Q Is the Mirage Activa LT Nasal CPAP Mask the same as the Mirage Micro Nasal CPAP Mask?

>Active Cell Technology Explanation
Nasal mask cushions are constantly in contact with your face, and have the potential to pass on respiratory and other infections to you if you do not replace them frequently. With frequent replacement and daily cleaning of your Mirage Activa Nasal Cushion and other supplies, you have minimal risks of contracting an infection as a result of using a CPAP. The replacement ActiveCell cushion and clip can be purchased HERE and the replacement DoubleGel cushion and clip can be purchased HERE. It is recommended you replace each of these every two weeks.
CPAP mask tubing is susceptible to developing small holes or tears which may not even be visible to the naked eye. These can cause air leaks, and if your tube is leaking, you may not be receiving your prescribed therapy setting from your CPAP. This may cause you to feel as if your sleep therapy is not working as intended, even though it is. Therefore, you should replace your tubing (Check out some tubing offered by ApriaDirect HERE) once every three months.
Your frame system is in close proximity to your face, and therefore needs to be replaced relatively frequently. However, it is not directly touching your face, which is why it doesn't need to be replaced quite so often. We do not sell the Mirage Activa LT Frame, but instead sell the Mirage Activa LT Assembly Kit , which includes all components of the Mirage Activa LT Nasal CPAP Mask besides the headgear. The Mirage Activa LT Assembly Kit can be purchased HERE. The Mirage Activa LT should be replaced once every three months.
Over time, your CPAP headgear and chin straps may become stretched and lose their elasticity, leading to over-tightening and discomfort. They can also trap bacteria from sweat and moisture. Therefore, your Mirage Activa LT Nasal CPAP Mask Headgear should be replaced every six months. The Mirage Headgear can be purchased HERE.
