What do I do when I get my equipment home for the first night of my CPAP therapy?

Here are some tips on getting you started on your CPAP therapy.

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 sleep apnea machine on a flat, stable surface, where there's little chance it will get covered.
  • Place it close enough to you that you can reach the controls while you're in bed.
  • Leave plenty of room around the machine, and make sure it's not too close to a wall or heater.

Your doctor or ResMed authorised distributor should have shown you how to connect your sleep apnea machine and mask. If you're having any problems, see your product user guide, which has clear instructions on setting up.
