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.

Q. 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?
A. Hello, I am asking you to contact our office and we would be happy to assist you. Our number is 1-866-936-3754
Q. 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.
A. 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.
Q. 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?
A. 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.
Q. Is the cost listed for an individual filter, or do they come in packs?
A. Hi, this is for 1 filter.
Q. I have a Remstar SE Auto, Do these filters attach to the outlet on the CPAP machine or between hose and the mask?
The filter seems too stiff to attach directly to the outlet on the Remstar machine.
Thanks.
A. The filter works both ways, but I would suggest attaching it between your mask and hose, that way if you're still using humidity and a heated tube, it may last longer then having it attached directly to the device.
Q. I ordered some bacteria filters because of the recall. Do they attach to the base of the hose? How often should they be changed if I don’t use a humidifier? Thanks
A. Hi, they should be placed between your cpap machine and tubing. Change them every week unless you use the humidifier then every 3 days max. Thank you
Q. I also have a Dreamstation which uses the humidifier with the heated hose.

Other YouTube videos claim this will not support the heating hose because of how the end is.

Is this even a valid statement? From other responses provided to folks ob here with the same Dreamstation humidifier, it sounds as everything will be fine.

Can you please confirm?
Thank You!
A. Hi, yes it will not work there, but you may put it between your mask and hose. Thank you
Q. I have a Dreamstation, by Philips. Because of the recall i am considering using your filter. I also use a hot humidifier and hose and all. Which filter is the best for me, please? Could you recommend one? There are some differences in numbers and i am not sure which one to buy. thank you.
A. Hello,
This filter will block the debris from the foam should be replaced every week. However, since you are using a humidifier, the filter will need to be replaced more often (every 2-3 days ideally). It doesn't work as well when wet. They come as a pack of 5 filters. The 5 x 5/pack or 10 x 5/pack may be a better option since you will need to replace them often.
Hope this helps!

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.

I was interested in increased health precautions with my Philips CPAP Machine, and the Sunset Healthcare CPAP Bacteria Filter filled the bill for me. It is well designed, easy to install, and works well. I now regularly purchase the bacteria filter in combination with my other CPAP Supplies.

Subject: Easy to install
People need to read and understand that Phillips (the manufacturer of the machines) and not Respshop is to blame for this issue. The filter is super easy to install. 1) Remove tubing from the machine 2) Put the larger end of the filter end where tubing usually goes 3) Attach hose to smaller end

Subject: bacterial filter for my cpap
I bought this to catch any particles that may get blown through the air tube on my dreamstation CPAP due to the recall. It worked just fine. Just make sure you get the right size for your tubing. It did not reduce the airflow and it gave me a greater sense of security while waiting for the replacement machine came in.

If you are caught in the recall if Phillips CPAPS this is the way to go until your machine is replaced. Filters work great. Each one is good for about a week. Very surprised how much it catches. I’ll continue using with my new CPAP.

Subject: Respshop
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.

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!

Fantastic inline filter for your CPAP hose. This is especially important if your CPAP has been recalled and you are waiting for action from Philips. This inline filter will remove any particulates.

Bought to use due to recall. It's not a 100% solution but maybe an ok option to help short term. I have a heated tube and this does not connect to heated tube on machine side. Had to wear at top of my mask on had where my tube plugs in which is not ideal.
Switched to non heated tube and can use on machine end.

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.

John H
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.

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

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
