CPAP machines are used at night by people with issues of sleep apnea which is a disorder where one stops breathing when asleep. This disorder leads to sleepless nights, so the machine was invented to assist people with breathing. The machine pressurizes air, so when a patient sleeps the machines keep their airway open preventing the loss of breath. A key component to the machine is adding moisture to the air which requires the use of water. Distilled water is required to prevent the growth of bacteria and minerals building up in the machine.
