"As of now I no longer have to use a chin strap.  I am anxious about the sleep study.  Wondering if I will be able to sleep WITHOUT the CPAP….even thought I hate it it is a part of every night now and is what I am used to.  "

"Some folks run their humidifiers in passover mode- not turning on the heat just letting the air blow over the water.  That would not give any heat though. "

"Interesting, I actually feel a little better when I don't use the humidifier, but the humidifier helps with sinuses. The cold air stuff's me up. Gonna try running heat and a nasal spray"

Has anyone tried this machine?  If it does what it say -- fully sanitize the mask, headgear and tank -- it sounds like a real benefit and likely worth the cost.

I was planning to try it, but will have to wait awhile.  I contacted them with questions and they are still in the R & D phase in terms of a fitting that works with the Resmed S9/H5i humidifier with the heated Climateline tubing.

There is one review on Amazon.  There is also a YouTube video showing how to insert the injection hose into the original H5i chamber.  I have the more easily cleaned chamber, (it disassembles and allegedly is dishwasher safe) which I highly recommend (the chamber, not the dishwasher cleaning!). They said it is much easier to get the injection hose into the chamber I use, save for the Climateline hose connection issue which will require a special coupler to connect the SoClean hose to the S9.

The mask cushon and frame have an air tight seal . Would  liquid get in there to clean? Wouldnt

 you separate the mask parts?{ to expose all nooks and crannies } Good Sleep,Chris

No liquid circulates, just O3, so there is no need to disassemble anything nor to drain the humidifier.  The device streams Ozone through the humidifier and mask.  The concept is a one time set-up and then you just pop the still-attached mask into the cleaning box every day.  See the manual at https://betterrestsolutions.com/assets/images/pdf/soclean_manual_re...

03 gets it all eek ....keep fluffy away....

How much are you looking at for cost? 

 

The SoClean lists for $349 but is now available for $199. If you sign up for their e-newsletter (send a note to info@betterrestsolutions.com to sign up) and you'll get a code for an additional $25 off.

Here's a link to a review written by a reporter in Michigan: http://sleepingwithcpap.blogspot.com/2012/03/review-of-soclean-sani....

Hope this helps.
