While obstructive sleep apnea is a serious medical condition, modern technology has ushered in a host of effective solutions.
One of the most common involves the nightly use of a PAP (positive airway pressure) machine. However, one issue involves sanitizing the various components on a regular basis. The good news is that a great product has taken the marketplace by storm – and greatly simplified the sanitizing process.
The LiViliti Paptizer Smart Sanitizer is an easy solution to guarantee that your PAP and its components will not incur germs and bacteria.
Let's first take a quick look at how the Paptizer functions before examining its impressive benefits.
The LiViliti Paptizer Smart Sanitizer: A Brief Overview
Manufactured by the team of experts at Liviliti, the portable nature of this product is an impressive feature. It’s perfect for people who lead active lives – and at only 4.29 pounds (1.94 kilograms), it is also extremely lightweight.
The Paptizer employs ultraviolet-C (UVC) rays to sterilize PAP components quickly and effectively. UVC light is capable of killing more than 99 percent of all bacteria in less than three minutes – quick, efficient, and highly effective.
This device contains 40 UVC bulbs that have been placed at various internal locations. This allows the light to be emitted in a multidirectional manner, ensuring that all components are effectively sanitized quickly.
Also, this sanitizer can be used for sanitizing other items, thanks to the non-destructive nature of its UVC lights. Examples include (but are not limited to) mobile phones, keys, face masks, and similar objects that are prone to accumulating bacteria.
How Does This Unit Differ from Traditional PAP Sanitizers?
The majority of PAP sanitizers on the marketplace employ ozone gas. While moderately effective, there are still several problems associated with this approach.
Certain bacteria and germs can become resistant to ozone, increasing the chances that the components will not be properly sanitized.
Furthermore, sanitizers using ozone are equipped with filters. These filters will need to be changed approximately two times each year. Not only is this a time-consuming process, but the filters themselves can be somewhat expensive.
Finally, ozone sanitizers will require time to "recharge" (generally one hour or more) before they are able to be activated again. This can be problematic if you need to clean multiple accessories on a frequent basis.
So, how is the Paptizer different?
First and foremost, the use of highly concentrated UVC rays will ensure that bacteria and germs do not stand a chance, providing users with peace of mind in knowing that their PAP accessories have been properly sanitized.
Unlike ozone devices, there is no recharging time between cycles – thanks to the LED bulbs. In other words, this unit can be immediately reactivated when required.
The nature of UVC will also not cause damage to any PAP components. This is an important concern in terms of warranties that might otherwise be voided through the use of ozone.
The Paptizer is also cost-effective. No filters will need to be changed and overall maintenance is a cinch. Those who have become frustrated with ozone filters should be pleased with this device.
Additional Benefits of the LiViliti Paptizer UVC LED Smart Sanitizer
Sanitizing time can sometimes be an issue. Ozone-powered devices may require several minutes to completely sanitize the PAP components. The good news is that the Paptizer can complete this task in no more than three minutes.
This unit can likewise accommodate all of the most common accessories used to treat obstructive sleep apnea. Common examples include:
- Removable water chambers.
- Mask Headgear.
- Mask Cushions
- Nasal Pillows
Don’t forget, it’s also capable of sanitizing everyday items such as cell phones, credit cards, and jewelry.
Another feature that sets the Paptizer smart sanitizer apart from the others – it will eliminate odors in specific accessories (such as mouthpieces and breathing tubes). This is largely due to the fact that UVC rays are capable of breaking down the molecules that are associated with unpleasant smells.
Another positive feature – the Paptizer does not contain any dangerous substances. For instance, mercury may be present in some traditional ozone sanitizers. This is a concern from a health and safety point of view.
Thankfully, the Paptizer only utilizes ultraviolet light to effectively eliminate germs and bacteria.
Medical-Grade Sanitizing at Home
This cutting-edge smart sanitizer employs a combination of heat, light, and internally circulated air to rid important PAP components of harmful bacteria and odors.
These are the very same techniques that have been used to sterilize medical equipment for decades. The good news is – individuals can now access these very same benefits from the comfort of their homes or even while traveling.
How to Use the Paptizer
- Plug the power supply into the port on the back of the Paptizer. Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
- Open the lid by pressing the OPEN button on the front of the Paptizer.
- Place the stainless-steel rack inside. Place your item to be sanitized on top of the rack.
- Close the lid and press the ON/OFF button to power up the Paptizer. All buttons should be illuminated
- Choose from 3 easy-to-use cleaning modes:
Fast Sanitize – 3-minute sanitizing cycle ideal for when you want an item sanitized quickly and ready to use immediately.
Auto Mode – This cycle goes through a 3-minute sanitizing cycle, then a 60-minute smart drying cycle begins. This will dry small leftover water particles. A sensor will determine if another 30, 60 or 90-minute drying cycle is needed. When drying is complete, the Paptizer will switch to sanitized storage, which uses low light UVC LEDs to keep items sanitized up to 24 hours or until the lid is opened, or the machine turned off.
Fast Sanitize and Sanitized Storage – 3-minute sanitizing cycle followed by sanitized storage, which uses low light UVC LEDs to keep items sanitized for up to 24 hours or until the lid is opened or the machine turned off.
Here is one recent review to illustrate its overall efficacy:
"Great piece of equipment! Works great, easy to use, keeps all of my equipment clean and sterile."
Five out of five stars.
Your PAP device is a lifesaver – but it must function at an optimal level at all times. The LiVilliti Paptizer sanitizer will provide the user-friendly solution that you have been looking for.
