SoClean 2 – Automatic CPAP Cleaner and sanitizer device
The importance of CPAP for patients who can fortunately breathe on their own is simply enormous, serving as a ventilator that applies mild air pressure continuously to keep their airways opened so that they can keep breathing without struggling. That is great except that molds and bacteria will not leave our recovering brothers and sisters alone finding their way into the CPAP equipment. Thankfully, the SoClean 2 – CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizer is here to deal with them and is arguably one of the best you will find on the market as this review will reveal.
SoClean 2 Description and Key Features
The SoClean CPAP Cleaner and sanitizer as its name suggests is a CPAP equipment cleaner but not just that, it is also a sanitizer. It will disinfect your CPAP accessories such as the hose, the mask, the reservoir and even the water in it as well without having to pull them apart. And you don’t have to mix or apply any messy chemicals, not even water leaving the device completely dry yet so effective. The inside chamber has enough space- 5.5 inches x 5.5 inches x 7.25 inches in dimensions- to house different kinds of masks such as nasal pillows or full CPAP masks yet the entire unit weighs just 5.6 pounds. Most full face masks will also fit into it with the exception of maybe a full face mask. The best of all, it is automated which makes it the world’s first ever automated CPAP cleaner. Other special features are the user interface it comes with, the small footprints, cycle indicator lights, its compact and swift design, quick cleaning and the Easy Clean/ Sanitizing system. It consumes just 5 watts of power and the cord is long enough (4’8″).
