Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.
So we have heard everything in this thread regarding mask replacement from every 2 weeks (often mentioned just for pillows) up to 6 months to a year. Not sure why this is so hard to nail down, but it seems like if the pillows or mask starts leaking more, then it might be time
FYI, my sleep doc recommends 3-6 months for mask replacement. My DME sends a new one every 3 months. The doc does not recommend this schedule for anything to do with bacteria or germs; he recommends it because the plastic breaks down. I sort of thought plastic was the one thing that would be here with the cockroaches long after we and the animals depart, so this seems odd to me.
I guess the only thing we know for sure is that masks don't last forever, and probably not as long as we might expect.
