Sleep Apnea is a potentially dangerous sleeping disorder, causing breathing to stop and start during sleep repeatedly.
Signs of sleep apnea can range from snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness to observed episodes of breathing cessation while sleeping. CPAP, BiPAP, APAP, and other sleep therapy devices help to alleviate these issues by delivering constant, pressured airflow directly to you as you sleep.
You use the sleep machine daily. Bacteria and mold can grow inside the tubes and in your mask.
An infection can occur due to bacteria, fungus, or mold found on the CPAP tubing or the mask. Also, the water used for the humidifier can contain different organisms that may be potentially harmful.
One of the most significant risks for developing an infection is allowing excess moisture to sit in the humidifier or tubing. That moisture can promote the growth of fungus or mold, which if inhaled into the lungs through CPAP, can make you sick.
Keeping the sleep machine clean, sterile, and germ-free is essential to ensure the longevity of the CPAP. Your health will also be guaranteed by receiving only clean and fresh air.
Cleaning CPAP mask and tubing is a daily necessity for CPAP users.
Replace your mask, tubing, and filters as recommended by the manufacturer. Your filter can help decrease the spread of bacteria.
Washing CPAP machine with water and soaps is easy but can be time-consuming. Tap water can have bacteria in it, which can potentially lead to a lung infection.
CPAP cleaners made specifically for CPAP machines also are a good option.
