You don’t use the same toothbrush for months on end, so why keep using worn CPAP equipment?!
Daily usage of your CPAP equipment can cause it to wear out quickly, resulting in discomfort and reduced effectiveness. CPAP mask cushions can deteriorate, causing air leaks and uncomfortable fit. CPAP filters can get worn or clogged, causing you to breathe in dirty air. CPAP tubing gets small tears, resulting in lower air pressure than you need. CPAP headgear and chinstraps get stretched out, which leads to over-tightening and discomfort. CPAP water tanks can experience mineral buildup, which can trap bacteria. And CPAP machines should be replaced every 5 years to take advantage of new technologies and new comfort features.
To help you understand the recommended replacement schedule for your CPAP supplies, we’ve put together an easy-to-follow guide for key CPAP components. Follow this schedule to ensure you’re getting the most from your sleep apnea therapy.
