Product Details

CPAP and BiPAP Bacterial Filter by Sunset Healthcare

This Bacterial Filter from Sunset Healthcare significantly reduces the bacteria and viral content in your CPAP or BiPAP airflow. It is compatible with CPAP and BiPAP machines of all brands and connects to all standard 22mm OD CPAP tubing. It can be used with or without a heated humidifier. 

This filter is not washable and should be replaced weekly or when dirty. If this bacterial filter is connected to a machine with a heated humidifier, it will require more frequent replacement, typically every three days. This is because the filter becomes saturated with moisture from the humidifier.

Usage Instructions

Connect one end of the bacterial filter to your machine and the other end to your hose.  If you are using a heated tubing, place the bacterial filter between your CPAP mask and heated 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.

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

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

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.

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: Sunset Healthcare CPAP Bacterial Filter
I came across the CPAP Bacterial Filter on the Respshop website, and it was during the COVID-19 lockdowns. It was also a time of CPAP recalls for my CPAP for retrofitting, and I am now a regular user of this bacterial filter, and will no longer do without it. The cost is minimal compared to keeping the air I breather at night clean. It is so important to have valuable products like this to maintain your health and proper sleep patterns.

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
I have a Philips Dreamstation that is part of the recall. Can this filter be washed and reused or is it restricted to one-time usage (3-7 days depending on humidifier)?

Answer
These can't be washed, they are meant to be disposable single-use items.

Question
I have a so clean for my Philips will the filter still work and how often will I have to change it. Also should I use the cleaner with the filter?

Answer
Philips is recommending that patients halt use of ozone-related cleaning products. Dish soap and water is what is recommended, and vinegar/water solution as needed. The filter is recommended to be used with the Humidifier off as well, as the filter will last longer this way. If used with the humidifier you may only get about 3 days of use on it. We are however sold out at the moment, so please check back weekly for updates.

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
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.
