The ICON line of CPAP machines come with a disposable filter. The ICON CPAP filter is made from a fibrous material that traps large particulate matter, such as: pollen, dust and pet dander. This type of CPAP filter will not filter out microbial particles (i.e. viral and bacterial particles). The primary purpose of this CPAP filter is to prevent damage to the CPAP machine motor. It is not intended as a patient filter.
The use of this filter filter is a critical component in keeping a CPAP unit running longer and more efficiently. A CPAP filter captures a wide assortment of dust, pollen and contaminated air particles.
These particles, if not captured by effective CPAP filters, will accumulate inside the machine and eventually work there way to the airway of the user. It is of the utmost importance that the air pumped by these machines is clean, providing the user with effective treatment of sleep apnea.
