For a full list of compatible devices for this mask, see the Mask/Device Compatibility List on www.resmed.com/downloads/masks. If you do not have internet access, please contact your ResMed representative.

Fitting
  1. Twist and pull both magnetic clips away from the frame.
  2. With both lower headgear straps released, hold the mask against your face and pull the headgear over your head. Headgear check: Ensure that the ResMed logo on the headgear is facing outwards and is upright when the headgear is put on.
  3. Bring the lower straps below your ears, and attach the magnetic clip to the frame.
  4. Undo the fastening tabs on the upper headgear straps. Adjust the straps evenly until the mask sits comfortably just over the nose. Reattach the fastening tabs.
  5. Undo the fastening tabs on the lower headgear straps. Adjust the straps evenly until the mask is stable. Reattach the fastening tabs.
  6. Connect the device air tubing to the short tube. Attach the elbow to the mask by pressing the side buttons and pushing the elbow into the mask, ensuring it clicks in on both sides.
  7. Your mask and headgear should be positioned as shown in the illustration.
Adjustment

If necessary, slightly adjust the position of the mask for the most comfortable fit. Ensure that the cushion is not creased and the headgear is not twisted.

  1. Turn on your device so that it is blowing air.
    Adjustment tips:
    • To resolve any leaks at the upper part of the mask, adjust the upper headgear straps. For the lower part, adjust the lower headgear straps. Adjust only enough for a comfortable seal.
    • The upper strap adjustment is the key to seal and comfort.
    • Do not overtighten the lower straps because they mainly serve to keep the cushion in position.

Cleaning your mask

It is important to follow the steps below to get the best performance out of your mask.

  • As part of good hygiene, always follow cleaning instructions and use a mild liquid detergent. Some cleaning products may damage the mask, its parts and their function, or leave harmful residual vapours that could be inhaled if not rinsed thoroughly.
  • Regularly clean your mask and its components to maintain the quality of your mask and to prevent the growth of germs that can adversely affect your health.

If any visible deterioration of a system component is apparent (cracking, crazing, tears etc), the component should be discarded and replaced.



Daily/After each use

Before cleaning, take the mask components apart according to the disassembly instructions.

  1. Soak and agitate the cushion, elbow and short tube in warm water (approximately 86°F/30°C) using a mild liquid detergent for up to 10 minutes.
  2. Clean the components with a soft bristle brush, paying particular attention to the small vent holes on the elbow.
  3. Thoroughly rinse the components under warm flowing drinking quality water.
  4. Inspect each component to ensure that they are visually clean and free of detergent residue. If required, repeat washing.
  5. Allow the components to dry out of direct sunlight before assembling.

Weekly cleaning

The magnetic clips can be left on for washing.

  1. Soak and agitate the separated headgear and frame in warm water (approximately 86°F/30°C) using a mild liquid detergent for up to 10 minutes.
  2. To rinse the components, repeatedly squeeze them under warm flowing drinking quality water until it is free of detergent residue.
  3. Squeeze the components to remove excess water.
  4. Allow the components to dry out of direct sunlight before assembling.

Disassembly

If the mask is connected to your device, disconnect the device air tubing from the short tube.

  1. Undo the fastening tabs on the upper headgear straps. Pull the straps out of the frame. Tip: Keep the magnetic clips attached to the lower headgear straps to easily distinguish the upper and lower straps when reassembling.
  2. Remove the elbow from the mask by pressing the side button and pulling the elbow away.
  3. Hold the frame by placing your thumb over the side slot. Pull the cushion away from the frame.


Reassembly

  1. Push the cushion into the frame. The frame has a shape that allows you to insert the cushion only one way.
  2. With the ResMed logo on the headgear facing outside and upright, thread the upper headgear straps into the frame slots from the inside. Fold them over to secure.
