What Type of CPAP Do I Have and When Should I Replace My Tubing, Water chamber, Mask and Filters?

Let's start with the type of CPAP I have? At Hope Home Medical Supply ( we only carry one type, Resmed. So let's first discuss the different types (there are probably some older models out there but we're going to stick with the latest 3 from Resmed):

The 1st type we'll discuss is the S9 - When the S9 AutoSet hit the CPAP market, it was like a meteor had hit. Finally, a CPAP machine that breathed with the sleep apnea sufferer and not the other way around. Sadly, ResMed had announced that the S9 was discontinued in 2016.

S9 (Climateline) Tubing - SKU 36995 (6' in length) -

S9 Tubing - Too numerous to list but we sale the best on the market, Sunset brand (6' in length)

S9 Filters - Too numerous to list but we sale the best on the market, Sunset brand

The 2nd type of CPAP we'll discuss is the AirSense 10.

AirSense™ 10 is the world’s most widely used series of CPAP and APAP machines, each designed to deliver high-quality therapy for a better night’s sleep.

Each machine gives you access to myAir™ – a free online support program and app that syncs with your mobile or web-based device to provide a nightly sleep score, coaching and more to help you stay on track (only if it has the cellular technology, some don't).

Insurance will pay for a new CPAP every 5 years, Tubing every 3 months, 2 filters per month and water chamber every 6 months. Your mask is a little different: Headgear is every 6 months, cushions every month (nasal cushions every month as well) and full face mask (FF) every 3 months. In reality, unless you have excellent insurance, this is a industry standard that will cost you $$$ in the long run. If you clean and take care of your machine and your accessories, they should last you a lot longer. Clean your hose with warm/hot water every 7-10 days - don't use any type of detergent or cleaner, just warm/hot water and let dry (hang it over your shower head). Clean your mask and cushions in the same manner and time. Water chambers can be cleaned every 10-14 days, again warm/hot water and let them air dry. The only thing I agree on with this "industry standard" is the air filters. Change them out every 15 days. This prevents dirt and dust from getting into your machine - think of your car if you don't regularly maintain the air filter, your car runs rougher, loses gas mileage, etc. Same thing with your CPAP. I'm currently using the same CPAP I've had for 13 years and I've religiously changed my filter every 15 days. I change out my mask about once a year, tubing about every 6 months and water chamber about once a year. I purchase all of my supplies from, a Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business.
