Care Touch CPAP Tube Cleaning Brush Plus Handy Brush
For people sleeping or using a CPAP, BIPAP or any other PAP machines, it is important to constantly clean the machines and tubes to keep it sterile, germ and bacteria free.
A person that sleeps approximately 6-8 hours a night, breaths on average 5,000 breaths a night which is over 2 million breaths a year. Now add on to that someone that is breathing through a mask and tube, especially one that humidifies the air, that is an absolute breeding ground for bacteria, germs and infection to live and grow.
For this reason it is VERY IMPORTANT to clean the CPAP mask and tube on a constant basis.
These Care Touch CPAP Cleaning Brushes make it easy to do so.
The cleaning brush extends up to 7 feet so you can clean the entire length of the tube at once.
The handy brush is great for the CPAP mask, to clean the opening where the tube gets inserted, without the 7 foot coil at the end.
How to clean your CPAP Tubing
Use a mild detergent and warm water.
Rinse thoroughly with cool water
Keep the tube as straight as possible and gently work the brush in a back and forth motion, in short strokes, gradually working further inside the tube.
Avoid aggressive use when cleaning. The fan tipped brush will reduce stress to tubing walls. However, it is recommended the CPAP tube be kept straight as possible during cleanings to avoid unnecessary wear or damage.
When done cleaning, thoroughly rinse tube with a stream of cool water, Gently pat the bristles until dry to the touch and hang somewhere where there is air circulation. Carefully loosen and straighten tube brush, maintaining a hold on both ends. Once unwound, we suggest finding somewhere to hang the brush.
