I just learned I have sleep apnea and am being fitted with a CPAP. What do I need to know about using CPAP as it relates to my MAC and bronchiectasis?
It seems like disinfecting may be a problem. I don't think CPAP mask, tubing, etc can be boiled like my nebulizer and Aerobika. How do bronchiectasis patients sterilize their CPAP?
The CPAP has a humidifier which creates a mist. Will I have to buy Sterile Water from a Medical Supply so I don't introduce more bacteria into my lungs?
