Filters are a critical part of CPAP therapy. They protect your lungs by filtering air and trapping large particles from entering your airways, including fibers, cat and dog hair, and dander. There are several types of CPAP filters that may suit your needs.
Reusable filters should be hand washed and air dried frequently, especially if you smoke or have pets. They should be replaced every three months to maintain your machine and successful sleep therapy. Disposable fine filters are capable of collecting and trapping small particles that may inhabit our air, such as smoke, dust, and dirt. Disposable filters cannot be washed and should be replaced once dirt is noticed, once a month, or whichever occurs first. Bacteria filters are capable of collecting and trapping Ultra-Fine particles in the air. For allergy sufferers and/or those with sensitive airways wanting the highest level of filtration, bacteria filters are recommended as an added layer of comfort and protection during your sleep therapy. Bacteria filters cannot be washed and should be replaced once dirt is noticed—once a month, or whichever occurs first.
