BiPAP Machine Cleaners

The three leading CPAP machine cleaners, VirtuClean, SoClean, and Lumin, can all sanitize most BiPAP Machines and equipment as well. Despite the variations in size, features, and materials, the design of the sanitization devices can still work regardless of those differences. Maintaining a disinfected set of BiPAP equipment is very important for your health and the longevity of your gear. With the ease and thoroughness of one of the BiPAP cleaners, you really cannot afford not to have one be a part of your daily routine.
Despite the model of your BiPAP, VirtuClean, SoClean, or Lumin can likely work to get your equipment clean. Here are some of the BiPap manufacturers and a few of their models. This list will have a comprehensive set of features found on some of those machines as well.
There are a couple of different styles of AirCurve BiPAPs. Here is some information on those models and some of their more prominent features and options.
AirCurve 10 S BiLevel
This BiPAP is a unit that offers the leading technology in the industry. The patient’s comfort was the main idea when designing this device. By using programs that help the device be more intuitive, AirCurve can provide ease of breathing for more restful sleep and more effective sleep therapy. This machine is a bilevel device made for providing a higher pressure for inhaling and a reduced pressure for exhalation.
  • This device has the following features:
    • Comfort breathing feature.
      • This feature affords the user a more natural simulated breathing pattern by using a waveform air pressure to cause a more natural breath.
    • Heated humidifier
      • This BiPAP device includes a heated humidifier that will help supply the wearer with moisture in the warmed air. This will increase the comfort of the sleep therapy as well as reduce some of the irritants that cause sleep therapy users not to follow the BiPAP therapy plans that their doctors or care teams have laid out for them.
    • Cycle Control.
      • When patients have delays or changes from inhalation to exhalation, this is called cycling. The AirCurve 10 S BiLevel is designed to help control cycling to help the patient get the best results from their BiPAP therapy. The program will detect cycling and then increase or decrease the time between breaths to help maintain a correct rhythm.
    • Screen with options menu.
      • This machine has a color screen. The options menus are created to be simple to use. From this display, you can change any of the current settings.
    • Autostarting and stopping.
      • The AirCurve 10 S can recognize when a patient first breaths into their mask, causing the machine to start up on its own. Similarly, the device’s programming can tell when the user has taken off their facemask and will discontinue supplying air.
    • Records
      • With this device, an SD card stores the night’s data. The machine records information about the current sleep period. You can review some overview data for as far back as 365 days and more detailed information about the last 30 times that you have used the BiPAP.

Sanitizers for Your BiPAP Machine
Regardless of which of these models of BiPAPs you use, it is critical to keep your machine and its equipment sanitized for your health and the effectiveness of your sleep therapy. Traditional cleaning methods can be messy and time-consuming, however with the use of a BiPAP sanitizing device you can experience a simple to perform, and convenient for any lifestyle, process that allows you to clean your BiPAP equipment every day.
Imagine the peace of mind you would be provided knowing that your equipment such as the headgear that keeps your mask on, the facemask, the tubing, and even the tub of your humidifier, is all being kept sterile to help it work as it is designed to with no obstructions. Now imagine those same steps that are keeping your gear in optimal condition also keeping you safe. This is what can happen in just a few simple steps with a device like the VirtuClean, SoClean, or the Lumin.
By utilizing the BiPAP cleaners, there is assurance that over 99% of all unwanted particles such as bacteria, mold, fungus, or viruses are eliminated from your equipment. You can get more restful sleep knowing that your gear is working as effectively as it can while you are breathing the cleanest air possible.

“Traditional cleaning methods can be messy and time-consuming, however with the use of a BiPAP sanitizing device, you can experience a simple to perform and convenient for any lifestyle, process that allows you to clean your BiPAP equipment every day.”

The VirtuCLEAN and the SoClean
These two CPAP and BiPAP cleaners are both powered by the disinfecting powers of ozone. Ozone is regular oxygen that we would breathe with an added molecule. This activated oxygen then becomes hostile at high enough concentrations. Both the VirtuCLEAN and the SoClean have chambers where you place your mask and headgear while attaching the hose portion of your CPAP equipment to the device itself. Once you press the on button, the cleaning device pumps ozone into the sanitization chamber until it reaches the optimal level of activated oxygen. Once the cleaning cycle is completed, your CPAP or BiPAP equipment is ready for immediate use.
These units are dissimilar in a few ways. The VirtuCLEAN is much smaller and can be run on battery operation while the SoClean has a much larger footprint and needs to be plugged into an outlet to work. That being said, the VirtuCLEAN must be attached to the CPAP equipment every day and takes a two-part cleaning cycle to clean your tubing, mask, and humidifier completely. The SoClean, on the other hand, is attached to your CPAP the first time you use it, and it does not have to be disconnected or reconnected each day. It is also worthy to note that the SoClean cleans all of your equipment in one cleaning cycle, and unlike other cleaners, it does not require the removal of the water from your humidifying chamber.
Carefully consider each machine’s benefits and disadvantages before choosing which might be a better fit for your lifestyle. Also ready about the Lumin bellow.
The Lumin
Unlike the other two leading CPAP and BiPAP cleaners, the Lumin does not use ozone for sanitization. Instead, the Lumin utilizes the germicidal properties of ultraviolet light. Dissimilar to the SoClean and VirtuCLEAN, the Lumin does not connect directly to your CPAP equipment; instead, you disassemble your mask and humidifier and place those items into the light chamber. This CPAP or BiPAP cleaner is much quicker than the other cleaners taking only 5 minutes to disinfect your gear completely. It is also important to note that you can sanitize other household items with this cleaner. Some items include hearing aids, eyeglasses, toothbrushes, hair combs, dental retainers, and so much more. There is one downside to the Lumin. Unfortunately, the light chamber is not designed in a way that it can adequately penetrate the different convex points in your tubing or hoses. That being said, the Lumin does have the available accessory called the Lumin Bullet that was designed especially for those hard to reach places of a CPAP or BiPAP hose. Here at best CPAP Cleaner we offer a combination package which features both the Lumin and Lumin Bullet for a comprehensive clean.
