Sleep 8 vs SoClean 2 CPAP Cleaner Comparison
Maintaining your CPAP equipment clean and sanitized at all times is of primordial importance. Keep in mind that you are using your mask to breathe air into your lungs, and if your mask/tubing is not properly sanitized you might ingest viruses, bacteria, and mold with every breath you take. Tubing systems are also humid environments and especially if you use a humidifier you are at higher risk of breathing in undesired pathogens if your equipment is not sanitized.
You can use a mild detergent and lukewarm water to thoroughly cleanse your CPAP equipment at regular intervals, but you can opt for a much easier solution. There are many CPAP cleaning and sanitation machines available that will make your life so much easier. Typically, you only need to disassemble your CPAP parts- tubing, mask, headgear, etc.- and insert these into the cleaner unit. Then, press a button and wait for the sanitation process to start. When done, you just need to take out the equipment, assemble it and enjoy a clean and sanitized oxygen therapy each time. Two such highly popular cleaners include the Sleep 8 and the SoClean 2. Let’s check out the main properties and benefits of each cleaning unit.
