A sleep apnea diagnosis comes with the recommendation of sleeping with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, which, when well maintained, can completely change a patient’s life by giving back the gift of quality sleep. It makes the upkeep process worth the effort, and you’ll soon see life return to normal as you adjust to your new nighttime routine. 

Part of maintaining your CPAP machine is knowing when all of the parts need replacing. The schedules vary, so set regular reminders to order new parts. You can also take the guesswork out of the equation by subscribing to a CPAP supplies delivery service.

Why You Need to Replace Your CPAP Supplies

Depending on the type of CPAP mask you choose, the replacement frequency will vary. Nasal mask cushions and nasal pillows should be replaced every 2 weeks because they sit in your nose and on your face. Full face masks, however, can be replaced every month because only the outline sits on your face and is exposed to your facial skin oils. If you’re noticing excessive leakage before your scheduled replacement, you may need to shop around for a new mask type or else replace it earlier. Every patient is unique, so both are viable options. 

Replacing Your Air Filters and Tubing

Some CPAP machines have two layers of air filters, but all disposable filters should be replaced every 2 weeks to ensure that you’re breathing in clean air. This is especially true for patients with pets, and you may want to replace the filters more frequently to combat the pet hair and dander. Reusable filters should be cleaned and replaced on a less frequent cadence, depending on the type of machine you have. 

 

Air cleanliness is also dependent on your CPAP tubing, which breaks down from moisture and air pressure, developing small holes and tears. Replace your tubing every 3 months to avoid this. 

Replacing Your Headgear and Chin Strap

If this is applicable to your setup, replace your headgear and chin strap every 6 months to make sure your CPAP mask is securely strapped to your face and not leaking. After 6 months, the straps tend to lose elasticity and lead to leaks or discomfort, but new headgear and a chin strap quickly solves this issue.  

Replacing Your Humidifier Water Chamber

The minerals in standard tap water cause humidifier water chambers to become cloudy, discolored or even cracked, which can trap bacteria. This is why medical professionals suggest replacing your water chamber every 6 months or sooner if you live in an area with hard water.

Replacing Your CPAP Machine

Daily use of a CPAP machine wears it out after a few years, so it’s recommended to replace the entire machine every 5 years. Experts also suggest having backup CPAP machine in case your current one needs repairs.
