Does SoClean 2 Make Noise?
CPAP machines or Continuous Positive Air Pressure Machines are machines that are employed in the therapy of sleep apnea.
Patients would wear a face mask that is linked to a pump that provides a natural flow of air into the nasal passages during sleep to keep the airway correctly opened.
Many people suffer from sleep apnea these days but are often not diagnosed or just do nothing about it.
There is much less of those individuals who actually take action and utilize a CPAP machine.
But even if you take action, and take one kind of CPAP machine – you still might not get a good night’s sleep because of the noise that CPAP machines usually elicit.
One of the reasons could be that these machines can be very loud, and sometimes they don’t just bother you, but your partner or roommate also.
All of the whining and whistling noises coming from the air in a CPAP machine can be very unpleasant when you need to sleep at night.
Because these machines are meant to help you sleep better, but they are not a result of noise, here are a few tricks that you can employ to make them quieter.
CPAP Machine Noise Reduction Tips
1-Re-Positioning the CPAP Machine
Sometimes the noise coming from a SoClean CPAP machine can be lowered by repositioning it to somewhere else, far away from you.
It is always good to place it somewhere under your ear level because the noise will not be getting to your ear that easily like this.
However, this might not always be the perfect solution.
Of course, try to find another place other than carpets, since it is not advisable since the mat can muffle and block the air intake and proper airflow.
The other thing that you should pay attention to is that the surface that you place your CPAP machine on is clean since if it is not, the dirty air will be sucked into it and then to your lungs.
But sometimes, you just have to face the truth and know that CPAP masks make noise.
If you place it in dusty surroundings, you will be breathing in a lot of dust and perhaps even cause yourself some irritations and allergies.
It’s always good to have some CPAP Cleaning Mask Wipes on hand if that occurs.
A good thing that you can attempt to make a CPAP machine quieter is to place it on a clean towel. It will absorb the noise coming from the machine and make it silent.
The thing that you will have to be careful about when placing a towel beneath it, though, is not to block the airflow.
2-Purchase a Quieter CPAP Machine (H3)
As always, the last thing that you can try is purchasing a new CPAP machine.
If you have tried what I have previously suggested and are still not satisfied with the outcomes, you might want to get a new machine that works better and produces less noise.
I am sure that you are familiar with the fact that a lot of quiet machines are being manufactured these days, so there are soft CPAP machines.
And as we’ve mentioned earlier, there are quite a few various types of CPAP, so you will be able to find a quiet CPAP that will suit your requirements.
They are not that cheap, but they are sure worth it if you will be able to breathe easily and your partner gets to sleep without a problem that might be as a result of the noise coming from your machine.
