anybody that tells you these cleaning machines actually do anything is an idiot. the whole cpap cleaner industry is a scam.

personally, the only cleaning I ever do is handwash the frame and I wipe down the cushion. I started cpap 2 years ago and I've never gotten sick doing this.
Exactly this.

if it was sold directly by say a CPAP manufacturer, I would trust it.. E.g. Phillips...
But some off label, drop shipping guy on Amazon? No thanks!

If there was a better soap/water alternative to cpap cleaning, don't you think Phillips/ResMed would offer one. Ozone voids cpap warranties.

Hi guys. this may be slightly off topic. but how often do you replace the heated hose and how often do you replace the mask? I'm with pacific blue cross, but found out they cover 0 percent of cpap, so i had to buy my own without getting money back from the insurance

I'd look into that before purchasing, I know it's discussed online, maybe some changes have been made.

Edit: Found it, it's ozone cleaners that's up for debate. Not sure of this machine uses that or not.
There's also some talk of the cleaning system actuary damaging the CPAP machine. Like certain parts become warped over time and tubes and stuff need to be replaced more frequently.

In one of the pictures, the guy has it connected to the cleaning machine and the mask on while sleeping. Is that how it's suppose to work?

I can't speak for the heated hose as I have never used one in 15+ years using a CPAP. Actually, I wish there was a way to cool the air as I find it easier to breathe. As for the masks, I would suggest that you only buy the silicone cushion part of the mask and only change the whole headgear when absolutely necessary. I have bought some ResMed Activa LT cushions for as low as $16 online. I only change them once the silicone will no longer provide a good seal. Do clean them periodically though.

If you have no insurance, do not buy locally. Buy online. My preferred online store is CanadaCPAPsupply but I'm sure there are many other good ones.

This might be the reason my CPAP provider has me come in for a check up and clean every 6 months.

Is your coverage through work? I'm with PBC and it covered 80% Ended up only paying $160 for machine, heated hose and a couple masks. Yearly mask and hose 80% covered.

systems are useless, even the rep that sold me the machine told me not to buy one.

Just realized I missed out on this... Too bad as I would have purchased my usual CPAP supplies for the 20x points.

my insurance allows twice a year at 75%: tube, water reservoir, mask . Works out well for me seeing at the 6 months i find i am usually starting to over tighten to get a good seal . i think that the heated hose and resevoir would easily last a year.

I'm with vancity bank under the self employed PBC. it covers medicine and dental, but was so surprised when it offered 0 coverage for CPAP. i was quoted 1800 for CPAP if insurance pays.
1400 if i go pay myself. I ended up finding a used machine for 400 bucks. I bought a new heated hose for 40 on craiglist. I felt bad for the shop that did the testing and paid 200 for the resmed mask. So in total, I paid 640 for everything. The machine i use is resmed airsense 10. Even if insurance pays, i would have to pay 20 percent, which is $360 plus higher premiums. So I paid a bit more than i like.

I bought it last year, used it for one day and could not stand the smell that night.

It burned my nose and felt terrible the next day. Looked it up online and realized that soap and water is the best way to clean. Returned it quickly.

Surely that's a question for your insurance company?
