**Using this filter is a temporary solution for products under Philips' CPAP Recall for those who are waiting for a repair without any other backup machines. It does not block the off-gassed chemicals.


 

CPAP Bacteria Filter

The CPAP Bacteria Filter significantly reduces the bacteria and viral content in your CPAP airflow without compromising the flow of air from your CPAP device. When installed the filter prevents bacteria and viruses from infiltrating into your CPAP tube, CPAP Mask, and ultimately your airway. The filter fits all standard CPAP tubing.


Key Features

  • Highly Efficient Filter
  • Compatible with Exhalation Pressure Relief Features
  • Stops Viruses and Bacteria

Reviewers Tip:

It is highly recommended you do not use the bacteria filter for more than 3 days with a humidifier


FAQ

How often should I replace the bacteria filter?

The answer varies depending on usage and the environment you conduct your sleep apnea therapy in. It is recommended you check your filter every week, and if you see any signs of discoloration or moisture, you should change the filter.

This filter is compatible with all CPAP tubing.

Folks, don't ask this company to send you free filters because the PHILIPS company recalled their C-Pap machine. This respshop is not a Philips company. They only offer filters to those who's doctor recommended them as a temporary fix. Respshop is separate from Philips. They can help you by selling filters and explain to you how to install them. They tell you right off the start that these filters do not filter out the dangerous gases eminating from the foam insulation. Only pieces of foam get caught so you don't continue inhaling them through the hose. The gases were there before you even put the mask on. They can make you very sick including some reports of cancer believed might be a factor.
So please do not blame respshop for Philips recall. Mine was recalled but I was able to convince Medicare that even though I only had it for 1 year, I was told to stop using it so that paved the way for me to seem it unusable and I want you to cover the price of a new one.
They agreed that it was an inferior product and gave me the ok to buy a C-Pap machine. Any brand. So I'm waiting for a resmed Airsense C-Pap machine. Excellent reviews.

Subject: not worth it
The bacteria filter I bought is $7 and cast me $13 in shipping! That is unacceptable and I will not be using this company in the future. Also the filter degraded my CPAP pressure slightly, so I stopped using it. This was supposed to be a stop-gap while the CPAP recall process plays out, but Respshop said I need to replace this filter every three days! Are you kidding me? At that price? Good business move Respshop! Bad move for me!

Hi John, on our webpage for the product, it does say that this is just to protect from particulates, but will not protect from gas unfortunately. This should only be ordered if recommended by your doctor. The filter can only last 3 days if you use it with the humidifier as the moisture will block the pressure. It is also noted that users may notice a differential in pressures depending on current settings. I do apologize for the inconvenience. If you decide to order more, please use code FILTER to save on shipping for the filter.

Subject: CPAP RECALL
SO this Dream station CPAP machine is not safe to use but i am told that i must purchase filters and a lot of them, 2 - 3 filters per week when using humidity
If this faulty equipment is needing a filter shouldn't they be supplied by the manufacturer at no cost to the customer ?
the worst is i just learned about this recall on 7/14/2021
i would think my oxygen supply company (Lincare) would of /could of told me immediately but they NEVER do anything of the sort.
so when can i expect a temporary fix/ permanent fix for this deadly device

Subject: CPAP Recall
Phillips should be sending these filters at no cost to everyone who has one of their CPAP machines recalled. Patients have already been exposed to harmful chemicals due to Phillips' faulty equipment - and now you want them to buy your filters to protect them from your mistake. Why should they now have to pay for a filter?! Phillips is putting so many people's health at risk. Shame on you! I want free filters delivered to my home until Phillips fixes this mess!

Subject: Sleep APNEA DOT Medical requirements
I am a truck driver, the trucking industry requires all truck drivers who have sleep apnea to use this machines and stay 80% compliant. The (DOT) Dept of Transportation doctor down graded my perfect 2 year medical license to 3 months until I get up to compliance using the machine. I just found out about the recall by ordering supplies, no one was going to tell me this device may cause cancer. Now I may loose my career because I will not be able to meet the DOT compliance they require. A lot of drivers will loose their driving careers if the DOT does not give them a medical extension until this mess is fixed.

So I have to purchase a filter to prevent my CPAC Machine from killing me. Isn’t that something that Phillips should be sending out to all machine owners. I have been talking with several machine owners and we think it’s time to file a class action suit against the company. You were told by your doctor to use it every single day Phillips is taking forever to make this problem go away. Just saying

Hello, please remember that we are not the Manufacturer. Philips Respironics is the manufacturer. Please direct your concerns regarding the recall to them directly at 1-877-907-7508.

Subject: Recall CPAP
I think a class action suit should be entered. I would not have known about any of this if I didn’t call ResMed to order supplies and hear their announcement regarding the “Recall�. Had to Google it to get information and now I have to purchase a stop gap temporary fix. Philips needs to step up and supply all the effected users of their inferior product with everything needed. Why wasn’t a notification sent out?

Please note we are RESPSHOP.COM and not Philips. We are here and ready to help if we can.

Subject: Adapter
First of all, I can believe I was charged to order an adapter for a CPAP machine that is being recalled due to expelling cancerous toxins. The recommended adapter not fit the CPAP machine. What a rip off

Very pissed off. Have developed breathing problems. Why do we have to buy these filters if its a recall. I'm now seeking the assistance of a attorney. Not happy

Yes we understand that as well. Please note the recall is with Philips and not with Respshop. Give us a call as we can offer some short term fixes during this difficult time. You may want to consider renting for a while or purchasing a travel device as your back up.

Subject: Bacterial filters
Due to the "recall" I decided to use a inline bacterial filter for my protection. The order was quickly shipped and received. The filter does not seem to interfere with the flow of air and is simple to install in my unit. I used a "Sharpie" to write the day the filter was inserted and will replace it every three months or sooner if the surface shows debris or the airflow is affected.Will order again!

Question
Is the filter ok to use on a CPAP device without humidifier?
Answer
Yes, it is in fact better for its longevity to not use a humidifier.
Question
Is the filter ok to use on a CPAP with humidifier?
Answer
Yes you may use this filter with a humidifier. You will need to change it more often if it gets wet for it will create a resistance in your airflow. I suggest changing every other day or 3 days at most. Thank you
Question
How long can you use the filters on the machine before changing it?
Answer
The filter is generally good for about 1-2 weeks. You can look inside of the filter, and if it looks a dark grey or black after 1-2 weeks it is time to change it. This is with your Humidifier turned OFF. If the humidifier is being used with the filter, it will only last about 3 days.
Question
You mean I have to pay for your mistake
Answer
Hi Nancy, we are not the manufacturer of the recalled devices. If you would like to speak to Philips Respironics regarding the recall, please call their official recall line at 1-877-907-7508.
Question
Shouldn't phillips provide free filters to a affected customers?
Answer
Hello,
We are not able to speak for Philips as we are not Philips. Please contact Philips at 877-907-7508. Thank you.
Question
Which one do I purchase for my machine and where does it go on machine
Diana Pezzulich
Answer
Hello you may purchase the Sunset Healthcare CPAP bacterial filter from Respshop link below. It will go between the cpap and the tubing. However you may not use the humidifier during this time and if you have a heated hose you will need to place it between the mask and tubing.
https://www.respshop.com/cpap-supplies/filters/sunset-healthcare-cpap-bacteria-filter-p-804.html
Question
Which replacement filter do I order?
Answer
This is a Bacterial Inline Filter that can be used in between the machine and standard tubing, or between the tubing and the mask. It can be used to prevent particles from entering your airway, if there is breakdown inside the machine. This is a standard filter and will be any standard tubing sizes.
Question
I have read several places online that this applies to the Dream machine but your site says it doesn't apply and that this issue does not apply. Whats is correct? Do we need these filters or not?
Answer
Hello, I am asking you to contact our office and we would be happy to assist you. Our number is 1-866-936-3754
Question
I have a Dream Station 2. The end of the hose that plugs into the unit had 3 prongs that go into the 3 holes on the unit.
Will this adapter work due to it not having the 3 prongs to lock into the unit.
Answer
The Dreamstation 2 is not affected by the recall, so you don't need to use this filter with your device. The foam in the Dreamstation 2 is not the same as the affected sound abatement foam for the recall. Thank you.
Question
I can't figure out how to put this on my machine. I saw the reply to put it on between the machine and the tubing, but how?
Answer
Your mask may have a quick connect which is a piece that fits in the tubing, that makes it easier for you to remove and apply your mask to the tubing. This would be why the filter is not fitting. You would need to remove that piece from the tube and attach it back to the mask. The filter would then fit between the filter and the tube. Please give us a call if you would like further guidance. Thank you.
