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.

Mask Replacement

Full face / Nasal Cushion, Nasal Pillows
Over time and use, the silicone on the cushion or the nasal pillow can become soft and not be as efficient...
Over time and use, headgear may become stretched and lose elasticity, leading to over tightening and discomfort.

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.
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.
For maximum comfort we recommend replacing your tubing regularly.

Humidifier replacement

Heated humidifier
You'll know your humidifier is broken when the heater plate no longer heats up. For humidifiers with variable heat settings the different heat settings might have no effect.
