Replacing tubing and filters

Proper maintenance of components is key to your patient’s sleep apnoea treatment journey. Here are our guidelines for replacing device filters and tubing for optimal therapy.

How often should tubing be replaced?

We recommend that you replace your patient’s tubing regularly for maximum comfort. Typically, this replacement should occur after 6 to 12 months of use. 

How often should filters be replaced?

If the environment is particularly humid or dusty, then the disposable filter won’t last for long. We recommend that your patient visually inspects the filter every month to determine whether the filter needs to be disposed. The recommended replacement is every 6 months or before, depending on the filter’s state.
