If you missed our last blog, we talked about how to best clean and sanitize your CPAP tubing, which is recommended to be done at least once a week. You may be wondering about all of the other equipment that comes with your CPAP, though.
Masks, headgear, nasal pillows, and the water chamber should be cleaned daily, according to ResMed. Cleaning these items daily helps prevent dirt, dust, and oil buildup, and can help prevent serious illness or exacerbation of symptoms. Always follow the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions.
In order to clean the items most efficiently and thoroughly, separate all parts of the mask before placing all items into a sink or clean plastic tub full of warm, soapy water. Make sure to use mild, non-scented soap to avoid any harmful chemicals leaving residue on the equipment. Once you’ve ensured everything is clean, rinse with warm, drinking-quality water until you are certain all soap is washed off.
While cleaning is crucial to keeping your CPAP supplies safe to use, it is also important to sanitize them. The LiViliti Paptizer was designed to get rid of up to 99.9% of bacteria and germs that may remain after washing your CPAP supplies! It uses UVC LED technology for medical grade disinfection of ANY item that will fit in the box. After following the steps above, place the mask, headgear, nasal pillows, and water chamber in the Paptizer, press the Fast Sanitize option, and in just three minutes, your equipment is safe and ready to use again!
