Machines offer us unlimited amounts of convenience, and in return, need upkeep and maintenance. Just like your furnace needs air filters, your CPAP needs parts on a routine basis—something we call resupply. It ensures the longevity of your machine, but more importantly, current supplies are proven to help with the success of your sleep apnea treatment.
When you have the right device with supplies that are clean and working well, you are more likely to keep using your CPAP or BiPAP. Long term usage and all the benefits of sleep therapy are the cornerstones of Frontier’s Resupply program. We make sure that resupply is convenient, private and user-friendly for our sleep therapy patients. We work alongside you to get the products you need, with or without insurance. Call our Sleep Coaches Monday to Friday, 8 am to 5 pm at 844.853.9012 to get signed up today!
Replacing your CPAP/BiPAP supplies on a regular basis is essential for your sleep therapy equipment. Routinely changing your CPAP/BiPAP supplies is important to the success of your treatment and longevity of your machine. It is important to keep your equipment clean in order to prevent bacterial growth and to decrease the chance of infections. Frontier Home Medical’s reorder program—called Resupply—will contact you to inform you of which supplies you are eligible for through your insurance at that time. Whether you are new to sleep therapy or have been using a CPAP for years, we help make it easier to stay on top of your good sleep hygiene!
If a CPAP/BiPAP mask has ever been worn, it now contains bacteria—as well as other germs. Cleaning your sleep therapy supplies each day is important; but what we now know is that replacing your supplies is equally critical. According to a 2012 study by Horowitz, Horowitz and Chun called “CPAP Masks are Sources of Microbial Contamination”, for masks over 6 months old, there may be no way to kill 100% of the bacteria.
What is the solution? Prevent bacterial growth and infections by regularly cleaning and replacing your sleep therapy equipment. Frontier’s Resupply Program is here to support you!
CPAP supplies are disposable medical equipment. As such, the flexible silicone masks can lose its seal and start to leak air, the machine’s filter can become blocked and humidifier chambers can develop leaks. These parts aren’t failing; they become warn out over time and must be routinely replaced. New supplies mean better sleep therapy.
