Tips for Success

Ten tips to help you succeed in using CPAP therapy:

  1. Wash your CPAP mask daily (warm soapy water or Citrus II mask cleaner and wipes).
  2. Check your filter every other week — clean or replace if dirty.
  3. Do not over tighten your mask; it may cause leaks.
  4. If you are tightening your mask because of leaks or comfort, your seal may be broken or needs to be replaced.
  5. Replace your mask and accessories every 6 months.
  6. Follow up with your physician as instructed.
  7. Keep in contact with your CPAP provider to ensure your success.
  8. Use distilled water for your water chamber.
  9. If you have any dryness in your nose or throat, try increasing the humidity.
  10. Use your CPAP all night, every night … and while napping

These are just some general tips. For specific issues and professional assistance please make an appointment and speak to one of our registered therapists at (587) 317-4110
