Be aware, currently the Wisp WITHOUT Headgear includes standard, non-magnetic headgear clips. The magnetic clips are only included with this Fit Pack.
OPTIONAL: Pad-a-Cheek Pads for Wisp Nasal Mask
These optional fabric wraps add an additional layer of softness to the face, providing a buffer between the mask headgear and the face. This helps reduce the appearance of red marks while making the mask more comfortable to wear.Headgear Sizing

Fitting the Wisp
- Fitting may be done sitting upright.
- Detach the elbow and short tube from the mask frame by squeezing the quick release tabs on the elbow.
- Unsnap one side of the headgear by twisting the headgear clip away from the frame.
- To use the Wisp without the clips remove them and thread the headgear through the frame slots.
- Place the cushion lightly on the nose.
- Attach the clip to the frame and adjust as needed to position the mask.
- Wisp headgear is intended to be worn loosely, allowing for two fingers to fit between the strap and head.
- The headgear should lay flat along the back of the head.
- Attach the elbow and short tube to the mask frame and attach the long hose to the short tube
- Use the headgear crown loop to secure the short tube up, over the head.
- Turn on the machine blowing at the therapy pressure - lay down.
- Turn the head side to side to check the seal.
- If needed, pull the cushion away from the nose and reposition lightly on the nose.
The manufacturer offers the following information to assist in selecting the correct size cushion for the Wisp. Measure from the outside of the nose from one side to the other. Do not measure only the nares or nasal openings, but the entire width of the nose.
- P = Approx 1 1/8 in
- S/M = Approx 1 1/2 in
- L = Approx 1 7/8 in
- XL = Approx 2 1/4 in
Where do I find the size?
The mask frame does not have an identifiable size because it offers a universal fit to each size of the Wisp nasal cushions.
To find the size of the nasal cushion, look at the bottom of the silicone cushion, where the mask frame and nasal cushion connect. A large, black letter will indicate the size of the nasal cushion.
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 Wisp Nasal CPAP Mask is X1. Please Note: System One Resistance Control is for System One Machines only.
The manufacturer suggests cleaning the mask cushion, short tube and frame daily using warm water and a mild detergent that does not contain lotions or antibacterial properties. Rinse thoroughly with running water and allow to air dry out of direct sunlight.
The headgear should be hand washed weekly using warm water and a mild detergent and allowed to air dry. The headgear should not be cleaned in a washing machine.
Frame Option Considerations
The Clear and Fabric Frames are the same size and function. The only difference between the two is in the material. The Clear Frame is easier to clean and maintain and may have a longer life. It can soaked for cleaning. The Fabric Frame is lighter weight and more comfortable but may not be as durable. The Fabric Frame should be wiped clean, not soaked.
Using the Wisp With Oxygen
The Wisp mask does not have an oxygen port. However, it can be used with an oxygen supply adding the Oxygen Enrichment Adapter the therapy circuit. The Oxygen Enrichment Adapter can be fit between the machine and the long tube or the mask and the long tube. It will work with any standard, non-heated CPAP Tube.
THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS MAGNETS and may not be suitable for anyone with an implanted medical device such as a pacemaker or defibrillator. If you have one of these devices, please keep the magnets at least 50mm away from these implanted devices.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Are prescriptions required for mask, machine, humidifier, and EPAP purchases?
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.

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.
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:
- 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.
- Are mask cushions interchangeable with other mask frames or can I use a different size cushion on the same frame?
- The answer to this question depends on the mask. In most cases, the mask frame will only accept cushions or pillows made for that specific mask. However, there are a few variations to this rule: ResMed's Mirage SoftGel Nasal CPAP Mask and Mirage Activa LT Nasal CPAP Mask are examples of the exception. In this case, both masks use the same mask frame; therefore, the cushions for the two masks are interchangeable. The EasyFit Masks by DeVilbiss offer different cushion types such as gel or silicone, which are interchangeable between the mask frames.
As to whether or not you can use different size cushions for a specific mask on the same mask frame, this also depends on the mask. Some mask frames are compatible with multiple cushion or pillow sizes, while other mask frames only fit cushions of the same size. This information is provided on the product pages. Please review the page of the specific product you are interested in to learn if you will need a different size mask frame for each size of cushion or pillow.
