If you have sleep apnea, you know how important it is to regularly replace your CPAP equipment
. While it can be easy to tell when you need a new mask, cushion, filters or tubing, it can be harder to know when it’s time to replace the actual CPAP device.
In general, you should replace your CPAP machine
every five years. Luckily, most health insurers will usually cover a new CPAP device for you in that same time frame. You can also use funds from your HSA or FSA to pay for your replacement, giving you the comfort and convenience of a new CPAP machine without the additional cost.
By getting a new CPAP machine, you can experience the following features:
Quieter motors: With more advanced technology, the motors on the latest CPAP machines, such as the ResMed AirSense 10 and Respironics DreamStation, are much quieter. This makes for a more peaceful sleep for you and your partner.
Improved humidification: Today’s humidifiers have also been revamped and are lighter, more compact, and easier to clean than ever before. The AirSense 10, for instance, has a built-in humidifier that is simple and convenient to use.
Lower pressure: Newer models of CPAP devices can help regulate pressures while you sleep, making for a more comfortable rest. The AirSense 10 offers AutoRamp, which keeps the pressure low while you fall asleep and automatically increases it to your prescribed levels once you’re sleep. The DreamStation also has auto-adjusting power technology to give you that same comfort level.
