How do I clean my Respironics EverFlo Filters?

So it's time for your annual filter maintenance on your Respironics EverFlo...

What do you need to do?

Maintenance on the EverFlo is pretty simple!! There are generally 2 filters. One internal filter called a Bacteria Filter, and the main Hepa filter that is behind the access door on the rear of the oxygen concentrator. Some  EverFlo machines are equipped with an accessory foam cabinet filter that goes on the top rear grate on the rear of the machine.

The internal Bacteria filter is classified as a "lifetime" filter. This means that the filter only needs to be changed if the oxygen concentrator is put on a new patient, or if the machine has major repairs performed. Otherwise you can leave it installed.

The Hepa filter is a pleated paper filter contained in a plastic housing. It is not serviceable. Do not ever attempt to clean it by running water through it. You simply throw it away, and replace it with a new one.

If your machine has the accessory foam filter, simply remove it from its holder, rinse clean in your sink, and let it air dry thoroughly before reinstalling it. If your machine does NOT have this filter, we HIGHLY recommend you purchase it. The amount of debris, lint, and pet hair it stops from entering your machine is amazing. The cleaner the inside of your machine is, the cooler it will run, and the longer it will last.

That's it! You're ready for another year!!
