from wikipedia:

Blood circulation: Red = oxygenated (arteries), Blue = deoxygenated (veins)

Oxygen saturation is the fraction of oxygen-saturated hemoglobin relative to total hemoglobin (unsaturated + saturated) in the blood. The human body requires and regulates a very precise and specific balance of oxygen in the blood. Normal blood oxygen levels in humans are considered 95–100 percent. If the level is below 90 percent, it is considered low resulting in hypoxemia.[1]Blood oxygen levels below 80 percent may compromise organ function, such as the brain and heart, and should be promptly addressed. Continued low oxygen levels may lead to respiratory or cardiac arrest. Oxygen therapy may be used to assist in raising blood oxygen levels. Oxygenation occurs when oxygen molecules (O2) enter the tissues of the body. For example, blood is oxygenated in the lungs, where oxygen molecules travel from the air and into the blood. Oxygenation is commonly used to refer to medical oxygen saturation.

CPAP cleaning has never been a favorite chore for those to whom I have provided machines over the years, however it is clearly the second most important part of using CPAP therapy for OSA Sleep Apnea. The most important factor for CPAP sleep therapy is compliance, I mean, you have to actually put the mask on and use your CPAP every night in order for it to improve your apnea. So, compliance with CPAP is an entirely separate blog post for future reference, and I have a lot of great ideas in that area which have been proven to work well.

Cleaning your CPAP, hose, mask, and water reservoir is crucial to healthy long term use of CPAP. First, I will explain why, and later down this post, I’ll share with you how to get those dirty bugs out of your system.

CPAP bacteria and mold LOVE this environment which is dark, wet, and warm.

WHY?????

Why should I clean my CPAP? : Most users of CPAP are instructed by their provider to keep the equipment clean at the time of the original set up, however these instructions have been known to be ignored by the CPAP users more than a few times. Mold, bacteria, and other germs, and bugs love three things more than anything else. These are 1 warmth, 2 moisture, and 3 darkness. This is exactly the environment offered by your CPAP machine. Not cleaning your CPAP is basically sending an invitation to germs:

“Hello germs, we are having a party in the CPAP, and all are invited!”

Understanding that this environment is adored by the germs goes a long way toward cleaning inspiration. The more mold, bacteria, and other germs are present, the greater opportunity they have to infect your airway. This may manifest itself as a simple cold, sinus infection, or possibly even a full-blown respiratory tract infection.

HOW????

Different CPAP providers may share a slightly different variation of the CPAP cleaning process. If you are told something different I recommend that you follow their advice.

Start by keeping it cleaner by using “distilled” water ONLY. No minerals means no evaporation film deposit which bacteria love as well.

Daily clean the CPAP mask or other interface with soapy water, rinse thoroughly with water and air dry. (Dawn dish detergent is great as it rinses easily)

Once to twice per week, wash the water CPAP water reservoir, hose, and mask with soapy water, rinse thoroughly, and air dry.

Occasionally, if you suspect it is needed, mix a big bowl with 1 part white vinegar, and 3 parts water solution. Place the CPAP mask, hose and water reservoir into the solution for approximately 30 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with water and air dry.

Step-By-Step Tutorial [Resmed Airsense 10 Auto CPAP]

Step-By-Step Tutorial [Resmed Airsense 10 Auto CPAP]

I can genuinely say that after decades of setting up CPAP machines for sleep apnea customers, I have finally found my favorite. The Resmed Airsense 10 Auto CPAP is a brilliant work of art. Not only does it look beautiful, it performs! Dependability and quiet operation are it’s hallmarks.

I wanted to go beyond pics, and show you some basic detail about the machine in this quick step-by-step tutorial on the Airsense 10 Auto CPAP. 

I didn’t even mention some of the coolest features in the video. This unit will communicate with you!! It sends a signal to the nearest cell phone tower (encrypted of course) and allows you, your physician, and your supplier (if you so desire) to access data directly from the machine. The report that is generated is truly remarkable. The report can help you determine how well the therapy is working. We can see if your mask is leaking, at what level your pressure is running, and even if you are still experiencing apnea or hypopnea! This information is crucial to the long term effectiveness and compliance of CPAP therapy for sleep apnea.
