It's Cold & Flu Season!

January 26, 2018

 

 

As we approach winter, cold and flu season is a concern for most people. Dirty supplies used with your PAP equipment can cause respiratory issues and stretched-out mask parts can prevent optimal sleep. These circumstances can present a dangerous combination for your health.

 

WHY? Bacteria builds up in your mask or tube when left unchanged, and mask cushions can lose their seal over time and cause air to leak. When filters aren’t replaced, your device allows dust and other bacteria to enter your airway.

 

Not to worry though, there is good news! By changing your supplies regularly, you can ensure a healthy night’s sleep. Since most insurance plans allow for supply replacement, it is important to follow their recommended timelines below.

 

REPLACE MONTHLY:

Mask Cushions and Pillows

Disposable Filters

 

REPLACE EVERY 3 MONTHS:

Mask

Tubing (Standard or Heated)

 

REPLACE EVERY 6 MONTHS:

Headgear and Chin Straps

Non-Disposable Filters
