FitLife Headgear Replacement
One of the more unique CPAP masks available, the Respironics FitLife extends around your whole face rather than just your nose and mouth, reducing the pressure on your nose and cheeks that may arise from other CPAP masks. During use, the flow from your machine will inflate your cushion to form a perfect seal around your face helping to reduce leaks and improve your therapy. The headgear is ergonomic and will fit on the back of your head, resting comfortably and holding your mask in place.
Ergonomic CPAP Mask Headgear
Fitting snuggly on the back of your head, the FitLife headgear was designed by Respironics to hold your mask firmly in place to help eliminate CPAP mask leaks which can have negative effects on the treatment for your sleep apnea therapy. The straps cross your head in an X pattern and will help relieve itching and discomfort.
- X crossing pattern for itch free use
- Secure your CPAP mask in place to reduce leaks
- Reduces pressure on the nose and cheeks with a total face design
The large sized headgear will work with the large cushions, while the small size was designed for the small cushion. Know what size of cushion you originally ordered when purchasing a new headgear to make sure that the mask fits correctly.

How often should I change my CPAP mask headgear?
If a clip is broken, or your headgear is seeing sings of wear and tear that negative effect your therapy, its time to change the headgear. Always pay attention to your seal, and if your machine tracks mask leaks, check that number frequently to determine whether or not you need to replace your headgear or CPAP mask cushion.
What is the benefits of using a total face CPAP mask?
As with any mask, its all about comfort and performance for the user. Some individuals may struggle to wear full face or nasal masks due to unwanted pressure on the face, in which case total face masks may be preferred.
