Ozone can kill any virus or bacteria known to man—including the flu.

The SoClean can add an additional layer of safety to CPAP therapy which is especially important during the current flu season.

Viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules. Unlike bacteria, they multiply only within one host cell. They transform protein of the host cell into proteins of their own. Activated oxygen or ozone is a natural molecule that is formed when a third atom of oxygen is introduced into the common two-atom molecule that makes up the air we breathe. This molecule becomes “super-charged” and has the ability to oxidize, or destroy many other molecules found in nature. Ozone destroys the flu virus and other viruses by diffusing through the protein coat resulting in killing of the virus. Better Rest Solutions’ new product, SoClean™ utilizes ozone to sanitize CPAP equipment which kills any bacteria or virus that might be living in or on the end-users equipment and mask.

During one of the worst flu seasons seen in many years, the SoClean can play an extremely important role in keeping the CPAP user healthy. The flu virus can be transmitted by touching contaminated surfaces. The next step in the transmission involves touching ones face or any object, like the CPAP mask that makes contact with the face. The SoClean can break the chain of transmission by killing any virus that might be present on CPAP equipment before it contacts our face. Besides the flu virus, other pathogens can contaminate CPAP equipment, causing sinus infections and related respiratory problems. The SoClean is effective on those as well.

“Before using this machine, I had a nagging cough and often got bronchitis. All of that cleared up after I started using the SoClean,” said Thomas Zito, SoClean end-user.

But is ozone safe for the end-user? Discussions have been rising on the safety of home-use of ozone for sanitization. As powerful as it is, this molecule is self-limiting, in that shortly after it is formed it reverts back into normal oxygen. The average person may equate the word “ozone” with smog. While ozone can at times be a component of smog, smog primarily consists of toxic hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds.

Some people feel that ozone should not be used by the average homeowner and that it should only be handled by professionals because of how powerful a sanitizer it is. Yet many make daily use of such a powerful product—bleach. Chlorine bleach is incredibly powerful and can be dangerous—even lethal. Yet homeowners are perfectly comfortable using bleach because they understand that it can be handled in a safe way. The effectiveness of the product makes it worth following the necessary precautions. Ozone reacts 3,000 times faster than chlorine and can kill any virus or bacteria known to man.

Now enters the SoClean device and its innovative use of ozone to sanitize CPAP equipment. Though ozone’s use may go unnoticed, ozone continues to be the method of choice when it comes to safe, effective sanitizing.

What separates the SoClean from other devices is that it never releases ozone into the outside environment. It generates ozone and sanitizes CPAP equipment within a closed-loop system. Any gas that escapes this process passes through a special filter that converts it back into breathable oxygen first. Residual ozone that remains in the system naturally reverts back into the air we breathe in about two hours time.

Better Rest Solutions’ innovative technology automatically completes the daily chore of sanitizing a CPAP mask, hose, and reservoir without any disassembly. It uses this ozone to eliminate any mold, bacteria, and viruses it comes in contact with—safely and effectively.

“Our goal here at Better Rest Solutions is to enhance and improve the sleep experience and overall health of those with sleep disorders. The SoClean can add an additional layer of safety to CPAP therapy which is especially important during the current flu season.” said Michael Schmidt, President of Better Rest Solutions. “The SoClean was designed to make CPAP cleaning easier and more thorough than ever before. Knowing that our users are enjoying the added benefit of better health is extremely satisfying.”
