Replacing CPAP supplies and equipment

It’s important to take regular care of your CPAP equipment – especially your mask, which can be affected by dirt, oil and residue from your skin.

Keep scrolling to learn about how and when to order new CPAP supplies to replace various parts in your equipment.


When should you order new CPAP supplies?

A part’s lifespan depends on your usage frequency, cleaning routine and whether the part touches your face.

Check your parts regularly for signs of wear and tear. When your CPAP equipment is working at its best, you’ll be able to tell the difference.

And remember, you can always check with your CPAP equipment provider whether you require a replacement.
