If you’re wondering about cleaning your CPAP machine you’re not alone. In fact, here at Sleep Clinic Services one of the questions we get asked a lot is “How do I clean my CPAP”?And because we want your CPAP treatment to be as hassle-free as possible we’ve created a quick guide to cleaning your CPAP machine.
Even if you’ve been using CPAP for years it’s always a great idea to refresh your memory when it comes to cleaning your CPAP machine. A lapse in regular cleaning can lead to a build-up of mould spores, viruses, mildew, fungus and bacteria.
Have you ever thought about having a home sleep study? If you struggle with daytime sleepiness then you may already know what’s causing it. Perhaps you find it hard to wind down after a busy day, or you have an infant in the house? But if you don’t know, and you really need a good night’s sleep, a sleep study may be the answer. So, do you go to a sleep lab or opt for a home sleep study?
If you have a CPAP machine you need to change your CPAP supplies including your mask regularly. Otherwise, you’ll start to notice that you’re no longer getting a good night’s sleep. And then your health will suffer. You’ll feel tired during the day and you may start to wonder if your CPAP machine is even working properly.
