Setting up your equipment

 

How does your equipment all fit together?

Your therapy system is most likely made up of a mask, tubing, humidifier, and the device itself.

Why not take a look at your therapy system to see if you can identify all the parts.

Knowing what to do (and what not to do) when setting up your equipment can make all the difference to your treatment.

Here are some tips:

  • Firstly make sure you place your device on a flat, stable surface, where there’s little chance it will get covered by books or clothing.
  • Place it close enough to you that you can reach the controls while you’re in bed.
  • Leave plenty of room around the device, and make sure it’s not too close to a wall or heater.

Your care provider or equipment supplier should have shown you how to connect your device and mask. If you’re having any problems, see your product user guide, which has clear instructions on setting up your device.

You can also feel free to contact your equipment provider for helpful advice.
