Replacing CPAP filters
Replacing the CPAP filter is an important part of the maintenance of your CPAP machine. It is recommended to replace the filter (or filters, if there are more than one) for your own hygiene as well. The filters keep dust, pollen and pet hair at a distance. Thanks to a clean filter, clean air flows into your CPAP mask, providing you a comfortable CPAP therapy. Please read your CPAP (or BiPAP) machine manual for more information on how to replace the filters.
Fine dust filters and gross particle filters
Some machines have both a fine dust filter and a gross particle filter (foam filter), other machines only have a fine dust filter. The air first passes through the gross particle filter, which stops large particles and pet hair. Then the air flows through the fine dust filter, which blocks small (dust) particles. The fine dust filter should be replaced once a month or if it shows discoloration. The gross particle filter should be replaced every six months or when it starts to crumble. We advise you to clean the gross particle filter weekly with a damp cloth. Fine dust filters can’t be cleaned.
