CPAP Transitions: Summer to Fall

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

How do you prepare for a new season when using CPAP?

If you’ve had your CPAP for more than a few months, you already know how frustrating it can be to have the waether change affect your CPAP experience. If this is your first seasonal shift with CPAP, you’re in luck for finding this before it happens! When the temperature and humidity begin to change, your CPAP settings and equipment will need adjustments. We’re here to guide you through the big changes as we shift from warm summer nights to some cooler fall evenings.

Here’s 4 tips for making your CPAP seasonal transition easier:

1. Replace your supplies that need seasonal updates.

When your supplies are old, the therapy will become less and less effective. Because this happens slowly over time, most folks end up not noticing it. Instead, they will tighten their mask a little more, thinking they just need the seal a little closer.

Eventually this leads to over-tightening that can cause pain, marks, and the annoying “hot mask” feeling. The less comfortable your CPAP supplies are, the harder it is to stay compliant and get your CPAP benefits. You can avoid this by replacing your supplies with fresh ones every season, which lines up with most insurance-backed schedule.

Your CPAP supplies could be yours for $0! Allow us to check with your insurance provider for you to find out what is covered (for free!). Click below to get started:

2. Have a machine that automatically adjusts to the new temperature and humidity.

Your pressure needs vary through the night, but so do your comfort needs. As the environment in your room changes with air, heat or the weather each night, you’ll need a CPAP machine that adjusts to your needs. New CPAP machines adjust breath-by-breath to give the most effective settings. We prefer ResMed’s AirSense 10 AutoSet, which offers:

  • Humidification: 7 levels of humidity and an optional heated tube ensures you don’t dry out
  • EPR: Expiratory Pressure Relief reduces pressure upon exhale, avoiding high pressure mask leaks

3. Avoid seasonal allergens and illnesses by keeping your supplies clean.

Bacteria and allergens can build up on your mask every night. Weak seals and CPAP illnesses are big barriers to compliance, and resulting sinus pressure can lead to headaches. That’s why keeping your mask and hose clean can be the difference between intolerable and effective CPAP therapy. The Sleep8 CPAP cleaner will keep your supplies sanitary and fresh with:
