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.
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.
