Equipment Replacement Schedule
How often should CPAP equipment be replaced?
The majority of supplies associated with sleep therapy are disposable. Headgear, filters, masks and tubing lose thier ability to function properly when used past their recommended life span. Filters can clog and allow dirt to enter your airway, a headgear that is stretched can lead to over tightening and pressure point pain, and masks can develop leaks.
