Step 3: How do I clean and maintain my equipment?

Your CPAP equipment is more likely to be effective if it’s kept in good condition. Adopt a few good habits and you’ll find that it’s quick and easy to keep your CPAP equipment in good working order. Please refer to your user guide for specific guidance about maintaining your equipment.

Step 4: How do I make the most of CPAP therapy?

 

Maximizing comfort: Humidification
Heated humidification has been shown to relieve some of the side effects of therapy such as a dry nose or mouth.

 

Maximizing comfort: Ramp
The Ramp setting allows you to fall asleep comfortably by starting at a lower pressure and gently ramping up to your prescribed pressure.

How do I track my CPAP therapy progress?

Wouldn’t it be motivating if you could see that you’re making progress on your CPAP therapy treatment? The myAir app can motivate you to stick with therapy by giving you insight into what’s going well and helping you to fix what isn’t working.
