Today, we have an important topic to discuss. It is related to the COVID19 virus and CPAP machines. Basically, there is an important question which needs to be answered. Is it possible to kill the COVID19 virus when cleaning the machine with CPAP Ozone Disinfector? In the content below, we will give you all the main,important but also less known facts about the matter.
Ozone Cleaner can kill 99% of Bacteria and Viruses
Let’s start with the basics and the most important facts.Ozone cleaners use ozone to kill the bacteria and the viruses from the surfaces or air inside the hose and mask of a CPAP machine. They are safe to use and they are the most effective method users can use at the moment.
There have been several studies and research that suggests ozone cleaners are effective in killing or better said eliminating COVID 19 virus. In addition, these cleaners such as Freyat Cleaner are effective in killing all viruses which are similar to Corona virus!
This is possible simply due to the nature of the ozone. It can eliminate all the germs, bacteria, and viruses. They are unable to protect the core inside the membrane from the ozone and as such, they cannot last more than a couple of minutes. If you want to be precise, the COVID19 virus cannot with stand ozone for longer than 30 seconds. Some of you will already know that for success cleaning of the CPAP machine using systems such as Freyat Cleaner you need 20 minutes.
The bottom line is that yes, ozone cleaners are effective in killing COVID19 virus and they should be used daily specifically for this purpose. We must add that some parts of the CPAP machine should be cleaned daily (hose and a mask) while others should be cleaned at least 2-3 times per week. Ozone cleaners are so popular and so effective that they can promote better sleep, better CPAP machine hygiene and they can promote the therapy in general.
Important connections between CPAP therapy and COVID19
There are a lot of additional questions that deserve to beans were right here. One of them is a myth in which the CPAP machine can protect you from the COVID19 virus. This is a simple myth and there are no alot of actual links between the two. First of all, a CPAP machine is designed for sleep apnea and it doesn’t have a direct link to the virus in question.Theoretically, it can decrease the odds of catching the virus but they are irrelevant.
Another myth is that the CPAP machine can be used as a ventilator (a device that is used to treat COVID19 virus patients with severe symptoms). Although the two work in a similar way, a ventilator is a more complex machine made for more specific problems.
There has been some research suggesting that CPAP machines can be used for minor COVID19 symptoms, but further research is still needed.
Keep in mind that you are not at a higher risk of catching the virus if you use the CPAP machine. The two are not linked closely and there are no direct links that suggest that patients at a risk. Don’t forget that there is a second part of the story. If you have COVID19 you still have to use CPAP therapy. The virus won’t eliminate your sleep apnea and you will have to continue using it.If you notice some symptoms of COVID19, make sure to contact your healthcare provider and make sure to follow his directions closely.
Last but not least, if you cannot find distilled water during the pandemic, you can use tap water. Distilled water contains no minerals and this is important due to the fact it decreases the buildup of the mineral deposits on the CPAP machine and the humidifier. If you cannot find the distilled water, use ordinary tap water. Just make sure to clean the humidifier more often and spend more time using it to clean all the minerals and other deposits.
The Final Word
We hope that you have learned a few things. First of all, CPAP Ozone Disinfector is an effective and highly recommended method to kill the COVID19 virus from your CPAP machine and make sure the risk is decreased. You should continue using the therapy, even if you suffer from the COVID19 virus and you should contact your healthcare provider if your condition changes.
