This is the support page for the FlexiFi 406 Nasal CPAP Mask by Fisher and Paykel. This page is intended to help you with all of your post-purchase needs. Simply click on the links below to be taken directly to the section within the page.
Q What needs to be included on my prescription?
A If an "Rx Required" CPAP mask is the only item in your order, your prescription would only need to state for "CPAP Supplies" or "CPAP equipment". If you are purchasing other "Rx Required" products, there may be other prescription requirements that will be listed in FAQ tab of the product page.
Q Is headgear required for this item?
A Yes, headgear is required for this item. However, if your mask frame and cushion have worn out but your headgear is still functioning properly, you can purchase the assembly kit HERE.
Q Does this mask have any parts in common with the FlexiFit 405 and 407?
A The FlexiFit 406 and 407 both use the same glider strap and elbow, neither of which are sold on ApriaDirect. As well, they both share the glider strap with the FlexiFit 405. Therefore, if you plan to transition between any of the masks, you are best to buy a completely new mask.
Q How many sizes is this mask available in?
A This mask is available in one size - petite. It is meant for smaller faces.
In order to avoid hygienic issues or improper mask usage, regular replacement is essential. Nasal mask cushions are constantly in close contact with your face, and its position on your nose can make you more prone to a nasty nasal infection if you do not replace frequently. Therefore, you should replace your FlexiFit 406 Nasal CPAP Mask Foam Cushion and Silicone Seal Kit, which can be purchased HERE, 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 FlexiFit 406 Nasal CPAP Mask Frame, but instead sell the FlexiFit 406 Nasal CPAP Mask Assembly Kit, which includes absolutely everything you need besides the headgear, and can be purchased HERE. The FlexiFit 406 Nasal CPAP Mask Assembly Kit 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 FlexiFit 406 Nasal CPAP Mask Headgear should be replaced every six months.
