If you use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine for sleep apnea, you are already taking a step on improving your health.
However, part of having a CPAP machine involves routine cleaning. Without proper cleaning, you may actually be harming your health. Manufacturers, suppliers and sleep physicians all recommend regular cleaning of CPAP equipment. The mask, tubing and water chamber should be cleaned on a daily, or weekly basis with mild soap and hot water.
This cleaning requirement may be an ideal that not everyone can live up to. In fact, some patients NEVER clean their equipment. This may lead to significant problems, including:
• Minerals may accumulate in the water chamber
• Mucus may collect in the mask
• Germs may be found in the tubing
• Mold may grow in moist environments
The potential risks with unclean equipment could also be direct exposure to bacteria, viruses and molds. This may raise the possibility of nasty colds, sinus infections and pneumonia.
So Clean offers a simple way to sanitize your entire CPAP system by eliminating bacteria, germs and other pathogens.
The SoClean sanitizes CPAP equipment-your mask, hose and water chamber-without requiring you to take your equipment apart. Complete sanitizing is accomplished without the use of messy chemicals or water. To use, you simply place your CPAP mask inside the SoClean device, close the lid, and it will start cleaning and sanitizing automatically.
It uses activated oxygen, the same sanitizing process used for water purification. The cleaning cycle time is approximately two hours. The use of SoClean destroys 99.9% of CPAP germs and bacteria.
Using SoClean makes CPAP therapy a healthier and easier experience.
