If you're disturbing other people with your loud snoring, or if you feel drowsy even after getting enough sleep during the night, there's a possibility that you have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that could lead to further health complications. One possible treatment for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine.

An important aspect of having a CPAP machine is ensuring that it remains clean and dry. Simply Medical has all the CPAP cleaning supplies you need to keep your equipment in tip-top shape.

What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition in which your breathing stops for at least 10 seconds during your sleep. There are two common types of sleep apnea: obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA).

Obstructive sleep apnea happens when your throat muscles relax, which forces your airway to narrow or close when you breathe. On the other hand, central sleep apnea is a signaling issue where your brain fails to deliver signals to your breathing muscles.

Sleep apnea symptoms include:

  • Loud Snoring
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Sudden mood changes
  • High blood pressure
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Unusual sleepiness and fatigue during the day
What Does a CPAP Machine Help With?
If you're experiencing sleep apnea, your doctor might recommend using a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. The CPAP machine delivers constant air pressure through a tube connected to the mask you will wear while sleeping.

With steady pressurized air being delivered to you from the CPAP machine, your sleep quality may improve and risks of incurring health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart conditions, or stroke may be lessened.

But of course, using a CPAP machine is not smooth sailing right away. The masks come in different sizes and types, so you should consult a doctor or healthcare provider to ensure you purchase the right one for you. You also need to properly clean your CPAP machine to eliminate any bacteria or mold that could form in the device.

How Do You Deep Clean Your CPAP Machine?
Make sure to read the directions for cleaning instructions with your machine. Typically, it's not that hard to deep clean your CPAP machine. These are some common steps to clean your machine manually:

1. Always make sure that you have unplugged your CPAP machine from the electrical outlet, or disassemble the battery if it is integrated.

2. Detach the mask from the tubing, then remove the tubing and the water chamber from the CPAP machine. If you find disassembling your CPAP machine a bit of a hassle, there is a way to clean the machine without removing its parts.

3. Fill a washbasin or a small sink with warm, soapy water. You can now submerge the mask, tubing, and other connectors in the water for at least 30 minutes. There are also mask cleaning wipes for a quick daily clean-up.

4. Rinse the parts to remove any soap in them, then allow them to air dry.

5. If the external surfaces of your CPAP machine have accumulated dust, you could use a soft cloth to clean them. When every part is dry, you are now ready to reassemble your CPAP machine.
