The 24 inch Humidifier Hose with Rubber Ends is the same quality item that comes as standard with virtually all stand-alone heated or passover humidifiers. It will work with most of the available models. The extra length of the 24 inch hose is useful with the Fisher & Paykel heated humidifiers.
All CPAP.com brand hoses are smooth bore designed. This means there are no ridges inside the hose for air pressure to resist against. The hose is supported by a molded plastic frame is located on the outside of the hose. This design provides consistent pressure delivery and ensures a quieter performing hose.
The 24 inch Humidifier Hose with Rubber Ends hose does not work with the LX "Oasis" passover humidifier by Respironics. That humidifier required a special hose that is no longer manufactured by Respironics.
This product DOES NOT contain latex rubber.
A heated CPAP hose contains copper coils embedded in, or wrapped around, the hose. These coils are gently heated to conduct a constant temperature throughout the length of the hose. This enhances the comfort of the therapy and reduces or eliminates rainout caused by the water condensing as it travels through the hose to the mask.
Heated hoses are more expensive alternatives to cloth tubing insulation, but they prevent rainout in nearly all cases. The Hybernite Rainout Control System is a stand alone option that can be used with any machine to prevent rainout and increase delivered humidification.
Some manufacturers have developed heated hoses to work specifically with select machines in their product lines. The ClimateLineAir™ Heated Tube for AirSense™ 10 and AirCurve™ 10 Machines is an example of a heated hose used by the AirSense™ 10 and AirCurve™ 10 Machines.
Here are some heated hoses we carry:
Your CPAP hose will last longer if it is detached every morning and hung to air dry.
Drying the hose each morning will also prevent bacteria from growing in the damp interior and help reduce the possibility of colds and other health issues. Remember, what is in the hose goes into the airway.
If you are not drying the hose daily, then be sure to replace the hose very frequently as negative health issues will result!
