This Viral/Bacterial filter is an optional accessory that is placed between the machine and tubing to nearly eliminate all air particles and offer an additional level of protection and purification for the CPAP user.
Inline Bacterial Viral Filters are a great option for sleep therapy users who are prone to sickness or allergies. They actively clean the air as it leaves your CPAP or BiPAP machine, working in conjunction with the machine's built-in filters, to provide exceptionally clean air throughout the night.
Inline bacteria filters work to prevent 99% of all bacteria and viruses from being filtered into your CPAP equipment and therefore, prevent these particles from reaching your lungs.
Replace every 4-6 nights, do not wash.
If using the filters with an APAP machine with automatic pressures which average out lower than 7 cm, please do not purchase these as they 'may' affect the airflow.
There are disposable filters and should not be washed and re-used.
These filters can be used safely with humidifiers, but if the filter gets accidentally wet it is important to allow the filter to dry before use.
Do not allow the filter to get too dirty before replacing with a new one, as this could affect the airflow.
These filters are latex-free, but may contain phthalates so children and those pregnant or breast feeding should seek medical advice before use.
