The ultimate guide to cleaning a CPAP machine (step by step)

CPAP machines are used to treat obstructive sleep apnea. If you use one regularly, it is very important to keep all the pieces of your CPAP system clean and bacteria-free.

    1. You will after you get a few respiratory illnesses that could put you in the hospital.

      I had a good friend who had the same attitude. He cleaned his machine when he felt like it. Because he failed to properly care for the machine parts, parts of the machine failed sooner than expected, and some tiny pieces actually got into his lungs. After several weeks in the hospital (that cost a small fortune, despite having good insurance). They sent him home with a new machine, and better cleaning instructions. He worked on losing weight and getting healthier, because like you, he was too lazy to protect his health with the CPAP.
