There are different types of filters for CPAP machines, such as foam filters, disposable white filters, disposable standard filters, disposable hypoallergenic filters, and pollen filters. Reusable foam filters are placed at the air inlet of the machine and are designed to trap various air particles. It is recommended that the filters be replaced every 3 months or sooner if the filter begins to wear out. The filters collect very small particles and are very useful for people suffering from allergies.
CPAP humidifiers are an important part of CPAP treatment for patients with sleep apnea. A CPAP humidifier is a device that adds moisture to the air supplied through a CPAP machine, which helps reduce symptoms of dryness, irritation, and congestion. The CPAP humidifier fills with water and uses a heating element to evaporate the water and add moisture to the air. The water to be used is recommended to be deionized for less salt accumulation in the humidifier. The amount of moisture can be adjusted to suit each person's needs.
