With our local patients we recommend a review on your ResMed AirSense 10 AutoSet CPAP device every 6 to 12 months. Within these reviews we will ensure your therapy is working correctly – by downloading your data and do an inspection of your machine, tubing and mask to ensure it is in fine working order.
We believe your filter should be changed every 3-6 months depending upon your environment. We send reminders to our patients every 3 months to change their filter and also encourage them to take the filter out and give it a flick every 2 weeks to ensure there is minimal dust build up. We sell filters in 4 packs which will last you the year. You can get these in standard form or as a hypoallergenic filter.
We recommend wiping out the humidifier tub on a daily basis and giving it a thorough clean once a fortnight. When cleaning the tub we recommend using white vinegar on the stainless steel component and warm soapy water on the rest. The tubs are also dishwasher compatible, so feel free to put through in a cycle.
The tubing should also be cleaned on a regular basis. The warm moist air that passes through is an environment bacteria love. To clean the tube, we recommend using warm soapy water. Rinse with fresh water and then air dry. With the ResMed AirSense 10 heated tubing, it is ok for the electrical component of his to get wet. There are tube brushes available should you wish to get inside your tube and give it a good scrub.
Keeping your equipment well maintained will increase the life of your equipment. It will also improve the end user experience. The cleanliness will help your mask to seal and also minimise the risk of picking up any bad germs that may house themselves in the equipment.
With the price of the ResMed AirSense AutoSet as it is, it is a good idea to keep it well maintained and improve its longevity. If you need any more information, consult the ResMed AirSense 10 manual on the product page.
