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
1 month
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.

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.
