Replacing Your Equipment

To get the best results from your therapy it is very important to ensure that you replace your equipment according to the recommended schedule.

Devices & tubing replacement

Disposable filter
If the environment is particularly humid or dusty, then the disposable filter won't last as long. Visual inspection is the key to determining disposable filter life.
Every
CPAP device
The typical life span of a CPAP device is 5 to 7 years. We highly recommend getting a backup CPAP machine especially if your current machine is more than a couple of years old. That way you'll never be without a CPAP machine, even when one of yours stops working.
Every
Tubing
For maximum comfort we recommend replacing your tubing regularly.

Humidifier replacement

Humidifier water tub
Humidifier water chambers may become discolored, cracked, cloudy or even pitted due to the mineral levels found in most tap and drinking water. As the material deteriorates, cracks may trap bacteria from moisture.
Every
Heated humidifier
If you are concerned that your humidifier is not working, place the unit in warm-up mode and allow it to run for one minute. If the heater plate does not heat up in warm-up mode, contact your medical equipment provider.
