When using a CPAP for eight hours or more per nights, room air goes into the machine, filters, through the tube, mask and nose. Microorganisms thrive in moist and matter. Don't worry, there is a simple process to keep the mask clean and yourself healthy.
1. Rinse the equipment with water. This can be done by running water over the equipment for 1 minute. 2. Make sure the equipment is properly air dried. All standing water from inside the tube should be allowed to drip away or out of the tube. CPAP tubes breakdown with use. They are not designed to last forever.
