Your Guide to Upgrading Your CPAP Machine

In general, you should replace your CPAP device after using it for about five years. Even if you think your machine is still working for you well, regularly upgrading it can better ensure the machine’s dependability. You’ll also be able to benefit from what the latest CPAP technology can offer you if you replace your CPAP machine.
 
Financially, a good time to upgrade your machine is after you’ve met your health insurance’s deductible. After you’ve met your deductible, your insurance will likely help cover the cost of the new CPAP machine, making it affordable with your budget.

Why Should You Upgrade Your CPAP Machine?

Besides ensuring that your machine keeps functioning properly, the biggest reason why you should upgrade your CPAP machine is to take advantage of the latest features and technology. Companies that make CPAP machines, such as RedMed and Respironics, are always innovating on the devices, making them easier to use and better for your health.
 
One of the best features in recent models of CPAP machines is an automated sensor that can adjust the pressure according to your changing needs. Typically, you would have to go to the doctor for a sleep study to figure out if changes to your body, such as losing or gaining weight, meant that you needed a different pressure level to treat your sleep apnea. With automated sensors, many people may skip the sleep study and still effectively treat their sleep apnea. The automated sensor can also help keep the pressure low while you’re awake so that you can fall asleep more easily. Once you are asleep, the machine can increase the pressure to the level that you need.  Once you are asleep, the machine can increase the pressure comfortably to the level that you need to maximize treatment.
 
The ResMed AirSense 10 CPAP and the Philips DreamStation Auto CPAP are both newer models that have this automated feature. They have quieter motors as well as improved humidification with the heated tubing to eliminate water condensation in the tubing. Both machines can be paired with most types of CPAP Masks too.  All of these features make it well worth it to upgrade your CPAP machine.
