• This CPAP mask should be used only with CPAP
or bi-level systems recommended by your physician or respiratory therapist. A mask should not
be used unless the CPAP or bi-level system is
turned on and operating properly. The vent hole
or holes associated with the mask should never
be blocked. Explanation of the Warning: CPAP
and bi-level systems are intended to be used
with special masks with connectors which have
vent holes to allow continuous flow of air out of
the mask. When the CPAP or bi-level machine
is turned on and functioning properly, new air
from the CPAP or bi-level machine flushes the
exhaled air out through the attached mask
exhalation port. However, when the CPAP or
bi-level machine is not operating, enough fresh
air will not be provided through the mask, and
exhaled air may be rebreathed. Rebreathing of
exhaled air for longer than several minutes can,
in some circumstances, lead to suffocation. This
warning applies to most models of CPAP and
bi-level systems.
• At low CPAP pressures, the flow through the
exhalation port may be inadequate to clear all
exhaled gas from the tubing. Some rebreathing
may occur.
• At a fixed flow rate of supplemental oxygen
flow the inhaled oxygen concentration will vary,
depending on the pressure settings, patient
breathing pattern, mask selection and the leak
rate. This warning applies to most CPAP or bilevel systems.
• If oxygen is used with the CPAP or bi-level system, the oxygen flow must be turned off when
the system is not in operation. Explanation of
the Warning: When the CPAP or bi-level system
is not in operation and the oxygen flow is left on,
oxygen delivered in the ventilator tubing may
accumulate within the CPAP or bi-level system
enclosure. Oxygen accumulated in the CPAP or
bi-level system will create a risk of fire. This warning applies to most CPAP or bi-level systems.
• Oxygen accelerates fires. Keep the CPAP or
bi-level system and oxygen container away from
heat, open flames, any oil substance, or other
sources of ignition. Do not smoke in the area
near the device or the oxygen container.
• Some users may experience skin redness. If this
occurs, consult your healthcare professional.
Important! Hand wash mask before use.
Helpful Tips for Mask Comfort

Cleaning Instructions
For Multi-Patient Use Reusable. Contact Respironics Customer Service at

For Home Use: Begin by removing or disconnecting the headgear from the
mask. Clean the headgear at least once each week or more often if needed.
Fasten thehook tabs on the straps so that they don’t catch other garments in
the laundry. Some Respironics’ masks allow the cushion to be disassembled
from the faceplate. The user has the option of disassembling the cushion
from the faceplate before cleaning.

Step 4
Step 5
Hold the mask cushion gently over your nose. If the forehead
support does not rest comfortably against your forehead, press
the ridged sides at the bottom of the support arm, and slide
the arm up or down the bar until the arm is in a position that is
comfortable for you. Slide the headgear over your head. You
may want to disconnect one of the swivel clips before putting
on the headgear. Reconnect the swivel clip after you have the
headgear in position.
Connect the flexible tubing (included with your CPAP or bi-level
device) to the swivel on the mask.
Turn on the airflow.
Lie down and breathe normally through your nose, keeping
your lips closed. You may need to adjust the forehead support
arm to reduce leaks or reduce pressure points at the bridge or
above the lip.
Unhook the straps and gradually tighten
them until the mask has minimal leaks and fits
comfortably.

• Clean your face and mask thoroughly before
each use.
• Make sure the mask is the correct size for your

cause damage to the mask.
• Replace the cushion and forehead pad if they
become hardened or deformed.

Cushion Removal and Reattachment
Remove the cushion by detaching its retaining
ring from the faceplate. Do this by unhooking
the side and bottom clips of the ring from their
connection points on the faceplate. Take the
ring off of the cushion. Clean or discard the
cushion if necessary. Place the cleaned or new
cushion on the faceplate, making sure that the
two slits at the bottom of the cushion catch
on and fit securely into the two tabs at the
bottom of the faceplate. Place the retaining
ring around the cushion. Connect the ring clips
to the faceplate, starting with the top clip. Push
the retaining ring into the faceplate until you
hear a clicking sound.
