Are CPAP machines loud?

Generally, most modern CPAP machines are very quiet. However, may depend on the model of your machine.

One of the biggest concerns of most people (and their partners!) starting out on CPAP therapy is whether or not their device is going to be loud.

The answer to this question is that it depends on the model of machine you are using.

Thankfully, most modern CPAP machines are extremely quiet. This means you and your partner will be able to enjoy a quiet night’s sleep without the worry of a noisy machine.

The sound coming from a CPAP machine can be best described as ‘continuous and comfortable white noise.'

If you are hearing lots of noise from your CPAP machine, you may need to adjust your mask to minimise leak.
