The benefits of replacing them are unmistakable.
It’s important to replace your mask and accessory supplies on a regular basis to ensure you are receiving the most comfortable, effective and hygienic therapy possible. The life of your mask is impacted by use, oils from your skin and cleaning. But even with regular care and maintenance, your mask and accessories can become worn out over time. Your headgear, cushion or pillows may stretch out or deteriorate, your tubing and humidifier water chamber may develop tears or cracks, and your air filter may become old and worn. As a result, your therapy system will not be performing at its best.
The easiest way to ensure you are receiving optimal therapy is to replace your equipment on a regular basis. Many insurance companies will cover the cost of replacing your mask, headgear, cushion, tubing, water chamber and air filters. Contact your insurance provider to find out what replacement options are available to you.
