Sleep apnea affects upwards of 18 million Americans. While it’s particularly common among middle-aged men, it does affect women as well. This disorder causes people to stop breathing multiple times during sleep and has been linked to serious health issues. Sleep apnea can be treated with the use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, in addition to other methods of treatment.
CPAP machines work by increasing air pressure in the throat so that the airway doesn’t collapse, allowing sleep apnea sufferers to breathe more easily at night. However, in order for CPAP therapy to be fully effective, users should clean their CPAP equipment on a daily basis; even the slightest bit of moisture can lead to serious bacteria build-up. Daily cleaning prevents the buildup of germs, which can ultimately lead to respiratory infections.
However, manually cleaning CPAP equipment can be very time consuming, as it requires disassembling the different parts and washing them by hand. And soap and water only go so far. Fortunately, there’s a much more efficient solution: The SoClean® 2 CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizer. SoClean will keep your CPAP device fresh and bacteria-free so you can breathe easy at night, and wake up refreshed every morning. The fully automated SoClean unit kills 99.9% of all CPAP bacteria. Just drop your mask in and let it do all the work.
Don’t let sleep apnea—or CPAP cleaning—get in the way of doing all the things you love. After all, those minutes can really add up. Just how much time does the SoClean® 2 save? We wanted to get to the bottom of this, so we created this helpful infographic, which shows you how much time you can save by using the SoClean® 2—and what you could be doing with all that extra time.
