It’s very important to follow a strict schedule of replacing worn and used parts for continued success in treating your obstructive sleep apnea. The following guidelines have been established for replacement parts.

Neurological Wellness Clinic will work directly with you and your insurance company to ensure that you have adequate replacement parts for your CPAP device. We also offer a convenient automatic resupply program.

Re-order Supplies

CPAP Mask Filters

Filters
Filters should be addressed weekly by removing and shaking residue from them. Disposable filters should be completely replaced monthly to ensure air quality is maintained.

CPAP Mask Cushions

Mask Cushions
Always clean your mask cushions daily either with a mild soap and warm water or convenient CPAP wipes. This will help keep material pliable and maintain a good seal. Cushions should be replaced every one to three months, as needed.

CPAP Tubing

Tubing
Tubing should be rinsed daily and hung to dry to keep good air quality. The most popular used tubing is a 6′ performance tubing. Another option is heated climate controlled tubing, which fosters higher humidity with less condensation/water accumulation.

Tubing covers are also available for purchase. Tubing should be replaced every three months.

CPAP Mask Assembly

Full-Mask Assembly
Masks should be disassembled and cleaned with warm soapy water weekly. This ensures all parts continue to work as they should, keeping a good seal and fitting properly. Full-mask assembly should be replaced every three to six months, as needed.

CPAP Mask Headgear

Headgear
Headgear can be gently washed with warm water and a mild soap. Keeping headgear clean keeps a proper fit and helps reduce mask leakage. Headgear should be replaced every six months.

CPAP Mask Water Chambers / Humidifiers

Water Chambers/Humidifiers
Water chambers should be emptied daily and rinsed. Clean your water chamber with warm soapy water, making certain to rinse thoroughly. Some water chambers can be cleaned in the dishwasher, as well.

Replacing your water chamber every three to six months will keep your humidified air clean and fresh.
