Your CPAP machine needs electricity to run. If the electricity goes out during a thunderstorm or blackout, you could be stuck without your CPAP therapy. Electricity levels can fluctuate during a storm and lead to power surges, which can damage the CPAP machine if it’s not plugged into a power surge protector.
