Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Machine Cleaning
Devices that claim to use ozone gas or UV light to clean CPAP machines do not have FDA clearance or approval.
If you use a CPAP machine at night to help you breathe during sleep, you know it can be difficult to keep up a regular cleaning schedule.
