Nasty Flu Means a Nasty CPAP Mask

Viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules. Unlike bacteria, they multiply only within one host cell. They transform protein of the host cell into proteins of their own. Activated oxygen or ozone is a natural molecule that is formed when a third atom of oxygen is introduced into the common two-atom molecule that makes up the air we breathe. This molecule becomes “super-charged” and has the ability to oxidize, or destroy many other molecules found in nature. Ozone destroys the flu virus and other viruses by diffusing through the protein coat resulting in killing of the virus. Sanitize CPAP equipment to kill any bacteria or virus that might be living in or on the equipment and mask.

During one of the worst flu seasons seen in many years, Sanitizing can play an extremely important role in keeping you healthy. The flu virus can be transmitted by touching contaminated surfaces. The next step in the transmission involves touching ones face or any object, like the CPAP mask that makes contact with the face. Sanatizing can break the chain of transmission by killing any virus that might be present on CPAP equipment before it contacts our face. Besides the flu virus, other pathogens can contaminate CPAP equipment, causing sinus infections and related respiratory problems.
