Other CPAP Mask Parts
Masks come in three different styles: Nasal, Nasal Pillow, and Full Face.
Each mask has 3 major parts: the Frame, the Cushion, and the Headgear.
There are other minor parts to each mask that also play an important part in its function.
All masks are universal to the CPAP 6ft tubing, heated and nonheated. Therefore you can use any mask you need with any CPAP. (With the exception of the ResMed AirMini travel CPAP).
Every mask has a tube connector to pressure fit the 6ft CPAP tubing to.
This tube connector is removable on some masks such as Fisher & Paykel Eson 2. These removable connectors (gray piece on the end of the elbow) easily become stuck at the end of the CPAP tubing and reattach to the mask easily. You may not even notice this has happened until you replace the tubing. (Tip: Always check the end of your tubes before throwing them away. If you cannot pinch the flex end together, there is a connector hiding in there. Often it is in there so long you believe it belongs to the tubing vs the mask. Connectors are always on the mask.) If you need to replace the connector, Respshop has you covered.
From diffuser filters to connectors for the Airmini, to a Heat Moisture Exchange for the Z2, to clips for the Mirage Quattro, to the magnets for the N20 nasal mask, Respshop has all the small parts you will need.- by Patty McGuire CPSGT
