Equipment Care and Cleaning

sleep apnea equipment

Daily Cleaning

Place the CPAP/BIPAP tubing, your nasal mask or pillows and headgear into a sink with warm soapy water. (use a small amount of mild dish detergent) Agitate these supplies in the water for approximately 5 minutes. Rinse well with warm water and allow to dry until all moisture is gone.

Helpful hints:

  • Hang the tubing over your shower rod or towel bar to air dry.
  • Place the mask and headgear on a towel to air dry.
  • Hanging the headgear from a clothes hanger or wall hook will help it to dry faster.
  • Wash your tubing, mask or nasal pillows and headgear every morning. This will allow enough time for your supplies to completely dry.
  • Wipe down the CPAP/BIPAP machine with a damp cloth weekly.

Weekly Cleaning

The filter at the back of your machine should be washed with tap water weekly. Simply rinse the filter under running water, squeezing the filter to make sure that all dust is eliminated. Next, blot the filter with a clean towel to remove most of the moisture. Now it is ready to be placed back in your machine. We also recommend that you replace your filter at least annually.

The white filter is disposable and should be replaced monthly, or sooner if it becomes really dirty. Replace the white filter with one from your replacement filter pack. THE WHITE FILTER IS NOT TO BE WASHED. (not all machines have a white filter)

Humidifier Care

Clean once weekly with warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly. To disinfect, place vinegar/water solution (1 part vinegar 3-5 parts water) in clean humidifier. Soak for 30 minutes and rinse thoroughly, or place in top rack of dishwasher if applicable.

Yearly Maintenance

We recommend that you send in your machine once a year (no charge other than shipping) to make sure that the pressure is set correctly and everything is working properly. We will change the pressure for you at any time with a doctor’s prescription.

    The sleep study was fine. Room was clean, they tried to make me comfortable. The tech I had was wonderful. My complaint with practice is never seeing a Dr but getting charged huge fees. Fees which I set up autopay for by calling a different office only to find out a couple months later that the payments weren't coming out of my checking account. My invoices by mail stopped coming after setting up the payment plan. When I realized they weren't coming out I called the Grove City office to check on it, I always have to leave a message but this office is wonderful with calling back and leaving a message. I was told to call a different number which I did a few times with no call backs. I have now emailed twice and still no response. I just want to pay my bill. There is no online pay option either. Please just take my money and not send me to collections! I have worked hard to maintain an excellent credit score and I do not want it ruined by your office!
