RE: CP Machine
Most insurance companies will replace them during the fifth or 6th year.

My S7 was on it's sixth or so. Others manage to get theirs to live much longer.

Take care of the machine and it should, theoretically, last a long time.

RE: CP Machine
In US ... 5 years ... per insurance replacement schedule

CPAP can last for many years but as with everything thing, manufactures keep coming out new features, next machine might wash dishes and put the garbage out. For now any new feature might be just to do with electronically data transfer
